Laser Bright Blepharoplasty
Combining the first-class skills of our oculoplastic surgeons with their expertise in laser innovations for a complete eyelid rejuvenation package – with only 1 week of downtime!
Introducing the Laser Bright Blepharoplasty: a unique combination of surgical and laser procedures for comprehensive periocular rejuvenation. Exclusively at The Clinic Holland Park, West London.
This is a combination procedure that involves a surgical upper-lid blepharoplasty and a non-surgical, lower-lid blepharoplasty with our Sciton® Erbium laser. So, while you will have stitches on your upper lids (which will vanish into your new eyelid crease), there will be no cutting or stitches on your lower lids.
While upper-lid blepharoplasty is relatively uncomplicated for the majority of clients, not everybody is suitable for lower-lid surgery. Many clients want rejuvenation in the lower-lid area, but are not suitable for lower-lid blepharoplasties because they do not have enough fat in the area to be excised. However, for these clients a laser procedure would be ideal; and our Sciton® Erbium laser is an effective and safe option for lift and skin-tightening in the lower lid area when surgery is neither needed nor an option.
In addition, while surgical blepharoplasty can adequately address excess skin, orbital fat prolapse and ptosis, surgery does not address issues such as skin laxity, texture, fine lines, and pigmentation. However, these facets can be improved with Erbium profractional laser resurfacing. Therefore, combining both treatments (surgery and laser) can provide a comprehensive rejuvenation of all the eye area, addressing both structural and surface-level concerns.
Patients will have oral sedation, and the entire procedure (surgery and laser) is performed under local anaesthetic in one of our surgical theatres on-site at The Clinic Holland Park, West London. The eye surgeons at The Clinic often work together, so one surgeon might well be performing the upper-lid surgery while another surgeon will be in charge of administering the Erbium laser for the lower-lid rejuvenation. You will have guards inserted under your eyelids to protect your eyes during the laser treatment. The entire procedure will take approx. 90 minutes, after which time you will be taken to recuperate in one of our private recovery pods and attended to by our nursing staff.
Downtime is approximately 1-2 weeks, after which there will be minimal bruising and you can resume wearing makeup and your normal activities.
After surgery, you will be given an antibiotic ointment to treat the incision area for the following 2 weeks; and be advised to apply a cold compress to the eyelids every few hours to help lessen post-operative swelling and bruising. You will also be given a skin cream to apply to your lower lid area, and expect the lower-lid area to peel. A follow-up appointment with your surgeon to review your results and recovery takes place around 14 days after surgery at The Clinic Holland Park, West London.
Laser Bright Blepharoplasty is an effective and efficient solution for individuals seeking comprehensive eyelid rejuvenation with upper-eyelid surgery as its central component. The advantage of this combination is its excellent efficacy and safety profile, and the ability to address multiple periocular concerns in all four eyelids simultaneously, under local anaesthetic. Both procedures (surgical and laser) have a similar downtime of 7-10 days, which allows for a more efficient and convenient recovery period.
For those who do not want or need upper-eyelid surgery but are interested in the lifting and aesthetic effects of the Erbium laser in the whole eye area, we also offer our exclusive Quadralase treatment: a non-surgical upper and lower blepharoplasty performed by our oculoplastic surgeons with the Sciton® Erbium profractional laser.
