Aesthetic Eyelid Surgery

​Your eyes are the first features that people notice and are an important aspect of facial attractiveness. Unfortunately, over time your upper and lower eyelids may become droopy or baggy because of the stretching of its skin, weakening of its muscles and bulging of fat pockets around the eyes, giving rise to unsightly 'eye bags' or 'rings'. Eyebrows may also sag or droop in the same way.

​Besides affecting your appearance, such conditions may also cause you to have a 'tired' or older look or cause symptoms of ocular fatigue. In severe cases, it could even lead to impaired vision.

​Blepharoplasty is the surgery on the upper and/or lower eyelids to treat droopy eyelids and eye bags. This is often done under local anaesthesia with sedation as a day surgery procedure with no need for patients to be warded in the hospital.

Sometimes, in order to enhance the results of your eyelid surgery, your doctor may also recommend additional treatment such as a brow lift to correct a sagging eyebrow. Chemical peels, skin laser therapy or Botox® injections are other helpful treatment in selected patients to eliminate undesirable facial lines and wrinkles.
