We offer Upper eye lift surgery – blepharoplasty from our clinics in London and Glasgow.
An upper eye lift is an operation designed to remove excess skin from the upper eyelid area.
It can reduce the appearance of droopy or ‘hooded’ eyelids and creates a brighter, fresher, more wide awake look.
What happens during the upper eye lift procedure?
Upper eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anaesthetic. First an injection is carried out to make the area numb. Next, a small strip of skin is removed. Occasionally it is also necessary to remove a small amount of fat too, although we try to avoid having to do this to avoid an ‘over-done’ look. A special machine is the used to stop any bleeding and the skin is then stitched back together. In total, it normally takes about 30-40 minutes to do both sides.
WHERE ARE THE SCARS?
The scars are hidden in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. Over time the scars should be virtually undetectable.
What are the potential risks and complications?
Like any operation, there is a risk of side effects and complications. There is a possibility of a collection of blood forming under the surface of the skin, which could necessitate further treatment to remove it. There is also a small risk of wounds becoming infected, especially in patients who smoke.
