The thin, delicate skin around the eye area can quickly show the effects of the sun, ageing and lifestyle.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) , works to address concerns like loose, sagging skin and wrinkles. Blepharoplasty aids in the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both, and to the surrounding area of your eyes.
Dr Lim is experienced in facial plastic surgery and is known for creating a naturally tighter appearance. During your consultation, Dr Lim will discuss all your options, as it is possible to combine blepharoplasty with other procedures, such as a browplasty (brow lift).
While eyelid surgery can be expected to address certain conditions permanently, you will continue to age naturally. Lifelong sun protection will help to maintain your results.
Following the procedure, you will have fine stitches in your upper and/or lower eyelid. The ends of these will be secured to your face with surgical tapes, which must not be removed. These stitches require no special care except to keep them dry after showering or washing your face.
Initial healing may include some swelling, bruising, irritation or dry eyes and discomfort that can be controlled with medication, cold compresses and ointment. Your final results will appear within several weeks, but it may take longer for your incision lines to fully refine.
Dr Lim will do his best to minimise scarring, and the surgical method and required incision will be discussed with you in the consultation process.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) is individually customised to each patient depending on their personal requirements — during the consultation period, Dr Lim will take you through all available options and possible outcomes.
The procedure involves removing sagging skin, creating a naturally tighter appearance. Dr. Lim will mark the area of the eyelid to be concentrated on. Excess skin or fatty tissue may be removed to aid in the appearance of the eyelid.
Blepharoplasty is performed under general anaesthetic in an accredited hospital. For lower eyelid surgery, you will be required to stay in hospital overnight. Dr Lim will review you post-operatively and give you specific instructions on how to care for your eyes. He will prescribe analgesia, antibiotics and ointments that will aid healing and reduce the potential for infection and bruising.
My Klinik staff will stay in touch with you after the procedure, monitor your progress and answer any questions or concerns as they arise. You’ll have reviews with Dr Lim one week, one month and three months after surgery.
Our goal is to make your experience as supportive as possible — Dr Lim and the My Klinik staff are always willing to answer any questions you may have.
