Blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid reduction, eye lift or eye bag removal), refers to the surgical rejuvenation of the eyelid which is often used in conjunction with non-surgical procedures. It applies to both the upper and the lower eyelids but is commonly used to counteract the effects of ageing on the skin muscle and fat around the eyes.
Dr. Sasi Kumar will also need to ascertain whether it is just the eyelids, which are of concern, or whether the surrounding brow, temple, cheekbones and tear trough are also requiring treatment. All surgery can be carried out as a day case, Usually under Total Intravenous Anaesthesia (TIVA) with the patient only lightly anaesthetised. Smaller procedures can be carried out under local anaesthetic.
