Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery
What is Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that targets the eyelid area – producing dramatic results and quickly reversing years of aging.
There’s no feature of the face more important than the eyes. As ‘the windows to the soul’ they are uniquely expressive of the person you are, and they become the natural focus for anyone looking at your face.
Sadly, they can also become one of the clearest indicators of your age. As the skin above the eyes loses its natural elasticity it can sag. This results in the eyes developing a semi-closed appearance – very different to the bright, wide-eyed look of the young. And the lower eyelids can be equally affected, often sagging and forming wrinkles or ‘bags’ that create a tired, stressed, or unhealthy look.

Who is a Blepharoplasty Suitable For?
The procedure is equally suitable for either male or female patients and is most popular with those in middle-age.
How is a Blepharoplasty Performed?
The patient is administered a local anesthetic before small incisions are made to the upper and lower eyelids and excess skin and sub-dermal fat is removed. The remaining skin is left in a significantly more toned condition – restoring the appearance of youth.
How Common Are Negative After-Effects?
While some bruising and tenderness is common the vast majority of patients will experience a safe, highly-effective procedure – with no lasting after-effects. The incisions typically heal quickly and fade to become scarcely visible in time.
