What is an Upper Blepharoplasty For?
Restore a vibrant and refreshed appearance to your upper eyelids through our specialised upper blepharoplasty procedure. Say goodbye to sagging skin and excess fat that can make you look tired and older than you feel. Our experienced surgeons skillfully remove the unwanted tissue, helping you achieve a naturally rejuvenated look.
What is Involved in the Procedure?
In an upper blepharoplasty, excess skin, muscle, and sometimes fat are carefully removed from the upper eyelids. This addresses issues like drooping, sagging, and puffiness, creating a more alert and youthful appearance. Depending on the specific case, incisions may be placed along natural creases or within the inner eyelid to minimize visible scarring. The skilled touch of our surgeons at New You Harley Street will bring out the natural beauty of your eyes, rejuvenating your overall facial expression and boosting self-confidence.

Good candidates for blepharoplasty include individuals who have droopy or sagging upper eyelids, puffy bags under their eyes, or wrinkles around their eyes. Patients should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure.
Most patients report mild discomfort and pain after the procedure, which can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses.
Recovery time varies but generally, patients are able to return to work within a week or two, although strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks. Patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort after the procedure, but these side effects are typically mild and can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses.
As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with blepharoplasty, including infection, bleeding, scarring, and changes in vision. However, these risks are rare, and most patients experience a safe and successful procedure.
Incisions are made in the natural creases of the eyelids to help hide any scarring, and the scars are typically very subtle and fade over time.
The results of blepharoplasty are long-lasting, and most patients enjoy the benefits of the procedure for many years. However, the natural ageing process will continue, and some patients may require a touch-up procedure in the future to maintain their results.
