Eyelid surgery corrects imperfections, for a fresh and rested looking appearance
Blepharoplasty is a procedure that repositions skin and redistributes or removes fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes; features that make you look older and more tired than you feel - they may even interfere with your vision (you may be eligible for a Medicare rebate if the upper lids obscure your eyesight).
Blepharoplasty has proven results when it comes to correcting imperfections like double or hooded eyelids, but it cannot lift sagging eyebrows, remove crow’s feet and other wrinkles or eliminate dark circles underneath your eyes.
There are very few complications with upper eyelid surgery. Lower lid surgery is more demanding and complex, ectropion (droopy lower lid) is a recognised complication of this surgery. This is often only temporary, but may require further surgery if it persists.
Some medical conditions make blepharoplasty more risky: these include thyroid problems like Grave’s disease, dry eyes (lack of adequate tears) and other eye conditions.
