About Eyelid Reduction Treatments

Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) can be done due to various reasons. It can go beyond restoring function and appearance by potentially improving vision caused by excess skin sagging in front of the eye. Eyelid surgery is most commonly undertaken for cosmetic reasons to improve an aged appearance or hooded heaviness.

By correcting the wrinkles and under-eye bags that can make you look tired and older, blepharoplasty is able to give you a fresh and well-rested look. Areas commonly targeted by this procedure are the upper and lower eyelids, including the hollows beneath the eyes and the tear troughs.

Eyelid Reduction Facts and Figures

  • Eyelid Reduction is the easiest and most popular procedure to reverse the signs of aging
  • The procedure is available for either the upper or lower lids, or both at the same time
  • The procedure typically takes between 1 and 3 hours and is done under local anaesthesia
  • The incisions are hardly noticeable as they are made close to your eyelids
  • Your stitches are taken out between 7 and 10 days after the procedure
  • You can return to work within 4 to 7 days after the procedure

Upper Eyelid Surgery

  • Undergoing upper eyelid surgery only requires a local anaesthetic
  • The incision is made discreetly in the crease line above the eyelashes
  • The incisions are closed using very fine sutures

Lower Eyelid Surgery

  • Undergoing lower eyelid surgery requires local anaesthetic
  • An incision is usually made from the outer part of the eyelashes
  • Overlapping skin will be removed during the procedure
  • The incisions are closed using very fine sutures

 Transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty Surgery

Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is another option for improving lower eyelids. It is typically used to improve the aesthetic appearance of the lower eyelid without creating external scarring. When treating the deeper tissues of orbital fat, ligaments, and orbital septum, this surgical approach indicates that no skin incision is performed hence no skin excess can be removed. If there is excess skin the classic lower blepharoplasty is needed.

Blepharoplasty FAQ

What is Blepharoplasty?2020-11-25T17:15:57+00:00

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid reduction surgery, is a kind of cosmetic surgery where excess skin or fat is removed from the eyelids. The skin or fat may be removed from the top, bottom, or both eyelids, depending on the patient.

How much does Blepharoplasty cost?2023-11-21T13:07:28+00:00

Prices for Blepharoplasty are £1900 for upper eyelids, £2400 for lower eyelids, and £3700 for both.

How long do the results of Blepharoplasty last?2021-03-03T10:07:15+00:00

The results of blepharoplasty last, on average, for at least 5-10 years. This number is influenced by how well you take care of your skin.

What are some of the reasons an individual would choose eyelid surgery?2021-03-03T09:49:41+00:00

Blepharoplasty is preferred by patients who want to reduce the bags under their eyes or eliminate droopy eyelids that are making them look tired or grumpy. On some occasions it is performed in order to restore peripheral vision that has been impaired by severe excess skin.

Will eyelid surgery fix my peripheral vision?2021-01-12T09:11:55+00:00

Eyelid surgery only fixes peripheral vision that is blocked by droopy eyelids. There are many other causes of peripheral vision loss, including glaucoma, occlusions, a detached retina or a compression of the optic nerve. If you are experiencing peripheral vision loss, it is important to schedule an appointment with our eye doctor for a thorough examination and diagnosis.

How long will I need to recover?2021-03-03T09:53:16+00:00

Blepharoplasty is done on an outpatient basis. You will be able to go back home soon after your procedure, once your surgeon determines that it is safe for you to return home. As a rule of thumb, your stitches, if not self-dissolving, will be removed after 7 to 10 days. Most patients make a full recovery within one month, although recovery may take longer on occasion.

Am I too young to have lower eyelid surgery?2021-03-03T10:03:37+00:00

Bags in the lower or upper eyelids are common characteristics of an ageing face. Some patients have a genetic predisposition to these bags or have excess skin in their eyelids. These can be good candidates for the procedure.

How long do the effects last?2021-01-12T09:14:02+00:00

It is expected that the effects would last for at least 5-10 years, if not more.
