Leading consultant Paul Banwell offers blepharoplasty surgery at his London clinic for patients wanting to aesthetically augment their eyelids, and the eye region of the face.
Upper blepharoplasty surgery is one the most common procedures that Mr Banwell performs and it is associated with high patient satisfaction, a rapid recovery period and excellent results.
Mr Banwell is one of the UK’s leading plastic surgeons and a specialist oculoplastic surgeon. In your initial consultation he will discuss your aims and objectives with you – we believe in a bespoke approach to all aesthetic eyelid surgery and facial plastic surgery.

The aim of blepharoplasty eyelid surgery, or reconstructive eyelid surgery, is to provide a fresh and more youthful appearance to the upper and lower eyelids of male and female patients.
It is an aesthetic surgery that assists in improving drooping eyelids, saggy upper eyelid skin, and can remove redundant upper eyelid skin and fatty tissue that may be obscuring vision. In lower eyelid blepharoplasty surgery, we are able to tighten any laxity of the lower eyelid, remove eye bags and remove any excess skin.
Droopy eyelid surgery, or ptosis surgery is also available. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is another type of lower eyelid surgery that is often prescribed.
For most patients, cosmetic eyelid surgery is usually performed under general aesthetic, although the option of local anaesthetic is there for those who are not squeamish.
Upper eyelid surgery takes an ellipse of skin, muscle, or underlying fat which is then excised by an external means of incision before being stitched back together. For lower eyelid blepharoplasty surgery, the skin is lifted from the lid by the surgeon so that excess fat may be removed.
Following lifting, the skin elasticity is re-draped and the appropriate amount of excess skin removed. Any eyelid laxity within the upper lids or lower lid can be corrected by a tightening procedure (canthopexy).
The recovery period is fairly straightforward although swelling can sometimes persist for some weeks (more so with lower blepharoplasty procedure.) After your reconstructive surgery it is recommended to sleep on your back on pillows and to avoid bending and lifting. We also recommend using witch-hazel eye pads to help reduce swelling and bruising; as the eyes may be sensitive after such operations and surgical procedures. Wearing sunglasses indoors and out may help reduce sensitivity.

My whole experience was fantastic from start to finish and I am extremely happy with my results. If I had any questions I also got a satisfactory answer and quickly. I would recommend Mr Banwell to anyone who was interested, and I would and probably will be back!
My care was efficient and well taken care of, the outcome of my surgery couldn’t be more perfect, I’m so pleased. My surgery has given me a new found confidence in my body in a way I never thought I could feel.
Procedure was quick, pain fee and I was made to feel at ease. I would highly recommend Mr Banwell, he provided an honest opinion of the result and all the options. I barely have a scar to speak of! Great result.
Mr Banwell’s care of my daughter was excellent – he is a great communicator with children. The hospital staff was very helpful and efficient. The surgery is very neat with minimal scarring – I’m sure it will make a big difference to her life as she grows up.
