Eyelid Surgery Specialists In London

Our leading plastic surgeons hold over 50 years of combined experience in eyelid surgery, having delivered hundreds of procedures at our London clinics.

When you make an appointment to discuss Blepharoplasty with us, you will be invited to attend a free, comprehensive, no-obligation consultation with an eyelid surgery specialist. During this preliminary consultation, a thorough assessment of your eyelids will be undertaken, followed by a detailed conversation about your desired results from the surgery.

The surgeon will then talk you through the options available to you, before providing a bespoke quote tailored to the specific requirements of your surgery. The same surgeon will deliver your procedure, ensuring they have first-hand knowledge of your desired results.

Our Eyelid Surgery Process

Our upper eyelid surgeries are performed under local anaesthetic. For lower eyelid surgery, a general anaesthetic is used.

Upper eyelid surgery involves making an incision along the fold of the eyelid to remove fat, skin, or muscle. The incision is then closed and a dressing is applied.

In lower eyelid surgery, an incision is made directly below the eyelashes along the eyelid crease. The excess fat, skin, or muscle is then either removed or redistributed before the incision is closed and protected with a dressing.

If your surgery involves both the upper and lower eyelids, your surgeon will work on your upper eyelids first before moving on to the lower eyelids.

Each procedure takes approximately 90 minutes to complete including recovery. Following the procedure, it is common to experience some bruising, swelling and temporary numbness.

As with all surgical procedures, there is a risk of discomfort, bleeding, infection, wound healing problems and scarring. A detailed discussion of all the possible risks and complications will be had with you during your preliminary consultation.

Recovery & Expert Aftercare

Once the procedure is complete you will be monitored for any complications and provided with painkillers and antibiotics if required. You will be given a comprehensive aftercare pack and will be able to go home on the same day, however, you will need to be accompanied by a friend or member of your family.

Three days after the surgery you will return to the clinic for a dressing change, and return again on day six to remove the stitches. Two months after your surgery, the surgeon who carried out your procedure will then execute a final check-up.

After eyelid surgery, visible results usually appear within a few weeks. Any scarring will fade with time, leaving a long-lasting result.

We are here to help if any complications arise following your surgery. You can contact the clinic via telephone, email or WhatsApp to speak with a member of staff.

Your treatment journey

The procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic and takes approximately 90  minutes to complete, including recovery. The skin will be incised and the excess trimmed off. The wound will be closed with sutures and a dressing will be applied on.

Following the procedure it is common to experience bruising, swelling and temporary numbness. As with all surgical procedures, there is a risk of discomfort, bleeding, infection, wound healing problems and scarring.

Once the procedure is complete, you can go home on the same day, however, you will need to be accompanied by a friend or member of your family. You will be given painkillers and occasionally a five day course of antibiotics to take home. You will be up and mobile on day one post-op, however, you will need to avoid any heavy lifting, exercise, swimming, driving and travel for one week. This gives plenty of time for the swelling to go down. Residual swelling can take up to ten weeks to settle down completely.

We will see you on day 3 post-op to change the dressings and assess the wounds, then see you again on day 6 to remove the sutures. Finally the surgeon will see you two months later for a final check-up.

A visible improvement from the eyelid surgery can appear usually just few weeks after surgery. Scars eventually fade away and the result should be long-lasting.

You will be reviewed and closely looked after at UKSKIN until the wounds are completely healed. If you experience any problems or have any queries following your surgery, we are always here to help. Please use our WhatsApp number provided to get in contact with one of our expert staff members.

A short message from our Lead Surgeon


What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a common facial surgery performed at our London clinics. It involves removing excess skin, muscle and fat from the eyelids, creating more space around the eye, making you look younger and reducing wrinkles and puffiness.

Eyelid surgery can be conducted on the upper eyelid between the eyebrow and the eyelashes, or on the lower eyelid between the eyelash and the cheek. Excess skin and fat are surgically removed to reshape the eye contour for a more youthful appearance.

What are the benefits of eyelid surgery?

Our eyes often show the earliest signs of ageing, as the skin loses its elasticity and muscles slacken with age. Blepharoplasty is often performed to improve the look of tired eyes and reduce the heaviness of eye bags and excess skin.

The treatment results in a smoother, more youthful-looking eye contour with reduced wrinkles, swelling and puffiness under the eye. Upper eyelid surgery can also improve your vision as well as the aesthetic appearance of the eye.

For some patients, eyelid surgery can also help to improve the symmetry of the eyes.

Will blepharoplasty make me look younger?

Blepharoplasty can help you to reclaim a more youthful appearance, turning back the clock on ageing skin and tired-looking eyes. Excess skin and puffy eye bags can make you look older than you really are, but blepharoplasty helps to open up the eyes and improve the condition of the skin. This contributes to a more youthful appearance.

Are you awake during eyelid surgery?

During upper eyelid surgery, patients are completely conscious. A local anaesthetic is used to numb the area, preventing the patient from feeling any pain. For lower eyelid surgery, patients are given a general anaesthetic, and will be asleep during the procedure.

What Is a good age for eyelid surgery?

Noticeable signs of ageing, such as sagging skin and droopy eyelids, may start to appear around the age of 30. However, the ideal age for blepharoplasty will depend on how apparent the signs of ageing are. Many patients seek out surgery from 30 onwards, although younger people are also eligible for the procedure. Plastic surgeons recommend patients to be at least 18 to undergo blepharoplasty.
