Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty

AKA Eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure that rejuvenates the eye area by removing excess skin and tissue, and tightening the muscles around the eye.

Just to reassure you, we will not share your details with anyone outside of The Westbourne Centre.


Some patients experience heavy drooping eye lids or hooding, whilst others find they have developed bags or deep creases under the eyes as they’ve aged. This is caused by muscle laxity which allows the fatty tissues that surround the eyes to protrude.

There are many ways of performing this surgery, and each method will depend on the individual circumstances of the patient. Following a consultation with one of our consultant plastic surgeons, they will be able to determine whether they need to reduce the skin, the fat, or a combination of both. They will also assess whether the best outcomes will come from performing surgery on the upper lids, lowers lids, a combination of both or you may even benefit from a combined facelift procedure.

Whilst the majority of patients benefit from successful natural results, eyelid surgery does not eradicate every crease or the natural discolouration that some patients suffer from. Laughter lines at the corner of the eyes will remain and can be treated with injections.
