As we age, the skin around our eyes starts to lose its elasticity. It is not uncommon to develop eye bags, as our muscles relax, causing the lower eyelids to sag. In addition, our upper eyelids can also start to droop. This effect is often heightened in smokers or those who have had excessive sun exposure.

Eyelid reduction (blepharoplasty) is a common aesthetic procedure both men and women can benefit from, in order to achieve a fresher, more youthful facial appearance.

Eyelid Reduction at the Cadogan Clinic is designed to remove loose skin and excess fatty tissue around the eye area, tightening the relaxed muscles and giving the skin a firmer, more youthful appearance. Our highly skilled surgeons are leading experts in their field, and we are committed to using the best technologies and methods available, in order to achieve results you will be delighted with.

Eyelid Reduction at Cadogan Cosmetics is one of the simplest and safest cosmetic surgery procedures you can have. Your highly experienced surgeon will carefully make incisions along the natural creases of your eyes resulting in minimal, if any, scarring.

When you come to the Cadogan Cosmetics clinic for your Eyelid Reduction surgery, one of our friendly nurses will take you downstairs and prep you for surgery whilst the surgeon will obtain your consent and mark out the area. Local anaesthetic is given, and the actual treatment will only take around thirty minutes to one hour. Ice packs will be given to keep swelling minimal and pain relief and eye ointment can be provided if needed. Once your surgeon is happy for you to leave and you have made your post-operative appointment, your friend or relative is able to collect you and take you home.

Your surgeon will give you pre-operative advice at your initial consultation which may include having an eye test if you have eye health issues, stopping smoking or taking certain medications such as aspirin which may delay healing, and you may choose to take arnica tablets prior to surgery to reduce any bruising.

Your surgeon may advise for you to take a week off work depending on your particular case as you may have minor swelling and bruising around the eye area following your surgery. This will subside within around ten days and is completely normal. Your stitches will be removed 3-5 days after your eyebag surgery and you are able to wear makeup one week afterwards. If you feel any discomfort, your doctor is able to provide pain relief for you though this is not usually necessary. It can take up to a few months for your eyelids to completely settle and to see the final result

At Cadogan Cosmetics our cosmetic surgeons are highly experienced in carrying out blepharoplasty procedures and will ensure that your results are completely natural. Once healing has taken place, you will look refreshed and more youthful-looking.

Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery at Cadogan Cosmetics starts at £2700 and following your consultation with your experienced surgeon you will be given a price.

Any pain during Eyelid Surgery is minimal though if you opt for upper and lower eyelid surgery you may prefer to have the procedure done under general anaesthetic. Any discomfort you may experience following the treatment can be controlled with pain relief and eye ointments provided by your surgeon.

The Blepharoplasty procedure is good for improving drooping eyelids as it removes excess skin and fatty tissue from above the eye (upper Blepharoplasty) removing the hood of skin which can develop as we age. This treatment can also be used to remove excess fatty tissue and skin from underneath the eyes (lower Blepharoplasty) and can smooth out crow’s feet.

Blepharoplasty or Eyebag Surgery can be done under local anaesthetic and involves the surgeon making tiny incisions along the natural crease of the eye, carefully separating the skin from tissue underneath and removing or repositioning the fatty tissue before stretching the skin and stitching it back together ensuring any wrinkles are smoothed out.

Also known as ‘eyelid surgery’ or eyebag removal, the popular blepharoplasty procedure is a relatively quick treatment which removes excess fat and skin from around the eyes.

If you have hooded eyelids or sagging eyelids, eyelid surgery at Cadogan Cosmetics could be beneficial to you, and our surgeons are some of the best in the UK. It can be done under local anaesthetic and you are able to leave the clinic with a friend or relative once it has been carried out.

We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.

What to Expect

Step 1. Optional Free Consultation

We offer a free no-obligation 30-60 minute consultation with one of our specialist patient advisors to help you decide whether surgery is the right choice for you. The consultation will take the form of a discussion with an expert with over 15 years industry experience in which we begin to understand your objectives and the results you want to achieve.

If you decide to go ahead with treatment, our advisers can give you all the information you require to choose the right procedure and the right surgeon for you. This is also an excellent opportunity to see our facilities and get a feel for the Cadogan experience.

Step 2. Surgical Consultation

The next step is to come in and meet your chosen surgeon at the Clinic. We have assembled some of the best surgeons in the world who will use this time to make a comprehensive medical assessment of you and your condition before proceeding with treatment.

In practice this involves a 30-60 minute consultation in which a detailed assessment of the outcomes you can achieve is made and any questions you may have about the procedure are answered.

Step 3. The Procedure

On the day of your procedure you will be welcomed at the Clinic by your patient advisor and dedicated nursing staff. Following a brief medical check, you will meet with both your surgeon and anesthetist to run through the details of your procedure one final time and answer any last questions you may have.

After the procedure you will recover in the capable hands of your nursing after care team. As we are a day case facility you can expect your recovery to be complete within 2 to 3 hours and able to be discharged from the Clinic the very same day. In some cases patients may wish to stay locally in our exclusive partner hotel the day before or after your procedure.

Step 4. After Care & Support

Our care and support continues in the days and weeks after your procedure with our complimentary aftercare programme. A series of free appointments will be made with your surgeon and nursing team in order to monitor your progress and recovery, as well as introduce you to several scar minimization techniques and bespoke creams to aid your progress.

Access to our aftercare nursing team is free of charge for a full 12 months after your surgery.
