The most visible signs of ageing tend to take place on our face, specifically around the eyes. Many men and women report that these signs of ageing can impact on both their personal and professional lives. Dark circles or bags under the eyes, excessive skin or wrinkles surrounding the eyelids can create a puffy and tired appearance. While of of these  occur as a natural part of ageing, it can be particularly prominent in males.

Eyelid surgery (known as a blepharoplasty) is a procedure that can reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes as well as removing excess wrinkled skin. This popular procedure can also correct drooping upper eyelids, the puffy bags above and below the eyes, extra upper-eyelid skin, and hanging, lower eyelid skin.

What is eyelid surgery?

Dr Gahankari typically performs a blepharoplasty procedure (sometimes called a “bleph”) using local or general anaesthesia. Dr Gahankari will assess and mark the excess eyelid skin before the surgery. The incisions are made within the natural creases of the eyelids, to ensure that scarring is kept to a minimum. The excess skin and muscle are then removed along with any fat bulges. He will then suture the incisions with very fine sutures. In the case of lower eyelids, any excess skin and fat is removed conservatively to prevent any pull on the lower eyelid. In lower eyelids the scars are located just below the eyelash margin so that they are minimally visible. In some instances, laser technology may be used to smooth the lower eyelid areas. Eyelid surgery may also include anti-aging injectables to reduce the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles.
