Upper Blepharoplasty at The Door W4
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid or eye lift surgery, is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the eyelids to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The procedure can address droopy eyelids, puffy eyes and wrinkles around the eyes, helping rejuvenate and reverse the look of tired, sagging eyelids.
What is an Upper Blepharoplasty?
An Upper Blepharoplasty, commonly known as an 'eyelid lift', is a procedure that involves removing excess skin, fat, or muscle from the upper eyelids to correct drooping or sagging upper eyelids, which many of our clients find contribute to a tired appearance.
If you're looking for a solution for puffy eyes or a saggy eye remedy, an Upper Blepharoplasty could be the ideal treatment for you. At your consultation with one of our expert surgeons you will be advised on the best treatment plan for you to help determine if an Upper Blepharoplasty is right for you.
Why Might I Need an Upper Blepharoplasty?
Commonly as we age, skin loses its elasticity and becomes looser. Loose skin surrounding the eyes can lead to the eyelids looking heavy, creating that 'hooded eyes' look. Heavy eyelids can contribute to an older looking appearance and can cause difficulty when applying eye makeup. In some severe cases extremely loose skin can effect the vision and become a real source of discomfort. The Blepharoplasty surgery can help to create a more youthful, brighter eye and relieve discomfort from heavy skin pressing down on the eyelids.
During an Upper Blepharoplasty our expert Blepharoplasty surgeon Dr. Rohit Seth will use a local anaesthesia to numb the area, and will then make an incision in the crease of your eyelid where the skin would naturally fold. This means that any scarring is hidden in the crease of your eyelid leaving you with the most natural looking results possible.
He then removes any excess fat, tissue and muscle from the eyelid to leave you with much more lifted eyes. Finally, he'll delicately stitch up the small incision and get you ready for recovery. An Upper Blepharoplasty is one of the best ways to remove puffy eyes without needing ongoing maintenance or touch-ups.

During the actual procedure, Dr. Rohit Seth uses a local anaesthetic around the eyes to numb the area, so the procedure is not painful at all. Whilst there may be some discomfort during recovery, it is generally quite minimal and can be easily managed at home.
An Upper Blepharoplasty generally takes 1-2 weeks to heal. Every individual is different, so be sure to listen to your surgeon's advice for the best possible healing journey.
There is minimal scarring after an Upper Blepharoplasty and the small scar that is left is hidden in the crease of the eyelid, so won't be noticeable at all. Some patients have actually reported that their scars faded away completely over time.
An Upper Blepharoplasty produces long-lasting results, but it doesn't stop the aging process. Instead, your skin will age from it's newly rejuvenated state!
An Upper Blepharoplasty procedure takes an average of 1 hour to complete. Every individual is different so some procedures may last a little longer and others may be a little shorter. Dr. Rohit Seth will advise you throughout the process to ensure you are as comfortable as possible.
Whilst an Upper Blepharoplasty doesn't directly influence the brows, many patients find that removing the excess skin of the upper eyelid automatically gives the appearance of a brow lift too.
After an Upper Blepharoplasty, you should avoid wearing contact lenses for approximately 2 weeks. This is to allow the eyes to heal as quickly as possible without the risk of infection. Speak to your surgeon if you have concerns about not being able to wear contact lenses for 2 weeks and they will be able to help provide some advice.
We would advise taking 2 weeks off work to recover from your Upper Blepharoplasty procedure, depending on the nature of your job. You won't be able to drive for a number of days after the surgery but those who work from home may be able to return to work sooner.
Every individual is different, so speak to your surgeon about the recovery process for a more in-depth view of what recovery might look like for you.
