The upper and lower eyelids are particularly prone to the effects of ageing. The skin around the upper and lower lid can develop wrinkles, sagging and drooping with age. In the upper lid, excessive loose skin may produce obscuring of forward vision. In addition, fat can produce puffiness and bags which may leave you looking perpetually tired.
Professor Deva performs upper and lower lid blepharoplasty (eye lift) to improve the appearance of the eyelids by removing skin and fat and tightening loose skin in and around the eyes. The procedure may also widen your visual fields if there is documented visual obstruction. The procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthetic either in the office or at a day surgery facility.
You will need between 1-2 weeks to recover from the surgery and like all cosmetic procedures, will be instructed on commencing massage at the 2 week mark to improve swelling and scarring.
