Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
ARE YOU READY TO LOOK AS YOUNG AS YOU FEEL ?
What is Blepharoplasty ?
Cosmetic eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, can remove loose, sagging skin or fat deposits in the upper or lower eyelids. The result is a rejuvenation of the eyes, which appear to open wider, and look more rested.
At Paragon Clinic, our specialised oculoplastic surgeons provide three types of cosmetic eyelid surgery.
Eyelid Lift (Upper eyelid blepharoplasty) – £2600
- Eliminates excess drooping skin on the upper eyelids
- Eliminates hooding of the upper eyelids
- Restores vision by eliminating obstruction caused by excess fat or skin on upper eyelids
Eyebag removal (Lower eyelid blepharoplasty) – £3200
- Reduces bags or wrinkles under the eyes
Eyebrow lift – £3200
- A brow lift or eyebrow surgery can lift and smooth your forehead, removing wrinkles & frown lines and lift your eyebrows.
- It addresses the descent or downward migration of the eyebrows as one ages. Patients often find that as they approach their late 30’s to early 40’s that their brows are beginning to lose that youthful appearance and present complaining of a tired and angry look. Women usually present earlier than men, wanting back the high arch of their brows they used to have.

Why do you want blepharoplasty ?
You want to restore your youthful appearance. If you have drooping or puffy eyelids, sometimes they seem to be the single thing that adds the most years to your overall appearance. Youth and vibrancy can be restored to your face with expertly crafted eyelid surgery at the Shrewsbury Eye Clinic.
Your Eyelid Surgery Consultation at Paragon Clinic
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is an incredibly delicate and personalized procedure. As such, the initial consultations are one of the most important steps in your eyelid surgery journey.
At Paragon Clinic, we start the process with a detailed consultation with a specialist cosmetic nurse consultant and a consultant oculoplastic surgeon.
Both the consultant and specialist nurse would discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals, examine your eyelids, and review your medical history. Your consultant will determine if you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure based on whether you truly need eyelid surgery, have realistic expectations, and whether you have underlying health conditions that preclude you from the treatment.
Your consultant will discuss your eyelid surgery options, highlighting the specific techniques necessary to provide the desired goals. Some patients only need an upper blepharoplasty, some need a lower blepharoplasty, and some need a combination of the two or a brow lift. All aspects of surgery including the technique, incision styles, and recovery steps will be discussed.

WHY PARAGON CLINIC
Many cosmetic surgery centres adopt a cowboy approach to surgery with flying doctors from abroad to provide surgery at discounted prices. However, at Paragon Clinic, we take pride in adopting a clinical approach and you will only be treated by specialist eye consultants trained in oculoplastic surgery who are also local NHS ophthalmic consultants.
We adopt a no-rush approach giving you enough time to digest the risks and benefits of surgery and being absolutely sure that this is the right treatment for you.
How to choose your eyelid / blepharoplasty surgeon?
He/ She should be an “oculoplastic” specialist – not just a general plastic surgeon.
Although many plastic surgeons are competent at performing aesthetic eyelid surgery, they have no training in ophthalmology and cannot examine the eye, understand eye disease, anticipate eye problems that may affect the surgical plan, or identify complications that may arise from eye related operations or have the expertise to manage those complications.
Plastic surgeons have no training in the use of the basic equipment required to examine the eye. In contrast, Oculoplastic surgeons have undergone several years in ophthalmic microsurgical training followed by highly specialised training in oculoplastic surgery.
At Paragon clinic, Mr. Yadav is our specialist oculoplastic consultant who also performs complex eyelid surgery in the local Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust. So at Paragon Clinic, you are in the best of hands for your blepharoplasty and other eyelid operations.
How to choose your specialist clinic?
Paragon Clinic in Shrewsbury is fully equipped for major eye surgery. Here, you will be looked after by a team who understand eyelid and eye surgery, unlike in a cosmetic clinic which does not have the facilities, expertise and back up to carry out eye surgery.
Beware of a clinic where
- The surgeon is not an “Oculoplastic” consultant ophthalmologist.
- The surgeon is not local and does not perform complex eyelid surgery at the local NHS hospital.
- The clinic does not have a full ophthalmic set up to perform complex eye operations.
- The clinic does not use trained ophthalmic nurses and staff.

Why do some people need cosmetic eyelid surgery ?
As we age, our skin begins to lose its volume and definition. The collagen that once gave our skin its youthful structure and smooth surface begins to decrease, wrinkles form, skin starts to sag, and fat deposits are slowly pulled down by gravity. A loss of skin elasticity combined with decreased tissue volume frequently results in sagging skin on both the upper and lower eyelids, causing wrinkles and bulges. On the upper lid, this can cause the extra skin to hang low over the eye itself, even going so far as to obscure the vision of the patient. On the lower lid, the weight of extra skin and decreased tissue can cause the eyelid to droop so that the white of the eye is visible beneath the iris.
A layer of fat serves as a cushion between our eye itself and the skeletal eye socket. In addition to sagging skin, as we age, this membrane often loosens and weakens, allowing the fat deposits to bulge out around the eyes — similar to the way a hernia forms.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery can help to correct these issues, restoring a better field of vision as well as a more youthful appearance. At the Shrewsbury Eye Clinic, you can benefit from premier cosmetic eyelid surgery services from specialised consultant oculoplastic surgeons to help you look as young as you feel.
How long does surgery take ?
Typically blepharoplasty takes between 60-90 minutes and is carried out awake under local anaesthesia. You will not feel any pain during the procedure.
