An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. It involves removing excess skin, fat and muscle from the eyelid to create a more youthful and refreshed look. The procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on the patient’s needs and goals. The procedure can help correct signs of aging and the “tired look” of drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags below the eyes.

What can you expect during the consultation?

During your initial consultation, Dr Ujwal Chirde will discuss with you about your expectation and goals. Will also explain in detail about the treatment plan that best delivers your desired outcome. An upper and/or lower blepharoplasty can be performed as an individual procedure or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures like browlift, facelift.

How is the Blepharoplasty/Eyelid surgery performed?

An upper blepharoplasty can be performed under local anaesthesia. The incision will be placed within the crease of your eye so that any scar will be hidden. The procedure involves removal of strip of skin, muscle and excess fat. Incision will be closed with the suture which is removed after 5-7 days following surgery.

In lower blepharoplasty incision will be underneath the lower eyelash margin or on the undersurface of lower eyelid. Fat in the lower eyelid will be removed to create a smooth transition from eye to the cheek. Skin sutures will be removed on 5-7 days post-surgery.


Hooded eyelid can be a result of excess skin at the upper eyelid. An upper blepharoplasty is a procedure that removes the excess skin, fat from the upper eyelid.
The incision for the surgery is made along the natural skin creases which keep the scar, if any, well concealed within the crease of the eyelid. It is important to note that every patient is different, but these scars typically heal quite well.
The blepharoplasty is an anatomical correction of droopy eyelid. The results thus achieved are usually long lasting.
Removing large amount of fat around the eyes was a standard procedure many years back. We at Athera follows the most recent technique of blepharoplasty which avoids hollowing and gives more natural looking eyes.
You can see the blepharoplasty results immediately after surgery. The majority of patients are fully healed by about 3 months after surgery, the results are therefore most evident by 3 to 6 months post-surgery.
Some swelling around the eye is expected after the surgery, which settles in 5-7 days. The patients are usually advised rest for one week following surgery.
