As we age the skin around our eyes loses a certain amount of elasticity and muscles begin to relax which can result in hooded upper eye lids. For some patients this can often be coupled with fat build-up which can contribute towards the appearance of tiredness and bags under the eyes. The reasons some people are more prone to saggy skin around the eye may simply be genetics, other contributing factors may also be stress or poor sleeping patterns sustained over a long period of time.
Upper eyelid surgery can be performed under local anesthetic and generally takes around 30-45 minutes. Lower eyelid surgery is often performed under sedation or general anaesthesia. Eyelid surgery is frequently performed in conjunction with non-surgical treatments, such as fillers, to give patients a more youthful or ‘fresh’ appearance.
Eyelid Surgery – the benefits
- Removal of a ‘tired look’ from around the eyes
- Contributes towards a more youthful face
- Can improve vision from the reduction of heavily hooded eyes
- Can improved self-confidence
Performed in one of our state-of-the-art clinics our experienced medical team are focused on providing you with the highest level of care and professionalism before, during and after your treatment. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask your surgeon as many questions as you wish to ensure eyelid or eye bag surgery is right for you.
The first step to a new and more confident you would be to make an appointment with La Belle Forme to allow us to carry out a full assessment of your current health, medical history and the overall look you want to achieve – and to explain what is involved in the procedure, recovery and on-going aftercare.
Before and After
Eyelid surgery can be transformational. Below is an example of such a transformation.
Successful eyelid surgery can make a big difference to the appearance of the eyes and surgery is generally very successful. It does, however, require a recovery period of around 1-to-4 weeks to make a full recovery, depending on the exact procedure.
Eyelift surgery starts from £1,995 – finance options available.
Not everybody is able to afford surgery in one single payment, that’s why we have partnered with Omni Capital Retail Finance to help patients get the surgery their desire today with the option to spread repayments between 12 and 48 months. Feel free to ask a staff member about payment choices.
