Asian eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty): What you need to know

Our eyes are one of the most significant features of our facial profile. Yet, for one reason or another, many people spend their lives unhappy with the appearance of their eyes.

For some people of East Asian descent, eye shape can sometimes be characterised by a single rather than a double eyelid, causing the eyes to appear puffy or droopy, with a smaller appearance. For some, this is an aspect of their facial appearance they’d love to address – in which case, Asian eyelid surgery is a fantastic and simple way to open, brighten and widen the eyes.

By removing excess sagging skin from the upper eyelid and creating a natural-looking crease, blepharoplasty surgery is a safe and simple way to achieve a brighter and more defined eye appearance, with enhanced eye contours and a beautifully natural yet wider shape.

At Medical Aesthetics 360, our highly skilled team of trained surgeons are qualified to perform blepharoplasty surgery from the comfort of our state-of-the-art Sydney clinics. Choosing to undergo a blepharoplasty procedure with us means you’ll benefit from the highest level of expertise, an unrivalled standard of care, and truly exceptional results.

Asian Eyelid Surgery: Frequently Asked Questions

What does a blepharoplasty procedure involve?

Your blepharoplasty surgery will be carried out in the comfort of one of our state-of-the-art Sydney clinics, by a highly-trained surgeon.

The procedure will begin with the application of numbing medication to ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the treatment.

During the surgery, your surgeon will cut along the fold of the eyelid, remove excess skin, muscle and fat, then close the cut. If your procedure involves correcting a drooping upper eyelid, your surgeon may also perform ptosis to provide extra support to the eyebrow.

Your blepharoplasty surgery will usually take between 60 and 90 minutes.

When will I see the results of my blepharoplasty surgery?

Post-surgery bruising and swelling will generally subside within 10 to 14 days, after which you’ll notice an enhanced eye appearance with wider, brighter eyes. Any surgical scarring you experience can take a few months to fade.

How long do the results of a blepharoplasty procedure last?

For some people, the results of a blepharoplasty surgery will last a lifetime. For others, results can remain for at least 5-10 years.

What happens after my procedure?

After your surgery, you’ll be monitored for a short while to ensure there are no complications and will then be able to return home the same day.

You may experience the following temporary symptoms following your surgery:

  • Blurred vision
  • Watery eyes
  • Extra sensitivity to light
  • Double vision
  • Puffy eyelids
  • Swelling and bruising around the eyes

Your surgeon will provide you with detailed post-surgery instructions in order to minimise pain and discomfort, as well as to avoid any issues. These may include the following:

  • Applying ice packs to the eyes regularly
  • Cleaning the eyelids as per the surgeon’s instructions
  • Using prescribed eye drops
  • Avoiding heavy lifting, strenuous activities and swimming for a week
  • Not smoking
  • Not rubbing your eyes
  • Avoiding wearing contact lenses for two weeks
  • Wearing dark sunglasses to protect your eyes from sun and wind

Are there any potential risks of eye surgery?

As with any surgery, there are some potential risks involved with undergoing a blepharoplasty procedure. These include:

  • Dry, irritated eyes
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Skin discolouration
  • Temporary blurred vision or, rarely, loss of eyesight
  • Risks associated with surgery in general, e.g. reaction to anaesthetic or blood clots
  • A requirement for follow-up surgery

Your surgeon will discuss the procedure with you in great detail to ensure you are fully aware of what’s involved and any potential side effects.

How much does a blepharoplasty procedure cost in Sydney?

Our highly personalised level of service means that we’ll tailor a treatment plan to suit your specific needs, concerns, and desired results. As a result, treatment pricing will vary from patient to patient.

During your initial consultation, one of our trained doctors will conduct an assessment of your eyes, discuss your situation, and develop a customised plan for your treatment. This will include a detailed breakdown of costs, timeframes and what to expect.
