What is blepharoplasty?

Written by Dr. Julian De Silva

Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery, is the most commonly performed cosmetic operations that Dr De Silva completes for patients. As a combination of aging and genetics, the skin and muscle around the eyelids loosens, this resulting in loose skin, puffiness and dark rings that may give you a tired appearance. In addition, there are often changes in the anatomy that results in puffiness owing to fat protruding into the eyelids forming bags in the lower and upper eyelids. In expert hands eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty, rejuvenates your facial appearance, making you fresher and less tired. The eyelid anatomy is intricate, and blepharoplasty involves a combination of reshaping excess skin, muscle and prolapsing fat. Dr De Silva focuses on meticulous technique to ensure a natural looking result.

Why have blepharoplasty?

Eye contact is a key aspect of our daily communication and the appearance of your eyes form part of your first impression on meeting someone. Loose skin, puffiness or wrinkles are readily seen, and common symptoms patients describe include being asked if they are tired, stressed or lacking sleep. Heavy upper eyelids, dark circles or bags around the lower eyes, often lead to a tired and aged look. Although these changes are usually associated with ageing, some people develop these signs around their eyes from their late teens. The detail around the eyes are of great importance, as subtle changes of even less than half a millimetre can be discernible between the right and left sides.

Dr. De Silva also recommends

  • Natural result, every person’s eyes are different, bring an old photo from your 20s to your consultation
  • Scars must be positioned discreetly, 99% virtually invisible (meticulous technique, Multiple levels of stitches, no shortcuts)
  • Additional procedures including laser resurfacing and fat transfer are of key importance to give a long last that will last 10 years plus and avoid the need for filler
  • Older techniques in the lower eyelid can result in scars and change in shape in eyelid, only have this surgery with a modern doctor completing on inside of the eye (Trans-Conjunctival blepharoplasty)
  • Modern anaesthesia, termed sedation anaesthesia is far safer and recovery much faster than traditional general anaesthesia
  • With Dr. De Silva sedation anaesthesia, avoid general anaesthesia, all patients rapid recovery less than 30 minutes after procedure
  • Dr De Silva has pioneered use of regenerative medicine to enhance speed of recovery

Will I look like myself?

With good surgery friends and family members will not be able to tell you have undergone eyelid surgery. Dr De Silva customises his treatments based on your individual facial characteristics, often patients that have substantial rejuvenation are surprised how friends and family have not been able to tell.

Will people be able to tell?

Patient safety is of key importance for all facial plastic surgery. The intricate anatomy of the eyelids requires precision and care. Dr De Silva is a keen advocate of patient safety and has championed the need for patient safety on Sky news and medical conferences.

What is the recovery after blepharoplasty?

Most patients are able to return to social and professional activities after two weeks.The truth is that recovery after eyelid surgery does depend on several factors.

Bruising & Swelling

One to two weeks after eyelid surgery 80-90% of the bruising and swelling will have resolved. Rarely there can be a marked bruise that can take six-weeks to resolve, though it could be covered with concealer make up after one-week. Occasionally swelling can persist for several weeks, though usually there is pre-existing medical condition.


In terms of pain, there is surprisingly little, and usually for less than 24 hours, more than half of my patients never take any analgesia medication to relieve pain.


Blepharoplasty is surgery on the eyelids and not the eye itself. Although the vision may be a little blurred as a result of eyelid swelling and using eye drops after the surgery, your vision will still be reasonably good after the surgery. Using your eyes such as watching television, using the internet or similar activities are fine and will not harm the eyes, uncommonly the eyes may feel dry over the first week. Most patients are able to use their eyes for reading and sedentary activities even on the day of surgery.


In the upper eyelid the scars can be hidden in the natural crease in the skin, often they are discrete and difficult to see after a couple of weeks, they reach their final endpoint as long as 12-18 months later. There are steps that can be taken to speed up their recovery and hide their appearance. In the lower eyelid Dr De Silva hides the incisions on the inside lining of the eyelid so they are invisible in over ninety percent of patients.

Scars - female model


Reading, computer work, these kinds of activities can be started even on the day of surgery. Strenuous activities, such as lifting, should be avoided as this will raise your blood pressure and increase swelling.

Social Activities

Most can be restarted after two weeks, there may be some residual bruising and swelling, this can be covered up with make-up after 1-week.


As a general rule, this can be restarted 3-weeks after blepharoplasty.

