Joanne Heaton – Eyelid Surgery

“I finally feel comfortable with my appearance, my eyes are brighter and I look more awake!”

At Pall Mall, we understand that people choose to have cosmetic surgery for lots of different reasons. Some want to look younger; others seek to change a feature they’ve never liked. Whatever the reason, the decision is personal and we’re here to help you explore the options available to you with our team of fantastic patient co-ordinaires and expert surgeons.

Cosmetic surgery won’t solve all your problems or turn you into someone else, but it may give you greater self-confidence and enhance to your mental well-being. Most of our patients considered cosmetic surgery for years before going ahead and thoroughly researched their procedure before deciding on the right provider and surgeon.

We caught up with one of our past patients Joanne Heaton at our recent patient photoshoot to find out why she had eyelid surgery and how it has changed her life.

Why did you opt to have surgery?

I had excessive skin on my eye lids which made me look tired all the time. I struggled to apply makeup because of this, and it just affected my confidence overall.

How long did you consider your procedure for?

About a year.

Why did you choose Pall Mall Cosmetics?

My friend recommended Pall Mall to me as she had surgery here and her results were fabulous.

Which surgeon did your procedure?

Mr. El Gowad

How did you feel before your procedure? Did you lack self-confidence?

I felt like I was ageing too quickly, and my eyelids made me look a lot older than I am. I had never been happy with my eyelids.

How did you feel after your procedure?

I felt a lot more confident after my procedure and my eyes are a lot brighter and firmer.

What would your advice be for someone considering cosmetic surgery?

I would say make sure that you think it through properly and ask lots of questions at your consultation so that you know exactly what is going to happen. You should also research your surgeon.

How has surgery changed your life?

I am a lot happier with my appearance and a lot more confident!

What things can you do now that you couldn’t do before your procedure?

I can finally feel comfortable with my appearance, my eyes are brighter, and I look more awake. I can wear makeup on my eyes when I couldn’t prior to my surgery. Thanks Pall Mall!
