Dawn Ward’s Eyelift

You may have seen in the news this week that Dawn Ward has treated herself to an upper eyelift which was performed by Gerard Lambe recently under Local Anaesthetic (sometimes called LA or while awake!)

As you can see, comments from Instagram followers by recent posts of Dawn’s because of her new resemblance to her daughters, Darby Ward and Taylor Ward, who are 20+ years younger.

Just look at Dawn’s Instagram page to see the host of positive comments as well as seeing for yourself!

News broke by the Femail section of the Daily Mail yesterday morning and since then we have been absolutely inundated by this procedure which is the fourth most popular cosmetic surgery in the United State of America. As we all know, the UK tends to follow on fairly quickly from these American trends.

This was closely followed by the MEN and OK coverage, which have highlighted the brilliant results and how much younger and better Dawn Ward looks these days.

The Benefits of an Upper Eyelift

As has been well documented, the results can be dramatic, especially if there is a lot of excess skin covering the eyelid.  In this case the effect is that the years have literally rolled back on the eye area and the eye is returned to it’s former wide eyed look which is how most people look in their youth.

Other benefits include the low down time for this procedure. This means that the operation can be performed in just 45 minutes so there is no need to stay over night in hospital so you can return to your own bed, in the comfort of your own home where you will feel most safe and relaxed so you can recover well.

There is also a fast recovery time as the eye area has a good blood supply which means that the area will heal relatively quickly as opposed to areas of the body that don’t have as good a network of healing blood vessels.

This means that the cost to you is also reduced because there is no overnight cost to the hospital and the procedure is fast and straightforward in the hands of a skilled Cosmetic Surgeon of course.

Who is a Good Candidate for an Upper Eyelift?

Upper Blepharoplasty is the medical name for the operation to remove excess skin on the upper eyelids which lead to a “hooded” appearance on the eyelids. as the excess skin rests on the lid, sometimes resting on the eyelashes and sometimes even lowering the skin over the eye which can even reduce vision.

Upper Eyelift Surgery Procedure

Dawn Ward said

“I had a local anaesthetic and the whole procedure took about 45 minutes. I needed a good week of taking it easy afterwards and while I have to admit I looked like I had done a round in the ring with Tyson Fury for a few days”

However, the swelling and bruising soon settled down and the results are amazing.

Dawn Ward said

“The results are fantastic once the stitches dissolved and it all healed fully.

“It has massively boosted my confidence and I am really pleased with the results.”

But having any surgery is something she stresses all women should think through very carefully.

Comments

There have been hundreds of comments from fans and well wishers on instagram from recent posts and we’ve quoted some below.

“Dawn Ward you look amazing, you look like sisters”  Julia Howat

“You look like sisters and Dawn is so young looking”  Colette Quirk

“Sisters not Mum and Daughter, Stunning” Hayley Berry

The Best Cosmetic Surgery

Dawn Ward’s responses to her cosmetic surgery are

“I’m thrilled with the results – it’s a really brilliant procedure but surgery is surgery and so I had to go to someone I trusted and consultant Mr Lambe is very skilled and experienced.”

“I kept it quiet at first and didn’t tell anyone but then, once the bruising healed I couldn’t hide it as all my friends and the girls from the show kept saying, ‘hey you look great!’”

In general this is a good indicator of having excellent cosmetic surgery, if friends and family remark on how much better you look, but cannot tell exactly what you have had done! The look will therefore be natural and you will not have the signature “wind tunnel” look prevalent of plastic surgery in the 1980s. The whole trend and effect these days is for natural looking surgery which enhances your own looks and is harmonious with the rest of your face and body.

If you look better and are more happy and confident then it shows in everything you do, which is why we feel so lucky to do the job we do, to enable patients to go on and live their best life and be happy.
