“Dr. Lucy and the Elite Clinic team physically and emotionally prepared me by walking me through each detail of the procedure and home care as they progressed. My feelings and knowledge were always a priority in this journey. Within the first week my results were amazingly positive and continue to improve. I’m incredibly happy to be a part of the Elite Clinic patient family. I can see so much better with my new field of vision. I don’t need glasses for distance at this time. I also look years younger resulting in feeling much better about myself.”
I had an eyelid surgical job by the amazing Mr Joffily, this could not have gone any better it was my first time experiencing a procedure like this and he made me feel comfortable from the very start. He made sure he incorporated what I had wanted for my eyes to look like into the end result and she helped me acquire my dream eyelid! Overall an excellent experience and exceptional service was given I will definitely be coming back.
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is cosmetic surgery to remove excess skin or fat from the eyelids. It is also known as eyelid reduction, eye lift or eye bag removal as it targets the sagging and droopy effect in the eyes. The aim of the surgery is to reverse the ageing signs under the eyes and result in a youthful appearance by improving the hooded or droopy eyelids or eye bags and tightening the muscles in the area.
Eyelid surgery can relate to both the upper and the lower eyelids, depending on the patient’s needs and expected results. In Harley Elite Group, we value your health and safety and offer you personalized treatments based on your needs and desires.
An upper blepharoplasty lasts about one hour. The surgery on the lower lid may take up a little more time, precisely two hours. That is why the eye lid surgery is rightly considered a “day surgery”.
A blepharoplasty can be done under local anesthetic with sedation or under general anesthetic.
Surgery on the upper eyelids generally involves making a cut (incision) along the eyelid crease in the natural skin fold of the eyelid, either just below the lower lashes or on the inside of the eyelid. After carefully separating the skin from the underlying structures and removing excess fat tissue or muscle, the incision is carefully closed up.
The fat is mainly removed from the bags under the eyes. Sometimes and if necessary, a small amount of skin and supporting muscles and tendon are also pulled out.
The surgeon will normally apply thin, sticky strips called suture strips to support the eyelids after surgery. These are usually removed up to a week later.
The recovery period depends on every individual case. The average time needed to recover from the eyelid surgery is about a week. However, bruises, scars and redness may take up to two weeks to fade.
Some general advice by our experts is:
- Prop your head up with pillows for a couple of days when resting to reduce the swelling.
- Gently clean your eyelids using prescribed ointment or eyedrops.
- Hold a cold pack to your eye for a few days.
- Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun and wind.
- Avoid any strenuous activity and swimming for a few days.
- Quit smoking, contact lenses and rubbing the eyes for a few days.
It is common after eyelid surgery to temporarily have numb eyelids that are difficult to close at night, irritated, sensitive or watery eyes. The discomfort may last for a few weeks. Bruising and swelling that looks like having a black eye may be another side effect. Please remember that all side effects are temporary and will gradually disappear after the procedure.
This procedure is suitable for both men and women who are looking to achieve a more rejuvenated and fresher appearance. If the droopy or sagging eyelids keep your eyes from opening completely and bother you in your everyday activities, chose to remove the excess fat through blepharoplasty. With the surgery, your vision will be improved, and your eyes will overall appear younger and more alert.
