Eyelid Surgery Gold Coast
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin in the eyelids. It is commonly performed for cosmetic purposes to create a more youthful appearance. Eyelid surgery can also be used for medical reasons, such as correcting a patient’s drooping upper lids, which can obscure their eyesight.
Upper Eyelid Surgery – performed on the patient’s upper eyelid. When we age, the skin in our upper eyelids loses its elasticity which creates sagging, often known as ‘hooding’. This droopy skin can have a detrimental impact on our eyesight. During surgery, the excess skin is removed, eliminating any ill effects that may have been caused by the sagging skin and reversing signs of aging.
Any patient whose vision or appearance is being impaired by excess skin in the upper lid is a suitable candidate for eyelid surgery.
It typically takes around 7 to 10 days for the wound to heal well enough to be able to return to work. Immediately following the procedure, patients will experience some swelling and bruising. Our Doctors will provide you with specific instructions on caring for your post-operative wound.
Eye drops are typically administered to help minimise the risk of infection while analgesics are used to help dull the pain. Stitches are removed from the skin around seven days after the procedure.
As with any surgical procedure no matter how minor or straightforward, there is always a possibility that complications will occur. At Skin Clinic Robina, all surgery is performed with the strictest adherence to safety and sanitary standards to minimise the risk of such problems occurring.
