Blepharoplasty (Eye Lid Surgery)
Lift droopy eyelids, reduce puffy eye bags – rejuvenate the appearance around your eyes
Our eyes are one of the most important parts of our face, it’s the first thing that other people look at when they see us. Whether it’s puffiness, bags, folds, wrinkles, excess skin – our eyes, eyelids & eye bags often appear more tired as part of the natural ageing process.
A blepharoplasty is an effective way to restore a youthful appearance around the crucial eye area. The procedure can be done for the lower eyelids/eye bags, upper eyelids or both. If you are interested in the area around your eyes, book a free of charge one consultation with one of Facial Cosmetic or Plastic Surgeons.

Blepharoplasty Procedure Information
It is natural for skin to droop with the ageing process, however, it is often most noticeably visible around the eye area. It can make us look older, tired and even sad! Sun damage, stress, sleep patterns, smoking, weakening muscles and other factors may contribute to the appearance of this area.
The blepharoplasty procedure is a fairly simple surgery to correct this and restore a more youthful appearance. This is done by a Plastic Surgeon or Facial Cosmetic Surgeon removing the excess skin/ fat/muscle around the eye area – typically the upper/lower eyelids and eye bags.
It is a common procedure performed to enhance & restore self-esteem, though it is also chosen by some people to improve their vision.
The Blepharoplasty procedure involves your surgeon making very small incisions around the eyes to trim excess & remove fat. The incisions are made in the natural lines/creases that already exist meaning that scarring is minimal and rarely noticeable.
A lower lid Blepharoplasty will also elevated and re-drape the area under the eyes, often combined with a cheek lift to provide the desired look.
The procedure is either performed under local or general anaesthesia, typically as a day case with the procedure lasting approximately 1-2 hours in theatre.
In order to create a fully rejuvenated appearance, you may consider combining the Blepharoplasty with a Brow Lift or MACS Facelift. Cheeks fillers and anti-wrinkle treatment may be able to provide similar results, in combination with a Blepharoplasty, however, the surgeon can fully advise on this.
It is crucial to understand that achieving a perfect outcome is not only removing the fat/skin – but also using careful techniques to re-drape the tissues to restore natural-looking contours with the optimum level of volume. Do make sure you choose an experienced Surgeon who understands this before you decide to proceed.
The procedure is only available privately. In extremely rare circumstances, the NHS will subsidise a blepharoplasty – but only if there are severe vision problems.
