UK's Leading Eyelid Reduction Specialists
Upper eyelid surgery
Lower eyelid surgery
Eyes are the first features we notice on someone’s face. With time, signs of ageing begin to appear first around the eyes. This is because the eyelid skin is the thinnest skin in our body. Over time, the skin stretches and can become saggy, resulting in droopy and puffy eyelids. This can give the impression of being tired, sad or angry. Saggy/droopy eyelids can also cause visual disturbances.
Eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, is a procedure that removes this skin excess and parts of the fat pads which are responsible for the "puffy" effect (commonly known as bags). The procedure improves the appearance of your eyelids, achieving a more refreshed and youthful look. Removal of the obstructive hanging skin can also lead to the improvement of the visual field.

What our clients say about us
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.
