Blepharoplasty is a procedure designed to remove any puffiness and sagging, giving the eyes a smoother and more youthful appearance. Eyelid operations take between one to three hours, depending on whether the surgery involves both upper and lower lids. For the upper eye, an incision (or cut) is made in the natural fold of the eye lid and then excess skin and fat are removed.

During the procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the abdomen and the underlying muscles of the tummy (abdominal wall) are tightened. There are different types of tummy tuck and the technique chosen depends upon the amount of fat and loose skin to be removed. Sometimes, liposuction is carried out at the same time to give the best results. If you are planning a future pregnancy or anticipate a significant loss of weight in the future, it is probably best to postpone your tummy tuck until after these events have occurred to optimize your results.