Fast recovery techniques with Dr De Silva

The type of surgery you have will influence your healing, not all blepharoplasty is the same, whether the surgery is principally on the skin, muscle or underlying fat will influence the recovery. There are additional procedures and technology that can enhance recovery by reducing swelling and bruising including eyelid lifting (e.g. Canthopexy), electrocautery and regenerative medicine.

The techniques your surgeon employees to complete the surgery. Dr De Silva uses techniques that hides incisions in both the upper and lower eyelids, this aims to hide the scars and shorten the recovery period. Conservative surgery reduces trauma to the eyelid tissues and influences recovery, and innovative surgical techniques can be used to enhance recovery including technology (modern lasers and equipment) and regenerative medicine.

What are things you can do to speed up recovery?

There are many prescription and herbal medications that should be avoided both before and after surgery as they can encourage both bruising and swelling. Dr De Silva and his team gives comprehensive advise to all his patients on what should be avoided before and after surgery. In addition, there are some herbal medications, such as arnica, that should be taken to reduce bleeding, Dr De Silva provides his patients with a specialist herbal medicine than enhances recovery.

Icing the eyelids for the first three days, in the form of ice in a zip lock bag, frozen peas or gel mask all have a beneficial effect on reducing swelling when applied to the eyelids for ten minutes regularly after surgery. There are other factors such as resting and taking things easy during the daytime that will maintain a relatively low and stable blood pressure. Keeping your head elevated when sleeping, will also reduce bruising and swelling.

What are the factors that influence your recovery?

If you have any medical conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure these should be well controlled before surgery. Smoking delays healing therefore avoiding smoking both before and after surgery will speed up your recovery and improve the results. Two people having identical surgery will not heal in the same time, we all heal differently. Another factor is your mental attitude, cosmetic surgery can be an emotional experience for some patients, and having a positive mental attitude goes a long way towards a faster recovery.

How long will blepharoplasty take?

Eyelid surgery takes sixty to ninety minutes to complete depending on whether the upper or lower eyelids are undergoing surgery and additional techniques such as fat transfer and laser. Dr De Silva spends additional time to complete surgery for his patients as the eyelids are intricate and all the surgery is millimetres. Although the surgery can be completed faster, it is not possible to complete the same amount in lesser time.

Do I need to go to hospital?

Blepharoplasty is commonly completed in a general hospital with other surgical procedures. Although this is the norm, it does not lead to the optimal patient experience as the staff are not specialised. Dr De Silva has built a custom state of the art facility on Harley Street to enable complete specialisation for every patient. This can avoid feared issues with general hospitals such as MRSA and hospital acquired infection.

Office. Clinic Reception scaled

An alternative to general anaesthesia?

Dr De Silva and his team have developed a specialised form of advanced sedation anaesthesia for our patients. This technique is safer that general anaesthesia, with a faster recovery and avoids the side effects associated with general anaesthesia. The recovery after eyelid surgery with this twilight sedation technique is usually thirty minutes and all patients are able to leave the facility within one hour after surgery. Approximately twenty percent of all our patients have undergone previous general anaesthesia and they overwhelmingly prefer the experience of twilight sedation anaesthesia.

At what age should you get Blepharoplasty?

Although loose skin, puffiness and lines around the eyelids are commonly associated with facial ageing, there are a smaller proportion of patients who have a genetic predisposition to these changes. Lower eyelid bags or puffiness may be present in late teenage and early twenties and can be seen in other family members. The treatment of lower eyelid bags in young adults with negative vector requires specific techniques to support the lower eyelid after blepharoplasty, this is essential to avoid lower eyelid retraction. Dr De Silva has had patients travel long distances for opinions for lower eyelid bags, who have been refused surgery by local surgeons. Please note lower blepharoplasty is not always indicated if you have very early signs of lower eyelid bags and some patients can be managed with non-surgical techniques.

There is no specific age limit for blepharoplasty and Dr De Silva has completed surgery for patient in their late eighties. Key to a successful blepharoplasty is your general health and fitness. We complete a comprehensive assessment of every patients before surgery as safety is always the number one priority. Often there may be additional factors to consider with increasing age, these can include dry eyes, eyelid laxity and droopy eyelids (termed ptosis), these may require additional treatments at the same time as blepharoplasty to ensure a successful result.

By EL, Lower Blepharoplasty with fat transfer, laser and milia removal on May 19, 2020

I had lower eye blepharoplasty, with fat transfer, laser resurfacing and milia removal. I had researched and wanted the surgery for about 2 years before deciding to have some consultations I had two consultations with a well known surgery group but did not feel confident. I then met with Dr. De Silva and knew as soon as the consultation was over that I felt confident enough to go ahead and am so glad that I did. My pre treatment appointments and advice were so thorough, and any questions that I had were answered so quickly by the clinics staff. The day of my surgery was seamless, and I felt in completely safe hands the entire time from the nurse Ellie, to the Dr performing sedation and Dr De Silva. The follow up appointments were really thorough and no question too small. I am really pleased with the results and am so glad I had the surgery with Dr De Silva. If you are considering surgery I would highly recommend visiting Dr De Silva. Thank you so much.

