TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Lower Eyelid Surgery or Lower Blepharoplasty is an operation to remove sagging skin and bags from below the eyes. The surgery reduces under-eye puffiness to leave the eyes refreshed and rejuvenated.

At Bella Vou, a Cheek Lift is often performed as part of Lower Eyelid Surgery. A Cheek Lift treats flattened or drooping cheeks and reduces under-eye hollows or puffiness. The surgery also addresses deep lines between the nose and mouth, reduces facial flatness, and restores a youthful contour.

Can I know how my results are likely to look?

Bella Vou has an extensive album of images of people who have recently undergone Blepharoplasty. This can help you more closely appreciate your likely results.

While everyone heals differently, the surgeon's aim is your satisfaction. Cosmetic surgery is a balance of both form and function, and the specialists at Bella Vou are tireless in the pursuit of excellence.

During your consultation, your surgeon will help you have a clear understanding of your likely results. So, while they can't show your exact outcome, they will be able to provide you with a clearer picture of the process.

Is it safe to have Anti-Wrinkle Injections with Eyelid Surgery?

If you are having Eyelid Surgery, you should avoid Anti-Wrinkle Injections on the forehead, glabella (the area between the eyebrows, under the eyebrows and crow's feet. Injections can change the overall amount of skin laxity and give a false impression of the amount of skin available. So it's essential to avoid them before your consultation and before surgery. It is, however, okay to have Anti-Wrinkle Injections immediately after the surgery or even on the day of surgery.

I have had Eyelid Surgery before. Can it be repeated?

In some people, the eyelid skin is very soft and can stretch again over time. Further skin may need to be removed to maintain the cosmetic result. Sometimes the brow drops, giving the appearance of loose skin around the eyes. If this is the case, a Brow Lift may be more appropriate than revision Eyelid Surgery. Your surgeon will be able to assess your eyes at consultation and recommend the best treatment programme for your needs.

5 STEP
JOURNEY

YOUR SIMPLE 5 STEP JOURNEY

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert, accredited cosmetic surgeon with no obligation to proceed to treatment.

The consultation is an opportunity to discuss the concerns you have with your eyes. The surgeon will examine the degree of skin laxity and wrinkles in the lower eyelid and assess whether the muscle is loose and protruding. They’ll also check if there’s any fat behind the muscle pushing through, which can make the eyes look heavy. Bella Vou will then give you an impartial professional opinion about whether Blepharoplasty can help you achieve the appearance you want. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘We make sure that we advise people correctly about whether surgery is right for them. We treat everyone as if they were our family. At Bella Vou, we never pressurise people or try to sell procedures. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your surgeon

You will be offered a further appointment with your consultant before proceeding to Blepharoplasty. This will give you a chance to find out more about the procedure and to ask any questions you may have.

Step 3. Preparation for Lower Blepharoplasty

You’ll be given individual pre-operative advice to reduce your chance of bleeding or infection and support your healthy recovery.

It’s important to let your surgeon know if you’re on any prescription or over-the-counter medications. You may be asked to stop taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory tablets, which can increase the risk of bruising. It's also essential to stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes before and after surgery because they can interrupt healthy healing.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre. As you'll be awake for your procedure, your surgeon will greet you, explain what will happen, and offer reassurance throughout the operation.

Step 4. What happens during Lower Blepharoplasty surgery?

The surgeon will make precise markings on the lower lids to guide the surgery. They will cleanse the skin around your eyes and inject local anaesthetic. The area rapidly becomes numb, you may feel movement and pressure, but the procedure will be pain-free.

The surgeon makes an incision just under the eyelashes so that it is hidden in the natural laughter lines. Your consultant will carefully lift and reposition the fat pads, tighten the muscles, and excise extra skin, removing bags and smoothing the contour between the lower eyelid and the cheeks.

The surgeon will stitch the wound closed using fine sutures, which may be absorbable or non-absorbable depending on your skin and the extent of surgery.

Step 5. Recovery from a Blepharoplasty

You will usually be able to go home on the day of the procedure, with no drains or drips. Swelling and bruising are normal after Blepharoplasty because the skin is thin and delicate. The staff at Bella Vou will offer analgesia, carefully monitor your recovery, and provide support every step of the way.

After one week, the nurse and wound care specialist will check your scars and remove any sutures. Most people find that bruising and swelling fades by a week to ten days; the team will offer guidance about how to safely conceal any bruising as you recover.

At around six weeks, your surgeon will check your progress and ensure that you are healthy and happy with your results. However, the Bella Vou staff are always available if you have any questions or concerns between appointments.
