Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is the most common cosmetic facial surgical procedure. Blepharoplasty means getting rid of excess skin, muscle or fat or combinations of the above around the eyelids, without visible scars.

 

Upper lid blepharoplasty

Upper lid blepharoplasty refers to the removal of skin from the upper lids, which often make the eyes feel heavy and give you a tired look. Upper lid blepharoplasty may be enhanced with a brow lift.

 

Blepharoplasties can often be combined with CO2 laser resurfacing, brow lifts and thread lifts and the effect can be enhanced by our collagen tightening treatments (Thermage and
PRP). It is invasive surgery that needs to be discussed fully and needs a thorough eye assessment to assess the eye health before being undertaken.

 

Lower lid blepharoplasty

Lower lid blepharoplasty is more complex and can involve simply removing skin or can involve removing fat or bags underneath the eyelids. Lower lid blepharoplasty is sometimes combined with cheek lifting or lipofilling.

 

Blepharoplasties can often be combined with CO2 laser resurfacing, brow lifts and thread lifts and the effect can be enhanced by our collagen tightening treatments (Thermage and PRP). It is invasive surgery that needs to be discussed fully and needs a thorough eye assessment to assess the eye health before being undertaken.

 

Involved downtime: Downtime after blepharoplasty ranges from one to four weeks. This can be shortened by committing to our “Premium Package” to speed up healing.

Surgical procedures, which Dr Hollenbach offers are aimed at trimming away unwanted, skin as well as tightening and lifting procedures. In this section we will also consider thread lifting. Most procedures are either day stays at a surgical day centre requiring general anaesthesia, twilight anaesthesia or sedation, or done in the Preface clinic itself.

 

All surgical procedures have a varying amount of down time that can be reduced using the Preface “Premium Package”.
