What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure we perform at Dr. Ducu Clinics to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle, and fat.

Droopy eyelids (ptosis)can result from a variety of factors including aging, genetics, muscle weakness, eyelid trauma, neurological conditions, eyelid tumors, or systemic diseases. This condition can not only affect the appearance of the eyes but also impair vision if severe.

The upper eyelid is situated above the eye. The lower eyelid is located below the eye. It is less mobile than the upper eyelid and primarily moves upward during blinking to meet the upper eyelid, forming a protective barrier over the eye.

Blepharoplasty can help reduce puffiness, bags, and wrinkles around both te upper and lower eyelids, giving a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

Why have eyelids surgery?

Eyelids surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure chosen by people for various reasons.

Here are some of the most common ones:

Cosmetic enhancement - Eyelid surgery is sought after by many people to reduce the tired appearance caused by droopy or sagging eyelids, puffiness, or under-eye bags.

Improved vision - In cases where excess skin or tissue on the upper eyelids obstructs vision, eyelid surgery can be performed to remove the excess tissue and improve visual field.

Reduction of under-eye bags - Eyelid surgery can effectively address under-eye bags by removing or repositioning excess fat deposits and tightening the surrounding skin, resulting in a smoother and more rejuvenated under-eye area.

Boost in self-confidence - For most of our patients, undergoing eyelid surgery is a means of enhancing self-esteem and confidence.

The moment I had stepped in to the clinic I was greeted by the lovely Dr Bisma who had performed my PRP. Dr Bisma was amazing from the start to finish,and with her wealth of knowledge and expertise, I knew I was in good hands. Whilst trying to provide comfort during this process and reassurance I was admired Dr Bisma’s sensitivity and compassion throughout. Thank you to Dr Bisma and the team for this experience. Would definitely recommend!

Blepharoplasty procedure at Dr. Ducu Clinics London

1. Consultation

During the initial consultation, you will meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon at Dr. Ducu Clinics to discuss your situation. The surgeon evaluates your eyelid anatomy, skin elasticity, and overall facial structure to determine the most suitable approach for eyelid surgery. He may recommend the upper eyelind blepharoplasy, the lower eyelid surgery or both, depanding on your individual state.

The surgeon will also evaluate some of your older photos, to make sure your new appearance will suit your facial features. Afterwards, he will develop a comprehensive treatment plan for you.

2. Procedure

• Upper lid blepharoplasty

Upper lid blepharoplasty is performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation. During this procedure, the surgeon makes precise incisions along the natural creases of the upper eyelids. Through these incisions, excess tissue is carefully excised or repositioned to address concerns such as drooping or sagging eyelids, puffiness, and hooded appearance. The surgeon will then use fine sutures to close the incisions, resulting in minimal scarring.

• Lower eyelid blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. This is a more complex procedure, during which the surgeon makes precise incisions either along the lower lash line (transcutaneous approach) or inside the lower eyelid (transconjunctival approach). Through these incisions, excess fat deposits are either removed or repositioned, and any sagging or lax skin is tightened. The incisions are then closed with fine sutures.

3. Aftercare & recovery

After the surgery, you may experience some mild discomfort, swelling, bruising, and temporary blurred vision, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications and cold compresses. IYou will be adviced to keep your head elevated, avoid strenuous activities, and use prescribed eye drops or ointments as directed. Most patients can expect to return to work and normal activities within 7 to 10 days, although full recovery may take several weeks.

4. Results

Over the following weeks and months you will notice a significant improvement in the appearance of their eyelids, with a smoother, more youthful contour and a reduction in under-eye bags or puffiness. The eyelids appear more refreshed, alert, and rejuvenated, enhancing your overall facial aesthetics. The results of eyelid surgery are long-lasting and natural. Very few patients need to undergo a second surgery. The improvements last around 10-15 years, as the natural ageing process continues and the results vary between patients.

Blepharoplasty London - Frequently asked questions

A natural part of the aging process is the development of wrinkles, often around the eyes. Skin around the eyes also becomes less elastic, resulting in droopy eyelids. Sometimes this happens at an early age. You may start working your forehead muscles harder in an effort to lift your drooping eyelids. This may cause brow aches and fatigue. If you are having these symptoms, or simply do not like the way your eyelids appear, you may be a candidate for a blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty is safe when performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon. Like any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks and potential complications, but these are minimum. Some potential risks of blepharoplasty may include temporary swelling, bruising, discomfort, dry eyes, infection, asymmetry, scarring, or changes in eyelid function.

Eyelid surgery may leave scars, but they are typically minimal and well-concealed within the natural creases of the eyelids or along the lash line. In upper eyelid blepharoplasty, incisions are made along the natural crease of the upper eyelid, where resulting scars tend to blend in and become less noticeable over time. For lower eyelid blepharoplasty, incisions are made along the lower lash line (transcutaneous approach) or inside the lower eyelid (transconjunctival approach). Scars from the transcutaneous approach may be slightly more visible initially but often fade and become less noticeable.

The results of eyelid surgery are long-lasting and can be enjoyed for many years. While individual experiences may vary, most patients can expect the results to last for approximately 10 -15 years or even longer. Factors such as genetics, aging, sun exposure, and lifestyle habits can influence the longevity of results.

The duration of a blepharoplasty procedure can vary depending on several factors, including the extent of correction needed, whether upper or lower eyelids are being addressed, and whether the surgery is combined with other procedures. On average, blepharoplasty typically takes approximately one to two hours to complete.

In most cases, we do not apply bandages over their eyes after blepharoplasty. Instead, the surgeon may apply small strips of surgical tape or adhesive skin closures to the incision sites to support the healing process and protect the delicate skin around the eyes. These dressings are typically lightweight and allow for proper airflow to the surgical area.

You should avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and bending over for the first few days following surgery. Additionally, it’s advisable to refrain from activities that could increase blood flow to the surgical area or strain the eyes, such as vigorous exercise, swimming, or wearing contact lenses, during the initial recovery period.As for working on the computer, it may be possible to do so shortly after surgery. However, prolonged periods of screen time may strain the eyes and exacerbate swelling or discomfort.

The timing for returning to work after eyelid surgery can vary depending on several factors, including the nature of your job. In general, many patients can expect to return to work within 7 to 10 days after surgery, although this timeframe may vary. For people with sedentary or office-based jobs that do not involve strenuous physical activity or heavy lifting, returning to work may be possible relatively soon after surgery. For people with more physically demanding jobs or those that require prolonged periods of screen time or concentration, such as computer work or driving, it may be advisable to wait until swelling and bruising have further diminished.

During eyelid surgery patients typically undergo local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia to ensure comfort. As a result, you will not experience pain or discomfort during the surgery itself. After the procedure, it’s common to experience some mild discomfort, swelling, bruising, and tightness around the eyes. These are manageable with prescribed pain medications and cold compresses.

Yes. Combining blepharoplasty with other cosmetic procedures can provide comprehensive facial rejuvenation by addressing multiple concerns simultaneously. Whether it’s combining blepharoplasty with a facelift to rejuvenate both the upper and lower face or complementing it with a brow lift to achieve harmonious results in the upper face, the synergistic effects can enhance overall facial aesthetics. Your surgeon will recommend you the right procedures for you.
