Eyelid Surgery | (Blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the eye area by removing excess skin with or without fatty tissue from either upper or lower eyelids. Patients usually complain of looking tired. Blepharoplasty can improve the appearance. In some cases, a better result can be obtained in conjunction with other procedures such as brow lift or Botulinum toxin injections (Botox). Blepharoplasty of the lower lid will eliminate baggy folds of skin below the eyes.

Blepharoplasty surgery typically takes between 1-2 hours to complete and may be performed either under local or general anaesthetic. If the operation is performed on just the upper or lower lids, less time is needed. An overnight stay is often required to minimize post-operative swelling and bruising.


Typically, it takes approximately 7-10 days to fully recovery from Blepharoplasty surgery, however some patients may return to work within 4-5 days.
