Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)


The eyes are one of the first areas to show the signs of ageing. Fatty deposits and excess skin below and above the eye can be displeasing aesthetically and have an unflattering and ageing effect on the entire face. However, there are simple procedures to rectify these problems.

Upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed separately or both together under local or general anaesthesia, and takes between 30 to 75 minutes. During the upper lid blepharoplasty the surgeon will create small incisions in the natural folds of the upper eyelid, and for lower lid surgery just below the lower eyelashes. Excess skin and tissue will then be removed and the area closed with very fine stitches to minimize scarring.

An overnight stay in hospital is, in most cases, not required, therefore, the patient is free to return home a couple of hours after the operation. Stitches will be removed after 5-7 days.
