The ageing process results in looseness of skin of the upper eyelids that can give a hooded appearance. People often notice that their eye shadow is more difficult to apply due to the folds of skin in the upper eyelids. The upper blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove the excess skin from the upper eyelids. This results in a more youthful appearance to the eyes and gives an eyelid lift.
The procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic which means you will be awake during the operation. A few injections help numb the area that is being treated. Our surgeons are all fully GMC registered and qualified consultant plastic surgeons. This is a day case procedure that will take about 45-60 minutes and performed in our minor operations theatre in our clinic located in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
