Why consider Blepharoplasty?

With time, the eyelid skin becomes lax and the underlying tissue (fat pads) may start to bulge out. Years of sun damage, genetic predisposition, chronic health issues and cigarette smoking often accelerate this phenomenon.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure where excess eyelid skin (and if required, excess fat pads) are excised to restore a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Younger people with genetically inherited excess fatty tissue around the eyes may also elect to have this procedure to achieve a more defined upper eyelid crease or to get rid of bulging lower lid fat pads.

In older patients, blepharoplasty may also improve eyesight by providing a less obstructed field of vision.

What is involved in blepharoplasty surgery?

  • At Medaesthetics®, blepharoplasty is performed using CO2 Laser and Radio-wave surgery as a day procedure under local anaesthesia.
  • During the preliminary consultation, the doctor will take a thorough medical history, as well as assess the patient’s psychological attitudes toward the surgery.
Patients will also be asked questions concerning vision, tear production, use of lenses, and their general eye and vision health.
  • Photographs will be taken for clinical purpose so the surgeon can study your face and eyes.
  • Individual risks will also be examined, especially those related to medical conditions such as high blood pressure, a tendency to scar, smoking, and any deficiency in blood clotting.
  • Eyelid skin to be excised is first carefully marked. The area is anaesthetised using a single tiny injection and then surgically removed. Various methods for excising the skin are currently in use, including CO2 lasers, radio-wave surgery and scalpel techniques.
  • The procedure is tolerated extremely well by most patients. There is minimal bleeding and discomfort associated.
  • After the skin excision, any excess soft tissue (fat pads) underneath the skin is excised as well. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures.
  • The entire procedure generally takes around 90 to 120 minutes.
  • You will be able to go home after the surgery on the same day.
We recommend that you organise a friend or family member to give you a lift back home as driving is not recommended for first few days after the eyelid surgery.

What is the downtime like for eyelid surgery?

Like any surgical procedure, some swelling and bruising is common with this procedure. This generally starts to subside within days after surgery. Most patients are able to undertake light activities from the next day onwards. Patients may choose to wear dark sunglasses to conceal stitches, bruising and swelling.

You may be commenced on oral prophylactic antibiotics along with oral painkillers for first few days after surgery.

The non-absorbent stitches are taken out on day five once the wound is healed. We also use absorbable sutures for skin closure and in that case the stitches will simply absorb on their own within few days. Surgical scars will be situated in the upper eyelid crease or just under the lower lashes, and therefore will be inconspicuous.

For removing lower eyelid fat pads alone, a “trans-conjunctival” blepharoplasty is performed where the incision is made inside your lower eyelid, leaving no visible scar. Sutures are not usually required here as no skin excision is performed. This approach is more suitable for younger patients with thicker, more elastic skin and has a more rapid recovery period.
Is there going to be a visible scar?

Eyelid skin heals extremely quickly and extremely well, leaving minimal or no scarring. The area of excess skin excision is in the natural eyelid crease and is virtually invisible when our eyes are open.
