A distinctive indicator of facial ageing includes excess skin on the upper eyelids and the presence of bags beneath the lower eyelids. When undergoing Facial Feminisation Surgery, it is typical to address these issues concurrently through a procedure known as "blepharoplasty" to correct sagging eyelids and eliminate eye bags. 

What Is Eyelid Surgery / Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a specialised plastic surgery procedure offered at Dr Veerle Rotsaert’s clinic in Belgravia, London. This procedure focuses on rejuvenating the delicate tissues of the upper and lower eyelids, which often show signs of ageing earlier than other areas of the face. By addressing issues such as sagging skin, wrinkles, and drooping eyelids, eyelid surgery can help you achieve a refreshed and more youthful appearance.

During the procedure, loose skin and, in some cases, excess fat are surgically removed from the eyelids, resulting in a more open and wide-awake look. The aim is to eliminate the tired and aged appearance that can make you constantly look fatigued, impacting your confidence and self-esteem. Eyelid surgery can also make the application of makeup easier and enhance your overall facial harmony.

A blepharoplasty can remove the effects of years of damage due to:

  • Ageing
  • Stress
  • Gravity
  • Sun exposure
  • Smoking

Reasons why one might consider blepharoplasty:

  • If your eyelids are drooping to the extend that it affects your vision.
  • Puffy bags under the eyes and loose and baggy eyelids which lead to having a tired and older appearance.
  • Excessive wrinkles on upper or lower eyelids.

Things You Should Know Before Your Eyelid Surgery / Blepharoplasty Procedure In London

  1. Pre-procedure Preparation: Prior to your eyelid surgery with Dr Veerle Rotsaert, it is essential to prepare yourself physically and mentally. You may be advised to avoid certain medications or supplements that can increase bleeding, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or herbal supplements. It is also important to arrange for someone to accompany you to the clinic on the day of the procedure and assist you afterward if needed. Dr Rotsaert will provide you with specific instructions tailored to your unique situation during your pre-operative consultation.

  2. Risks and Potential Complications: Like any surgical procedure, eyelid surgery carries some inherent risks. Dr Veerle Rotsaert will thoroughly discuss these potential complications with you during your consultation. These risks may include temporary swelling, bruising, dry eyes, infection, scarring, or temporary blurred vision. Dr Rotsaert will explain the measures taken to minimise these risks and will address any concerns you may have, ensuring you are well-informed and confident about your decision to proceed.

  3. Pre-procedure Instructions: In order to achieve optimal results from your eyelid surgery, there are certain pre-procedure instructions that Dr Rotsaert will provide. These instructions may include avoiding smoking and alcohol consumption leading up to the surgery, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and following a balanced diet. Dr Rotsaert may also recommend applying a prescribed ointment to the eyelid area prior to the procedure to ensure the skin is in the best possible condition.

  4. Preparing for Recovery: Understanding what to expect during the recovery period is crucial for a smooth healing process. Dr Veerle Rotsaert will guide you through the recovery instructions, which may involve applying cold compresses to reduce swelling, keeping your head elevated while resting, and taking prescribed medications as directed. It is important to arrange for someone to help you with daily activities during the initial days of recovery and to follow Dr Rotsaert’s recommendations for post-operative care to achieve the best possible results.

  5. Questions to Ask: To ensure that you are fully informed and confident about your eyelid surgery, here are some questions you may consider asking Dr Veerle Rotsaert:

  • What are the potential risks and complications associated with eyelid surgery?
  • How long is the recovery period, and what can I expect during this time?
  • Can you show me before and after photos of previous patients who have undergone eyelid surgery?
  • What type of anesthesia will be used during the procedure?
  • How many eyelid surgeries have you performed, and what is your success rate?

What Kind of Anaesthesia is Used?

For eyelid surgery, the type of anaesthesia used will be determined based on your unique situation and the extent of the procedure. Dr Veerle Rotsaert may recommend either local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia. Local anaesthesia with sedation allows you to be relaxed and comfortable during the surgery while ensuring a pain-free experience. General anaesthesia, on the other hand, will render you completely unconscious throughout the procedure.

Dr Rotsaert will discuss the pros and cons of each option with you, taking into account factors such as your medical history, personal preferences, and the complexity of your surgery. Rest assured that your safety and comfort are of utmost importance, and the most suitable anaesthesia method will be chosen to ensure a smooth and successful procedure.

How Long Does Eyelid Surgery / Blepharoplasty Takes?

The duration of eyelid surgery can vary depending on the extent of the procedure and whether both upper and lower eyelids are involved. Typically, the surgery takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete. Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with a more accurate time estimate during your consultation, after assessing your unique situation and discussing your specific goals.

It’s important to note that while the surgery itself may not take long, you should plan for additional time spent at the clinic for pre-operative preparations and post-operative monitoring. Dr Rotsaert and her dedicated team will guide you through the entire process, ensuring your comfort and providing the necessary care and attention.
