As we age, gravity pulls down on the soft tissue surrounding our eyes. Once youthful and alert, eyes can become droopy and undefined. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that works to tighten this soft tissue, resulting in bright and open eyes. This procedure can be carried out on the upper or lower eyelids or both.

This procedure is usually carried out under general anaesthetic. Your surgeon will make a cut on the natural crease above your eyelid and then remove any excess skin or fat that is pushing through the muscle. You should be able to go home the day after surgery.

Your surgeon will make a small incision along the border of your eyelid below your lash line to just beyond the outside edge of your eye. Any excess fat that is pushing through the muscle will be removed or redistributed.

This procedure is usually performed under a general anaesthetic. Your surgeon may recommend that you stay overnight but this is something that you will discuss together before-hand.

As with all surgical procedures, there can be some risks. At The McIndoe Centre, we do everything we can to minimise risk of complications. Your surgeon will talk to you about any possible specific complications before you decide to have your operation.
