Initial Consultation with your GP

It may be worth discussing surgery with your GP.  If you feel that your physical or mental wellbeing is compromised by the appearance or condition of your eyelids, you may be able to appeal to the NHS.  After a thorough process your GP can decide whether or not you are potentially eligible for this procedure, and can refer you to a cosmetic surgeon.

Incidentally, irrespective of whether or not you think you may be eligible for consideration of NHS funding, it is a good idea to have at least a preliminary conversation with your GP if you are considering any kind of cosmetic surgery.  They can often give you impartial advice ahead of your initial consultation with your potential cosmetic surgeon.

If the NHS is not a viable option, then there are other financial routes to consider.  One is personal savings; another is a bank loan.  Many private cosmetic practices will offer competitive payment plans, often with discounts for specific procedures or instalment repayment options.  Bear in mind that although the initial consultation is often free, after that most cosmetic surgery is a fairly expensive undertaking.  You need to be extremely diligent and alert to any hidden costs; when signing anything, make sure you are completely aware of the detail, and be prepared to fund any additional or follow up procedures that may be needed if the initial operation doesn’t achieve exactly what you hoped for.  This will be rare: but it is worth considering that a ‘safety-net’ sum of money may be needed at a future date.
