Blepharoplasty (also known as 'eyelid surgery', eye lift or eyebag removal) is a relatively quick surgical procedure to remove excess skin and muscle from both the upper and lower eyelids along with underlying fatty tissue. It can improve drooping skin and bagginess and help improve vision in older patients who have hooding of their upper eyelids.
Although it can add an upper eyelid crease to the Asian eyelid, it will not erase evidence of one’s racial or ethnic heritage. Blepharoplasty will also not remove “crow’s feet” or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under the eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows.
Blepharoplasty surgery is customised to every patient, depending on his or her particular needs. It can be performed alone involving upper, lower or both eyelid regions, or in conjunction with other surgical procedures of the eye, face, brow, or nose. Eyelid surgery cannot stop the process of aging. It can however, diminish the look of loose skin and bagginess in the eyelid region.
If you have hooded eyelids or sagging eyelids, blepharoplasty could be beneficial to you, and our surgeons are some of the best in the UK.
