Cosmetic Eye Surgery London
Internationally recognised plastic surgeon, Dominic Bray, is the number one choice for cosmetic eye surgery in London.
Hooded eyes, crepey eyelids and bags under the eyes are all common features of aging. They can significantly alter the appearance of the face, and hooded eyelids can cause both functional and cosmetic issues.
Dominic Bray offers simple surgical solutions for cosmetic eye issues at his clinic on Harley Street, London’s prestigious medical quarter.
What is cosmetic eye surgery?
Dominic Bray offers eyelid surgery in London that addresses the common issues affecting the eye area:
Sometimes the eyes develop a hooded appearance as the upper eyelid begins to droop over the eye. This process is caused by thinning of the skin and age-related puffiness of the tissues around the eye. In extreme cases, this can cause problems with vision and must be rectified for functional reasons. However, many clients choose to address this issue as they feel that it makes them look older.
Eye Bags and Tear Troughs
The firmness of the under-eye area is maintained by the tissues below the eye in the mid-cheek area. As these tissues lose elasticity and sag with age, so the area under the eye becomes hollow and sunken, creating what is known as tear troughs. Eye bags occur when fat pushes up and causes the delicate skin of the under-eye area to bulge.

What does cosmetic eye surgery in London involve?
Dominic Bray has an in-depth consultation with all his patients before undertaking any surgery. It is essential for the surgeon to understand the patient’s expectations and explain how he can help them.
Blepharoplasty for the Upper Eyelid
Dominic uses this procedure to remodel the upper lid. Dominic makes an incision in the crease of the upper lid. He removes a sliver of muscle and skin, and if required, he will also remove any excess fat via the incision. Tiny sutures are used to close the incision.
Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty for the Lower Eyelid
Dominic’s favoured procedure for the lower eyelid is a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. In this case, he makes an incision inside the lower lid allowing him to remove the bulging fat that is causing bags under the eyes. If tear troughs or sunken under eyes are the issue, Dominic will use the incision to reposition fat to plump out the under-eye area.
How quickly will I recover from cosmetic eye surgery in London?
Both procedures are performed with a local anaesthetic and will not require an overnight stay in hospital; indeed, most patients leave the clinic within an hour of surgery.
Swelling is common after all surgical procedures, however small, and patients are advised to sleep propped up on pillows to encourage swelling to reduce as quickly as possible. Ice packs may also be used for the same purpose. Blepharoplasty patients are given eye lubrication and antibiotic drops to prevent infection if Dominic thinks it is necessary. Patients should not anticipate a great deal of pain, but over-the-counter painkillers can be used if necessary.
You can look forward to seeing the finished result of your eyelid surgery after 12 weeks.
How long will the effect of my eyelid surgery in London last?
The aging process will continue, so further surgery may be required in the future to preserve the appearance of the eye area. The benefits of Blepharoplasty may need refreshing after eight to ten years.
