BLEPHAROPLASTY

Blepharoplasty

A surgical eye lift to correct deformities like bags under the eyes or sagging eyelids, by repositioning tissue and removing excess skin.

SURGICAL EYE LIFT

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that enhances the appearance of the eye area to give you a more rested and youthful appearance. Through a small surgical incision, the surgeon might reposition fat to get rid of bagginess or remove excess skin, making subtle and effective changes to address the effects of genetics, stress or general ageing.

 

In most cases the doctor will address the hanging upper eyelids first, before moving onto those puffy bags or under-eye concerns. A small cut will allow the surgeon to remove excess fat, muscle and skin as required, and in some cases, they’ll redeposit these tissues into other areas around your eye before carefully closing the incision.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

CONDITIONS

Our brows start to drop with age as muscles around the eye lose tone and elasticity, resulting in a tired and droopy look.

Puffy eyes and dark circles can appear under the eyes due to ageing, stress, fatigue, genetics or other skin characteristics. In ageing, this condition is due to the weakening of tissues around the eye area, which causes the movement of fat into the lower eyelids for support.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The results are dependend on the type of procedure you and your doctor agree upon. The effects of an endoscopic brow lift can last five to seven years, while upper-eyelid skin removal can last for up to twelve years.

The recovery time is relatively shorter than other types of surgeries. The team will immediately move you to a recovery room after surgery, allowing time to ensure you have no side effects. Patients with no complications will go home the same day and their eyes might be covered with a gauze to protect the area. It generally takes 2-3 weeks before symptoms of swelling and pain are completely gone.

Some swelling or pain might occur after the procedure and it’s important to rest for a couple of days after surgery. You need to allow 2-3 weeks for the symptoms to completely dissipate and ice packs or Ibuprofen are only some of the solutions your doctor might recommend. Blurry vision and sensitivity to light are also possible short-term side effects.

The wearing of contact lenses are not allowed for the first two weeks post-surgery and we recommend that you have alternative prescription glasses at hand.

It might have a ‘softening effect’ on wrinkles, but an eye lift will not eliminate dark circles under the eyes, crow’s feet, or other facial wrinkles.
