Patient journey for blepharoplasty

The Operation

  • The ‘ellipse’ of extra skin (the skin to be removed) from the upper eyelid is marked in the sitting position. The bottom edge of the ellipse follows the line of the natural eyelid crease, and extends from the area just above the tear duct along to the outer edge of the eyelid opening, where it then angles slightly up and outward into an existing laugh line.
  • Incisions are carefully placed so that within several months, they will hardly be visible. On the upper lids, the incision is about an inch long and lies in the fold of the eyelid. On the lower lids, the incision is made just under the lashes in the natural crease.

Risks and possible complications of cosmetic eyelid (blepharoplasty) surgery


This is rare: it occurs in fewer than 1 in 10,000 people who undergo blepheroplasty. This small risk only applies if you are having fat removed.
