Blepharoplasty, often referred to as eyelid surgery or an eye lift, is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyelids. Over the years, various factors such as ageing, genetics, and environmental stressors like sun exposure and lifestyle habits have contributed to changes in the eyelid’s appearance. These changes manifest as sagging or drooping eyelids, puffiness, and the accumulation of excess skin. Beyond the aesthetic concerns, these changes can also lead to functional issues such as impaired vision, especially when the sagging skin obstructs the eye. The procedure addresses both these functional and aesthetic challenges, restoring a youthful, alert, and refreshed appearance to the eyes.


The journey to a Blepharoplasty begins with an initial consultation. During this session, the surgeon assesses the patient’s eyelids, discusses their concerns, and determines the extent of the procedure required. This consultation is crucial for setting expectations and ensuring the patient’s goals align with the potential outcomes.

The decision-making process for anaesthesia is collaborative, taking into account the patient’s comfort, health status, and the extent of the surgery. Typically, local anaesthesia with sedation is preferred, but general anaesthesia might be recommended in some cases.


The surgical techniques employed in Blepharoplasty involve making incisions within the eyelids’ natural creases, ensuring minimal visible scarring. The surgeon can remove or reposition excess skin, fat, or muscle through these incisions, achieving the desired eyelid contour.

Post-surgery, the incisions are carefully sutured and, in some cases, bandaged. The surgeon might also apply ointments to reduce the risk of infection and aid the healing process. The meticulous nature of the procedure ensures that post-surgical marks are minimal and blend naturally with the eyelid’s creases.


PLEASE NOTE: While some results may be visible sooner, final results often take a few months for swelling to fully subside.

Blepharoplasty offers a range of benefits including the aesthetic, functional, and psychological.
The procedure bestows a more youthful appearance by addressing common concerns like sagging eyelids and under-eye bags. The elimination of excess skin and puffiness can dramatically transform the eye region, making it appear more alert and refreshed.
Beyond aesthetics, Blepharoplasty can significantly improve vision by correcting drooping eyelids that obstruct sight. This functional enhancement can make daily activities, like reading or driving, more comfortable.
The combined aesthetic and functional improvements often lead to a surge in self-confidence. Patients frequently report feeling more positive about their appearance and experiencing renewed self-assuredness in social and professional settings.

Certain medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders, high blood pressure, and diabetes, may increase the risks associated with blepharoplasty. Discussing your medical history with your surgeon during the consultation is crucial.
Typically, the first follow-up is scheduled a week after the surgery, followed by appointments at one month, three months, and six months post-surgery. However, this can vary based on individual needs.
While complications are rare, it’s essential to be aware of symptoms like severe pain, sudden vision changes, excessive swelling or redness, and discharge from the incisions. If you experience any of these, contact KP Surgical immediately.
Post-surgery, avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, swimming, and direct sun exposure. It’s also advisable to refrain from smoking, as it can hinder the healing process.
Blepharoplasty specifically targets the eyelids, addressing issues like sagging skin, puffiness, and bags. In contrast, other facial procedures may focus on areas like the forehead, cheeks, or neck.
