What is Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)?
Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is used for removing excess skin and fat from around your eyes, giving you a younger, more alert look.

How is Eyelid Surgery performed?
For upper eyelids surgery, cuts are made into the natural lines and creases in your eyelids, and in the wrinkles at the corners of your eyes. For lower eyelids surgery, cuts are made just below your eyelashes and then out into your 'laughter lines' at the corner of your eyes. This means your scars will run along the natural folds of your eyes, which helps in hiding them.

Excess fat, muscle and loose skin are removed, and the cut is closed using fine stitches. If only fat is removed and there is no excess skin, the cut may be made inside the lower eyelids, leaving no visible scar.

Duration of procedure/surgery : Performing the upper or lower blepharoplasty takes about 1 hour. Surgery for both upper and lower eyelids can take 2-3 hours.

Days admitted : Eyelid surgery is usually done as a day case, so you will not stay overnight at the hospital.

Anesthesia : Blepharoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation. In some cases general anesthesia is used.

Recovery : Most patients experience moderate discoloration that disappears within about 10 days. Swelling peaks on the morning after surgery. While most swelling resolves over the first two weeks, some swelling may remain for several months.

Risks : Severe complications from eyelid surgery are very rare. However, there are risks associated with any minor cosmetic surgery, such as: - hematoma (an accumulation of blood under the skin) - infection - scarring - changes in sensation - damage to underlying structures - allergic reactions - need for revisions due to unsatisfying results
