Face Procedures


Eyelid Correction / Eye Bag removal

As patients grow older the muscles around the eye area become relaxed; the eyelids and brows can begin to droop and permanent bags can begin to appear around the eyes. A Blepharoplasty procedure is carried out to correct the appearance of the eyes either due to fatty deposits or excessive skin which can cause sagging and in some cases impair vision.

The aim of the procedure is to rejuvenate the area making the eyes appear more open and patients should regain a more youthful appearance. It is not uncommon to combine the Blepharoplasty procedure with a Facelift for an overall aesthetically pleasing result.

The Procedure

Surgery can be carried out under General Anaesthetic or Local Anaesthetic/Sedation depending on the extent of the procedure and patients can usually return home the same day.

Depending on the area(s) of concern the procedure will be customised to fulfil the patient’s requirements. For Upper Blepharoplasty an incision is made above the eyelid within the natural crease, and for Lower Blepharoplasty an incision is made below the lashes or sometimes within the eye itself. Excess skin will then be excised and any fatty deposits are then removed or repositioned. The incisions are then sutured and either a package or stent, (sometimes both) is applied to immobilise the corrected nose and ensure proper healing of the surgical incision.


Risks & Complications

Blepharoplasty surgery is a low risk procedure and complications are rare, however it is important to be aware of the side effects associated which will be explained in full during consultation.
