Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of the eyes by addressing issues such as sagging skin, puffiness, and wrinkles around the eyelids. This surgical intervention can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or both, depending on your aesthetic goals and concerns.

During blepharoplasty, the surgeon carefully removes excess skin, fat, or muscle tissue from the eyelids. The objective is to create a more youthful, refreshed appearance by tightening the skin and restoring a smoother contour to the eyes. This procedure is commonly chosen by individuals who experience drooping eyelids (ptosis), bags under the eyes, or a tired and aged look due to the natural ageing process.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty:

  • Improved Appearance:

The primary benefit of eyelid surgery is the enhancement of the overall appearance of the eyes. The procedure can impart a more youthful and vibrant look by addressing signs of ageing around the eyelids.
  • Enhanced Vision:

In some cases, individuals with significant upper eyelid sagging may experience improved peripheral vision and reduced obstruction after undergoing upper eyelid surgery.
  • Boost in Confidence:

Many individuals find that blepharoplasty not only rejuvenates their physical appearance but also boosts their self-confidence and overall sense of well-being.

Eyelid Surgery Methods

Upper Eyelid Surgery

The surgeon makes discreet incisions within the natural creases of the upper eyelids, ensuring scars are well-concealed. Through these incisions, excess skin, muscle, and fat are removed or repositioned to achieve a more youthful and open-eyed look.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Traditional lower blepharoplasty involves an incision just below the lower lash line. Excess skin, muscle, and fat are then adjusted to diminish puffiness and smooth the lower eyelid area. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is suitable for those with isolated fat deposits and minimal excess skin, this technique involves an incision inside the lower eyelid, leaving no visible external scars.

After Effects of the Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia with sedation, which could mean spending half of the day in the hospital.

While eyelid surgery is generally considered safe, like any surgery, it carries potential side effects and risks. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling around the eyes, which typically subsides within a week or two. Mild discomfort and pain are normal during the initial days after surgery. Some individuals may experience temporary dryness or irritation in the eyes and blurred vision as well. 

The recovery period varies among individuals, but most people can return to their normal activities within a week, with careful post-operative care. 

To minimise risks and optimise outcomes, individuals should carefully follow their surgeon’s pre-operative and post-operative instructions.

Why Should You Go for Eyelid Surgery?

There are various reasons why Singaporeans may opt for cosmetic procedures, like upper blepharoplasty surgery. However, the primary reason is usually to enhance one’s natural facial features, especially if the person desires bigger, more attractive eyes. 

Eyelid surgery can also help rejuvenate the eyelids, as well as correct functional issues such as eyelid malposition or abnormalities that affect eyelid function.

Compared to non-surgical alternatives, blepharoplasty is often the best way to correct these issues and achieve immediate and permanent results.

Frequently Asked Questions

The recovery period for eyelid surgery varies from person to person. Eyelid swelling after surgery may last for 1-2 months, occasionally longer, depending on the surgery performed. You may experience temporary dryness, tightness, or sensitivity in the eye area. Your surgeon will provide specific post-operative care instructions to promote healing and minimize any complications.

The results of eyelid surgery are long-lasting. However, the natural aging process will continue, and the effects of aging may gradually reappear over time. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including protecting your skin from sun exposure and avoiding smoking, can help prolong the results.
