BLEPHAROPLASTY (EYELID SURGERY)

Frequently asked questions

The skin quality and youthful volume of eyelids change over time with aging. If you feel your eyes have a tired look and you have excess upper eyelid skin, or loose and baggy lower eyelids, then this procedure might be beneficial to you.

The aim of upper eyelid blepharoplasty is to mainly remove the excess skin, hooding, for a more youthful look. The upper eyelid is the best place in the body to put a scar and consequently it tends to heal extremely well, hidden in your natural eyelid creases.

This procedure is performed under local anaesthetic.
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a more complex procedure performed under general anaesthetic. It aims to address the slight loss of support and structure of the lower eyelid that develops with aging and some of the excess skin. It is used to remove eyelid bags and to soften the effects of aging for a more youthful and less tired look.

An incision is made just under your eyelid line, extended to one of your natural, crow’s feet, creases on the side. Through this, the deep tissues are tightened to recreate support, excess bulging fat is removed and finally the excess skin is trimmed.

Upper blepharoplasty:

These include mild discomfort, infection, bleeding, bruising, swelling, asymmetry, dryness, watery eyes, dehiscence and delayed wound healing, need for revision and lagophthalmos (inability to fully close the eyes at night-time, this improves over time).

Lower blepharoplasty:

The general risks are similar to the above. However, this is a more complex procedure than upper eyelid surgery. On the whole, the recovery is a little longer and the bruising and swelling might take a week or so more to resolve with the final result being evident at about three months.
There is a rare risk of ectropion (eyelid being pulled down) and an even rarer risk of experiencing bleeding behind the eye, which if not corrected immediately (usually by going back to surgery), can lead to blindness. However, this is very rare indeed.

Dry eyes can also be troublesome and will be treated with moisturising drops until this improves over a course of about six to eight weeks.
