Upper Blepharoplasty – the Upper Eyelid Lift
When eyelids are showing obvious signs of ageing or tiredness, an Upper Eyelid Lift can provide superb improvements immediately. The eyelid is lifted with a procedure called an Upper Blepharoplasty. During this surgical procedure, one of our Consultant Plastic Surgeons will remove excess folds of skin and the fatty deposits within them to leave the eyes with a much more youthful appearance.
As we age, the downward pull of gravity and loss of elasticity in the skin causes the skin and muscles around the eye to weaken and stretch. This results in an accumulation of loose skin and a protrusion of fat, forming “eye-bags”. The severity of this may run in families and can be accelerated by the effects of smoking, sun-exposure and weight-loss.
An Upper Blepharoplasty is a skilled procedure and we would recommend that you choose a surgeon who has undergone a full training programme for cosmetic surgery. These surgeons will be on the Specialist Register of Plastic Surgery at the General Medical Council. Mr Watt, Mr Williams and Mr Mather are on the Specialist Register of Plastic Surgery and are full members of the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (www.bapras.org.uk).
