Eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty surgery, involves removing excess skin or fat from around the eyes to give a more alert and youthful appearance.
The procedure consists of cuts along the natural creases of the eyelid or just under the eyelashes on the lower lids. Excess fat, muscle and loose skin are removed, and the cut is closed using stitches
The risks that go along with eyelid surgery are;
- Damages to the surface of the eyeball or the surrounding muscles
- Tightness of the eyelids making it difficult to close eyes
- Haemorrhage / bleeding
- Bleeding behind the eye
- Uneven appearance
- Dry, itchy eyes
- Sensitivity to light and wind
- Blurred vision
- Corneal damage
