Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery helps to refresh and present a more youthful appearance around the region of the eyes. It achieves this through removing any excess skin and fat or redistributing the fat to smooth and rejuvenate the appearance.
- Usually a day case procedure
- For an upper eyelid procedure a local anaesthetic can be used
- For a lower eyelid procedure a general anaesthetic is used
- For both a lower and upper eyelid procedure a general anaesthetic is used
- Sutures will be removed in 5-7 days