By Upper & lower blepharoplasty Jan 1, 2020

I recently underwent an upper & lower Blepharoplasty with Dr DeSilva and the results are outstanding! From my very first consultation and after lots of research, I knew that I had made the right decision to go with Dr DeSilva. Naturally I was nervous but his amazing team were all very kind, extremely friendly and totally relaxed. The procedure was carried out under sedation and that too was fantastic. I can honestly say I felt no pain during and after the procedure and within 1 hour afterwards I was on my way home. I would 100% fully recommend Dr DeSilva to anybody considering a procedure such as mine. Thank you Dr DeSilva, you have instilled a new found confidence in me.

Lower Blepharoplasty Dec 25, 2019

I had lower blepharoplasty surgery as I had a lot of wrinkles in my lower eyelids. I have big eyes so the wrinkles were very obvious and only being in my mid-thirty’s I felt it aged me. The surgery was only an hour long and Dr Julian and his team were all really nice and caring. I am extremely happy with the results and my eyes look so much better! The wrinkles are hardly there and I actually like how my eyes look in photos now! I definitely recommend Dr Julian and his team.

What happens during consultation?

When you attend a consultation, the surgeon will take a detailed medical history and examination of your eyelids. As a specialist in all facial plastic procedures, Dr De Silva will look at your face as a whole as all parts of the face lie in relative balance. Dr De Silva requests patients bring older photographs to ensure that surgery is planned to suit your individual facial characteristics and ageing.

A detailed examination of the eye and eyelids and your face is important. If there is drooping of the brows or eyelids, this will be taken into consideration and a brow lift or ptosis surgery may be indicated. Other important factors are dry yes, previous laser refractive surgery and the use of eye drops. A discussion of your goals and expectations of any prospective surgery. For some patients, Dr De Silva may advise against surgery and non-surgical treatments if in a patient’s best interest.

Dr De Silva and his nursing team sees all patients a second time before surgery to discuss your procedure in further detail, inform patients of measures you can take to enhance recovery and provide detail regarding the recovery period. We recommend that you write a list of questions to ensure that you have covered all of your concerns.

What complications can occur?

Blepharoplasty, particularly of the eyelids is demanding and requires in depth knowledge of the anatomy and attention to detail. One of the most important factors responsible for the success of surgery is the surgeon. In Dr De Silva’s hands complications are uncommon, swelling and bruising are the most common aspects of recovery. Pain or discomfort is uncommon and resolves within 24-hours. Infection is very rare, and the gold standard is prophylactic antibiotics to protect against infection. Dr De Silva avoids the side effects of general anaesthetic (deep vein thrombosis and allergies) by using safer sedation anaesthesia. Two rare and serious complications are eyelid retraction and damage to vision. Dr De Silva has never had a patient of his own have these complications however takes multiple levels of precautions to avoid these issues in the first place. The eyelids have an intricate anatomy of millimetres, an oculo-plastic surgeon specialising in this area of the face is best suited to ensure a smooth journey and successful result.

How long will it last?

Although there are individual factors that influence duration, most eyelid surgery will last eight to ten years, and for lower eyelid blepharoplasty one surgery may be adequate for their lifetime. Dr De Silva often utilises additional techniques including regenerative medicine, fat transfer, laser resurfacing. These techniques enhance the duration of the result.

How do I choose an eyelid surgeon?

Choosing the surgeon for your eyelid surgery is one of the most important decisions you will make. Key considerations in this choice:


An important choice in selecting the right surgeon is to look for a specialist in facial cosmetic surgery. As our understanding of the human body has evolved, surgeons have become more specialised it is difficult for a general plastic surgery to have knowledge in all parts of the body. Dr De Silva is a World-renowned specialist oculo-facial plastic surgeon who focuses only on the face and has an extensive background of experience to give you a safe and successful outcome.

Cosmetic focus

Cosmetic surgery is a different branch of medicine to reconstructive plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgery focuses on natural rejuvenation hiding scars and discretion. Reconstructive surgery including blepharospasm and water eyes. Although Dr De Silva trained at hospitals including Moorfields he went onto complete specialised cosmetic experience in Los Angeles and New York.

