Blepharoplasty generally takes anywhere from 1 – 3 hours, depending on the patient and their expected outcome. The procedure typically includes the placement of tiny incisions in the natural contours around the eyes. Each incision is situated in a discreet location, to leave the resulting scar barely visible. The surgeon will then remove any fatty tissue and tighten loose skin in the upper eyelids, then target the lower eyelids. Advanced techniques are applied to eliminate puffiness, remove overall sagginess and reduce the presence of dark circles.
Non invasive rejuvenating methods, such as a BOTOX® injection, may also be used to achieve the best result. You’ll learn all about the methods and techniques most suitable for you during your personalized pre-surgical consultation with our Medical Consultant and Plastic Surgeon.

The procedure is designed to make you look more rested, more youthful, and as a result, you’ll be happier with your appearance!
