More Information

As you age, the upper eyelid skin sags from losing its elasticity and the muscles supporting the eyelids weaken. Folds of skin can gather and lead to the appearance of ‘droopy’ upper eyelids. Sometimes the skin can overhang the eyelashes and even affect your vision.

Your eyelids may look ‘baggy’ and seem worse in the morning. This is because fluid that is normally distributed throughout the body when upright tends to settle in areas where the skin is loose, such as the eyelids, when you are lying down.

An upper blepharoplasty is sometimes called an ‘eyelid lift’ or ‘eyelid removal’. It is a surgical procedure that involves removal of excess upper eyelid skin and aims to give an alert and youthful appearance. It can also reduce any visual problems as a result of the excess skin.

How is upper blepharoplasty surgery performed? 

The procedure is usually performed under local anaesthetic and you will be able to go home the same day. 

Skin markings are carefully made to mark out the excess skin. The local anaesthetic fluid is then injected into the area. An incision is made in the upper eyelid crease on each eyelid and an ellipse of skin is removed. Care is taken to preserve enough skin to allow normal eyelid closure following the procedure. Muscle and fat are not usually removed as they help maintain function and provide a more youthful appearance to the eye. 

The wound is cauterised to stop the bleeding and the wound is then closed with absorbable sutures. An antibiotic based ointment is applied to the wound a few times a day to promote healing and minimise infection.

Sujatha was very caring as I was extremely nervous about the procedure. Sujatha talked through everything that she was going to do and made sure I was completely happy before going ahead. Everything was fine and went really well. I am so happy with the result and wish I had done it a lot sooner.

Dr Sujatha Tadiparthi is a lovely person and a kind and skilled Dr. If ever I had any similar problems I would definitely go to Dr Tadiparthi, she didn't make me feel embarrassed about using her medical skills to deal with what in the scheme of things was a small problem. But it mattered to me and she did understand that. I came away feeling that everything was sorted kindly, swiftly, practically and safely. Thank you Dr Tadiparthi and team. It was great to meet you.

Mole Removal, October 2021.

I put a lot of time into researching a suitable surgeon. I saw reviews about Ms Tadiparthi and got in touch. Ms Tadiparthi is really down to earth, she's easy to talk to, she made me feel at ease and answered all my worries and concerns. She carried out the procedure and did amazing work. I am absolutely delighted with my breasts, I've a new found confidence….the scars are so neat ….. I couldn't recommend Ms Tadiparthi enough for a breast reduction, it took me years to pluck up the courage to do it and I knew from the first time I met her that I wanted her to carry out the procedure.
