As a result, the cost of ptosis surgery in Singapore, encompassing both lower and upper blepharoplasty, may vary from patient to patient.

Key Factors Influencing the Overall Lower and Upper Eyelid Surgery Cost:

  • Procedure Complexity, including upper and lower eyelids or just one area, impacts the cost. The extent of correction required plays a role in determining the overall expense. For instance, lower blepharoplasty costs may differ from upper blepharoplasty costs due to addressing multiple concerns, like under-eye bags and sagging skin.
  • Technique and Approach influence the overall cost. Our plastic surgeon selects the most suitable approach based on individual anatomy and aesthetic goals.
  • Facility Fees associated with the surgical facility contribute to the overall cost of ptosis surgery in Singapore. Our procedures are conducted in accredited and well-equipped facilities to ensure patient safety and comfort.
While some aspects of the procedure can be adjusted, complete reversibility may not be possible. Communicating clearly with the surgeon about your expectations during the consultation is essential.

Look for a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who specialises in eyelid procedures. Consider the surgeon’s credentials, reputation, and patient reviews to make an informed decision.

No. Double eyelid surgery should not negatively impact vision.
Yes. Combining double eyelid surgery with other facial procedures like rhinoplasty or facelifts for comprehensive facial enhancement with a single recovery period is expected.

After eyelid surgery, postoperative swelling and bruises last at least one to three weeks. Patients may expect swelling to peak in the first few days. Although most noticeable swelling typically resolves within the first two weeks, residual swelling may persist for several weeks in other cases.

To help manage swelling during upper and lower eyelid surgery recovery, apply cold compresses, especially in the initial days after surgery. Also, stay hydrated and rest when you can to support the body’s natural healing processes.

Resuming makeup application after blepharoplasty is an exciting step in your recovery journey. It is recommended to allow for initial healing before introducing makeup, usually around 7 to 10 days after ptosis surgery. This period allows the incisions to close, reducing the risk of irritation or infection.

To ensure a smooth and comfortable experience, be cautious when applying makeup around the incision areas. Use a light touch and avoid direct contact with the healing incisions to prevent disruption or irritation.
