The typical eyelid surgery has drooping layers of skin and deep wrinkles on the eyelids. These lead to a tired and sad looking appearance.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, otherwise known as upper blepharoplasty, offers a surgical solution to correct drooping eyelids which can appear very ageing.

Eyelid removal surgery has become increasingly popular over recent years, offering surgical solution to drooping, heavy eyelids which can be ageing. The procedure, also known as “upper blepharoplasty” removes excess skin above the eyes to rejuvenate and refresh the face .

This procedure is ideal for:

  • People with heavy, droopy eye lids, which make a person look sad, tired and older than they really are
  • Deep wrinkles around the eyes
  • Both women and men

The Eyelid Surgery Procedure

A curved incision is made across the natural crease of the skin and excess fat and tissue is removed to lift and open up the eye area.

Upper Blepharoplasty Procedure

step 1

Upper eyelid surgery involves a curved incision across the natural crease of the skin and removal of excess fat and skin.


step 2

The incision is hidden within the natural fold of the upper eye, revealing brighter, more “awake” eyes.


When you are considering cosmetic surgery, it’s really helpful and interesting to see what results other patients have had.

If you come for a consultation, you’ll be able to see more photos and discover what’s possible for you.

What happens during eyelid surgery?

Cosmetic surgery to correct heavy, saggy or tired-looking eyelids is called upper blepharoplasty. The procedure removes excess skin and fat in the eyelids to provide tauter skin and a fresher looking eye area.

After the procedure, this patient’s eyes and face look much brighter and more youthful without the eye lids. This patient had both upper and lower blepharoplasty (i.e. eyelids and eyebag removal).

Will the wrinkles return after eyelid surgery?

During your medical consultation your surgeon will point out that the skin will continue to age. It is important that you understand that the ageing process will not stop after eyelid surgery.

Who is the best patient for eyelid surgery?

The most suitable candidate for eyelid surgery is someone who has wrinkles and/or drooping layers of skin on the eyelids.

Could I have facial rejuvenation and eyelid surgery together?

It depends on your individual requirements. If you would benefit from both procudres, the best results are achieved when the two procedures are combined resulting in a dramatic overall improvement.

Will there be scarring after facial rejuvenation?

In the case of eye rejuvenation an incision is made close to the natural crease of the eyelid. During a facelift, incisions are made in the natural crease lines. In both procedures post operative scarring will fade over time and become virtually undetectable.
