Eyelid Surgery & Eye Bag Removal (Blepharoplasty)

Upper Blepharoplasty and Lower Blepharoplasty are cosmetic procedures offered at The Clinic, Sandymount Green, Dublin 4.  The surgery is performed under Local Anaesthetic with /without sedation. Patients return home the same day. Blepharoplasty procedures can be carried out under sedation with  local anaesthesia or local anaesthesia only. General anaesthesia is optional but rarely necessary. Blepharoplasty is carried out as a day case procedures. The procedure takes between one and a half to two hours.

Recovery and Aftercare:

The level of discomfort is slight. The eyelids, particularly the lower eyelids, tend to bruise easily. Vision is unaffected. Light pain relief may be taken. Lubrication of the eye with ointment especially at night is very important. Arnica may also be used for bruising. The sutures are removed after about one week. Bruising usually takes two to three weeks to resolve. Makeup may be applied once the sutures have been removed. Dark or tinted glasses may be worn. It is usually necessary to take time off work to facilitate recovery.


Blepharoplasty removes the heaviness and tired appearance of the eyes. It is highly rated among facial cosmetic procedures. The scars may be visible during the initial six weeks. Makeup helps to conceal the scars. By three months the scars are inconspicuous in most cases.

Risks and Complications:

Blepharoplasty is a very safe procedure if performed by an experienced Surgeon. Potential risks will be explained during the course of your Consultation. Generally complications are uncommon. The vast majority of individuals who undergo Blepharoplasty achieve a very satisfactory result and a disappointing outcome is therefore uncommon.

After having tried numerous creams on my eyes I decided to take a more radical approach. I looked into different surgeons and on recommendation went to see Mr James Small. I was very apprehensive about this because I didn’t need a facelift but wanted my eyes done so it was very important to me that everything was in keeping and my eyes didn’t scream surgery! I wanted a natural look, only more refreshed looking. I decided Mr Small was realistic, he explained the operation and understood my needs. Immediately after the operation I looked like a car crash victim, I thought ‘what have I done’. It does take a while for everything to settle, it isn’t an instant fix. Personally I would do it all again, I was delighted with my results. So much so I am already planning another procedure for next year …. with Mr Small of course !   I was so impressed with the level of advice and care I received from Mr Small and his team, before, during and after my blepharoplasty procedure. Mr Small proved himself to be an accomplished, proficient, patient, understanding and talented surgeon who has given me back my confidence.  I cannot recommend him highly enough. I have become a truly happy and confident person since my surgery and I have Mr Small to thank for that.  If I’d known how well I would be treated, how easy and quick the healing process would be and what the final results would look like, I’d have gone to Mr Small years ago!!!   Thank you Mr Small – you are a true gentleman and a genius!
