Blepharoplasty - Eyelid surgery
Rejuvenate your facial appearance
Thanks to blepharoplasty you can revitalise your look and boost your self-esteem. Without drooping eyelids and bags under your eyes, you'll feel like a younger, more vital man.
Eyelid surgery is a procedure to remove the fat and excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. In this way you will feel younger, as your eyes will no longer look tired, wrinkled or swollen.
Type of procedure
Major outpatient surgery. General, or local if only on the upper eyelids.
1week. Eye cleaning and eye drops.
1h-hour procedure. On an outpatient basis.
The removal of excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids will give you a new look. Over time skin loses elasticity, an effect that eyelid surgery can correct, giving you vibrant and more open eyes.
Are you the ideal candidate?
Men who undergo this procedure are typically between the ages of 40 and 70, but in some cases, where bags under the eyes run in the family, patients may be younger.
It is a simple and rapid procedure. The surgeon typically makes incisions in the natural lines of the upper eyelids, and just below the lashes on the lower ones, to remove excess fat and, sometimes, excess skin and muscle. The incisions are closed with very fine, imperceptible sutures. Blepharoplasty is performed in our operating rooms, under local anaesthesia and sedation. The procedure usually takes 1 hour.
After the surgery an ointment is applied to the eyes to lubricate them. You should keep your head elevated for a few days after the surgery, and apply cold compresses. We will teach you how to wash your eyes, and you may be advised to use ophthalmic eye drops to keep your eyes hydrated. The stitches on the upper eyelid are removed about a week after surgery. There are usually no external stitches on the lower eyelid.
Back to normal
After the stitches are removed you can begin to resume your normal routine. However, you should avoid strenuous activity for three weeks, such as heavy lifting or exercising. In a week you'll be able to go back to work.
You will enjoy a younger and more awake appearance in the eye area for years. In many cases the results are permanent.
Complications are infrequent and minor, although there is always the possibility of infection or anaesthetic reactions. To minimise any risk, you should carefully follow our surgeons’ instructions both before and after surgery.
