NON-SURGICAL BLEPHAROPLASTY OR EYELID LIFT

A non-surgical laser eye lift is one of the most effective non-invasive skin treatments to address loose skin or excess skin. With time, age and gravity, eyelids become droopy, producing a tired appearance. Puffy bags develop below the eyelids adding to the tired look. A surgical blepharoplasty has been used for decades by surgeons. However prolonged recovery, bruising and swelling can be off putting for busy people and those with demanding careers. The advent of laser eye lifting in the 1990’s has been a significant advance with shorter recovery, minimal swelling, bruising and discomfort. All procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, reducing the costs substantially.

However, there are certain criteria for you to be eligible for a non-surgical blepharoplasty. Some of these include:

  • People above the age of 30 looking for a quick fix to early signs of aging
  • People in relatively good health
  • People having mild concerns around the eyes

If you fall under any of the below categories, non-surgical blepharoplasty is not the treatment for you:

  • People with excessive signs of aging around the eyes
  • Women who are pregnant or nursing
  • People who want lasting and significant effects

During Laser eye lifting, a carbon dioxide laser beam is used to remove excess skin, fine lines and fat on the upper eyelid, to recreate the upper eyelid crease, and give the eyes a more alert appearance. Using the laser makes this removal bloodless, so the procedure can be performed more accurately. The eye itself is protected with a laser eye shield during the entire procedure. The bags under the eyelid are removed though a small laser cut on the inside of the eyelid, without removing any skin. If there is some loose or wrinkled skin on the eyelid, the skin is resurfaced with either laser or Plasma treatment PSR to “shrink” the skin. This prevents “pulling down” of the lower eyelid or change to the eye shape and encourage new collagen.

There are risks associated with all procedures. These include:

  1.   Bruising and swelling
  2.   Too much or too little skin or fat removal
  3.   Visible scar on upper eyelid
  4.   Dry eyes
  5.   Blurred vision
  6.   Pigmentation of skin
  7.   Infection
  8.   Asymmetry
  9.   Not getting the expected result

You will need a consultation with the doctor to see whether you are suitable for this treatment.

Before your non-surgical blepharoplasty, you must make lifestyle changes suggested by your practitioner. Taking medications that increase bleeding must be avoided. This will reduce the chances of bruising.

The treatment will take about 30 minutes to an hour and a half, during which you may feel discomfort at the area being treated. However, the specialist carrying out the procedure and the high-grade equipment we use will make sure the procedure is safe and carried out quickly and efficiently.

Once the non-surgical blepharoplasty has been conducted, you may notice some swelling on or around the treated area. During the 12 hours immediately after the treatment, you may need to be careful to avoid any chances of infection. The area should be kept clean throughout.

You will receive a detailed guide that outlines everything that should be done for a quick recovery. Picking on scabs or loose skin should be avoided to keep the area from scarring.

After laser eye lifting, you will need to go home and rest. You will need to sleep on 2-3 pillows at night. You will need to avoid any vigorous activity, heavy lifting or bending for 1 week after the procedure. You will be given antibiotic tablets, anti-swelling tablets, and eye drops to use as per instructions.

There is usually little or no pain after laser eye lifting. Your eyes may feel dry and gritty for a few days and your eyelids may feel tighter due to the tissue retraction and tightening.

The improvement with laser eye lifting can last for up to 10 years, but this does vary from person to person.

If you are having the upper eyelids lifted, you will have some small stitches in the skin, which are removed after 1 week. The lower eyelids do not require stitches so the recovery time may be faster with fewer days off work.

Laser eye lifting takes about 1 ½ hours.

It is not necessary to have a general anaesthetic.  During the procedure you will be lightly sedated, so you are not aware and will not feel pain. Local anaesthetic is used to make the area numb.

No. laser eye lifting is performed on an outpatient basis. However, you will not be able to drive home the same day, so someone will need to pick you up from the clinic.

The cost of treatment for a non-surgical blepharoplasty will depend on the number of sessions as well the individual patient’s needs. A consultation with our experts can help determine the cost of treatment in your case. For those who are worried about the cost, we also offer other modes of payment that allow you to make payments at your convenience.
