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, heaviness and upper lid blepharoplasty can improve the appearance. In some cases, a better result can be obtained in conjunction with other procedures such as brow lift, Botox and fillers. Blepharoplasty of the lower lid will eliminate baggy folds of skin below the eyes.
Mr ho-Asjoe will make an incision along the natural lines and folds of the skin around your eyes while under local or general anaesthetic. The incision is done with precision to ensure minimal scarring. Excess fat, skin and muscle are removed before the wound is carefully sutured to ensure a natural aesthetic outcome.
Blepharoplasty surgery typically takes between 1-2 hours to complete. 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.
Blepharoplasty surgery is considered a permanent solution for the correction for drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes. Even though the peri-orbital wrinkling will improve, it will not completely eliminate these lines. Botox is a better option for wrinkling around the eyes.
Typically, it takes approximately 7-10 days to fully recovery from Blepharoplasty surgery, however many patients have had the surgery and return to work within 4-5 days.
