Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty) is a procedure to remove fat - usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes - features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. Eyelid surgery is performed under local anaesthesia, with sedation for a lower blepharoplasty, along with oral or intravenous sedatives. You'll be awake during the surgery, but relaxed and insensitive to pain as the area around your eyes will be numb Blepharoplasty usually takes one to three hours, depending on the extent of the surgery.
Your eyelids may feel tight and sore as the anaesthesia wears off, but you can control any discomfort with the medication prescribed by your surgeon. Most people feel ready to go out in public (and back to work) in a week to 10 days.
Healing is a gradual process, and your scars may remain slightly pink for six months or more after surgery. Eventually, though, they'll fade to a thin, nearly invisible white line. On the other hand, the positive results of your eyelid surgery - the more alert and youthful look will last for years. For many people these results are permanent.
Surgical correction of prominent ears is performed under local anaesthetic. The operation usually takes between one to two hours. You will be required to take a week to 10 days off work. The surgeon makes an incision just behind the ear in the natural fold where the ear meets the head. Cartilage and skin are then removed from the ear to achieve the desired effect. Finally, the surgeon stitches up the initial incision and then bandages the ears to protect them.
Some pain and discomfort will follow when the local anaesthetic wears off. This is usually well controlled using simple painkillers like Paracetamol. The ears may be red and sensitive after the surgery and take some time to settle. Once you've had ear surgery, the results are permanent - although because ear cartilage is very elastic, there is always some forward movement of the ears after the operation.
