Eyelid Surgery Leeds

Eyelid surgery Leeds offers a transformative solution to wrinkles and sagging skin affecting the upper and lower lids caused by ageing. Wrinkles often shows more around the eyes, causing droopy eyelids and under-eye bags. Eyelid surgery offers an effective solution to address these concerns.

The procedure

What’s Involved

During your consultation, we’ll conduct a thorough eye examination and tailor the approach to your specific needs. We may address either the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. When focusing on the upper eyelid, a small incision is carefully made along the eye’s natural crease to eliminate excess skin and tissue. Lower eyelid surgery, on the other hand, involves an incision along the eyelash line to remove surplus skin.

Eyelid surgery Leeds delivers long-lasting results, frequently eliminating the necessity for further procedures. The tightening of the skin in this area can remarkably revitalise the upper face, and the surgeon may also suggest improving the area under the eyes, known as the tear trough, using a fat transfer procedure. This can greatly enhance the overall aesthetics of this region.

Key Considerations

Treatment Duration

Eyelid surgery, also referred to as blepharoplasty, typically lasts between 1 to 2 hours, depending on your unique situation. While this surgery can deliver long-lasting results, the natural ageing process will continue over time. This means that the signs of ageing around the eyes may reappear at some point in the future, though it might not happen for several years, and it may not necessarily align with your actual age.


Type Of Anaesthesia

The choice of anesthesia, either local with sedation or general anesthesia, will be carefully determined during your consultation to ensure it aligns with your best interests. Additionally, you may be advised to discontinue specific medications starting two weeks before the surgery. Depending on the type of anaesthesia selected, fasting from the night before the procedure might also be recommended.

Aftercare Requirements

Upon your discharge, we will provide you with an eye ointment for cleansing. It’s essential to maintain dry eyes for approximately 48 hours. If you experience any post-treatment discomfort, over-the-counter pain relief can be used. We’ll use dissolvable stitches, and your healing progress will be closely monitored through a series of follow-up appointments.

Back To Work (Recovery)

It’s important to note that swelling and bruising may persist for 1-2 weeks, potentially requiring some time off from work. Additionally, please be mindful that driving won’t be possible for several days, and you should steer clear of strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for up to 2 weeks.


Treatment Cost

The cost of your treatment may depend on a number of factors. We consider whether or not we’ll be addressing both the upper and lower eyelids, approaching each eye individually. The below is a guide to pricing, and may be subject to change.
