Eyelid Surgery or Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, eyelid or eyebag surgery can help restore a more youthful appearance by tightening droopy or hooded eyelids, restoring the smooth line of the eyelids, and removing or moving fatty pouches beneath the eyes or "bags". It is often our eyelids which show the signs of ageing first which is why this can be the first cosmetic treatment which a man or a woman might choose.

Eyelid surgery is generally performed under a local anaesthetic, but some patients are given sedation via an intravenous drip or a general anaesthetic.

Private costs for blepharoplasty can range from approximately £1,500 - £2,500 for upper lid surgery only, £2,000 - £3,000 for lower lid surgery only, and £3,000 - £4,500 for upper and lower lid combined.
