Complimentary Surgical Procedures to Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)


Find Eyelid Surgery Clinics in London & UK »

A Blepharoplasty will give specific cosmetic results.  Generally you can expect a reduction in puffiness around the eyes, a degree of tightening of the skin, and some reduction of creasing and wrinkling. 

However, if you want a more dramatic or youthful look, you may wish to consider other complimentary surgical procedures.  These may well be addressed in consultation with your surgeon when you are first discussing your goals and expectations.  It is not the intention to suggest the necessity of any of these additional procedures, but an awareness of them may help you make your final decision.  It may even be that the outcome you desire is not best achieved through a Blepharoplasty at all, but rather a different procedure altogether. 

Other surgical procedures that may enhance or compliment the effect of a Blepharoplasty include:

Brow Lift

More subtle than a full Rhytidextomy (face lift), a brow lift involves lifting the forehead skin to improve the appearance of sagging eyebrows, folds in the forehead and age-lines around the sides of the eyes.  It is done through a series of incisions hidden behind the hairline, cutting and lifting the skin itself and sometimes underlying fat and muscle to improve overall skin tone and tautness. 

Rhytidextomy (Face lift)

Although there are now various forms of ‘face lift’ available in the cosmetic surgery market, traditionally it involves incisions behind the hairline and the extraction and repositioning of skin, fat and muscle.  It is a more intensive procedure than a brow lift, and can have dramatically effective results.  However, it involves a longer recovery process and can be painful.  If you are considering a Rhytidextomy, you need to conduct extensive research into the wide range of ‘face lift’ options available.
