“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.

Questions & Answers

Eyelid surgery also known as (blepharoplasty) is cosmetic surgery to remove excess skin or fat from the eyelids. The aim is to improve hooded or droopy eyelids or eye bags.

A blepharoplasty can be done under local anaesthetic with sedation or under general anaesthetic.

Surgery on the upper eyelids generally involves making a cut (incision) along the eyelid crease in the natural skin fold of the eyelid; removing excess skin, fat or muscle; closing up the incision.

Surgery on the lower eyelids generally involves making an incision either just below the lower lashes or on the inside of the eyelid; moving or removing fat from the bags under the eyes, and sometimes also a small amount of skin; supporting the muscles and tendon of the eyelid if necessary.

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.

An upper blepharoplasty may take about one hour. Surgery on the lower lid may take up to two hours. It is a day surgery. 

You will need about a week to recover from eyelid surgery. Bruises, scars and redness may take several weeks to fade. 

You need to 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, smoking, contact lenses and rubbing the eyes.

It’s common after eyelid surgery to temporarily have numb eyelids that are difficult to close at night, irritated, sensitive or watery eyes – this may last a few weeks. Bruising that looks like a black eye may be another side effect.
