Eyelid Surgery

Online Booking

As you age, the skin around your eyes naturally loses its elasticity and the muscles become looser. Your skin can develop into loose folds on your upper eyelids and deep creases under your lower lids making you appear tired and more aged depending on the severity.

As the muscles become looser, the fat around your eye may also bulge forward and make your lower eyelids appear baggy. Cosmetic eyelid surgery can remove the excess skin and fat from around your eyes giving you a more youthful appearance.

Cosmetic eyelid surgery (also known as a blepharoplasty) involves removing excess skin or fat from around the eyes to give a more alert and youthful appearance. Eyelid surgery can also help to reduce swelling (puffiness) around the eyes first thing in the morning. The procedure can be done on the upper and lower lids of the eyes.

At Kingsbridge Private Hospital you will meet with one of our expert cosmetic surgeons to discuss all elements of your procedure and aftercare.

At your consultation your surgeon will discuss options available to you which may involve trying alternatives before opting for surgery. If surgery is agreed as the best option of treatment at your appointment, expectations of the surgery will also be discuss in full. Surgery of this kind can’t remove wrinkles at the corners of your eyes (crow's feet) or the dark shadows under your eyes but other forms of treatment will be discussed with you.

What are the alternatives to surgery?

Wrinkles around your eyes can also be reduced by using botulinum A toxin (eg Botox), chemical peels or laser treatments which are non-invasive and usually require little or no recovery time when performed by a specialist.

If you have cosmetic problems with other parts of your face, for example if your eyebrows are also drooping, a forehead or brow lift may be suggested to you instead.

If you would like to book an appointment or require further information on the options available to you, please do not hesitate to contact our private patient booking team on the details above.

Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston, Kingsbridge Patient
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong, Kingsbridge Patient
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl, Kingsbridge Patient
"EXCELLENT - Had surgery today under the very caring Dr Stewart and her team. I cannot thank her enough for all she’s done for me over the past few months. Everything was explained to me in detail and all my care was considerate, professional and compassionate. Everyone I’ve met today has been beyond kind from Will the Anaesthetist, the Nurses and theatre staff, the catering staff - there has been no exception. Thank you all for taking care of me so well today - look forward to getting home tomorrow x" Mrs McAleavey, Kingsbridge Patient
