About The Procedure

ImageEyelid Surgery

We have all heard the saying “The eyes are the windows to your soul”. The signs of premature aging, such as dark circles, sagging upper and lower eyelids, fine lines and wrinkles, can make you look tired and older. Eyelid lift (or blepharoplasty) is the recommended and most often preferred treatment for removing bags under the eyes or improving droopy eyelids. These aging eye conditions can add years to your appearance and even impair your vision. If you have either or both drooping eyelids or bags under your eyes, Sydney cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Darryl Hodgkinson, can enhance your appearance and give your face a more youthful appearance with an upper, lower or combined eyelid lift To achieve the best overall facial rejuvenation result and a look that is uniform each patient is assessed based on their individual needs and desires It is not uncommon for patients seeking eyelid surgery to have other facial rejuvenation procedures performed at the same time including facelift, browlift, skin resurfacing and often even Thermage or anti-wrinkle injections and injectible fillers.

How is eyelid lift surgery performed?

Eyelid surgery and other facial rejuvenation procedures are all is performed in our fully licensed and accredited day surgical facility located in Double Bay. Dr. Hodgkinson will make tiny incisions along the natural lines of your eyelids, which results in minimal scarring in the upper eyelid. For the lower eyelid, the transconjunctival approach is usually used which is inside the eyelid resulting in no visible scarring. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin from the upper and/or lower lids and Dr. Hodgkinson may remove fat and tighten muscle to help you attain a fresher, more alert yet completely natural eye expression.  

Recovery After Eyelid Surgery

Usually, you will be ready to return to work or normal activities in 7 to 14 days. Most patients are back to their normal routine within days, although complete recovery may take a few weeks. Swelling, bruising and some discomfort are part of the recovery process, and can be alleviated with cold compresses and appropriate medication. If you notice how your drooping eyelids and puffy or hollow under eye areas may be adding years to your age, ask Dr. Hodgkinson how a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) can help you. We can reassure you by showing you our patients’ before-and-after pictures that Dr. Hodgkinson will take an artistic approach and will personalize the surgery, as well as non-surgical services that is right for your unique face.
