Eyelid Surgery - Blepharoplasty

The eyelids are one of the first areas of the face to show changes with ageing. Most commonly this occurs with drooping upper eyelids or puffiness of the lower eyelids, giving a tired appearance.

Blepharoplasty is an operation designed to remove excess skin folds and bulging fat bags. It rejuvenates the upper part of the face, making you look fresher and more relaxed, and feeling more self-confident. Blepharoplasty is often combined with a browlift to lift sagging eyebrows or a facelift or necklift to improve the lower part of the face.

Blepharoplasty is a commonly performed procedure with a very high degree of patient satisfaction and low risk of complications.

Information about Eyelid Surgery

There are many medical conditions which may affect the outcome of Eyelid Surgery, including thyroid disease, high blood pressure, smoking, and eye conditions such as glaucoma, dry eyes, and allergic conjunctivitis, and you should discuss these with your doctor prior to surgery.

Preoperative consultation on at least two separate occasions is essential to ensure a realistic expectation of the surgery. This involves your Surgeon showing you before and after photos of other patients who have undergone the surgery, giving you reading material on the surgery, and ideally talking to a patient who has had this type of surgery.

Most insurance companies and Medicare do not cover Eyelid Surgery unless upper lid skin excess affects or obscures vision. If the upper eyelid skin touches or hangs over the lash/eyelid margin, then Medicare and health insurance companies contribute to the cost of the surgery. Your Surgeon can advise you if this may be the situation for you.

In some cases Dr. Sellars may require you to have an eye examination with an eye Specialist prior to the surgery.
