Eyelid surgery, or “blepharoplasty,” is more than a cosmetic procedure: it’s a way to rejuvenate your appearance. Are you tired of looking tired? Or you may seem stressed or angry from these wrinkles, loose skin, and sagging muscles around your eyes. But with eyelid surgery, you can look as young and vibrant as you feel!
How much does eyelid surgery cost?
For upper lids only, prices start as low as R14,450.
For lower lids only, prices start at R18,650.
Finally, for all 4 lids, prices start at R29,350.
These prices include the hospital, anaesthetist, and surgeon fees, but exclude VAT.
Are You a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Do you experience any of the these? “Hooding” in the upper eyelids, where loose skin droops into your line of sight? Or loose and excess skin around the eye contours? Maybe even puffy or baggy lower eyelids?
If so, eyelid surgery might be the solution for you. Indeed, it’s a powerful way to enhance your appearance. But remember, it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution! This is why we recommend that you book a consult with Dr. Chetty-B. This way, she will assess if it’s the best facial plastic surgery for you.
Also, your must understand that the procedure is only intended to refresh your upper face. If you want improvements in the lower face, you may need a facelift or neck lift.
How Eyelid Surgery Works
Since blepharoplasty is a tailored procedure, it can address the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Here’s how Dr. Chetty-B will proceed:
- She will make incisions along the natural contour of your eyelid crease or lower lash line.
- In upper eyelid surgery, she will remove excess skin and tighten drooping muscles.
- In lower eyelid surgery, she will extract or reposition protruding fat to reduce puffiness.
- She will then close all incisions with sutures.
The result? A smooth eyelid contour and a more alert appearance.
Recovery from Eyelid Surgery: What to Expect
Recovery is a crucial part of the eyelid surgery process. Here’s what you can expect: initially, you may experience swelling or bruising around the eyelids, accompanied by some discomfort. Fortunately, this can be managed with cold compresses, ointments, and oral pain medication. Additionally, some eye protection, such as dark-tinted sunglasses, may be required during this period. Finally, you can typically return to work and engage in light activities after four to seven days, marking a successful recovery.
Also, do not forget that Dr. Chetty-B will guide you through the recovery process with detailed aftercare instructions.
