Fix drooping eyelids and sagging around the eye with eye lift and eyelid day surgery in Caringbah and Bankstown.
Sagging and drooping around the eye area is a natural part of ageing, but that doesn’t mean that you have to live with it. At Lavida Cosmetic Medicine, we understand that how you look is important to you, so we offer several eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) procedures. We’ll discuss your needs and the results you want to achieve, and recommend a procedure that will give you the best results with the least amount of recovery time.
As well as for cosmetic reasons, eyelid surgery can also assist with vision problems. Removing excess skin from the upper eyelid in particular can help to open the eye and rectify discomfort and vision problems caused by extra weight on the eye.
Surgery around the eye area is straightforward and can normally be done under local anaesthetic. Our surgeon will make a small cut in the natural creases of the skin of the eyelid, then remove any excess fatty tissue and loose skin to rejuvenate the eye area.
