Blepharoplasty is the most common cosmetic facial surgical procedure. Blepharoplasty means getting rid of excess skin, muscle or fat or combinations of the above around the eyelids, without visible scars.


Upper lid Blepharoplasty

Upper lid Blepharoplasty refers to removal of skin from the upper lids which often makes the eyes feel heavy and gives you a tired look. Lower lid Blepharoplasty Lower lid Blepharoplasty is more complex and can involve simply removing skin or can involve removing fat or bags underneath the eyelids. Blepharoplasties can often be combined with CO2 laser resurfacing, brow lifts and thread lifts and the effect can be enhanced by our collagen tightening treatments. It is invasive surgery that needs to be discussed fully and needs a thorough eye assessment to assess the eye health before being undertaken.


Involved downtime: Downtime after a Blepharoplasty ranges from one to three weeks. This can be shortened by committing to our “Premium Package” to speed up healing.
