Eyelid Surgery

Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can have a transformative effect on a face. Whether you want to reduce sagging eye bags, correct discomfort, improve your vision or enjoy a more youthful appearance, eyelid surgery could really help.

What to expect

From ageing, to lifestyle, to genetics, many things can have an impact on the appearance of our eyes over time. Things which can also lead to vision issues or dent our self-esteem.

At The Avoca Clinic we offer both upper and lower eyelid surgery, which offer incredible benefits:

  • Reduced under eye bags
  • Expanded line of sight for improved vision
  • Enhanced eye shape
  • A more youthful, rested appearance
  • Lifted sagging eyelid skin
  • Fewer fine lines on outer corners

Your Questions Answered

Any one or a combination of the following conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery:


Excess skin hanging down to obscure the natural fold of the upper eyelids or perhaps impair vision.

Puffy appearance of the upper eyelids making the eyes look tired]

Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelids often with a depression on the bony border of the lower eyelid

Droopiness of the lower eyelids showing while below the iris (the coloured portion of the eye)

Eyelid surgery can usually correct these problems though other treatments may also be discussed at your consultation.


If your upper eyelid condition is accompanied by saggy eyebrows, then an eyebrow or forehead lift may be recommended.  Smoothing of deep creases on the outside of your eyes may require skin resurfacing techniques or injectables.


Treating the dark circles beneath the eyes is difficult but some bleaching  solutions can work.


These are all things you can discuss at your consultation.

Recovery time varies from patient to patient, but a recent survey we carried out showed that most people will be back at work within 7-10 working days following this procedure.

Your stitches are usually removed 1 week later. You will be required to diligently follow the discharge instructions from the clinic as your participation in our aftercare programme is absolutely necessary.

We perform this surgery under both local and general anaesthetic which the surgeon will discuss with you at your complimentary consultation.

The procedure takes approx 1 hour and is usually a daycare procedure.
