Upper blepharoplasty eyelid lift opens up the eye area
An eye lift is a surgical procedure which works to rejuvenate the delicate eye area by removing excess skin in order to create a ‘lift’.
What is eyelid (blepharoplasty) surgery?
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is cosmetic surgery to remove excess skin or fat from around the eyelids to give the eyes a natural, fresher looking finish. People often get eyelid surgery to reduce the look of sagging, or swollen looking eyelids to improve self-confidence as well as medical-related issues with helping them to see better.
This is a surgical procedure which works to rejuvenate the delicate eye area removing excess skin and giving the eye a lifting result. Surgery can be performed on both the upper and lower lid.
What eyelid surgery treats
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural fold of the upper eyelid
- Fatty deposits that create puffiness in the eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Drooping lower eyelids
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
Surgical Eyelid Surgery
Surgery is thought of as being invasive, but with our expert surgeons it is far more accessible than before: A blepharoplasty or eyelid lift can be done under a local anaesthetic injected into the eyelids or under general anaesthetic. The operation takes up to an hour and a half.
Your surgeon will make a cut in the natural skin crease of your upper eyelid or below your eyelashes in your lower lid. They will remove any excess skin and fat and close the wound using very fine stitches.
Upper Blepharoplasty Eye Lift Surgery
The eyes are often the first to show signs of age and with time, sagging skin can become quite a problem. Fine lines become wrinkles and then deep creases until the eyes take on a tired, hooded or droopy appearance. Now Cosmedics Skin Clinics is offering upper eyelid surgery in order to tackle this problem.
The Effect of Eyelid Surgery
The effect of eyelid surgery to make people look younger and less tired or angry. It is a great choice for patients over the age of 45, where the signs of ageing are becoming established.
There is no need to worry about it looking too dramatic or fake. Our surgeons use sympathetic techniques designed for a subtle yet very effective impact.

Your Eyelid Lift Questions Answered
Upper Blepharoplasty FAQ
When can I go home after a upper blepharoplasty?
If you have local anaesthetic under your blepharoplasty eyelid lift treatment you should be able to go home a few hours after the procedure. If you have general anaesthetic you will need to wait until all the effects have worn off.
Do I need time off work after eyelid surgery?
Most patients will take a few days off to avoid being seen with stitches and swelling/bruising – but you don’t have to
Will it hurt after upper blepharoplasty?
You may need pain relief when the anaesthetic wears off to help with the bruising and swelling. We advise patients to expect mild discomfort for around 3-5 days. This is normally manageable with standard painkillers.
Can I shower and wash after eyelid surgery?
Yes, you’ll need to keep the area very clean while avoiding risk of damaging the wound. We will recommend suitable products and regimes.
Can I exercise after eyelid surgery?
We request no exercise for the first 1-2 weeks, to allow swelling and bruising to subside.
Can I wear contact lenses after an eyelid lift?
We recommend wearing glasses (spectacles) for 2 weeks to avoid any undue pulling on the eye area or risk of infection
What will swelling and bruising look like after an eye lift?
Patients can expect swelling for 3-5 days and bruising 7-10 days. Cold compresses and ice packs can be helpful in handling this
