Remove tired, droopy eyelids and let your eyes brighten your face

Eyelid surgery is one of my favourite surgeries to perform. This is for many reasons, but top of the list is the amazing aesthetic difference it makes to your face. It is a quick procedure, with little downtime and it brightens your face; reduces your visible age with little hassle and is a fraction of the cost of a facelift.

The Blepharoplasty procedure in a nutshell is the tightening and removal of the skin and fat pads in the upper and lower eyelids. Droopy eyelids give the impression of age, being tired and/or being unhealthy. We can fix that in no time and make you look more like you feel.

The surgery can be done in my rooms, but in most cases I prefer to do it in theatre under general anaesthetic. Eyelid Surgery takes between 30 and 60 minutes and because it is such a short timeframe, many patients combine the surgery with other procedures like Liposuction or Fat Grafting.

Scars are hidden in the folds of the eyelids, and you can see the final result very soon after the initial swelling has subsided – which should be a few days. We will discuss all the risks and complications when we meet and I always offer my cosmetic patients a second consultation free of charge to let me relieve any nervousness you might have or answer any questions that have popped up.
