Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Sydney

Have your eyes taken on a puffy, or permanently tired appearance? As one of the first things others notice about you, puffiness or bags around your eyes can leave you with a look which does not reflect how you really feel.

Blepharoplasty is a commonly-performed procedure which can help you to regain a more youthful and revitalised appearance around your eyes. In some cases where the skin drooped enough obstruct your vision, you may even find your sight improves.

Through eyelid surgery, Dr Lisa Friederich is able to address concerns such as:

  • Puffiness or ‘bags’ under the eyes
  • Sagging, loose skin around the eyes
  • Drooping of the lower eyelid
  • Wrinkles under the eye

Your eyelid rejuvenation journey

At your eyelid rejuvenation surgery consultation, Dr Lisa Friederich will discuss your concerns and goals with you at length, as well as assessing your unique circumstances. Based upon these factors, she will make a recommendation as to the best approach to achieve your desired outcome.

Depending on these findings, she may suggest one of the following techniques.

Upper eyelid surgery – This addresses drooping of the upper eyelid, which can commonly result in obstructions to your vision. Upper eyelid surgery is performed via tiny incisions placed in the crease of your upper eyelid, meaning any scarring is generally very well hidden. In some cases, Dr Lisa may find that the drooping of your eyelids has been causes by your eyebrows, and may recommend a brow lift over eyelid surgery.

Lower eyelid surgery – Puffiness or bags under the eyes can be addressed either by removing or repositioning the fat deposits under the eyes, or tightening the skin around the area.

Double blepharoplasty – This procedure addresses issues with both the upper and lower eyelids in the same procedure.

While this will be dependent on whether you require upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or double blepharoplasty, in most cases this procedure will take between one and two hours to complete, and can be performed either under local or general anaesthesia.

Most patients experience swelling and bruising following eyelid surgery, however this should start to abate inside a week or two. Dr Lisa Friederich will provide you with comprehensive post-surgical instructions to follow upon your release; to optimise your results, please ensure you follow these closely.

No. Each and every case will be different from the last. Dr Lisa Friederich is a caring and compassionate female plastic surgeon who will carefully tailor your procedure to meet your unique goals and circumstances.
