Blepharoplasty, the medical term for lifting the upper or lower eyelid or removing the lachrymal sacs, is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures with both men and women. Requiring comparatively little surgical work, tired or sad-looking eyes can be given a radiant, youthful appearance. Corrections are mostly performed on upper and lower eyelids with festoons (“hoods” or “bags” respectively), and crow’s feet around the eyes. Festoons often appear when the delicate skin surrounding the eyes loses its strength, usually around the age of 40 or 50. Similarly, the eyebrows may droop with age.

Upper eyelid lift: After a local anaesthetic has been administered, a scalpel or CO2 laser is used to cut along the fold of the eyelid. This removes the excess skin as well as the muscle and fatty tissue underneath it. The wound is closed with a tiny suture inside the skin, a subcuticular suture. If a laser beam is used, the wound takes longer to heal, whereas a scalpel operation requires additional haemostasis. Swellings are soothed with cooling pads. The stitches are removed after five days
