Eyelids

EYELID SURGERY (Blepharoplasty)

This is one of the most common and popular procedures carried out in modern day cosmetic surgery.

This procedure reshapes the upper eyelid or lower eyelid by the removal and/or repositioning of excess tissue as well as strengthening surrounding muscles and tendons. The procedure greatly improves the appearance of sagging upper eyelids and puffy lower "bags".

Blepharoplasty is performed through external incisions made along the natural skin lines of the eyelids, such as the creases of the upper lids and below the lashes of the lower lids, or from the inside surface of the lower eyelid.


Initial swelling and bruising take one to two weeks to resolve. Depending upon the scope of the procedure, the operation takes one to three hours to complete.

The anatomy of the upper/lower eyelids, patients' skin quality, patients' age, and the adjacent bones and soft tissue all affect the cosmetic and functional outcomes after blepharoplasty.
The manner in which eyelid surgery can dramatically alter a person's appearance is best appreciated by comparing before and after photos of surgical patients at the end of this page.

Recovery

Eyelid swelling and bruising under the eyes are a normal part of post-operative recovery. Rest and cold compresses, applied with pressure, are recommended for the first 7 to 10 days after surgery. Stitches are normally removed on the 4th – 6th day after surgery.
After 10 to 14 days, patients can apply cosmetics / make up as notmal, including make-up, sports and strenuous activities can normally recommence 3 to 4 weeks. You should avoid direct sun light during this period. Patients are also advised to wear high protection (SPF16+), sunglasses and hats for 6 to 8 weeks after your procedure.
