Cosmetic surgery on the eyelids (blepharoplasty) aims to eliminate excess fat and skin that give the upper eyelid a sleepy look. Likewise, the intervention may serve to remove bags and superfluous skin from the lower lid. This type of procedure gives the patient a more youthful and rested look. Blepharoplasty is often combined with a face lift or other rejuvenating procedures.

Anaesthesia and hospitalization

Blepharoplasty may be performed either under general or local anaesthesia and lasts about one hour and fifteen minutes. This operation is normally carried out in a day hospital. The hospital stay usually consists of a few hours of observation before being discharged and returning home.


Dressings must be changed the day following the operation. Swelling tends to disappear in about a week, while bruises will take two to three weeks to disappear. Sutures are removed after three days. After eight days, eventual bruises may be covered with make-up.
