Home Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a surgery that corrects droopy or sagging eyelids. Excess skin, muscle and fat may be removed from the upper and/or lower eyelids.

At a certain age, your eyelids will start to stretch and the muscles will also weaken. This causes droopy upper eyelids and bags under the eyes. Blepharoplasty or eyelid correction can reduce vision problems and make your eyes appear younger.

First consultation

Before scheduling blepharoplasty surgery, you will meet with a plastic surgeon and following will be discussed :

  • Your medical history. Your surgeon will ask questions about previous surgeries, the use of medications, alcohol and tobacco..
  • Your expectations
  • Possible risks of eyelid surgery

Before the surgery

You will be asked to stop certain medication, such as aspirin, ibuprofen or any other medication with an increased risk of bleeding. Take only medication, supplements or vitamins which have been approved by your surgeon.

Stop smoking several weeks before your surgery. Smoking can reduce the healing process. Blepharoplasty is usually being performed under local anaesthesia. You will get medication to relax during the surgery.

During the surgery

If you have surgery on your upper eyelids, the surgeon cuts along the fold of the eyelid, some excess skin will be removed and possibly fat and closes the incision.

If you have surgery of the lower eyelid, the surgeon makes a cut just below the lashes in the natural crease of the eyes or inside the lower lid. The surgeon removes excess fat, muscle and sagging skin, and closes the incision. The surgery takes 1-2 hours.

After the procedure

You can leave the clinic later that day. Arrange for someone to drive you home or to accompany you.
After surgery you may temporarily experience:

  • Blurred or double vision from the ointment applied to your eyes
  • Watering eyes
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Pain or discomfort

Here are some of the instructions to be followed after the surgery :

  • Use ice packs on your eyes to reduce swelling. There might be bruising and swelling the first 10 to 14 days.
  • Gently clean your eyelids and use prescribed eyedrops or ointments.
  • Avoid straining, strenuous activities, heavy lifting and swimming for a week.
  • Avoid smoking.
  • Avoid rubbing your eyes.
  • If you use contact lenses, do not put them in for about two weeks after surgery.
  • Wear dark sunglasses to protect the skin of your eyelids from sun and wind.
  • Sleep with your head raised higher than your chest for a few days.
  • Stitches should be removed after 5-7 days. Scars may take months to fade. You should protect the scars from too much sun exposure.


For some people, results of surgery may last a lifetime. For others, droopy eyelids may recur.
