Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a common cosmetic procedure that can rejuvenate your appearance.

We are currently seeking Models for this treatment on the 8th of June. Please see form at the end of the page.

Some patients may be reluctant to undergo surgery, and there has been an evolution of technology termed Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty that utilises non-surgical techniques to tighten the skin around your eyelids, reducing overhang and droopiness.  One of these procedures is Plasmage.
Plasmage is able generate Plasma energy through an electric discharge that starts when the accurate tip is close to the skin, but never actually touching it. This process heats the skin and creates increased collagen formation at that point. The skin due to the extra collagen development contracts over time, restoring the tightness and tautness to the targeted area (above and below the eye area). The resulting tissue retraction and tightening smooths out the skin, reducing the excess skin, fine lines, wrinkles for a smoother, healthier and more youthful appearance

What are the advantages of a Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?

The benefit of this technique is that it avoids surgery, no surgery is rapid recovery of the procedure and minimal risk of the procedure and quick recovery:

  • The most benefit is for patients with relatively mild skin laxity without other signs of facial ageing
  • The treatment is faster than surgery and can be completed in less than 30-60 minutes
  • Relatively fast recovery with minor swelling and bruising that fades over 1-2 weeks
  • Patients can resume most daily activities after 1-week, there is however some recovery from these non-surgical techniques

What are the dis-advantages of a Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?

  • The limitation of the technique is that it is solely dependent on tightening the skin, hence other characteristics changes with your eyelids including swelling caused by fat prolapse are not improved by the technique and may look work
  • The recovery is 1-2 weeks as the skin will peel and darken, and fresher skin will need time to come through. Although described as a non-surgical technique the recovery is like upper blepharoplasty. Patients can resume most daily activities 1-week after Upper Blepharoplasty
  • The technique can lead to scarring in the skin and is not appropriate for specific skin types – Fitzpatrick skin type 4 and above.
  • The technique does not allow personalised rejuvenation to give a natural appearance as the technique is a standard one tool solution for everyone
  • The long-term effects of some non-surgical blepharoplasty techniques are not known, the scars may make future surgery more challenging

 

 

 

Treatment
Your treatment appointment/s will be approximately 30-60 minutes per treatment session. Local anaesthesia is used to numb the area in preparation for treatment. During the treatment you may feel a warming and stinging sensation in the treated areas. Before and after photographs will be taken of the area being treated.

How many treatments will I need?

If either just upper eye area or just lower eye area is being treated, the treatment may be completed in one session, this will depend upon a number of factors and your physician will discuss this with you although it could be up to 2-3 treatment sessions to get the desired outcome. If both upper and lower eye areas are required to be treated, it is very likely this will need to be covered over 2-3 sessions, again your physician will advise the optimum number of treatments for you.

When will I see results?

You will NOT see immediate results. The earliest you will see results is approximately 7 days after the treatment and the treated areas will continue to improve for 3 months following your Plasmage treatment – so please be patient and this one of the reasons photographs are taken prior to treatment and at varying stages to monitor the outcome effectively.

How long will they last?

The results will last up to 2 years. After this period Plasmage treatment can simply be repeated if desired.

Aftercare

You will need to keep the treated area clean. You will be recommended an aftercare programme to be followed for approximately 7 -10 days. The aftercare programme is very important to promote healing and optimise your treatment results. You will also need to protect your eye area from sun exposure until all of the redness has settled down post your treatment. Your physician will take you through this in detail.

Post Treatment

Majority of patients can carry on their normal daily activities directly following the procedure. Although there can be minor discomfort for up to 7 days along with brown marks that have the appearance of scabbing, after around 5 days these will fall off revealing new skin beneath, some swelling may also be seen. A follow up appointment will also be booked approximately 1-2 weeks following the procedure.

Is it painful?

Because anaesthetic cream is applied to the area to be treated, the prick from the needle is minimal, with only a brief tingly sensation. Recovery is entirely pain-free. Swelling may occur on the treated area but will disappear in 2-3 days. You can then return to all your regular daily activities..
