Eyelid Surgery / Lifts

Procedure - Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).

Anaesthesia - Conscious sedation with local Anaesthesia or General Anaesthesia.

Facility - Ambulatory surgery or overnight stay.

Recovery - Pain is minimal. Swelling reaches a peak at 24 – 48 hours after surgery before if starts to reduce. Bruises usually do not last beyond 5 – 7 days. Back to work 3 – 7 days. Makeup can be applied after one week.

Costs - Price may vary based on plastic surgeon’s fees, type of anaesthesia, and the setting used for the cosmetic surgery.

General - Patients, male and females, often complain of droopy eyelids and dark circles and puffy bags under the eyes which give the appearance of tiredness and sadness even when they feel rested and relaxed. The eyelid cosmetic surgery addresses this issue by removing excess skin, remodeling the fat bags and tightening the eyelid muscles. Removal of skin from the upper lids is sometimes necessary to correct obstruction of the visual field by the heavy skin. Upper eyelid muscle tightening (Ptosis correction) or lower lid muscle tightening done through suspension stitches, is sometimes associated with the standard Blepharoplasty procedure . Eyelid procedure can be done as an isolated plastic surgery procedure or combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures such as brow lift, face lift, cosmetic Laser resurfacing, rhinoplasty and others. The surgery can be done under local anaesthesia as an ambulatory procedure or under general anaesthetic in an operating suite. Incisions are well concealed in the natural creases of the upper and lower lids. On occasion, approach through the inside of the eyelid (Trans conjunctival blepharoplasty) is required. Laser resurfacing or light chemical peel of the eyelid overlying skin could be combined with the blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery as well.
