Also known as hooded eye surgery or blepharoplasty, upper eye lift surgery is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the upper eyelids to remove droopiness caused by ageing, congenital condition and other influences.

Some people require an eyelid reduction because their peripheral vision is affected by how their upper lids hang. Others opt for this as a form of cosmetic surgery because it reduces the appearance of hooded or droopy eyelids and creates a brighter, fresher, more wide-awake look.

Book your appointment at our Glasgow clinic for a clinic that puts your needs first.

What Happens During an Upper Eye Lift Surgery?

Upper eyelid surgery is a facial surgery usually performed under local anaesthetic. First, the anaesthesia is injected into the treatment area to numb it. Once the local anaesthesia is active, a small strip of the excess skin is removed.

Occasionally it is also necessary to remove a small amount of fat too. However, we try to avoid doing this to prevent an over-done look around the upper lids. If this is part of your procedure, an incision is made in the crow’s feet area. A special machine is used to stop any bleeding, and the skin is then stitched back together.

In total, it usually takes about 30–40 minutes to do both sides.

Our plastic surgery specialists can advise you further on the fat removal part of the eyelid reduction procedure when you book an online consultation for your blepharoplasty in Glasgow at our cosmetic clinic.

Crow’s Feet Treatment Glasgow


Non-Surgical Treatments

Anti-wrinkle injections and laser treatments can be exceptionally effective in treating the fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area associated with ageing, sun damage and lost volume in the skin. Filler for crow’s feet is a very popular option because it offers the least discomfort and downtime.

What Is The Recovery Like After The Procedure?

After your surgical eye lift in Glasgow at our clinic, the surgeon will give you all of the information you need for the aftercare and recovery of your upper eyelids.

You may experience some bruising and swelling initially after eyelid surgery. Some patients experience a little bit of blurred vision, but this is temporary.

Some stitches will need to be removed five days after the procedure. Within about a week of recovery, most people feel comfortable returning to normal social activities.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The results of eyelid surgery are permanent: the removed skin will not return. This is one of the reasons why eyelid surgery for the upper lids is a popular choice for patients who think their eyes have the appearance of being tired or droopy.

Blepharoplasty can slow down the impact of ageing on the eyes and make them look younger.

What Other Procedures Can This Procedure Be Combined With?

Upper eyelid surgery is occasionally performed alongside facelift surgery to reduce wrinkles and tighten skin on the entire face. This is because our muscles slacken as we age after early adulthood. As this happens, our skin loses elasticity and begins to sag, creating a worn, older looking face.

Eyelid surgery is sometimes combined with lower eyelid surgery to remedy the appearance of tired eyes further. A pocket of fat causes eye bags under your lower eyelids. This fat can also be removed via an incision along the lower eyelid by adding the lower eyelid surgery procedure to your blepharoplasty in Scotland

The consultant plastic surgeon will discuss your treatment options and what type of facial surgery is best for you during the initial consultation for your upper eye lid surgery.

What Are The Potential Risks and Complications?

There is a risk of side effects and complications for surgical eyelid reduction, as with any operation involving cosmetic surgery.

There is a possibility of blood forming under the surface of the skin of the upper eyelids, which could necessitate further treatment to remove it. There is also a small risk of the wounds around the eyelids becoming infected, especially in patients who smoke.
