What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is the surgical procedure used to correct problems associated with the upper and/or lower eyelids. The surgery is performed to move excess skin and fat to give a more positive facial expression, smoother and firmer skin, and often an improved field of vision.

You might consider blepharoplasty to sometimes be called an "eye lift”  if you have excessive drooping eyelids or sagging skin around your eyes.

Another eyelid surgical procedure that has become popular in Thailand and Asia is  double eyelid surgery.  The procedure includes adding a fold to the upper eyelid (double eyelid) to give the eyes a larger appearance.

How long does eyelid surgery take?

Eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anaesthetic and typically takes between 30 minutes to 1 hour. 

How long does eyelid surgery recovery take?

The eyelids will feel tight and sore for the first few days and the stitches will be removed 5-7 days after the surgery. Patients should be able to return to work and daily activities after 7 - 10 days.

What are the results of eyelid surgery treatment?

With eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, as it’s most commonly referred to, you can expect wider and more attractive eyes, smoother skin around the eyes, and often an improved field of vision.
