Cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below the eyes – features that make you look older or more tired than you feel. In some cases, it can even improve vision that is impaired by sagging lids.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, typically takes one hour and is usually performed under general anaesthetic. Blepharoplasty involves removing excess fat muscle and skin from the eyelid. This treatment is a good option for patients wishing for a more youthful, fresher appearance.
Eyelid surgery can be performed in conjunction with a facelift or brow lift.
This procedure will not remove crow's feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under the eyes or lift sagging eyebrows.
Swelling, bruising, and sensitivity to light may occur post-surgery, but will resolve within 10 days to two weeks.
