Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Bright eyed and beautiful, turn back time by lifting the lids.
Your eyes are the window to your soul and the focal point of your face. Open hearts and minds with brilliantly bright eyes that communicate beauty, vigour, and your big ideas. In contrast, saggy eyes and puffy skin convey a tired aged appearance regardless of how energetic and well-rested you are.
Blepharoplasty, otherwise known as eyelid surgery or eye-lift, can correct these problems.
Two problems seen in aging eyelids cannot be corrected by Blepharoplasty alone, which are dark circles and wrinkles, and may require extra treatment to get the clear-eyed results you desire.
For the upper eyelids the incision line is placed at the natural eyelid crease. Excess skin, muscle and fat are then removed. Because the incision is placed in a natural crease, it is frequently almost invisible after surgery.
There’s a couple of options with lower eyelid surgery.
The most common approach used by Dr. Pincock sees the incision placed inside the eyelid, invisible from the outside. While excess fat can be removed through this incision, excess skin cannot. Excess skin can be removed just below the eyelashes in a “pinch technique” or in some cases laser resurfacing or a chemical peel can both tighten excess skin and remove wrinkles at the same time.
Most Blepharoplasty surgery is performed with either light sedation and local anaesthesia given by our specially selected anaesthetists. Sutures in an upper eyelid procedure are removed in five days, the sutures used in a lower eyelid procedure usually dissolve within a week.
You should only need a week off work. Look as energised and you feel and express yourself fully with an eyelid lift.
