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.
If you are interested in blepharoplasty treatment then please do phone the office on 01342330302 for further information, or to book an initial consultation.

A perfect blemish free outcome!
I am so happy with the results of my surgery.
I liked what was written about Mr Banwell and that he was a family man with lots of experience specialising in the operation I wanted. All my expectations were met and at my consultations any worried and questions were answered. I felt Mr Banwell took away any worries I had and has a very kind manner. I would recommend Mr Banwell and say that you are in a high standard of care and well looked after. I had an enjoyable time and was looked after in every way and Mr Banwell and his team are professional in every way.
I am writing to let you know that I was very pleased with the recent surgery to remove several moles on my face, neck and back. The whole process was carried out very efficiently. The mole on my face has almost completely disappeared already. The post-operative information was most helpful, although the leaflet I was given varied slightly from your verbal instructions. However, you accurately told me what to expect. I have no hesitation in recommending your work to other people. The on site staff were all friendly and helpful throughout.
The consultation was conducted quickly, professionally but Mr Banwell also made me feel as if any question I may have wouldn’t not be too small or insignificant for him to take the time to answer. He left me feeling fully informed with both the pros and cons of any form of elective surgery but also that my worries were normal and that he would be able to assist me with my desired outcomes. His team were caring and professional making me feel that they were actually interested and were able to accommodate my dates when making the initial consultation booking. Prompt returning of calls, flexibility in booking of appointments friendliness, informative, caring and professional from the initial telephone call, the surgery, follow up appointments right through to my final appointment made me feel that my care, personal views and worries were important to them at all times. You can trust him to always be honest with you about the possible problems and outcomes. Overall experience with Mr Banwell and his team? Amazing! I just wish I’d not waited so many years to have this procedure done; I have my life back and it’s amazing to be able to walk into any shop and buy clothes that fit in my actual size and not 5 dress sizes larger just to fit my bust in. With the Upper Blepharoplasty everyone in my family says that I now look so much brighter and not tired, others I meet just tell me I look really great and ask if I’ve just had a holiday. Mr Banwell Thank You for all that you did for me.
I was delighted with my care, it was faultless in all aspects.
