Eyelid correction or Blepharoplasty is the medical term for lifting the upper or lower eyelid or removing the lachrymal sacs (hoods) over the eye. It is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures with both men and women and can be combined easily with other surgery in our Sydney clinic. Requiring comparatively little surgical impact, tired or sad looking eyes can be given a radiant, youthful appearance without obvious scars and minimal downtime.
After a local anaesthesic has been administered, a scalpel or laser is used to cut along the fold of the eyelid. This removes the excess skin as well as the muscle and fatty tissue underneath it. The wound is closed with a tiny suture inside the skin. Swelling is soothed with cooling pads.
