A blepharoplasty is an operation to tighten the skin and soft tissues of your eyelids. As you get older your skin becomes less elastic. Gravity pulls down on the skin and soft tissues of your eyelids.
A blepharoplasty can be done under a local anaesthetic injected into the area. The procedure can take up to one hour.
Your surgeon will make a cut in the natural skin crease of your upper eyelid or below your eyelashes in your lower lid. They will remove any excess skin and fat and close the wound using very fine stitches.
Alternatively your clincian may recommend we perform a blepharoplasty using our K laser. This can also be used for entropion and ectropion conditions.
Up to one hour
Any stitches will be removed 5 days following the procedure and you can return to normal activities 10 days after the procedure.
After the bruising has started to go down you should start to see the results. The final results will show at 6 months following the procedure.
The Results are permanent
The clinic is situated on the corner of Little Common Road and Peartree Lane, directly on the Little Common roundabout opposite the pelican crossing. There is two hour restricted parking on the nearby roads.
