Eyelid Lift

Heavy or baggy eyelids are a very common complaint and in fact, traditional surgical eyelid correction is the 2nd most sought-after cosmetic surgical procedure in the UK. Redundant skin due to ageing, long-term inflammation e.g. dermatitis or smoking results in descent of the upper eyelids. In early sagging, this still causes problems such as eye makeup smudging. Below the eyes, the skin can be creased and give the eyes a tired look.

Surgical or non-surgical blepharoplasty?

Dr Patel is one of the pioneers of PLEXR in the UK. With this award-winning device, he can perform a “soft” surgical blepharoplasty. Therefore, without any needles or cutting of the skin, he can effectively remove excess skin from around the eyes. This has numerous advantages over surgical blepharoplasty including significantly less downtime and risk. PLEXR will also not negatively impact the shape of the eye area or result in the scar line sometimes seen after surgery.

However, in some cases, the surgical route can be the only option. This could be due to the amount of excess skin on the eyelid. We have two very reputable surgeons who work with us, both have a wealth of experience and qualifications in their specialist fields. Our CQC registered surgery allows you to complete your whole journey with us from consultation to stitch removal. Learn more about eye surgery here.

Post Treatment Expectations

  • You should expect a swelling around the treated area, this is normal and usually subsides within 1 – 4 days after the procedure
  • The treated area will have a light brown crust present. The crust will fall off after 5-10 days (for most patients), leaving pink skin. Any pink or brown (pigmented) small dots that may appear like a “dip” in the skin are completely normal within the first few months. These can occasionally persist for longer

Post Treatment Aftercare

  • Do not use an exfoliating cleanser over the area
  • Pat dry the treated area; you must NOT rub
  • Do not apply plasters or cover the area
  • Avoid exercise for 72 hours or until the swelling subsides
  • Do NOT drink alcohol and stay well hydrated, during your healing period. If you smoke, we advise keeping this to a minimum (we recommend trying nicotine gum)

Please note, the above aftercare is just a guide. Full aftercare advice will be given to you when you attend your appointment with us.

Before & After

Before & After

Eyelid Lift


On the day of your treatment, we recommend that you avoid make-up in the area to be treated if at all possible.

After completing your consent form, your skin will be cleaned and then some numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to help ensure your treatment is comfortable. You will be asked to let this take effect for approximately 30 minutes.

The PLEXR® device does not even touch your skin during the treatment. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, treatment time may take 10-30 minutes. Aftercare instructions will be provided. You will have an out-of-hours number to call should you have any concerns, although this is extremely unlikely to happen.

Tissue retraction is also a key benefit which explains its use in scar management and even non-surgical face/neck/body lifts.

When activated, the instrument ionises the gas particles in the air between its tip and your skin. This creates an electrical arc which touches the very surface of the skin, causing the target tissue to ‘sublimate’ (go directly from solid to gas state), thereby preventing the unwanted spread of heat downwards or across the skin. Tissue retraction is also a key benefit which explains its use in scar management and even non-surgical face/neck/body lifts.

In a word, YES. Due to the revolutionary way in which PLEXR® works, it is an extremely safe device in the hands of a trained doctor. Dr. Patel will discuss potential side effects with you during your consultation and you will be given plenty of time to pose any questions you may have.
