For removal of excess skin on eyelids*
Otherwise known as heavy eyelids, droopy under lids, baggy eyes, puffy eyes, eye lid surgery or crepey eyelids.
Eyelid reduction (“blepharoplasty”) is a common aesthetic procedure for men and women who have developed eye bags or saggy upper lids, sometimes both, as they age. This delicate operation removes the excess crepy or loose eyelid skin and bulging fat around the eyes to create a more radiant and youthful appearance. It can also improve the visual field. The operation can be performed for the upper and lower eyelids under local or general anaesthetic.
During the operation, the surgeon will make cuts around the natural lines of your eyelid and remove the excess damaged skin and sculpt the fat pad of the eyelid to reduce baggy under eyelids. Upper eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia. However, lower eyelid blepharoplasties and combined upper and lower lid blepharoplasty are usually performed under general anaesthesia.
During standard eyelid operations, other necessary adjustments might be made such as: internal lifting of the eyebrow, upper part of the cheek and lifting of the corners of the eyelid, with or without tightening them. Naturally this operation is more extensive and time consuming.
How many treatments will you need?*
This is a one-off procedure, with approximately two weeks recovery time – although this depends upon how you heal.
The procedure can improve the visual field and open the eyes up – creating a more radiant and youthful appearance.
