Blepharoplasty is the surgical procedure to reduce skin and fat excess and tighten muscles in the eyelids. In most patients the fat deposits are drooping due to muscle laxity and cautious muscle tightening or excision is all that is needed along with skin excision. Dr Sawhney performs an effective and efficient procedure in most patients with muscle tightening and limited if any fat excision. This reduces recovery time and risks of complications.
The skin around your eyes is one of the first areas of your face to show visible signs of ageing. As skin ages, it gradually loses its elasticity and muscles under the skin of the eyelids lose tone. Behind your eyelids are pockets of fat that bulge when the skin and muscle become loose. These cause “bags” under the eyes that can make you look tired and even angry when you are not.

You will have some bruising and swelling after your eyelid surgery. Most of this will dissipate by 1-2 weeks. Using ice packs at home can help with your recovery. At 1 week you will come to have your dressings and sutures removed. By 4 weeks the swelling has usually resolved and you can see most of the final result.
