Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
In our Gold Coast Clinics
Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery also known as Blepharoplasty removes the excess fat and wrinkles, dropping skin off the upper eyelids that can causes a hood-like appearance to the “eye area”. It also eliminates bags under your eyes and tightens your lower eyelid skin. The result is a more alert and rested appearance.
Eyelid surgery is often performed along with a facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedures. Some people have inherited traits that cause them to have eyelid surgery as early as in their 20s or 30s. Fat and loose skin are removed from your upper eyelid area through and incision that is hidden within the natural eyelid fold. The incision extends slightly beyond the outside of your eye where it easily blends into existing laugh lines or other creases.

The Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Treatment of the lower eyelids often requires an incision that is hidden just below your lower lashes. Through this incision, excess skin, muscle and fat are removed or adjusted. Sometimes fat may be repositioned to eliminate puffiness or bulges. If your lower eyelid skin is not excessive, Our Surgeons may decide to use a different technique that removes fat through an incision placed inside the lid. A laser is sometimes used, if necessary, to resurface the lower eyelid skin and to achieve a small degree of skin tightening.
After surgery, expect some swelling that may persist for a week or longer. Your vision may be somewhat blurry for a few days, and you will want to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes from the wind and sun. Within a week, you can wear makeup to conceal any remaining discolouration. You should be back to work within ten days, but bruising can last longer.
Choosing A Qualified Surgeon
One of the most important factors in the success of your plastic surgery is the surgeon you select. Many people are surprised to learn that some doctors performing plastic/cosmetic surgery today have had no formal surgical training. That is why you need to ask the right questions before you schedule a consultation.
