Eyelid Lift Surgery (BLEPHEROPLASTY)
London | Northampton | Milton Keynes 

  • Ageing leads to sagging of eyelid skin and muscle and prolapse of fat forming bags around the eye. This age-related change starts in your 30’s though the extent varies from one individual to the next. This results in a sad, tired, and aged appearance and in some cases, interference with the peripheral field of vision. Eyelid lift/Blepharoplasty addresses this by excising the excess skin and repositioning of the prolapsed fat. The result is a fresher looking more awake eye without any undue bulging and shadows.

  • The surgery can be done with local anaesthesia with sedation or under general anaesthesia dependent on your preference and medical condition. On an average it takes around 20-25 minutes each eyelid and the recovery period is about a week.

    The skin incision for upper eyelid is hidden in your existing skin crease. For the lower eyelid the incision is hardly perceptible as it is hidden just under your eyelashes. In some cases, I make a cut inside within your conjunctiva in which case there is no visible scar at all. I usually reposition the prolapsing fat, called Fat Transposition technique as this avoids a “hollow” eye look and gives a better appearance.

    Sutures are usually removed within a week and the scar is hardly perceptible after the first few weeks.

  • It is common for the excess upper eyelid skin to be worsened by descent of the eyebrow as we age. For optimum outcome in such situation, Blepharoplasty should be combined with Brow/Forehead lift for adequate outcome.
