Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

The aim of Eyelid Surgery is to remove any excess skin and fat, tighten muscles and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, helping to give you a more youthful and rested appearance.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Sagging skin and puffy fat deposits on your upper or lower eyelids may give you a tired, old or sad appearance. Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) can be performed on the upper eyelid (Upper Blepharoplasty) and/or the lower eyelid (Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty).

If your brow has fallen, Dr Kumar may also recommend Brow Lift Surgery, which will further help rejuvenate your face.

The procedure for Upper Eyelid Surgery (Upper Blepharoplasty) involves making an incision along the natural eyelid creases in order to disguise scars. Excess skin is removed and, if needed, the muscle is tightened slightly to lift the eye area. Other modifications may be carried out, as appropriate, by Dr Kumar, who is a fully trained Specialist.

For Lower Eyelid Surgery (Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty), an incision is made just below the lower lash line, and excess skin and fat is removed. Stitches are used to close the wound, which are removed after approximately 5-7 days.

After Eyelid Surgery, you may experience temporary swelling, bruising and dry eyes, which should subside after a week or so. The final results of your Eyelid Surgery will become apparent after several weeks, leaving you with a more alert and refreshed appearance.

Dr Kumar will tailor your Eyelift Surgery according to your specific needs. For example, some patients need the under-eye fat pockets removed, while for others, removing them would result in a hollowed-out look, so a different approach is needed.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) can also be combined with a facelift or Brow Lift Surgery, as well as Laser Resurfacing, Medical-grade Peels, Wrinkle Relaxer Injections, Wrinkle Filler Injections (Dermal Fillers), to improve lines in the lid area.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) can do wonders for men and is frequently requested. Eyelid Surgery can provide a well-rested and refreshed appearance. Eyelid surgery may be performed along with a Facelift for a more dramatic change, when appropriate.
