With eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, we remove the excess skin and/or fat from the upper or lower eyelids. The operation is usually performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation and the patient returns home the same day.

Can we combine upper and lower eyelid surgery?

It is very common that skin laxity is present both at the upper and lower eyelids resulting in a very unattractive appearance. In these cases, the plastic surgeon performes upper and lower blepharoplasty in one session. Sedation is almost mandatory as the duration of surgery is longer. 

What can I expect after surgery?

Bruising and swelling are present during the first 3-5 days after surgey but tend to subside relatively quickly. The stitches are removed iafter 5-7 days and return to everyday activities and work is possible after 7-10 days. Exposure to sunlight without sunblock should be avoided for some months after surgery in order to avoid scar discoloration.
