Eyes Lift & Eye Bag Removal
Blepharoplasty is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes.
Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of your field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these vision problems and make your eyes appear younger and more alert.

Duration of Treatment and Recovery
Eye Lift procedure typically take one hour, with a recovery period of one week, and removal of stitches after one week.
Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty
The upper blepharoplasty is performed to correct for sagging or hooded upper eyelids. Here’s what you can expect from the procedure:
● General/local anaesthesia is provided
● A full incision is made along the upper eyelid crease.
● Excess tissue is removed.
● Remaining tissue is lifted.
● The incision is closed.
The lower blepharoplasty procedure for sagging or bulging lower eyelids follows a similar process:
● Incision is made below the lower eyelid eyelashes
● Excess fat is removed/ transpositioned
● Muscle and skin are tightened
● The incision is sutured
