This aesthetic concern can be a result of the ageing process. It can also appear earlier in age. Excess skin around the eyelids can be an uncomfortable condition with patients finding it difficult to keep their eyes open. This condition can cause patients to appear more tired and angry than what they actually feel.

How Ashbury Cosmetics in Brisbane, and on the Gold Coast, can help you

Treatment for the condition can be carried out as an outpatient and performed under local anaesthetic after a comprehensive eye examination has been conducted by your optician. During the procedure, your surgeon will mark the areas of the eyelid requiring attention.

Excess skin or fat may be removed to improve the appearance and function of the eyelids. In some cases, the muscles controlling the eyelids may be modified to help them function properly. Following the procedure, the initial few days may see you experience some swelling and discomfort but this will ease as the eyelids heal.

Bruising is common after the procedure, with the appearance of “black eyes” to be expected. As the eyelids heal, the bruising vanishes. The incisions are usually made in the normal skin creases, so in time they will be hardly noticeable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the more frequently asked questions from patients before they undergo blepharoplasty:

Since this is a surgical procedure, there will be some scarring. However, the scarring with this procedure is minimal and after a couple of months will be virtually non-existent. The scars are minimal because they are usually within the normal folds and creases of the upper and lower eyelids.

The average age is 35 for this treatment. However, it depends entirely upon the individual. When you visit Ashbury Cosmetics in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast ask our expert staff if you are a suitable candidate for this surgery.

There will be some bruising and swelling, how much does depend on the individual as some are more prone to bruising than others. After eye surgery your eyelids may feel sore and tight as the anaesthesia wears off. For the first few days the swelling may mean your vision will be blurry and possibly watery.

Once the swelling goes down you will begin to see the results clearly.
