Upper Blepharoplasty

This a procedure to correct the hooding on the upper eyelids.

Tiny incisions are used in the natural crease of the upper eyelids which are disguised in the natural crease that we have there.

Excess skin is then removed.

Your eyes will look refreshed, and you will notice that you no longer have the tired look.

If your eyelid hooding has begun to impair your sight, then this will also be successfully treated at the same time.

The procedure takes around 45 minutes to one hour.

Lower Blepharoplasty

This procedure corrects the lower eyebags.

In this procedure we remove not only the excess skin but also the fatty tissue that forms the bags.

Once again, we use very tiny incisions placed discreetly on the lower eyelid or sometime in the inner lining of the eyelid.

This can be performed, and often is, together with an upper blepharoplasty.

This procedure takes around one hour. If you combine it with an upper blepharoplasty, then the total theatre time will be around one and a half hours.


Expect some bruising and swelling around the eyes after a blepharoplasty. This is perfectly normal and will settle over the coming weeks. Arrange some time off work, usually one week is enough in most cases.

When going out, you may want to wear some sunglasses. If your eyes start to feel a little dry at first, you can use some saline drops to help keep them comfortable.

Avoid strenuous exercise until the Plastic Surgeon has advised it’s okay to continue.
