How can surgery on my eyelids in Cheshire improve my appearance?
Blepharoplasty is a frequently performed cosmetic procedure and Miss Breahna uses it to improve the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids.
Changes in the appearance of the eye area are often caused by the ageing process. With time skin becomes less elastic and unable to spring back into place. The small muscles around the eyes also weaken, allowing the skin to sag even more.
The skin on the upper eyelids can become stretched and droopy, making your eyes look more tired than you feel. As well as being a cosmetic issue, your sagging lids may interfere with your eyesight as the excess skin obscures your vision.
The skin and muscle beneath the eyes can also become lax, allowing the fat that occurs naturally in the area to bulge, creating the appearance of hollows, eye bags and dark circles.
Although most of Miss Breahna’s Cheshire patients are mature individuals with age-related cosmetic changes, she also treats many younger patients. Hooded eyes or bags under the eyes can be inherited and younger patients often choose to improve their features with this simple cosmetic procedure.
The procedure will remove excess skin and fat from the lids restoring a smoother, more refreshed look to your eye area.

What happens during plastic surgery for the eyelids in Cheshire?
Blepharoplasty is the medical term for the surgical procedure that is used by aesthetic plastic surgeons to refresh the appearance of the eye area.
Blepharoplasty removes excess skin, muscle and fat from the area around the eye.
Your surgeon, Anca Breahna, regularly performs this eyelid surgery on her Cheshire clients and depending on the type of procedure may use either a general or local anaesthetic.
Cosmetic surgery for the upper eyelids
Upper eyelid surgery is a simple and straightforward cosmetic procedure that can have a dramatic impact on your appearance.
The surgical incision is made in the natural crease of your upper eyelid. The loose skin and tissue are trimmed away. Miss Breahna may also remodel the tissue around the eyelid and tighten the muscles if necessary to achieve the best results for you.
You will be treated as a day case when you have an upper blepharoplasty.
Cosmetic surgery for eye bag removal in Cheshire
Eyebag removal involves a surgical incision along the lower eyelid. In a procedure similar to upper eyelid surgery, excess skin and fat are trimmed away.
The underlying tissue of the lower eyelid is then remodelled to give a youthful smoothness to the skin under the eyes.
Eyebag removal is a more complicated surgical procedure than surgery for drooping eyelids and usually requires a general anaesthetic. Most patients spend a night in hospital after treatment.
How long is the recovery period after cosmetic eyelid surgery in Cheshire?
Any type of eyelid surgery is likely to cause swelling and bruising. Your eye area may be puffy and tender for a couple of weeks after your surgery. Miss Breahna advises her patients to book two weeks off work to allow for complete healing.
You can reduce swelling with ice packs and by sleeping with your head in an elevated position.
It is a good idea to avoid wearing contact lenses for a fortnight after surgery to avoid irritation.
Your eyes may be more sensitive to light after surgery so you may like to wear sunglasses for a while.
Soothing eye drops or artificial tears can be prescribed if you have sore or dry eyes.
Surgery to the upper eyelids has a shorter recovery period than lower eyelid procedures and eye bag removal.
When will I see the full benefits of plastic surgery on my eye area in Cheshire?
Most patients find that they are fully recovered a couple of months after their blepharoplasty.
The excess skin that created a heavy appearance around your upper lids will have disappeared.
The skin around your eyes will be smooth and fresh with no sign of the dark circles that used to make you look tired.
