Case Study


Eyelid Surgery Before & After Photos (11)


This patient presented with a very heavy upper eyelid, this is a combination of excess skin and excess fat in the area. The lower lid is also heavy, causing dark shadowing.


The patient underwent an upper and lower Blepharoplasty procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the eyelids. It has created a natural looking upper eyelid crease and in this case, has reduced the dark shadowing of the lower lid. This procedure is performed using highly specialised lasers.

How the procedure works – On the Day of the Procedure

One of the most common questions patients ask our clinic relates to the day of their procedure. Many patients are often concerned about their treatment, so they like to plan their treatment from beginning to end.

To ensure patients can have a better idea about their treatment, we have created an overview about important facts regarding treatment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. So, if you want more info, be sure to check out the information below.

What Are the Facilities Like at Dr Lanzer’s Malvern Clinic?

We do all of our procedures here in our clinic in Malvern. We have a state of the art day surgery centre with a fully equipment theatre and experienced staff here to take care of you.

What Will Happen on the Day of the Procedure?

On the day of the procedure you will be admitted through reception and then taken through to the pre-admission room where a nurse will complete your admission. Dr Lanzer will then consult you and chat about the procedure and answer any of your final questions. He will then take some photos of your eyes for your file. He will then take a surgical marker and mark the upper eyelid where he will remove the skin and tissue. Of course, this cannot be done on the lower lid as he does not remove any skin form this area. He will then take more photos for your file.

Our anaesthetist will then take you through to theatre and place you under a general anaesthetic. While you are asleep Dr Lanzer will place some local anaesthetic into the upper and lower lid. This local anaesthetic helps to reduce bleeding and provides you with comfort when you wake up. He then places an eye shield in your eye to protect it from the laser. For an Upper Blepharoplasty he uses a specialised laser to make the incision of the skin and combines this with using a diathermy to cauterise superficial blood vessels and remove excess skin and tissue. Once done, he will bring the skin back together using a small running suture and glue, both of which are removed one week post-surgery. For the Lower Blepharoplasty, Dr Lanzer flips the lower lid forward, places and eye shield in position and makes an incision with the laser and removes the excess fat. Once done he flips the lid back up, there is no need for sutures or glue.
