Paul Moorfields Private patient - blepharoplasty

Paul - my eyes look much fresher

Paul underwent cosmetic bilateral upper lid blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery on both eyes)

Over the last couple of years I had thought about looking into having cosmetic eye surgery on my upper eyes - blepharoplasty. I felt I wanted to do something and I wasn’t sure if I just needed botox or something more was required.

For a long time I felt troubled by upper lid excess skin to the outer parts of my upper eye lids – this is called temporal hooding - and I was trying to figure it out. My profession is within the entertainment industry, so my appearance and image is important for my work, and I felt I had started to look a bit tired.

I knew about Moorfields reputation and contacted them for a list of their consultants. I also did some online research and there were really good reviews about the consultant I decided to see. Part of what I liked was that I felt there was no pressure which I know, happens with some other organisations. At my first appointment, my consultant was very reassuring and he told me that every case was individual.

I trusted his advice and he explained that the procedure should not make someone look completely different from their original self and this is exactly what my surgery achieved – the surgery I underwent is called a cosmetic bilateral upper lid blepharoplasty. The result is very subtle and my eyes look much fresher in their appearance, I also feel fresher as well. It was the result I wanted.

People say I don't look as tired as I used to. I wish I'd done it sooner.

Paul - Fresher-faced and fuss-free

My consultant was really friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. The surgery was very straightforward and my consultant spoke to me to make me feel very safe and relaxed, and I was kept informed every step of the way. This was especially important to me as I had surgery just at the start of the covid pandemic and before everyone went into lockdown.

Since my operation, only a couple of my most observant friends have commented on my appearance saying “you don’t look as tired as you used to.”

I would certainly recommend having it done to anyone considering it. I waited about two years from originally starting to think about it to the time I actually had the operation. Knowing what I know now, I wish I had it done sooner.
