The exact surgical procedure for a Blepharoplasty will vary from patient to patient. Your Surgeon will customise your procedure depending on your concerns and the condition of your eyelid area.
In general, the following steps may be involved during Eyelid Surgery:
A Local Anesthetic and/or General Anaesthetic will be administered for your comfort during surgery. The specific type of Anaesthesia selected for your eyelid surgery will depend on the type of procedure you have selected, surgical facility and recommendations of your Surgeon.
2. The incision
Incisions for Eyelid Surgery are often strategically placed so that scarring is likely to be concealed within the natural structures of the eyelids. Incision placement often varies from patient to patient and will depend on which procedure you have selected.
3. Incisions are closed
Eyelid incisions are usually closed with sutures (a row of stitches). These sutures are generally removed within 5-8 days following your surgery, will it hurt?
4. Recover and heal
The results of your Eyelid Surgery will appear gradually as swelling and bruising subside to reveal a more defined and rejuvenated eyelid area. It is important that you follow your Surgeon’s advice during your recovery.
