Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes, treating:
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
- Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
Your plastic surgeon will carefully evaluate your facial anatomy and will discuss what procedures might best remedy your concerns.

Every year thousands of men undergo successful cosmetic surgery and are happy with the outcomes. However as with any surgery you should be aware of potential risks. These will be fully discussed with you. It’s important that you address all your questions with your surgeon.
The information on our website is general in nature. It will not apply to each and every patient and is not intended as a substitute for medical advice.
We advise you to speak to a consultant and see a surgeon in-person to assess what surgery is most suitable for you. Plastic and cosmetic surgery results can vary significantly between patients and all surgery carries risks, some minor some serious. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
