Upper eyelid blepharoplasty

Cosmetic or aesthetic eye surgery can be performed to improve the signs of ageing around the eye region. It can also alleviate feelings of heaviness and strain for some people. Cosmetic eye surgery can be one of the most effective ways of rejuvenating the face. It can make one look and feel younger and remove tired saggy skin or puffiness around the eyes. This procedure is customized for individual patients. A planned consultation is important to discuss your desired appearance.


Cosmetic is usually performed under local anaesthesia as an outpatient. Some patients may choose to have a light sedation throughout the procedure. Light sedation may be used for more extensive procedures like lower eyelid blepharoplasty. The surgical technique may vary depending on the underlying condition. In most cases, your doctor will determine the best method of achieve the results you want.

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty

Surgery for getting rid of lower eyelid eyebags can be performed in two ways: Trans-conjunctival approach (incision from inside if eyelid) and subcillary approach (where incision is made just below the eyelashes through the eyelid skin). The trans-conjunctival approach works well for patients who doesn’t have loose or excess skin and just wants to get rid of their eyelid bags. The surgery can be combined with other treatments to maximise its effect.


The lower eyelid is one of the most complicated area of the face and in close proximity to the eye. The eyelid anatomy is complex and functions to protect the eyeball. It is important to ensure the surgeon performing your surgery has detailed knowledge and experience in performing surgeries around the eyelid. As an Ophthalmologist and fellowship trained Oculoplastic surgeon, I have a detailed understanding of the anatomy of the eyelid and its role in protecting the eyeball.


In my experience, transconjunctival approach works well for younger patients who have lower lid eye bags in the absence of excess skin. The procedure takes about 30-60mins and the recovery is relatively quick as there are no incisions on the skin or stitches. Usually, patients can resume normal activities and work relatively soon after the procedure.

Have you ever noticed a small tender red lump on your eyelid? A chalazion often presents as a small lump or swelling on the eyelid. They result when (meibomian) glands of the eyelid become blocked. Some patients are more prone to getting these than others and it can develop on either the upper or lower eyelid.


Condition such as acne, rosacea, blepharitis or any long-term inflammation of the eyelid are risk factors for blepharitis.


Chalazion can be diagnosed by direct examination of the eyelid. During the examination I will look beneath the eyelid to assess the extent of the chalazion. In additional I will also assess whether your eyelids have other associated conditions such as blepharitis, dry eye, rosacea which can often go hand in hand with chalazia. While most these may eventually resolve on their own, some may last weeks to months. Proper treatment will often shorten the episode.


There are different ways of treating chalazia. These may include, warm compresses, topical antibiotic drops and oral antibiotics. Other more invasive treatments like steroid injections or surgical drainage can also be done depending on the clinical presentation. These small procedures can safely be done in the clinic.


If you are suffering these symptoms, give us a call in Sydney CBD Eye Clinic or leave us an email to book in and have it assessed.
