Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure in which excess skin is removed from around the eye, and fat is either added, removed or repositioned alongside this. It is designed to improve the appearance of baggy eyelids and puffiness around the eyes by undergoing these changes, leading to a smoother and more rested appearance for the patient’s face. Blepharoplasty is a very common procedure due to the commonality of the underlying issues which cause people to undergo this procedure, the ease and safety of undergoing this procedure and the great benefits this procedure has for you and your body.

How Is Double Eyelid Surgery Performed?

After a complete medical and eye examination, discussion on the level of the crease height, whether a nasally tapered, or parallel crease is wanted, Dr Young will define exactly what’s required for an optimum outcome. Complications or unwanted results will be clarified and then a booking and follow up details will be given. A post care information pack and post care eye drops will be prescribed.
Most of our patients have double eyelid surgery performed on an outpatient basis (same day surgery) where you return home after the procedure. This allows us to provide the best medical care in terms of electronic monitoring, equipment and anaesthetics. It is done under local anaesthetic and will take approximately 2 hours.

What Happens During the Procedure?

The procedure is very delicate like other plastic surgery. It involves removing a small amount of excessive skin (depending on the age of the patient, more may be removed), some tissue under the skin, and possibly a small amount of fat pads. The technical demands and details are in the design of the double eyelid crease, and the technical skills required to heal the incision wound together in a permanent fashion. The incision line is hidden in the newly created eyelid crease. Associated procedures such as epicanthoplasty, fat pad/bags removal, or brow lifting, may be also performed conveniently at the same procedure.

Expected Results

Initially, the crease will look slightly higher than expected but then, over a few months period, it will achieve an ideal level and shape. Any detailed questions you may have regarding the immediate post-surgical period and the normal steps of healing will be explained to you at the time of your private consultation.

Costs of this procedure vary, depending on each individual requirement. Upon an assessment, it will be determined what’s required, along with associated costs. However, as a general guide, cost for this type of procedure typically range from $2500 to approximately $5,500. There is extra fees for Epicanthoplasty, eyebag removal, and brow lifting, or if there has been previous surgery or stitch crease present. When fat grafting is also performed there will also be an additional fee.
