Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery makes eyes look younger by smoothing and firming up the lids, reducing the hooded appearance and removing under-eye pouches.

The operation is usually performed under local anaesthetic. For upper lid surgery, an incision is made in the natural crease, and drooping skin, muscle and fat are removed before the cut is stitched. For the lower lid, the incision is made immediately below the lower lashes, and fat, skin and slack muscle are removed.

Most patients can go home on the same day as the operation. Any pain should ease after a couple of days, but the eyes will be swollen for up to a fortnight, and most people wear dark glasses to hide their eyes for 7-10 days. You may also have temporary problems with closing the eyelids properly, and have blurred vision, dry eyes or over-production of tears. All these side-effects should pass as the eyelids heal. Sleeping with your head propped up helps reduce swelling, and you should avoid strenuous activity for one month after surgery.
