Since the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the requests for upper eyelift surgery has become increasingly more common, Some thoughts on the reasons for this are the ‘Zoom Boom’ as faces are exposed digitally and on camera for meetings and communications on a daily basis.In cities like Manchester and Chester as well as others throughout the UK. At Reflect Clinic we have helped many patients increase their confidence and their quality of life through cosmetic surgery.
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 eyelifts as the excess skin rests on the lid, sometimes resting on the eyelashes and sometimes lowering the skin over the eye which can reduce vision.
What is an Upper Eyelift?
Upper eyelift surgery, medically known as blepharoplasty – bleph meaning eyes and plasty meaning the shaping is one of the best procedures you can undertake to help achieve a more youthful, invigorated look. Based on the amount of down time and recovery from upper eyelift surgery this procedure is perfect based on investment versus results of surgery.
The upper eyelift procedure itself takes only 45-50 minutes to complete. Whilst for some patients, nerves about the procedure are a factor in not opting for this procedure that you most want, rest assured that we have year’s of experience and lots of patients who have felt the same way as you. We will guide and support you through the operation to make sure that you feel comfortable and supported throughout. The procedure is carried out through local anaesthetic. With the upper blepharoplasty procedure there is no need to stay in overnight and you’ll be able to return home on the same day that you have the surgery. You’ll next visit us about 7 days later to remove your stitches. There will be some minor swelling at this point but you’ll still be able to see the positive benefits of this procedure.
