Upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)


Upper eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids.

Anaesthetic - Local, sedation or general

Length of stay - 5 days

Length of operation - 1 hour

Return to normal life - 1 week

Excess skin can result in a tired appearance and can also cause experiencing functional problems with your eyelids. An upper eyelid surgery can often be performed in the clinic with local anesthesia. Via the incision, Dr Mak will remove a small amount of fat and/or excess skin can be excised. One the eyelid surgery has been completed, the skin is closed with very fine sutures which are removed/dissolved several days later, and in time the scars will fade to be barely visible. 

Before your treatments you might also need to:

Stop smoking. Smoking decreases blood flow in the skin and can slow the healing process. If you smoke , Dr Mak will recommend that you stop smoking before surgery and during recovery.

Avoid certain medications. You will likely need to avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, blood tinners and herbal supplements, which can increase bleeding.

As you begin your journey toward considering plastic surgery and other cosmetic enhancements , my goal as your plastic surgeon is to provide you the highest quality of care throughout the entire process.
