Is any special preparation needed before surgery?
You will discuss your medications with Dr. Harceaga during your initial consultation, and the doctor may have you stop taking certain medications prior to your surgery. Do not smoke for at least two weeks before the procedure, and at least two weeks after. Be sure to drink a lot of water in the days leading up to your surgery.
What happens in the operating room?
If you have upper eyelid surgery, the doctor will remove excessively stretched skin that can cause multiple wrinkles or hooding using an incision on the eyelash line. If there is an underlying droopiness of the lid, a muscle repair can be made. For lower eyelid surgery, Dr. Jugenburg will redistribute the fat within the lower eyelid, which removes the appearance of bags and under-eye puffiness.
What is Asian eyelid surgery?
Asian blepharoplasty is a type of eyelid surgery that creates a crease in the upper eyelid when the crease is absent. About 50% of Asians are born without an upper eyelid crease, and these men and women opt for this surgery to provide additional sharpness to the eye, creating an improved shape.
Is the eyelid surgery painful?
The eyelid surgery is not painful. Most patients can manage their pain following the procedure using over the counter medications.
What is the recovery process?
There will be some bruising and swelling after the surgery, which is managed with cold compresses or icing. The bruising and swelling will last for approximately 1 to 2 weeks. Keeping the head elevated and getting plenty of rest will help expedite the healing process. Patients usually return to work within 1 to 2 weeks after the surgery.
What about additional procedures?
The most common complementary procedure done with eyelid surgery is the eyebrow lift. This brow lift helps to minimize the creases that occur across the forehead, or those that appear high on the bridge of the nose. It also helps to reposition low or sagging eyebrows, helping to give the patient a more youthful appearance. You may also ask Dr. Harceaga about a face lift, “mini face lift” and other facial procedures.
Will I have scars?
Scarring will be minimal, and the scars usually disappear when the eyes are open. Depending on the type of blepharoplasty you have, the incision may be hidden inside the lower eyelid. This procedure, known as a transconjunctival incision, is used to correct lower eyelid conditions or to redistribute or remove any excessive fat.
How soon can I exercise after the surgery?
It is important to rest and avoid strenuous activities for the first several weeks following the surgery. Most patients are able to resume exercise three weeks after their procedure.
Is the result permanent?
The benefits of eyelid surgery will last indefinitely. Revision surgery for this procedure is very rare. Understand, however, that following your surgery your body will continue to age and so will the results of the surgery
Are any risks associated with eyelid surgery?
As with all cosmetic surgeries, there are some risks involved. These risks include bleeding, infection, swelling, scar irregularities and blood clots, but they are rare. Our operating suite is state-of-the-art, and we do everything we can to minimize the risks associated with surgery. Most importantly, Dr. Harceaga and his team have comprehensive safety protocols in place to prevent complications from occurring.

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! :)
