Also known as blepharoplasty, the surgery is for correcting defects or cosmetically modifying areas around the eyelids of both the upper and lower lids. 

Preparing for Eye Bag Removal:

 

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation

  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications

  • Get a baseline mammogram before surgery and another one after surgery to help detect any future changes in your breast tissue

  • Stop smoking

  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding

AM I ELIGIBLE?

UPPER EYELID SURGERY

Step 1 - Upper eyelid surgery only requires the use of a local anaesthetic and a mild sedative.

 

Step 2 - The Incision

Your surgeon will begin by making small incisions along the natural crease of the upper eye lid (approximately 1cm above the lash line).

 

Step 3 - The surgeon will very carefully separate the skin from the underlying tissue before removing or repositioning the fatty tissue and tightening the muscles. 

 

Step 4- Closing the Incision

Before stitching or gluing the incision using surgical glue, the skin will be stretched to ensure that the end result is smooth and free from lines and wrinkles.

 

LOWER EYELID SURGERY

Step 1 - Anesthesia

If you opt for lower eyelid surgery, or a combination of upper and lower eyelid surgery, this will almost always be performed under general anaesthetic. 

 

Step 2 - The Incision

Your surgeon will make an incision along the lower lash line before removing any excess fat (often known as eye bags) and stretching the skin to ensure a smooth finish. 

 

Step 3 -  Closing the Incision

Once the incision has been stitched, any excess skin will be removed and you will be left with smoother, younger looking skin underneath the eyes.

HOW IT IS PERFORMED

Sending an inquiry is FREE and you 
are under no obligation to book

Post procedure care

Your Cosmetic Surgeon will advise (duration) you to stay off work. You will need to rest and avoid bending down. Continue to use your 'ice pack' to relieve bruising and keep the scars dry and clean until stitches are removed.

A pair of dark glasses will help to hide the bruising and swelling during this recovery period.

You will need to rest with your head elevated on pillows or cushions for 4 nights after your surgery. You must avoid rubbing or towelling your eyes.

 

Possible discomfort

You are likely to have some pain after the anesthetic has worn off, and you can expect to be bandaged and may have surgical drains.
