Nowhere are the effects of ageing more prominent than around the eyes.
The delicate skin in this area often becomes loose, wrinkled and starts to sag, leaving you looking tired and adding years to your appearance.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, involves taking one or more actions towards restoring youthfulness around the eyes. These include:
- removing excess skin and fatty tissue to eliminate bags underneath the eye
- doing the same above the eye to remove the hood of skin
- smoothing the crow’s feet wrinkles at the corner of the eye
The effect of one or more of these surgeries is often a remarkably rejuvenated, younger appearance.

Considering eyelid surgery?
There are some common questions that many people who are considering eyelid surgery ask, such as:
Before beginning your surgery, Dr Hunt will mark his intended incision sites, following the natural lines and creases of your upper and lower eyelids. In some instances he may recommend working on your lower eyelid via tiny incision on the inside, which is known as transconjunctival blepharoplasty.
During surgery, Dr Hunt will remove any excess fat, skin and muscle from above and/or below the eye, before gluing the skin.
When you’re discharged, you’ll be given a prescription for pain medication and for an ointment to keep your eyes moist while you sleep.
