The eyes are a focal feature and usually the first thing someone notices about us when they meet us. As we start to age, or as a result of certain medical conditions, sagging skin, bags, puffiness and dark circles can appear, which can have a significant effect on our facial appearance and in some cases, can even impair our vision. At Netri Cosmetic Surgeons in Cheshire, we offer eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to improve the appearance of the upper and lower eye bags, as well as helping to improve your vision, if it is, indeed impaired by your eye bags..
Prices start from £3,500
Mr Netri will give you a complete list of aftercare instructions on what to do after your eye surgery as well as medication, ointments and cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. Your eyes may be covered in gauze for a while, depending on which procedure you have undergone. Expect some initial swelling, slight bruising, irritation, dry eyes and discomfort that can be controlled with certain medication, a cold compresses and specially prescribed ointment. You will also have to wear sunglasses during your recovery. Expect downtime to be around 10 to 14 days following your procedure.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure and as with all surgeries, there are always risks, however unlikely. However, Mr Netri who has specialised in this field for many years is an expert in these procedures and therefore any risks or side-effects are minimal to negligible. All risks will be discussed thoroughly in your pre-treatment consultations and you will be made fully-aware of them, prior to signing our consent form, as part of our duty of care to all our patients, here at Netri Cosmetic Surgery.
Potential risks may include:
The great news is that the results of eyelid surgery are long-lasting and there is very little pain associated with this procedure. However, there may well be some bruising and swelling after the surgery. Most patients look and feel good enough to go out in public, 10 to 14 days after surgery, but it could take several months before the ﬁnal healing is completed and optimum results are seen.
You will need to take care of your eyes and the skin around them, to maintain the best results and although blepharoplasty will correct long-term and offers ‘permanent’ results, the ageing process will still continue. Therefore, eating a healthy diet, keeping your face out of the sun and refraining from damaging lifestyle choices such as smoking, will help to maintain your results for as long as possible.
Prices start from £4000. However, the cost may vary due to the following considerations.
