Eyelid Surgery Benefits

Welcome to Aesthetica in Melbourne, your trusted destination for enhancing your natural beauty and regaining confidence through advanced cosmetic procedures. In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the intricate world of blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, exploring its benefits, process, recovery, and more.

With over 20 years of experience in cosmetic surgery including blepharoplasty, we are dedicated to helping you achieve a unique and personalized experience.

Restoring Youthful Appearance

One of the primary benefits of blepharoplasty is its ability to restore a youthful and refreshed appearance to the eyes. By addressing concerns such as sagging skin, under-eye bags, and fine lines, blepharoplasty can take years off your appearance and enhance your overall facial harmony.

Improving Vision and Function

For individuals with significant eyelid hooding or ptosis (drooping), blepharoplasty can improve vision by removing excess tissue that obstructs the line of sight. This functional aspect of the procedure not only enhances visual clarity but also contributes to a better quality of life.

Boosting Self-Confidence

Feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your eyelids can take a toll on your self-esteem. Blepharoplasty can help boost your confidence by providing natural-looking results that enhance your features without looking overdone or unnatural.

Understanding Blepharoplasty

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the eyelids. It targets various concerns such as excess skin, fat deposits, and muscle laxity that contribute to a tired or aged look around the eyes.

Who Can Benefit from Blepharoplasty?

Individuals experiencing drooping or sagging upper eyelids, puffiness beneath the eyes, or impaired vision due to overhanging eyelid skin are prime candidates for blepharoplasty. This procedure isn’t just about aesthetics; it can also alleviate functional issues related to eyelid heaviness.

Eyelid Surgery

It’s important to consider all aspects of your upper face, including eyelids, eyebrows, corners of the eyes, skin around the eyes, and upper cheeks when contemplating eyelid rejuvenation.

All aspects of your upper face need to be considered when considering eyelid rejuvenation

  • eyelids,
  • eyebrows
  • corners of the eyes
  • the skin around the eyes
  • upper cheeks

Each of these areas needs to be assessed both individually and in terms of their overall impact on your features. Our team at Aesthetica Image Centre understands the importance of a comprehensive approach to ensure the best possible results.

Upper Blepharoplasty

An upper eyelid surgery focuses on correcting drooping upper eyelids, which can make you appear tired and even impair your vision. By removing excess skin and repositioning or removing fat deposits, this procedure provides a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid surgery addresses concerns such as under-eye bags and sagging lower eyelids. By removing excess skin, redistributing fat, and tightening the surrounding muscles and skin, lower eyelid surgery can help you achieve a rejuvenated and well-rested look.

Surgical Techniques

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on the individual’s concerns. The surgical technique may involve the careful removal of excess skin, fat, and muscle tissue, as well as the repositioning of surrounding structures to achieve optimal results.


Blepharoplasty is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, ensuring a comfortable and pain-free experience for the patient.
After the procedure, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort around the eyes, which can be managed with prescribed medications and cold compresses.


Rest is crucial after your procedure.
Here’s what you can expect during the recovery process:

  • Stitches removal: Your stitches will be removed between 5-9 days, depending on your healing progress.
  • Swelling and bruising: If they occur, swelling and bruising may take about a week to subside
  • Final result: You will generally see the full results of your blepharoplasty after 4-6 weeks.
  • Time off work: Due to swelling and bruising, taking a week off work may be advisable.
  • Aftercare treatments: LED sessions can aid in recovery, reduce swelling, and promote the healing of scars.

How much does eyelid surgery cost?

When you’re ready to explore your options, we recommend scheduling a personal consultation with an experienced Cosmetic Doctor. During this consultation, your doctor will provide you with detailed information about your eyelids, and cost and discuss any associated costs.
If you would like an estimate, please chat online, call or email with a quick message on your concerns and will ill happily give an estimate to you.
