Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery

Cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, improves the appearance of both the upper and lower eyelids. People over the age of 35 commonly choose to undergo a blepharoplasty procedure to increase their confidence and appearance, reduce sagginess and assist with vision and tightness of the skin.

Upper Eyelid

Upper blepharoplasty is popular with those who have excess fat or skin above their eyelids. It involves removal of the excesses, which reduces sagginess and clears vision.

Double Eyelid Surgery

Another type of upper eyelid surgery is known as double eyelid surgery, which is very popular with people who wish to “westernise” their eyelids.

Possible Risks

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks involved with bilateral blepharoplasty. These include:

  • Allergic reactions to anaesthetics
  • Temporary blurred or reduced vision
  • Blood clots
  • Dry or watery eyes
  • Difficulty closing your eyes
  • Permanent blindness (extremely rare)

Your surgeon will be able to discuss any potential risks that are relevant to your particular situation,


Recovery after the surgery differs from patient to patient, but it generally involves the following:

  • Your surgeon will issue you with instructions to follow. These may include using ointments, tear drops and ice packs.
  • Instructions to not touch or rub your eyes, even though they will likely be swollen or sore.
  • Protecting your eyes from the sunlight, which is common for most eye surgeries.
  • Reporting any bleeding or intense pain as soon as possible to your surgeon.
