Transform Your Look With A Premier Blepharoplasty

It is amazing the effect the eyes can have on our overall appearance. Many people look tired due to the natural ageing of the eyes. Upper and lower eyelid surgery in Sydney can help restore the youthful beauty of your eyes.

Slight improvements can make significant differences. Simply removing excess skin and/or bulging pockets of fat will make a huge improvement to the eye aesthetic, resulting in a more rejuvenated and well-rested appearance.

Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty

Looking for a better-rested appearance? Upper and lower eyelid surgery in Sydney can help.

What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery, technically known as blepharoplasty, is a type of plastic surgery that corrects imperfections, deformities, and defects of the eyelids. It involves modifying the eyelid skin, including the removal of excess fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelids. This procedure can enhance the appearance of droopy eyelids and may also improve vision.

What can eyelid surgery help with?

This one hour (on average) procedure will correct:

  • Excess skin covering the natural eyelid fold
  • An obstruction of your vision
  • Dark circles, bags, excess skin or puffiness under the eye
  • Fine wrinkles in the lower eyelid
  • A tired appearance even if you are well-rested

What are the benefits of eyelid surgery?

There are numerous benefits of having lower and upper eyelid surgery:

  • Tightening the upper or lower eyelids can reduce wrinkles and eye-bags
  • Minimal and discreet scarring as incisions are hidden in the crease of the eye
  • Rejuvenation of the eyes can have an impact on the whole face
  • Only light sedation via local anaesthetic required
  • Full recovery in only 1 – 2 weeks
  • Medicare rebate may apply if vision is impaired

Am I a good candidate for eyelid surgery?

To determine if an upper and lower blepharoplasty is suitable for you, a consultation with our cosmetic doctor is the first step. At this time, we will assess your overall eyelid contour, excess eyelid skin, and the condition of the muscles. From here, we will be able to determine which path forward will help achieve the look you desire.

Are there any possible risks or side effects?

Blepharoplasty, like all surgeries, carries potential risks and side effects. Selecting a skilled, board-certified surgeon can help minimise these, but it's important to be aware of them. Common risks include:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Dry eyes
  • Eye closure issues
  • Blurred/double vision
  • Vision loss (rare)
  • Swelling
  • Bruising

Please note that any potential side effects will be discussed thoroughly with you prior to your procedure.

How is eyelid surgery in Sydney carried out at ICCM?

If you choose to have your eyelid surgery in Sydney with ICCM, this is what you can expect:

Consultation

To decide if this procedure suits your aesthetic goals, it’s best to begin with a consultation with one of our cosmetic doctors. They will assess your face and provide essential information about the procedure. Before treatment, we advise that you ask questions to ensure that you are completely happy with moving forward. We also advise patients to take time and research in order to make an informed decision.

Procedure

During the eyelid surgery procedure, incisions are made along the natural lines of your upper eyelids and possibly below the lashes in your lower eyelids. Through these incisions, excess skin and fat are removed or repositioned, and the surrounding muscles and tendons may be adjusted. Very fine sutures are used to close the incisions.

Recovery

Some swelling and bruising is expected and no cause for alarm. This will subside within a couple of days after surgery. Light activities are fine to resume the next day, and we strongly recommend dark sunglasses to not only protect the eye area but also conceal stitches, bruising or swelling.

If required, an oral prophylactic antibiotic or oral painkillers may be prescribed to lessen the pain in the days after surgery. From here, any non-absorbent stitches will be removed once the incision has healed, usually one week after the procedure. Scarring will be inconspicuous and fade over time. Not all upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures involve sutures or a visible scar.

Results

These procedures offer very fast results with a refreshed and more alert appearance often clear within the two-week mark. It is important to protect the skin around your eyes from the sun and wind to speed up your recovery. SPF sun protection and tinted sunglasses are strongly recommended.
