Overview of Eyelid Surgery- Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) is as much an art as it is science. The aesthetic sense of the surgeon performing the procedure is critical to acheive a natural looking result. 

Excess eyelid skin with or without bulging fat pads is the reason why people consider eyelid surgery. It is one of the most popular and frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedure in the world.

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, alcoholism and cigarette smoking often accelerate the ageing process.

Younger people with genetically inherited excess fatty tissue around the eyes ( such as people of Asian origin) 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, upper eyelid blepharoplasty can also improve the eyesight by providing a less obstructed field of vision caused by excess upper eyelid skin.

The decision to undergo any cosmetic surgery is quite daunting for most people. It can be extremely difficult to find the right doctor who you can trust. Most patients want to acheive natural looking results when it comes to any cosmetic procedure. They don't want anyone else to know that they have had a surgery done. They want to choose a doctor who is able to listen to them carefully and understand their concerns. A doctor who's surgical skills deliver safe and hassle-free results with minimal discomfort and down-time. 

Dr Ehsan Jadoon has successfully performed countless eyelid surgery procedures (Blepharoplasty) in Sydney and Perth since 2012.

He is known to achieve natural-looking results with highest patient satisfaction rate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ablative lasers such as Erbium Yag and CO2 have excellent tissue shrinking properties  In recent years, these lasers have become extremely popular in reducing loose and crepey skin in the lower eyelids. 

At Medaesthetics, lower eyelid laser skin tightening is one of our signature cosmetic procedures. We perform hundreds of these treatments each year with excellent clinical results and very high patient satisfaction rate. 

At Medaesthetics, Blepharoplasty is routinely performed using CO2 laser and radio-wave device as a day procedure under local anaesthesia. The procedure can also be performed under twilight anaesthesia in an accredited day hospital if the patient prefers to be asleep durinng the surgery. 

 

Blepharoplasty is a relatively quick procedure to perform. On average, the procedure takes less than sixty minutes. 

We routinely perform this procedure under safe doses of local anaesthesia while the patient is fully awake. Our patients tolerate the whole experience exceptionally well as there is little to no discomfort associated with this technique.

This procedure can alternatively be performed under twilight sedation at an accredited day hospital in Subiaco if  the patient prefers to be asleep during the surgery (additional fees apply). 

Once the treatment area has been numbed, you will be unable to feel any pain. At Medaesthetics, we make every effort to ensure that every procedure we perform entails minimal pain or discomfort.

All surgeries carry some potential risks. These include:

  • Post-surgical bleeding
  • Swelling and bruising (Temporary)
  • Infection
  • Delayed healing
  • Under or over correction

At Medaesthetics, we offer complementary follow-up to all our patients until they are fully healed. 

Eyelid skin heals quickly and exceptionally well, leaving minimal or no scarring. The area of excess skin excision is in the natural eyelid crease, and in most cases is virtually invisible when the patient's eyes are open.

At Medaesthetics, we offer an extensive range of fractional CO2 lasers to help reduce any type of scarring, whether related to surgery or trauma.

Most patients can return to office-based work within 5 to 7 days. We recommend at least 2 weeks off work if your work involves heavy physical activity or travelling. A Medical Certificate can be organised which will not mention the name of your procedure.

Initial recovery from upper eyelid blepharoplasty is usally between seven to ten days for most patients. Sutures are taken out on day ten. Residual swelling can take a few more weeks to fully subside in patients who are slow healers. 

At medaesthetics, we offer the following procedures:

  • Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
  • Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
  • Trans-Conjunctival Blepharoplasty (Lower eyelids)
  • Lower Eyelid Laser Skin Tightening (Resurfacing)

For removing lower eyelid fat pads alone, a “trans-conjunctival” blepharoplasty is performed where the incision is made inside the lower eyelids, leaving no visible scar on the outside.

As the name suggests, Tissue-sparing Blepharoplasty means a minimally invasive surgery where just the excess Eyelid skin is removed. Deeper structures such as Eyelid muscles and fat pads are left intact. This procedure is suitable for patients who just have excess skin and no bulging fat pads. At Medaesthetics, we prefer this procedures for majority of our patients.
