Blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery, commonly referred to as eyelid surgery is a simple surgical procedure designed to reduce drooping, remove eye bags and tighten any creases and folds in the upper or lower eyelids, and lift skin surrounding the eyes.
A blepharoplasty should not be confused with brow lift surgery which is a cosmetic procedure designed to raise the eyebrows and reduce frown lines.
There are two main types of blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery; upper and lower. Upper eyelid surgery serves to tighten or remove excess skin and tissue around the eyelids and can also correct upper eyelid folds that droop over the eye (hooded eyelids). Lower eyelid surgery, sometimes known as eye bag or eyebags removal surgery, is a simple, safe and quick procedure to remove excess fat and skin from around the eye. Please download a blepharoplasty brochure for more information and see frequently asked questions below.
As part of the Cosmetic Surgery Partners patient journey, we provide a psychological assessment from our blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery clinic before upper or lower eyelid surgery. This step is to prepare the patient, enhance their blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery journey and support them psychologically if there are any mental health concerns.

We find that for some patients, the best results can be achieved by combining upper or lower eyelid surgery with a facelift, as both operations address different portions of the face. The facelift can be performed at the same time. In some case we find that combining non-surgical treatments will give the patient added benefit. Our surgeons will be able to advise you fully during your initial consultation.
No, neither upper nor lower eyelid surgery tackles the ‘crow’s feet’ appearance of lines around the outer part of the eye. These, however can be reduced using non-surgical injectable, a simple non-surgical treatment which can be combined with your blepharoplasty surgery. You will be advised of what options are available to you during your initial consultation at our eyelid cosmetic surgery clinic in London
Most patients find that initial swelling settles around a week after eyelid surgery and once fully healed scars fade leaving natural looking results which are hard to notice. Whether you have opted for lower eyelid surgery or upper eyelid surgery, we are sure you will be pleased with the result.
Blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery as a facial rejuvenation technique isn’t exclusive to the older generations. If you’re experiencing sagging eyelids or pronounced eye bags in your 20s and 30s, surgery is an excellent solution and often the only option.
It is also worth noting that our policy at Cosmetic Surgery Partners is not to operate on any patients under the age of 18, conversely there is no upper age limit, so long as the patient is in good health.
All consultations from our blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery clinic in London are obligation free and even if you do decide to have surgery the very same day as you consultation we enforce a strict 2-week cooling-off period before any surgery takes place. The 2-week pre-surgery period is a good time for the patient to decide if eyelid surgery is really the correct decision for you.
