Blepharoplasty surgery, commonly known as an eyelid reduction, is an operation to reshape the eyelids. An upper-eyelid reduction can improve your vision and make you look younger. A lower-eyelid reduction can help to reduce wrinkles and puffiness. Blepharoplasty is usually carried out under general anaesthetic followed by a one night stay in hospital. The incision for the upper eyelid is in the natural crease line approximately 10mm above the eyelashes and extends out into the ‘crow’s foot’ area. Excess skin and muscle, which forms the hood, is removed. At the end of the operation, ointment is applied to the eyelids. This contains antibiotic to prevent infection and a steroid which is anti-inflammatory to decrease swelling.
