Why get eyelid surgery?

There are a few reasons as to why someone might want to have blepharoplasty. Here a few reasons as to why you might be considering this treatment:

Our upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures are carried out in our CQC registered clinic by our Medical Director; Dr George Filobbos who is an esteemed Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon.

Upper Blepharoplasty


The upper blepharoplasty procedure is done under local anaesthetic meaning the treatment will be extremely painless and you will be free to go home on the same day. During the procedure our UK trained doctor will make a small incision along the crease of the upper eyelid, just above the lash line. The doctor will then begin to separate the skin from the tissue before repositioning and removing any fatty tissue and tightening the muscles. The skin is then tightened around the area before the incision is closed back up.


Lower Blepharoplasty


The lower blepharoplasty procedure is also done under local anaesthetic. During the procedure our UK trained doctor will make a small incision along the lower lash line. The doctor will then begin to remove any excess fat from your eye-bag area and tighten the surrounding skin before closing the incision area.
