Eyelid Reduction

As you age, time can takes its toll on your natural appearance. This is often more pronounced on the skin around your eyes as it loosens, wrinkles, and sags. With your eyes looking worn and tired, you can look years older.

Eyelid reduction surgery, or eye bag removal, is an effective way to help bring a younger and fresher look back to your eyes and face.

About Eyelid Reduction Treatments

Eyelid surgery can be used to achieve both medical and cosmetic benefits. In addition to restoring function and appearance after trauma and correcting vision problems caused by anatomical changes, eyelid surgery is also undertaken from a cosmetic point of view to improve an aged appearance, or hooded heaviness.

By addressing fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, and under-eye bags that can make you look tired and older, blepharoplasty is a popular cosmetic procedure to repair and enhance the eyelid region. Targeted areas include the upper and lower eyelids, as well as the hollows beneath the eyes and the tear troughs. These cosmetic concerns can be corrected separately or in tandem depending on the patient’s desired goal.

How long do the results of Blepharoplasty last?2020-11-25T17:15:53+00:00

You can expect the results of your Blepharoplasty surgery to last a long time – around 10 years in most cases. The longevity of your results does depend on various factors, including the ageing process, some medical conditions, and your individual genetics.

What are some of the reasons an individual would choose eyelid surgery?2021-01-12T09:11:29+00:00

Many individuals choose blepharoplasty to reduce the appearance of bags under their eyes, to eliminate droopy and tired looking eyelids, and to restore peripheral vision that has been impaired by severely sagging eyelid skin.

Will eyelid surgery fix my peripheral vision?2021-01-12T09:11:55+00:00

Eyelid surgery only fixes peripheral vision that is blocked by droopy eyelids. There are many other causes of peripheral vision loss, including glaucoma, occlusions, a detached retina or a compression of the optic nerve. If you are experiencing peripheral vision loss, it is important to schedule an appointment with our eye doctor for a thorough examination and diagnosis.

How long will I need to recover?2021-01-12T09:12:45+00:00

Since the surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, you will be allowed to go home and recover as soon as the local anaesthetic has worn off, and it has been determined that it is safe for you to return home. Recovery times vary. In general, your stitches, if not self-dissolving, will be removed after 10 days, and most patients are fully recovered after one month. However, recovery can take longer.

Although fat bulging of the upper and lower eyelids is usually seen as one of the characteristics of an ageing face. There are a smaller proportion of patients who have a genetic predisposition to eyelid aging where fat bulges may be present in late teenage and early twenties. The treatment of lower eyelid bags in young adults with negative vector requires specific techniques to support the lower eyelid after blepharoplasty, this is essential to avoid lower eyelid retraction. Support of the lower eyelid ensures a good shaped to the lower eyelid after surgery, some patients may require additional techniques for the best result including lower eyelid volume augmentation including fillers and cheek implants.

How long do the effects last?2021-01-12T09:14:02+00:00

It is expected that the effects would last for at least 5-10 years, if not more.
