Blepharoplasty (Eyelid) Sydney

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid) Sydney

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that modifies the eyelidsboth upper and lower by the removal of excess skin and fat.

As the ageing process occurs excess skin sometimes extends over the upper eye lids and peripheral vision is often impaired. Some young people can also be affected by this.

Lower eyelid Blepharoplasty is mainly performed for cosmetic reasons to reduce puffiness or ‘bags’. It is therefore a procedure that can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons.

When it comes to expressing your deepest thoughts and emotions there is no facial feature quite as important as your eyes. If they look tired, saggy or puffy not only can your appearance suffer but the image you project to others may also be affected.

Chronic allergies can cause the eyelids to swell, speeding the development of overhanging upper lids or bags under the eyes. Sun exposure, excessive squinting and habitual eye rubbing can promote sagginess and heredity also plays a very significant part in the process.

Fortunately, eyelid problems can be treated very effectively through Blepharoplasty, a relatively simple procedure that removes excess skin, muscle and fatty tissue. Blepharoplasty can open your eyes dramatically to give you a fresher, brighter and more youthful appearance.

Eyelid Surgery

As we grow older, the muscles and skin surrounding the eyelids can become baggy and loose and this tends to make us look tired and older. Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, can help to alleviate this problem and can give a more youthful look and may also help patients to see better.

This eyelid surgery can be performed on either the upper lids or the lower lids or both. The excess upper eyelid skin, which gives patients a hooded eye look, is removed and because the sutures are in the crease of the eyelid, the scar is generally not visible when the eye is open. The excess loose skin and fat under the lower eyelids is removed during the eyelid surgery by an incision on the inside of the eye so there is not visible scar.

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is generally performed under local anaesthesia but may be done under a light sedation if the patient so desires. The eyelid surgery takes approximately 1 hour for both upper and lower eyelids on both eyes. No strenuous exercise should be undertaken for about a week following the eyelid surgery and the eyelids tend to be bruised for a few days post-surgery. The sutures are usually removed within 3-5 days and patients generally return to work after one week. Make-up may be worn should bruising still be visible.

Peace of mind and client confidence is very important to us, and this is exactly what we provide as part of each and every one of our Eye surgery procedures.
