Blepharoplasty or Eye Bag Removal Surgery can lift drooping upper lids and reduce puffy eye bags that form below your eyes.

More Rested, Younger Looking Eyes

We can operate either on upper or lower lids or combination of upper and lower. We often perform this surgery in conjunction with other facial procedures such as a facelift.

What To Expect From A Blepharoplasty

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

Blepharoplasty surgery is an operation that usually takes up to two hours to complete using a general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic plus sedation. Blepharoplasty is usually carried out as a day surgery.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

For the upper eyelids the cut is made in the natural crease line that occurs above the eyelashes. The incisions may extend into the crows feet or laughter lines at the outer corners of your eyes. We remove fat, sagging muscle and skin. The surgeon finished by closing the incisions.

For the lower eyelids, the incision starts underneath the eyelashes and extends out approximately one centimetre outwards into the crows feet area. The surgeon lifts the skin upwards and outwards, gently tensioning the area. He removes any overlapping skin after. Finally, he closes the wound with very fine sutures.

Surgery can be carried out either as a day surgery or an overnight stay in hospital.

What is the Recovery Period?

Stitches are normally removed five to seven days after surgery at which time normal activity may be resumed.*

As we age, we can develop eye bags and/or hooding over the upper eyelids which due to the effects of gravity, genetics, sun damage and the stresses and strains of daily life. This process has an ageing effect and can make us appear continually tired.

*Please note that the indicated recovery time and healing time are unique to each individual.

At 66 years old and I was getting fed up with the extra fatty tissues that had grown on my upper eyelids as it kept interfering with my make up. All the staff were absolutely fantastic. Thank you so much for all your help in doing this procedure.
