A new outlook on life
What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess skin, swelling and fat bags. This will reduce eye fatigue, watery eyes, and sometimes headaches, while giving your face a more youthful appearance. One advantage of this treatment is that it is outpatient only, performed under local anaesthesia, and for upper lid blepharoplasty leaves a hardly noticeable scar in the natural crease of the eyelids. Lower lid blepharoplasty leaves a small scar under the lower eyelashes.
Minor procedure, major change
Blepharoplasty can focus only on the upper or lower lids. Many patients have both upper and lower lid corrections, however. Although blepharoplasty is considered a minor procedure, it can have remarkable effects in making the face appear more youthful. For this reason patients often combine an eyelid treatment with another procedure such as liposuction, breast augmentation or breast reduction. Blepharoplasty is also often performed along with facelift for a combined rejuvenating effect.

What to expect
Before the treatment
For two weeks before the procedure avoid aspirin and other blood thinners. Minimise alcohol consumption and smoking for a few days before the procedure. Ideally you should stop smoking completely. You do not have to stop taking hormonal contraception before the procedure.
During the treatment
Blepharoplasty takes place under local anaesthesia as an outpatient procedure; patients do not need to remain overnight in the clinic. One eyelid usually takes about 20 minutes. The length of the stay at the clinic will depend on the scope. After the procedure you will have the opportunity to rest at the clinic. You can take a sedative before the procedure begins, if you wish.
Minor swelling may appear after the procedure, but it should disappear relatively quickly. We recommend using cold compresses to speed up the healing process. Swelling and haematomas usually subside within seven to 10 days. Patients should avoid physical activity for three to five days. Ordinary activities can resume after one week.
Instalments that won’t stand in your way
Would you like to have blepharoplasty but don’t feel you can afford it now? You don’t have to put it off. We allow payment in instalments, so you can schedule your appointment now and pay later. We also arrange partial financing on request. Get in touch and we’ll be glad to go over all options with you.
The risk of complications arising during or after the procedure is very low. Choosing the right surgeon with our help is the best thing you can do to get excellent results. Still, no surgeon in the world can guarantee no complications will ever occur. Taking out insurance on an operation is a logical step, and more and more patients today are choosing to insure their aesthetic operation. We will be glad to help you with that as well. Just say the word.

Frequently Asked Questions
Contact our team and we’ll share patient stories, reviews and results for blepharoplasty performed by the surgeon you’ve chosen.
We will be happy to tell you the exact price for your blepharoplasty before you make your final decision. Since every procedure differs in scope and difficulty, however, the price can only be set after discussing all your requirements and assessing your indications. The price always includes consultation with a plastic surgeon, pre-op examination, the appropriate anaesthesia, the procedure itself, and post-op hospitalisation.
A standard blepharoplasty can be done as an outpatient procedure and you can go home the same day.
Yes, some patients choose this operation if they are sensitive or have bad experience with procedures performed under local anaesthesia. If that is your case, we are happy to work with you and plan with the surgeon accordingly.
That depends on the nature and scope of procedures performed. Light physical exertion will normally need to wait about one week. Most patients return to work after seven to 10 days.
That depends on the nature and scope of procedures performed. Typically strenuous movement, exercise, strength training and even heavy cleaning will need to wait four to eight weeks.
This procedure has no age limit, so it will mainly depend on the client’s health and physical condition. Under local anaesthesia this procedure is an option for nearly any patient.
Blepharoplasty is one of the more minor cosmetic procedures available, as it does not require general anaesthesia and can be performed in under an hour. The surgeon will go over the incision size with you during the clinical examination, including drawing it on your skin. The incision is made in a way that the scars remain hidden in the natural folds on the skin or under the lower eyelashes. After the procedure, incisions are closed with small stitches.
The results are usually long-term and last several years. It is important to remember, however, that we cannot stop the ageing process entirely and physical changes may appear after some time. Following all the surgeon’s recommendations is the best way to make sure you heal well, get the results you want and have them last as long as possible.
