A guide to blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) | Cityskin Melbourne

What is a blepharoplasty?

A blepharoplasty is surgical procedure which removed loose eyelid skin. The surgery can remove upper eyelid, lower eyelid skin or both.

How is the procedure performed?

A blepharoplasty can be performed either under general anaesthetic (being put to sleep) or awake using local anaesthetic. Under local anaesthetic the area is completely numb so you don’t feel anything.

The surgeon delicately removes the loose eyelid skin and closes with tiny sutures (stitches).

How long will I need to take off work after eyelid surgery?

Patients generally take about 1 week off work to allow swelling and bruising to settle. After 2 weeks, people will not be able to tell that you have had surgery as the small stitches will have been removed.
