Eyelids Surgery

Our Clinical Practice in Eyelift Surgery

Eyelift surgery is done under local anesthetics with mild sedatives. The eyelift surgery usually takes 2-4 hours at the operating theatre in our clinic. Full payments must be made in full before the operation. We prefer cash payments in Thai baths.

During the initial consultation, you may be asked to look in a mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved. This will help us understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.

It is important for you to inform the plastic surgeon of your medical history. High blood pressure, thyroid problems or diabetes are among the medical conditions that may increase the risk associated with eyelid surgery. We also want to know whether you have allergies, especially when it affects your eyes. Moreover, you will be ask whether you have ever tried and wear contact lenses and that you should bring them with you in case we want to test your vision.

Get Educated in Blepharoplasty

The Surgery: Eyelid Surgery or blepharoplasty is a procedure that is performed to shape or modify the appearance of the eyelids. This procedure is frequently done at the same time as other procedures, such as upper eyelid blepharoplasty, facelift or forehead lift, and can be combined with laser or chemical resurfacing to smooth skin wrinkles. Eyelid correction can either be:

  • Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a procedure for treating skin laxity and eliminating excess deposits of fats and wrinkly skin beneath the eyes.
  • Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove protruding or excessive orbital fat that creates a double fold of the upper eyelids.
  • Lower & Upper Blepharoplasties can make a remarkable difference in the appearance of the face, alleviating the appearance of tiredness and old age. Your eyes appear fresher and more youthful.
