Eyelid surgery, sometimes called ophthalmic plastic or orbito-facial surgery and is done for both medical and aesthetic reasons. At Clinica London Jane provides advice and treatment for many eyelid and peri-orbital conditions, both medical and aesthetic. She specialises in eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) for hooded eyelids, baggy eyelids and drooping eyelids (ptosis surgery). She also does allied medical aesthetic treatments, such as Ultherapy, Sculptra biostimulation, Restylane, Botulinum Toxin treatment and Hyaluronidase reversal of filler.
Oculoplastic surgeons are fully trained ophthalmologists who have sub-specialised in oculoplastic surgery. They therefore have an in depth knowledge of the eyes and eyelids, in particular the anatomy and function, therefore are ideally suited to work around the eyes. Jane Olver is an eye surgeon who co-founded the British Oculoplastic Surgery Society (BOPSS) and was the founder secretary for five years.
