The surgery is performed using local anaesthesia +/- IV sedation, depending on your specific needs.
Dr. Harceaga will make incisions in the natural creases of the upper eyelid. The excess skin and fat are removed and the incision is closed. By performing the procedure this way, the scars are well hidden when the eyes are open.
In this procedure, an incision is made just below the lower lash line. Excess skin in the lower eyelid is removed using this incision, and fat will be redistributed to remove the appearance of puffiness and bags. At times, Dr. Harceaga may also make an incision that is hidden inside the lower eyelid, known as a transconjunctival incision, to correct lower eyelid conditions or to redistribute or remove any excessive fat.
If the doctor uses the transconjunctival approach there will be no visible incision. In many middle-aged individuals the lower eyelids are lax. If you have this condition, Dr. Harceaga may recommend tightening the lower eyelids in addition to removing excess skin and fat.
The procedure takes approximately two hours if both the upper and lower eyelids are completed at the same time. If complementary procedures are added, such as an eyebrow lift, it will change the amount of time the surgery will take.
You will see Dr. Harceaga the day after your surgery and at specified intervals during the weeks following your surgery. This is done so that the doctor can personally monitor your recovery process, and to ensure that you have the best results possible.
With most eyelid surgery procedures, patients experience fast and uncomplicated recoveries. Immediately after the surgery, you will have an ointment and paper tape strips applied to your eyelids to reduce swelling and discomfort. Cold compresses, icing and rest are also encouraged.
We recommend that patients use moisturizing eye drops during the first few days after surgery in order to reduce swelling. Some bruising and swelling around the eyes is common and to be expected following the procedure, and will last anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks.
To expedite recovery, patients should:
Most patients will take a week or so off work following the procedure.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
