Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) - removes excessive skin and bags from around the eyes.

They say the eyes are the gateway to the soul but as we age our eyes can certainly give away our advancing years! The onset of hooded eyes, excess skin, bagginess and lack of tightness and tone can all diminish that youthful and wide eyed look we once had. At Woodford Medical we can help with the very latest procedures and surgeries for eyes, which can restore your former pride in these most important of features.

With Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery the surgeon skilfully and precisely removes excess skin or fat from around the eyes. The result is noticeable and impressive: a more alert and youthful appearance. The procedure can be done either on the upper or lower eyelids and on eye bags.

At Woodford Medical, Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery is performed in the Minor Surgery Room within a sterile environment by Ophthalmic Surgeon Mr Sameh Hindi.

Mr Sameh Hindi

Mr Hindi is one of our most highly qualified surgeons and doctors at the clinic and a valued member of the team. He is a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh and Glasgow) and a fellow of The Royal College of Ophthalmologists. Mr Hindi has devoted his career to specialising in plastic surgery around the eyes and has many years of experience in working on the particularly intricate, precise and sensitive eye region.

What does the Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery procedure involve?

During your first consultation with Mr Hindi you will discuss the exact details of your procedure so you will know in advance what to expect. Your surgeon will explain what he plans to do, which may involve making tiny incisions along the natural lines of your eyelids or below your lower eyelashes. Your surgeon will ensure that any fine scars lie within the natural folds of your eyes. The excess fat and skin are then carefully removed from the eye and the incisions closed with the greatest care, precision and attention to detail. The whole procedure is performed under local anaesthetic. It will take approximately 2-3 weeks to recover and patients are advised to take a short holiday from work to allow for full recovery and healing.
