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.

Mr Paul Banwell
19 Harley Street
During the time I have been in the care of Paul and the team I have been treated extremely well and very professionally, I could not have asked for better care. Paul was extremely caring and considerate throughout this time and has put me at ease during any procedures that I have had carried out. I trust his judgement completely and recommended Paul to a close family member who had a similar problem.
I have been treated by Mr Banwell for excision of a nasal Squamous Cell Carcinoma and approximately 20 forehead solar keratoses by Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). During this period I have received outstanding care and attention. He and his team are very friendly and efficient. His surgical skills are exceptional.
I am totally content with the outcome of the surgery and treatment of my conditions and would wholly recommend him and his team to others. In fact, I already have!
I read about Mr Banwell on the internet and after speaking to him on the telephone, when he explained how he would help, I felt confident that I had found a solution. Mr Banwell gave my daughter a course of epiduo and this made an improvement quite quickly. He then suggested a course of Tetralysal and this has now completely transformed her skin. She is acne free.
I was very happy with the care during the surgery and the team were friendly and efficient. I was very happy with the outcome of the surgery and I would recommend Mr Banwell to others.
Mr Banwell provides an excellent service in pre-operation information, as well as total expertise and attention to detail in surgery. He was very informative and helpful after care. I received excellent and sympathetic nursing care and anaesthetist. Mr Banwell has a very helpful practice manager and assistant. My eyes have regained an ‘openness’ similar to my younger years. I no longer look tired. I would highly recommend Mr Banwell to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.
My whole experience was made comfortable by warm, friendly and welcoming nursing staff. Mr Banwell has a lovely bedside manner and was more than happy to discuss my worried however strange. At 37 years of age and after 4 children I never thought I would have the tummy of an 18 year old again, Mr Banwell is a very clever man.
