Is A Surgical Eyelid Lift The Best Option
Surgical Eye Lid Lift (Blepharoplasty) is a common surgical procedure here in Australia, but what exactly is it and is the procedure safe?
The procedure is used to take away any excess fat or skin that can build up around the upper eyelids and also to remove those unsightly pouches of skin under the eyes.
The procedures are usually intended to rejuvenate and aged appearance to the eyes, but can also be used where excess fat interferes with the sufferers vision.
These procedures can provide a more youthful appearance to the eyes but they will not cure the appearance of crow’s feet and dark circles under the eyes.
Classic Sign Of Ageing
As we get that little bit older, our eyelids tend to become thinner and less flexible, because of this they can start to sag and fold downwards. The fat that surrounds the eye also loses its rigidity and moves forward causing that ‘baggy’ look around the eye.
Blepharoplasty is usually carried out under general anaesthetic, the procedures are normally quite quick and in most cases patients can go home the same day. Charges do vary, but are normally between $3500 and $4000 for upper eyelid lift. Procedures carried out on the under eye tend to be more expensive at up to $6000.
The procedure is usually quite simple and quick to heal barring any post operative side effects or complications which could include
- Stiffness of the Eye Lids
- Dry Eyes
- Vision Problems
If they occur, These can often be alleviated by
- Using ice packs to reduce swelling
- Avoid using cosmetics until healed
- Avoid wearing contact lenses
- Stay clear of exposure to the sun
- Taking pain killers
