Together with Dr. Steven Liew, a globally regarded specialist plastic surgeon, you can discuss your expectations and decide if a blepharoplasty is right for you.
Dr. Liew will consult with you, ensuring you know what to expect and helping you achieve the shape you desire for your eyes.

Eyelid surgery offers both functional and aesthetic benefits. It can enable you to regain clarity of vision if your lids have become droopy. Blepharoplasty is also known to be a long-lasting procedure for bringing out the inherent beauty of someone’s eyes.
Undergoing this procedure can help you achieve the following cosmetic benefits, which you can clearly see in our blepharoplasty before and after images.
- Enhanced contour of the eye
- Refreshed appearance and more youthful look
- Reduction to under eye bags and dark circles
- Softer look around the corners of the eyes and the lower eyelids
For those with sagging eyelids or loose skin around the eyes, eyelid surgery can also offer important functional benefits that impact your quality of life.
- Less discomfort in the forehead area from straining muscles around the eyelid
- Less irritation if your skin was rubbing together
- Expanded line of sight to support better vision
What to expect before and after eye lift surgery
As with any cosmetic procedure that affects your face, you’ll want to learn what to expect so you can mentally prepare. With both an upper or a lower blepharoplasty, the steps before and after are similar.
Before getting your eyelid surgery, you’ll have an in-depth consultation with Dr. Liew. This is an excellent time to ask questions, view before and after photos, and ensure you understand what’s involved.
You can also discuss any other needs you may have such as a brow lift to smooth out forehead wrinkles and support the effects of the blepharoplasty. This is also when you’ll learn any steps you should take in the days leading up to your procedure, as well as the day of, such as stopping certain medications and fasting before surgery.
Once the procedure is over, you can look forward to a brief recovery period and then enjoying life with your refreshed look. Right after the eye lift, you may notice some pain, bruising, or swelling, which can last for a few days or more. You may also notice that you’re more sensitive to light, but this is a temporary effect that will go away on its own.
As part of your self-care, be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to rest and relax. Dr. Liew and his team of specialist practitioners will talk to you about steps you can take to ensure you are comfortable, such as using cold packs to relieve swelling and taking pain medications. You’ll also learn how to care for your eyes by keeping them lubricated with eye drops and when you can resume wearing makeup.
As part of a healthy eye care routine, you can wear sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats to protect your eyes from sun exposure as well as the wind. It’s also always helpful to regularly sanitise makeup brushes to ensure all the beauty products you use around your eyes are clean.
