Upper Eye Lift

What is an upper eye lift?

An upper eye lift is a surgical procedure where the excess skin of your upper eye lid is cut away and fat is removed or added to the lid to reduce the signs of ageing. This surgery could be paired with a lower eye lift, or an eye bag reduction for a full eye lift

Is an upper eye lift for you?

Before choosing to have an upper eye lift, you need to consider:

  • Is there a less invasive option for your issue?
  • Is there someone to help with you for the first days after surgery?
  • Can you take time off for recovery?
  • Are you in good health?
  • What prescriptions are you taking?

You should always speak to your surgeon about all of these things in the consultation, before going ahead with the surgery.
