What is the treatment?
GMC’s upper eyelid blepharoplasty is performed in our clinic under a local anaesthetic. This means we can negate any risks associated with the side effects of a general anaesthesia.
How is it performed?
Your cosmetic professional will map out the desired amount of excess skin that is to be removed prior to making the first incision. This is an important factor in the process to allow for the best symmetry possible.
During the procedure, this excess skin is removed. Some muscle and/or excess fat deposits may also be removed to ensure the best cosmetic results.
A subcuticular stitch is used for the upper bleph, which sits neatly below the skin’s surface and is generally disguised nicely along the crease of the eyelid.
Patients are genuinely delighted immediately post-treatment, most can’t quite believe that they are seeing their eyelids again! The results continue to improve over the coming weeks. Some bruising and swelling can be expected post procedure, however, most patients find their recovery quite comfortable.
The stitches are removed after one week and most patients return to work within two weeks.
This procedure is equally popular for both our male and female patients, regardless of age.