Detail orientated person

The eyelids are a surgery of millimetres as less that 1-millimetre difference between the two eyes can be seen. Seeing a surgeon who specialises in the entire face is important, as the eyes exist in balance with the lower half of the face. Eyelid surgery can be completed with 20minutes however the result will not be the same as a surgeon who completes the surgery in one and half hours

Revision surgery

Unfortunately, eyelid surgery can be completed incorrectly and require revision surgeon. Select a surgeon specialising in this surgery. Dr De Silva treats revision blepharoplasty patients from all over the world.


No two people have the same eyes. The best surgeons are also artists who are able to modify their technique to give every patient the best possible result. Dr De Silva is an artist and sculpture and uses his knowledge of the human face for each individual patient.

Medical Facility

Chose to have surgery in a facility that does not treat the entire body or general surgery to avoid hospital acquired issues such as infections. Dr De Silva completes surgery in a World Class facility that was custom built for facial cosmetic surgery.


It is key that you feel comfortable with the surgeon and that they will be there for you after the procedure.

Will I have visible scars?

Key with eyelid surgery is minimizing scars. Older eyelid surgery techniques resulted in unsatisfactory scars around the eyelids. With modern techniques scars can largely camouflaged on the inside of the eyelids or natural creases. Dr De Silva uses advanced, scar-less techniques including the hidden incision on the inner side of the lower lid (trans-conjunctival).

blepharoplasty, surgery techniques

Can blepharoplasty be combined with other techniques?

Dr De Silva frequently combines blepharoplasty with other facial procedures to give a natural looking result and avoid the use of scars associated with conventional techniques:

Middle third of the face:

  • Volume augmentation of the cheeks with fillers, fat transfer or facial implants.
  • Fat-transfer to the mid-face and cheeks (Fat Transfer)
  • Skin resurfacing for lines & deep wrinkles (Skin Resurfacing)
  • Anti-wrinkle injections for fine lines at the junction of the eyebrows, forehead and crow’s feet

Upper third of the face:

  • Minimal incision brow lift (Brow & Forehead Lift)
  • Correction of droopy eyelid (Ptosis Correction)
  • Anti-wrinkle injections for fine lines at the junction of the eyebrows, forehead

Lower third of the face:

  • Face or neck lift procedure (Facelift)
  • Augmentation of the chin (Chin Implant)

Is there a non-surgical alternative to blepharoplasty?

Patients may present with a mild shadow or depression that appears beneath the lower eyelid; this is often termed the tear trough. This appearance can give a tired appearance to the patients and can be related to genetics and present from late teens. As we get older, this area alters in appearance, by becoming more hollowed, darker, deeper and less revitalised. In some people depressions a non-surgical filler treatment is a popular solution for early treatment of these changes to the tear trough. The treatment involves carefully injecting a gel-like substance into specific areas around the eyes, with the objective of softening deep wrinkles and lines. For patients with mild change this can be an effective treatment with instant results. The treatment is a delicate and should be completed by a specialist as complications can occur

non-surgical alternative to blepharoplasty, female model

Dr De Silva has customised a state-of-the-art no needle technique, this focuses on the use of a blunt cannula to provide the treatment, this minimises bruising and swelling to less than 5% of patients.

Infection is rare after filler treatment, care is required with hygiene and cleaning the skin before the procedure that avoids these issues.

Upper eyelid non-surgical treatments include the use of skin lasers and plasma machines to tighten the skin. These are generally of limited effectiveness and most patients achieve a modest improvement. Although these avoid surgery they may improve the eyelid from five to twenty percent. Unless mild symptoms only, Dr De Silva advises against these techniques.

Before and After Upper eyelid non-surgical treatments - female patient

Tear trough filler can be completed to reduce hollowing and a shadow beneath the eyelid in younger patients with mild to moderate changes. Technique is important as with our use of a No-Needle Cannula technique, this speeds up recovery as 95% of patients have no bruising.

Am I too young to have lower blepharoplasty?

Dr De Silva sees many younger patients with lower eyelid puffiness and bags as a consequence of genetics. Many of these patients have other family members with similar changes. Of key importance is a modern surgical technique, hiding the scars on the inside of the eyelid, utilising laser to tighten the skin without a scar and the use of fat transfer to ensure a long-lasting natural result. Dr De Silva previously wrote book chapters on why younger patients develop eyelid bags as a consequence of anatomy termed negative vector. Dr De Silva completes lower eyelid blepharoplasty on patients from their late teens to twenties and some patients travel long distances as local surgeons have not been able to complete surgery locally.
