Upper Blepharoplasty Day Case Eyelid Surgery
Expert Advice from Plastic Surgeon
Ms Aoife Turner, London
In our new video, Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ plastic and aesthetic surgeon Ms Aoife Turner introduces the upper blepharoplasty ‘day case’ eyelid lift for rejuvenating the eye area.
“An upper eyelid lift essentially rejuvenates that whole area removing the excess skin and any prolapsed fat that is causing those issues.”
If you’re wondering whether it’s right for you, Aoife describes the typical patient who might consider or benefit from this procedure:
“Patients ranging from their 30s to their 60s plus who are complaining of having sagging drooping eyelids or heaviness when they wake up.
“A very common complaint is they can’t put on their makeup but their eyeliner smudges or it ends up here and it should be down here.”
What is the eyelid lift like?
In terms of what to expect, most people are surprised by how quick the procedure and recovery are, as Ms Turner elaborates:
“It’s quite a quick procedure can be done in local anaesthetic, which means there’s no general anaesthetic involved.
“The procedure itself takes under an hour. Down time is anywhere between three days and one week. You can have a little bit of swelling, a little bit of bruising and the stitches; once the stitches come out which happens on day seven you can start wearing your makeup again and get back to enjoying your eyes that you had 20 years ago.”
