Look more refreshed by getting upper eyelid blepharoplasty
“Goodness, you just look so well! Have you been on holiday?”
Patients are looking for a natural look when they have upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery. The best thing that someone can say to them after they have had their surgery and everything has healed up is just,
“Don’t you just look so well!It is lovely to see you, you are looking so healthy.How are you?Your job must be going well, things must be going well for you.You are looking so rested.Have you been on holiday?”
These are all the natural things that patients tell me that are comments they receive after they have had their upper eyelid blepharoplasty.
How is it that having upper eyelid blepharoplasty helps to rejuvenate and refresh your eyes?
Particularly if you are in the age group of 50 to 75 years old, but feel inside a lot younger, it can make you look as young as you feel. Many people want this feeling of youth to be apparent on the outside to other people. The ones who may not know you so well or even the ones who do know you and are used to seeing you with rather hang down eyelids, droopy eyelids and a tired appearance.
By having upper eyelid blepharoplasty, you can benefit from a natural look which refreshes you and helps you to look and feel the age that you are inside.
As the oculoplastic surgeon who does upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery, I can provide you with a very natural look through eyelid surgery in which you still maintain your essential look of you and the appearance you have always had. Just without so much excess hooding and bagginess of your upper eyelids.
I wanted to write this blog post because this week a patient came to see me three months after her upper eyelid surgery looking radiant. She is a tall lady aged about 55 years old, still very active in her job with young teenage children. She has a hard working husband, but she is quite independent in her career as an interior decorator. She is constantly visiting people in their homes to talk to them about rejuvenating their houses, and she had become aware that she was beginning to look rather worn herself. That’s why she had come to me to have upper eyelid surgery. Drooping eyelids ran in her family, and her mother had had the same surgery done about 10 years earlier. She wanted to catch her drooping eyelids earlier and do her eyelid surgery before it became really bad. She already had some natural hooding of her upper eyelids and a little bit of bagginess at the medial end, and so we decided to go ahead with her eyelid surgery.
“I am absolutely delighted; nobody knows I have had the upper eyelid surgery done.”
We did the surgery under local anaesthetic here at Clinica London, and for the first couple of weeks she got on with work from home using her computer, but she wore her dark glasses when she went out. By three weeks she was back in circulation again visiting people’s homes in her guise of an interior decorator. I saw her for her third and last visit this week and the first thing she said to me is,
“I am absolutely delighted, nobody knows I have had the upper eyelid surgery done.They have asked me if I have been on holiday and I have smiled and said yes.”
Meaning, of course, she has been on holiday because she spent two weeks at home in her own house getting better during her holidays. It was a holiday with her dark glasses at home, but a holiday which meant she came out looking very, very natural and refreshed and feeling so much better and less worn than she had been before. I immediately said to her that I wanted to write a blog post about what she has just told me because this is the message I want patients to get. Having upper eyelid surgery does not mean you are going to look as though you have had an operation and the best thing is that people say to you once it has all recovered is,
“You look well, you must have been on holiday”.
