Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty (BLEF-uh-roe-plas-tee) is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes.

Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of your field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these vision problems and make your eyes appear younger and more alert.

If you attend with a referral letter from Optometrist which confirms that there is a reduction of visual field, a Medicare Rebate applies.

Risks from this the surgery are rare. Dr Hasa does the procedure by local anaesthetic only. For the anxious patient, mild sedation in a form of sedating injection can be done prior to the procedure, if necessary. The Blepharoplasty is usually done on both eyes at the same time to achieve symmetrical result and surgery lasts 20 to 30 minutes. Sometimes only one eyelid needs correction, for example for a patient after stroke.

In total, you will be attending for three consultations.

  1. You will need pre-operative consult with the Dr. Hasa to discuss the procedure and make your decision.
  2. Booking for the procedure, allowing at least 30 minutes.
  3. Booking for Removal of Sutures and After Care instructions.

Possible risks of eyelid surgery include:

  • Infection and bleeding
  • Dry, irritated eyes
  • Difficulty closing your eyes or other eyelid problems
  • Noticeable scarring
  • The need for a follow-up surgery
