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, or 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 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 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.

The end result I have is amazing and completely natural.
Just to say a BIG thank you to you and your team for all the wonderful help and support you have given me over the last 1 ½ years. You have given me back my confidence thank you.
I was very happy with the care I got from Mr Banwell, his team and the staff at the McIndoe Surgical Centre. Mr Banwell and his team were extremely friendly and quick to meet my needs at all times. The team were very professional and always made me feel at ease and welcome at all my consultations and throughout my stay at the surgical centre. The outcome of my surgery is amazing! I am extremely happy with the results I got; it turned out better than I thought. The surgery has really helped my confidence and way of life and I am very grateful for that. Mr Banwell is a fantastic surgeon with a very friendly and professional approach, which is wonderful. I would definitely, without hesitation, recommend Mr Banwell and his team to others considering cosmetic surgery.
I consider myself blessed when I came across you Mr Banwell. You performed my operation almost a year ago which I am pleased to say was a GREAT success. I am more than pleased with the results, my whole shape is so much more defined and I love it. From the first time I met you at my initial consultation, you put me at ease immediately and never pressured me at any point to undertake the operation, you also never tired of my questions and you offered me only professional sound guidance and advice. You as a surgeon I have found to be completely transparent, knowledgeable, educated beyond most surgeons (that I came across) and totally professional, your skills and attention to detail are second to none.
I was referred to Mr Paul Banwell in February 2010 when I was diagnosed with an advanced melanoma in the lymph nodes in my left groin. At my consultation he explained in layman’s terms my diagnosis and all details regarding the operation I needed. Mr Banwell operated on 27th February 2010. The operation was a complete success – he has removed all the cancer as subsequent scans have proven. I then spent seven days recuperating in the McIndoe Surgical Centre in East Grinstead under Mr Banwell’s and his specialised teams care. They were all wonderful. Mr Banwell was at my bedside every morning to check my progress. His kindness and caring knew no bounds. He made all my fears and anxieties groundless and replaced them with optimism for a great feature and my aftercare was first class. I would recommend this highly professional, dedicated, humane family man to all who need any medical intervention. He is the best. How do you thank a man who gives you your life back? There are no adequate words.
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!
