What is blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)?
Commonly known as an eyelid reduction, a blepharoplasty is a simple, safe and quick procedure to remove excess fat or skin from the eyelids with the aim of improving drooping, hooded or misshaped eyelids.
With age, our muscles slacken and the skin loses its elasticity. For the eyelids, this results in folds in the upper lids and deepening creases in the lower lids which can affect eyesight and change the shape of our eyes. A blepharoplasty is an effective way to restore a youthful appearance around the eye area and can be carried out under local or general anaesthetic on the lower eyelids/eye bags, upper eyelids or both.
During a free of charge consultation with one of our facial surgeons you can find out about the procedure in detail and whether it's right for you.
What results can I expect from blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)?
The results of your surgery will be instantly apparent after blepharoplasty, giving you a fresher, more youthful appearance with minimal scarring. Any visual swelling should go down after a month and you'll see the final result of the procedure within 2-3 months.
“My eyes look a lot brighter and firmer after my procedure!”
My friend recommended blepharoplasty surgery because she’d had a great result from her surgery at Pall Mall. I had excessive skin on my eyelids, always looked tired and struggled to wear makeup on my eyes. I lacked confidence and felt like I was ageing quickly, and I wasn’t happy about it. Since my procedure my eyes are a lot brighter and firmer.

What happens during
From your first call or email, we’re here to look after you. Whether you're still researching about blepharoplasty and would like more information, or you're ready to meet a surgeon to see what results you can achieve, our team of patient co-ordinators are here for you.
Prior to your operation, you'll be asked to come in for an appointment with a surgeon so that they can better understand your concerns and then examine your eyes. This will last between 20-45 minutes during which time the surgeon will discuss the procedure, post-surgery support and aftercare that you should expect as well as things you can do at home for added comfort and to assist the recovery.
Prior to your Blepharoplasty surgery, you will be invited into a pre-operative assessment with a member of our medical team so that we can appraise your medical health to ensure that you are in good condition for the surgery. This process will involve a blood/urine sample being taken as well as an MRSA test.
Finally, the nurse will photograph your eyes before surgery for our medical record. There's no rush here, so you'll have plenty of time to then speak with the nurse and get some answers for any concerns or points of interest you might.
After this you'll be closer to your surgery and please keep in touch if you have any questions between the pre-op and the day of your surgery!
On the day of your Blepharoplasty, you will attend our private hospital with free on-site parking and large rooms with en-suites to ensure your comfort. Your nurse and surgeon will then assess your health and ask for a further consent form to be signed before being taken to theatre.
For the operation, you will be placed under one of general or local anaesthetic, and the procedure will take two hours, after which our medical team will carry out the post-surgery examination.
After the surgery, we are keen to have you back in the clinic so we can monitor the results and see how you've reacted to the surgery. Therefore we will book you in for 3 separate visits after 1, 2 and 6 weeks to analyse this as well as take photographs to document the process.
The most important thing to remember when you're a patient at Pall Mall is that we are always willing to help you at any point along your journey. So if you want to keep in touch or arrange further meetings please bear in mind we have 24/7 line directly to our wonderful nurses. Our medical team are always happy for you to come back to the clinic if you want to know more about the surgery or if you have any concerns.
