Blepharoplasty Surgery

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a specialized surgical procedure that removes excess skin or fat from the eyelids to improve the look of hooded eyes, droopy eyelids or eye bags. It can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or on both.

For Upper Blepharoplasty, an incision is made along the upper eyelid crease to minimize any visible scarring. Excess skin, fat and muscle is then removed prior to the incision being closed up with very fine stitches. For Lower Blepharoplasty, the incision is made just below the lower lashes or on the inside of the eyelid. Excess fat is then removed from the undereye area (‘eye bags’) prior to being sutured.

The results of Blepharoplasty surgery are long lasting. To ensure that the results look good for as long as possible, you should lead a healthy lifestyle and enjoy a healthy diet, avoid smoking, follow a good skincare routine and avoid excessive exposure to the sun.
