Eyelid surgery known as well as blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance ofof the eyelids.
Surgery can be performed on either the upper and lower lids, or both.Eye bag removal surgery helps to restore youthfulness to the face. It is performed by your plastic surgeon that will remove excess skin and fatty tissue from above the eye,
removing the hood of skin which can develop as we get older.
The upper eyelid surgery only requires the use of a local anaesthetic and a mild sedative, meaning the recovery time should be quicker than if a general anaesthetic is used.
Your surgeon will begin by making small incisions along the natural crease of the upper eye lid.For lower eyelid surgery, or a combination of upper and lower eyelid surgery, this will almost always be performed under general anaesthetic as your surgeon will make an incision along the lower lash line before removing any excess fat and stretching the skin to ensure a smooth finish.
