Upper Blepharoplasty

Droopy eyelids are a common concern caused by natural skin ageing. As collagen and elastin decline, the delicate skin around the eyes becomes thinner and less able to bounce back. Weakened skin is then more likely to stretch, resulting in sagging and a droopy appearance.

An upper blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that helps to reduce droopy eyelids and restore a more rested look to the face. This is a day case procedure that is performed using a local anaesthetic, and can address both of the eyes.

A cut is made along the natural crease of the upper eyelid to help make scarring less noticeable. From here Miss Breahna will trim away any excess skin before repositioning the skin and applying small stitches to close the incision. This procedure is often more effective than taking a non-surgical approach, and provides a longer-term solution to the appearance of ageing eyes. You may need to arrange for someone to take you home as the eye area will be tender, swollen and bruised, and the eyes will also be sensitive to light.

It may take up to 2 weeks for the side effects to subside, when the results of your procedure will become visible. Removing excess skin from above the eye will take away the tired look that droopy eyelids cause, and may have a positive effect on the overall facial profile. In some cases, upper blepharoplasty has also helped to improve a person’s quality of vision when overstretched skin has started to cover the eye. Upper blepharoplasty can be performed alongside other anti-ageing procedures to help restore a youthful look to the entire face.

Frequently asked questions

At Chester Cosmetic Surgery, Miss Breahna will establish your suitability for this procedure at a comprehensive consultation. She often recommends this procedure when the skin on the upper eyelid has become stretched and is sagging lower than is considered the norm. 

A procedure of this nature is considered to be safe for patients with droopy eyelids, and Miss Breahna takes every step to ensure her patient’s well-being.

Upper blepharoplasty is performed using a local anaesthetic at Chester Cosmetic surgery. The injections are made with tiny needles, causing minimal discomfort and are generally well tolerated. Oral pain relief will be prescribed while the eyes are healing.

Immediately after the procedure the eyes will feel sore, and swelling and bruising will develop. Ice packs applied intermittently and sleeping propped up will help to reduce swelling. You may find it helps to wear sunglasses while the eyes feel sensitive. There will be a permanent scar but this will be hidden within the eye’s natural crease.

It may take several weeks for swelling and bruising to totally disappear, which is when you will start to see the full effects of the procedure. Scarring may look particularly red for up to 6 months when it will fade and blend in better with the surrounding skin.
