Discover the secret to the beauty of your eyes with eyelid surgery

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Case Studies

Patient file

A young woman felt self-conscious about her eyelids. The extra skin fold made her eyes look puffy and gave her a constantly tired expression. Even when she felt well-rested, people would comment on her looking upset. This motivated her to seek a consultation.


After a prolonged examination and discussion of available options, it was decided to proceed with upper blepharoplasty to remove the excess skin and improve eyelid tightness.


Following the procedure, the client experienced a remarkable transformation. Within weeks, the results were visible: the removal of excess skin not only eliminated the tired appearance but also enhanced the width of her eyes, resulting in a more youthful and fresh look. The successful outcome not only addressed her aesthetic concerns but also restored her confidence and eliminated the need for unwanted comments about her appearance.

This case highlights the importance of eyelid surgery in improving a person’s appearance and restoring self-confidence, as well as how cosmetic procedures can alter a person’s appearance.

This is what you should usually expect after surgery.

There is a lot to talk about regarding surgery.

Frequently asked questions.

When would eyelid reduction surgery be performed?

Patients choose to have blepharoplasty surgery in Manchester,

Liverpoolor nearby for both cosmetic and medical reasons.

Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery

Cosmetic eyelid surgery is performed purely

for cosmetic improvement. Unfortunately during the ageing process,

your upper or lower eyelids may become droopy or baggy. You may

also find your eyebrows sag or droop as well.  In this instance

to achieve a more youthful appearance cosmetic eyelid surgery

may be performed.

Medical Eyelid Surgery

A functional eye lift may be done to remove loose skin from the

upper eyelid in cases where it droops low enough to affect

a person’s vision for driving and

other visual requirements. Other people may find difficulty

in wearing contact lenses and hence be a candidate for eyelid surgery.

Other medical conditions that may suggest a need for eyelid

surgery include:

  • Irritation around

the eye area due to the excess skin around the eyelid rubbing


  • Discomfort and pain around the forehead due to the person

constantly having to overuse the muscles to lift the skin in the

eyelid area.

Both men and women can eyelid reduction / Blepharoplasty surgery.

Many people still believe that this type of cosmetic surgery

is mainly performed on Women. Mr El Gawad is a plastic

surgeon with over a decade of cosmetic surgery experience. 

 Mr El Gawad indicates that the number of men, booking in to

have eyelid surgery, is rising every year.


If you have significant sagging of the eyelids, or around the

eye area, unfortunately there isn’t a good alternative to having

blepharoplasty surgery. 

 In these cases surgery is the only option.

However in milder cases, when the signs of aging are not

as obvious, patients may choose to have non surgical

treatments as an alternative. The results however

would not be as dramatic to those who have gone ahead and

had eyelid surgery.

For those patients who are looking for an alternative to

eyelid surgery and have much milder symptoms, they may consider

treatments  such as:

  • For the lower eyelid a combination of injectable fillers and

resurfacing techniques such as laser or chemical peel.

  • For the upper eyes they may be a good candidate for

a brow lift or a non surgical brow lift using Botox injections.

It must be noted that the results will never be as good with the non

surgical options that you would get from going ahead and getting

eyelid or eyebrow surgery. But for those who are wanting a more

subtle result with little downtime then the non surgical options are

definitely viable.

The NHS will sometimes cover the cost of Blepharoplasty surgery

if your excess skin is affecting your vision. Or is the eyelids are so

heavy that you struggle to open them. The NHS will not do eyelid

surgery for cosmetic reasons.  

The eyes will continue to age after you have had eyelid surgery.

Lower eyelid surgery is very long lasting and rarely needs to be

done again. If the upper lids sag again with the normal aging

process, many patients decide to have a forehead lift rather than

having another eye lift.


Skin that sags around the eye area not only makes you appear to

be older, but it can also reduce your peripheral (side) vision and

especially the upper and outer parts within your field of vision.  

Eyelid surgery can reduce or eliminate problems with your vision.

It can also make the eye area appear younger and much more alert.

This means that both sides are not exactly equal.
