(for heavy upper eyelid skin & baggy lower eyelid skin - blepharoplasty)
Norwich Cosmetic Clinic is a specialist in Blepharoplasty (eyelid reduction), a delicate operation to remove excess damaged skin and unsightly bulging fat around the eyes to create a more radiant and youthful appearance. It can also improve the visual field. Blepharoplasty can be performed for the upper and lower eyelids.
During the operation, your surgeon will make cuts around the natural lines of your eyelid and remove the excess damaged skin before sculpting the fat pad of the eyelid. Upper eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia. However, most lower eyelid blepharoplasties and combined upper and lower lid blepharoplasty are performed under general anaesthesia.
During standard eyelid operations, other necessary adjustments might be made such as internal lifting of the eyebrow, upper part of the cheek and lifting of the corners of the eyelid with or without tightening them. Naturally this operation is more extensive and time-consuming but the cosmetic result is superior.
Other surgical procedures (eyelid and facial):
- Ptosis, drooping upper lids due to muscle weakness
- Gold weight implants for facial nerve weakness and inability to close the eye
Tightening of droopy lower lids
- Excision of lid cancer and reconstruction together with full thickness skin graft
- Excision of moles, warts, cysts and other lesions of the face
Eyes can indicate age more than any other part of the face. They also show our emotion and we use them to communicate, so eyelid surgery can have amazing effects on your overall quality of life and sense of wellbeing. The process of blepharoplasty removes some of the excess skin and tissue to tighten the area around the eye and create a fresher, more youthful look.
