What type of anaesthesia is used?
Many patients are apprehensive about having general anaesthesia. Dr. De Silva has developed an advanced form of sedative anaesthesia, also known as “twilight anaesthesia,” which is combination of local and sedative medications. This sophisticated sedation uses tiny amounts of four to five sedation medications that cumulatively give a relaxing and safe experience avoid the risks and side effects of general anaesthesia. A much shorter recovery period than general anaesthesia, with most patients able to leave 30 to 60 minutes following the procedure. These are the most advanced sedation techniques available, and the optimal option for patients considering eyelid surgery.
Revision Ethnic Blepharoplasty
Ethnic blepharoplasty is regarded as a challenging aspect of eyelid surgery as the degree of detail is fine and aspects including asymmetry are often present. Over 30% of all Dr De Silva’s patients have undergoing previous surgery and are termed revision procedures. Although more challenging than primary surgery often with Dr De Silva’s advanced techniques the overall appearance and symmetry of the eyelids can be improved.
