To learn more about laser blepharoplasty in Sydney, please read the information provided by Dr Lanzer and his associates below.
What is laser blepharoplasty?
Laser blepharoplasty in Sydney is a surgical procedure that uses a laser to correct abnormalities and deformities in the eye region. It is also used to improve the aesthetics of the eyelids, which means it can improve problems such as eye bag issues, loose skin, and similar issues.
Laser blepharoplasty eyelid surgery can have different names. For example, if the surgeon focusses on the upper eyelids, then the procedure can be referred to as upper eyelid surgery. The treatment can also be combined with laser resurfacing, which improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How to remove scars from blepharoplasty?
The scars remaining after this kind of aesthetic surgery are usually not visible to the naked eye. Incisions can – in some cases – be made on the inside of the eyelid; this means that the scar will not be visible. When making an incision on the inside of the eyelid is not possible, the surgeon can also make the incision on the natural crease of the eyelid.
Are you awake during blepharoplasty?
General anaesthesia or local anaesthesia can be used during this procedure. You and your surgeon will discuss the type of anaesthetic before your treatment takes place. It can be subject to the complexity of the procedure as well as the preferences of the patient.

Is laser blepharoplasty safe?
The advantages of laser blepharoplasty are many, but this does not mean there are not any risks. Any type of cosmetic surgery carries risks, so it is important that patients are aware of those risks before they have their surgery. Patients who visit the Dr Lanzer Clinic need to read and sign a consent form to ensure they are fully aware of the risks that accompany laser blepharoplasty.
Patients also need to consider their post-operative recovery. It is common to experience some swelling and bruising after the procedure, which dissipates over time. Your clinic will also provide you with some post-operative guidelines that need to be followed; this will relate to wound care as well as tips to increase your recovery speed.
It is important that patients keep the treatment area as clean as possible shortly after their procedure; this because the area is sensitive and could be more prone to infection. Some patients may receive a preventative dose of antibiotics, which are taken to prevent infection after your surgery. If you receive antibiotics or other medications from your cosmetic surgery, it is important to take them as instructed.
Patients should be aware of potential medication interaction during their recovery. There are also certain medications that should be avoided during recovery in general; this includes medications that can increase the chance of bleeding. Common medications such as ibuprofen and aspirin need to be avoided until the Dr Lanzer Clinic gives the all clear.
To reduce some of the swelling your experience after your surgery, it can be a good idea to sleep on an extra pillow at night. Keeping your head elevated will enhance the healing process, but also reduce fluid retention that can cause additional swelling.
In addition to sleeping on an extra pillow, you can also add a cold pack to the treatment area for approximately ten minutes. Cold packs on the night of your surgery should only be used once and not longer than the recommended ten minutes. Once 24 hours has passed, you can use your cold packs up to five times.
Side-effect such as bruising and swelling will dissipate gradually during the healing process. However, it is important not to evaluate the results you have obtained from surgery until you have healed. Patients will attend a follow-up appointment with Dr Lanzer or one of his associates, during which results can be seen and discussed. Of course, results will become eve more visible as you go through your healing process.
Is blepharoplasty covered by insurance?
Not all blepharoplasty procedures are covered by insurance. However, if you have a blepharoplasty to restore your field of vision, it may be covered by insurance. To check if your procedure is covered, you can always speak to Dr Lanzer or one of his associates.
