About the procedure

Blepharoplasty is a form of eyelid surgery. There are two types, upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty. Both surgeries rejuvenate the area around the eyes, removing the heaviness or puffiness around the eyes and providing a smoother, more youthful look.

You can view blepharoplasty before and after images in our gallery below.

What is an upper blepharoplasty?

Upper blepharoplasty is the most common and least complicated procedure. Upper blepharoplasty involves surgically removing the look of ‘hooded eyes’ or overhanging fat and skin under the eyebrow.

What is a lower blepharoplasty?

Lower blepharoplasty is similar in that loose skin and fat are surgically removed under the eyes, or on the tarsal plate. This surgery alleviates the look of sagging or ‘bulging’ eyes.

For either surgery, sometimes fat is repositioned, and skin tightened depending on the architecture of the eye and the patient’s desired outcome.

What are the benefits of blepharoplasty?

The benefits of upper and lower blepharoplasty are radical.

Lower blepharoplasty benefits:

Who is a good candidate for blepharoplasty?

  • Candidates for upper blepharoplasty are people with droopy skin on the upper eyelids that make their eyes appear smaller than they are. It is also beneficial for people with hanging eyelid skin that impedes their vision.
  • Candidates for lower blepharoplasty are those who have droopy lower eyelid skin that causes more of the whites of the eye to show. This alleviates the ‘googley’ or ‘bug eyes’ look.

Blepharoplasty can be performed at any age as long as the patient is over 18, but most patients are usually over 35 years of age.

This surgery may not be suitable for people who have a pre-existing eye issue, are smokers or are not in good health.

Blepharoplasty FAQs

Blepharoplasty is a type of eyelid surgery to remove excess skin that hangs under the eyebrow bone and over the

eye. This surgery is undertaken for aesthetic or functional reasons or both. Many people prefer to have the extra

tissue detached to give a less tired and fresh, younger look.  For some patients, the removal of the tissue enables

better peripheral vision. This surgery can be combined with lower blepharoplasty (lower eyelid surgery).

Yes. There are two main types of blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery.

  • Upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid surgery is an operation for hanging eyelids or ‘hooded eyes’. Superfluous fat, skin and muscle is reshaped which leaves youthful and rejuvenated eyes. As the incision is made in the natural crease of the eye, scarring is barely visible.
  • Lower blepharoplasty, or lower eyelid surgery, is carried out inside of the eye at the eyelash line to remove fatty tissue below the eye. The result is smooth skin that is no longer puffy on the underside of the eye. Scarring is not visible due to the surgery being performed inside the eye.

Upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid surgery, is the extraction of redundant hanging skin above the eyes and under the brows. To confirm your expectations, the surgeon identifies the incision areas (where the skin will be removed and possibly tightened) with a dermatologically-suitable marker pen. Skin is numbed and you’ll go under general anaesthetic. The surgeon makes the incision in the eye crease and takes away unwanted skin and fat or the ‘hoods’ of the eyes. After the procedure is complete the incision is closed by using sutures or surgical glue. The scarring is not noticeable as it sits in the natural crease of the eye.


Lower blepharoplasty, or lower eyelid surgery, is the removal of droopy hanging skin under the eyes. The surgeon marks up your face with a marker and verifies the procedure and the expected result. Numbing cream is applied to the skin, then you’re put under general anaesthetic. The surgeon doesn’t go through the outer skin but instead pulls the lower eyelid down and makes an internal incision inside the eye. Unwanted fat is removed, and the incision is closed with stitches that dissolve. As the incision is internal there is no scarring.

Once the blepharoplasty procedure is complete, you’ll awaken and sense some swelling and numbness. You may also have the appearance of 'black eyes' and may feel some discomfort or pain (for which you'll receive pain-relief medication). At first, your eyes will be bandaged so you will not be able to see but don't worry, the medical staff are very attentive and will take exceptional care of you. Your eyes may also feel itchy and the skin will feel tight. When the bandages are later taken off, you may have temporary light sensitivity and blurry vision. Most people return to work within a fortnight of surgery. Swelling and bruising will disappear within three months and then you will see your desired result.

Upper blepharoplasty results can remain for 5-7 years.  

Lower blepharoplasty or lower eyelid surgery can last for life.

Blepharoplasty surgery times vary based on every person’s eye shape.  On average, eyelid surgery can take 1 to 2 hours.

Everyone has unique needs and this means there will likely be slight surgical variations, especially if your surgeon is repositioning skin around the eye. The standard recovery time is between 1 to 3 months. Most people resume working and socialising again after two weeks. Your surgeon will advise you appropriately as to when and how you can resume your normal activities again.

  • Upper blepharoplasty - our surgeon will make an incision via the natural crease in the eye, this will leave a scar that is barely noticeable and will fade over time.
  • Lower blepharoplasty - our surgeon performs this procedure by creating an incision at the lash line so there is no external scarring.
