Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Reshaping) at The Cooden Medical Group
A blepharoplasty is an operation to tighten the skin and soft tissues of your eyelids. As you get older your skin becomes less elastic. Gravity pulls down on the skin and soft tissues of your eyelids.
The Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Reshaping) Procedure
A blepharoplasty can be done under a local anaesthetic injected into the area. The procedure can take up to one hour.
Your surgeon will make a cut in the natural skin crease of your upper eyelid or below your eyelashes in your lower lid. They will remove any excess skin and fat and close the wound using very fine stitches.
