Eyelift surgery or blepharoplasty is designed to remove excess skin in the upper and/or lower eyelids. At times, this excess skin is also accompanied by the presence of fat pads or fat pockets which are typically under the lower eyelashes. Alternatively, there are cases where there are only fat pockets and no excess skin.
This surgery performed by Dr. Nashielli is performed to correct any or all of the above conditions in the upper and lower eyelids, including the drooping that can make people look tired or sad. This will ultimately give an overall more youthful result to the entire face making the eyes more open and rejuvenated. Nashielli Plastic Surgery in Mexico will help you achieve the results you are looking for.
Benefits of an EyeLift
Eyelift surgery comes with both aesthetic and functional benefits that patients can experience. First, this surgical procedure in Mexico is ideal for those who experience sagging skin in the eyelids that create a sad and droop appearance. For some people, this saggy skin becomes so severe, that it begins to impair vision. Removing the skin will improve one’s aesthetic appeal and improve visual prowess in the process.
Are You A Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
The ideal patient for blepharoplasty is in good physical health and has realistic expectations. If you suffer from sagging skin in the eyelids that causes you to look older or obstructs your vision, the eyelift may be a good fit for you. We’ll discuss your medical history and perform an examination of your eyes during a consultation in our Mexico office to determine if the surgery is right for you.

Eye Lids Needed Lifting
“Definitely needed to have my upper eyelids lifted. An assessment appointment with Dr. Nashielle was easily arranged and a surgical date was set up at that time. Dr. Nashielle is very pleasant and approachable and very professional. You can ask as many questions as you need to make you comfortable with the procedure and she thoroughly explains. Surgery at her Guadalajara hospital is very efficient, all are professional and the post-op is excellent. Follow-up is also excellent. A wonderful experience. Would definitely go back to her and her team for anything else I needed.”
As with any surgery, there are risks that will be evaluated and discussed in the consultation, as some of them will depend on your own personal medical history.
Some possible complications could be droopy lower lids (which resolve with time), asymmetry of scars, eyelid swelling, temporary double or blurred vision and/or wound opening (extremely rare).
Recovery is generally very fast! Typically, if post-op instructions are followed, most bruising and swelling will be gone in less than two weeks. During the first few days, it is necessary to limit your physical activity to avoid increased inflammation. By the third week, you will have a much more natural look because most of the swelling will be gone. We recommend taking Arnica 3-5 days prior to surgery and continuing with the Arnica for at least one week after. It is important to stay cool and rest, use ice to reduce swelling every couple of hours on your eyes, and sleep propped up. You will be given detailed instructions for your particular procedure by Dr. Nashielli in Mexico. After one or two weeks your results will already be very noticeable; however, it will take several months for the healing process to be completed. You will see your final results in about 6 months.
The surgery for both upper and lower lids will typically take 1 ½ to 2 hours.
Dr. Nashielli uses a light IV sedation typically known as “twilight” sedation. Following IV sedation, local injections of anesthesia are used around the eyes. After the surgery, you will go into the recovery room where you will stay for around 1 hour before you will be ready to return to where you are staying as this is an ambulatory procedure. Before leaving, you will be given instructions on aftercare as well as any prescriptions you may need. In addition, your first follow-up appointment will be scheduled between 5-7 days after surgery to remove the stitches.
The incisions for the upper eyes are done in the crease of the upper lid and the incisions for the lower eyes are done just below the lash line. Initially, the incision areas will be red and inflamed. As time passes, they will turn pink and eventually fade to a fine, white line. Again, following the proper aftercare instructions is imperative to get the best results. Sunglasses and a hat are recommended to protect your eyes if you are going outside during the day.
