Upper Eye Lift Surgery


We Offer Upper Eye Lift Surgery from Our Clinics in Glasgow and London.

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 sedative.

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 is the recovery like after the procedure?

After the procedure you may experience some bruising and swelling.

There are some stitches which will need to be removed at five days after the procedure. Within about a week, most people feel comfortable enough to return to normal social activities.

How long do the results last?

The results of the upper eyelid surgery are permanent: the removed skin will not come back.

What other procedures can this procedure be combined with?

Upper eyelid surgery is sometimes also combined with lower eyelid surgery, and occasionally it is performed at the same time as facelift surgery.

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.
