Blepharoplasty removes some of the excess skin and tissue area around the eye to create a fresher, more youthful look, without affecting the function of the eyelid. The area around our eyes can indicate age more than any other part of the face. We use our eyes to communicate with others and also to show our emotions. Importantly eyelid surgery cannot remove dark circles under the eyes, lift sagging eyebrows or get rid of crow’s feet. During your consultation with Stuart the expected benefits of any surgery will be discussed, but he may also discuss non-surgical treatment options which may compliment any surgery or even negate the need for surgery at this time.
Following eyelid surgery
Blepharoplasty is generally not an uncomfortable procedure and many people require no painkillers at all. There will be varying degrees of bruising and swelling and your eyes may be watery for the first two days but this can differ from person to person.
Things to consider
Scarring is a necessary consequence of eyelid surgery but is normally well disguised within the eyelid creases on the upper lid. Most scars will settle eventually to a thin white line.
