Upper Lid

Upper Lid – Upper Blepharoplasty

Cosmetic surgery of the upper eyelid, or upper blepharoplasty, restores a natural, more youthful contour to the upper eyelid by removing excess skin that causes hooding or upper lid bags, causing a tired appearance.

We use specialised techniques to refine the upper eyelid, including the removal or repositioning of fat pads and correction of the upper eyelid fold.

Generally outpatient, upper eyelid blepharoplasty is most commonly performed under local anaesthesia with sedation.

You may engage in light activity the day after your surgery. Depending on any accompanying procedures, a return to more normal activity may take 1-2 weeks. Your appearance will gradually improve over the following 4-6 weeks.

Proper skincare and sun protection including sunglasses, are essential during healing.

Results can be long-term, turning back the clock on your appearance from 8 to 10 years. Natural aging will continue after your eyelid surgery.
