Upper eyelid lift
Here is a case of a successful interior designer who initially saw us reporting dissatisfaction with upper eyelid heaviness. Very well informed about his aims and objectives and certainly on the younger end of our spectrum of patients, he was after a light touch, natural looking opening up of his upper eyelid heaviness, while showing absolutely no evidence of surgery.
In the after image, six weeks later, we both felt that mission was very much accomplished!
The magic in blepharoplasty surgery in the detail: Super precise interventions leading to significantly more youthful appearance with zero evidence of any intervention having taken place.

Here’s a guide to what you can expect in the first few weeks after an Upper Blepharoplasty.

The eyes are our face’s main aesthetic unit. It is what defines us the most. Aesthetic eye surgery is all about retaining one’s identity. Expect a younger, fresher version of yourself with absolutely no signs of surgery.
Make sure to see a specialist surgeon who will work with you to clearly define your goals.
This patient of ours came with clear expectations of wanting to retain her attractive upper lid fullness. She underwent a volume-preserving upper eyelid blepharoplasty and achieved exactly that, with a fresher, less tired version of herself.
The ABC of our approach to upper blepharoplasty:
- Still look like yourself
- Natural results
- Zero signs of surgery
Typically, a small procedure with a big effect as this upper blepharoplasty patient exemplifies.

Dr Nick Koutroumanos enjoys looking after detail-oriented individuals seeking specific alternations to their eyes, requiring minute surgical adjustments.
The precision required and the results that can be achieved are gratifying.
This patient visited us in London specifically desiring a symmetric upper eyelid show, without any evidence of surgery or the loss of her ethnic eyelid characteristics.
We carried out a right upper eyelid crease lowering and left sided blepharoplasty under local anaesthesia, and we are both delighted with her outcome.
In aesthetic eye surgery, even small changes can make a great difference.
Upper & lower eyelid lift
Aesthetic eyelid surgery is a timeless option for addressing concerns that affect you. Our approach to surgical planning is always individualised and considers your age and specific requirements.
We understand that male patients particularly value natural-looking outcomes, and we are committed to ensuring that no traces of surgery are ever evident. Here’s one of our recent patients, a busy professional, who had been grappling with the frustration of sagging and puffy eyelids. Despite putting off the decision for quite some time, he ultimately opted for treatment.
The results, presented here at 3-weeks post-surgery, have exceeded his expectations, leading to a restoration of his confidence and a renewed sense of satisfaction. He has continued to improve since.
Surgery: Bilateral upper and lower blepharoplasty and ptosis repair
Duration: 90 minutes
MORE ABOUT UPPER BLEPHAROPLASTY
Upper eyelid lift & removal of xanthelasma
This lovely gentleman came to us to refresh his eye area by removing the xanthelasma and excess skin on his upper eyelids.
(Xanthelasma are yellowish bumps on or near the eyelids formed by cholesterol/fatty deposits that build up under the skin.)
Dr Koutroumanos performed a bilateral xanthelasma removal and upper blepharoplasty under local anaesthetic. The combined procedure took 60 minutes to complete.
A carefully constructed blepharoplasty can incorporate the fatty deposit lesions in a way that removal of the lesions and rejuvenation of the eye area, were achieved with a single procedure.
Very much like rhinoplasty and aesthetic breast surgery, Upper Blepharoplasty objectives vary between patients and therefore need careful alignment prior to surgery. Talk to your surgeon about the type of eyes you wish to have and bring photographs in your younger years.
Trends in upper lid aesthetic surgery keep changing, but the only trend which matters is your own expectations.
Thank you to our wonderful patient for sharing her images.
