Blepharoplasty (Eye Lift / Eyelid Rejuvenation)

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to remove fat, excess skin, and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. One of the safest, and most commonly performed, oculoplastic surgeries, it is also used to correct drooping upper lids and puffy undereye bags.

Dacrocystorhinostomy (Surgery for Watery Eye)

Watery eye is a very common condition which results from either an over production of tears, or reduced drainage of tears. Watery Eye can be a very distressing condition for those who suffer from it, as the constant tearing from their eyes can make others think they are weeping.

Ptosis (Droopy Eye / Drooping Eyelids)

This is when the upper eyelid droops over the eye, in some cases blocking the upper field of vision, and on a cosmetic level it can detract from a person’s appearance and make them appear ‘sleepy’.

Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that may reduce your vision. The structure of the lens also changes as the cataract develops. There are different types of cataract, but the two main types are Age-related and Congenital cataracts. Congenital cataracts, those that have been present from birth, are uncommon but it is vital to diagnose these early, as otherwise the eye may not learn to see which could lead to blindness, even if the cataracts are removed later in life.

Browlift

A forehead lift, or browlift, is used to create a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above your eyes. During the process, your forehead may be smoothed, eyebrows raised and frown lines lessened. This is done through either removing or altering the muscles and tissues that have caused aging to the face and will result in smoother skin and a more animated appearance.
