Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Droopy eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes can make you look tired and older than you are. In some cases it can even interfere with vision.

Eyelid surgery, also referred to as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that removes fat, excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.

It is common to combine eyelid surgery with other procedures, such as a facelift or brow lift, to help get rid of other lines on the face. Offering combined procedures such as these is a rapidly growing trend in cosmetic surgery.

Eyelid surgery was a popular cosmetic surgical procedure among Australians in 2009, accounting for 23 percent of total cosmetic surgical procedures performed. Close to 15,000 eyelid surgery procedures took place in Australia that year.

    Hello, my name is Martin Smith.
    I was born with ptosis on both my eyes where my eyelids lie just above the pupil.
    I was wondering if there was some kind of procedure that would help fix this.

    Hello: , what is the apropiate age to do a Lift eyes surgery, I have puffiness under the eyes because I been working at Night shifts in a nursing home, but I’m 35 years old but Im wondering to know if it’s to early or I have to wait a bit more longer thank you.

      Hi Michelly,
      Thanks for your question. Eye lift surgeries are performed on adults of all ages; 80 percent of eyelift patients are between the ages of 35 and 65, so it’s not too early to consider it. This surgery is commonly performed on women who have puffiness caused by a busy lifestyle or genetics rather than simply ageing. We advise you to consult with a surgeon to find out whether eyelift surgery is right for you at this time.
