Why Choose Blepharoplasty in Aberdeen?

Blepharoplasty is an ideal choice for individuals who want to address concerns such as drooping eyelids, excess skin or fat in the eyelid area, puffiness, and under-eye bags. This procedure can help improve the appearance of tired, aged eyes and provide a more youthful and rejuvenated look. Blepharoplasty can also enhance your vision if sagging eyelids obstruct your line of sight.

Eyelid Surgery

What the Procedure Involves

Blepharoplasty involves the precise removal of excess skin, fat, and muscle from the eyelid area. The procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on your specific concerns and goals. Our skilled surgeons will make carefully placed incisions along the natural creases of the eyelids to minimise scarring and achieve natural-looking results.

How is Blepharoplasty Performed?

At Profile Aesthetic, blepharoplasty is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local anaesthetic. The procedure involves making incisions in the natural creases of the eyelids to minimise scarring. From there, excess skin and fat are carefully removed to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. It is often necessary to tighten lax muscle at the same time.

Upper Lid Blepharoplasty

For upper eyelid surgery, the incision is made in the crease of the eyelid. Excess skin and sometimes fat are removed. The procedure can be performed quite comfortably under local anaesthetic alone.

Lower Lid Blepharoplasty

Lower lid surgery is more complex than upper blepharoplasty and is usually performed under local anaesthetic and sedation. The incision is made just below the lash line, and excess skin, muscle, and fat are removed or repositioned to reduce puffiness and sagging. In some cases, the incision can be made from inside the eyelid (called a transconjunctival incision) so that it is completely hidden.

Advances in Blepharoplasty

To maximise results, we recommend combining blepharoplasty with laser resurfacing, to rejuvenate the whole peri-orbital region. Blepharoplasty can also be combined with fat transfer to restore lost volume or with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift.

The Benefits

Blepharoplasty offers several benefits, including a more refreshed and youthful appearance, improved eyelid contour, reduced puffiness, and elimination of under-eye bags. The procedure can help restore a more rested and alert look to your eyes, enhancing your overall facial harmony and boosting your self-confidence.

Personalised Treatment

During your consultation at Profile Aesthetic, our experienced plastic surgeons will evaluate your specific concerns and goals. They will discuss your desired outcome, assess your eyelid anatomy, and recommend the most suitable treatment plan. We believe in personalised approaches, tailoring the procedure to address your unique needs and deliver optimal results. Additional procedures such as laser resurfacing and fat transfer can be combined with blepharoplasty to maximise results.

Your Safety is our Primary Concern

On the day

On the day of the procedure, you will arrive at our clinic, and our caring staff will guide you through the process. Your surgeon will confirm the details of the procedure with you and together you will complete a consent form. The surgeon will precisely measure the amount of skin to be removed and will take preoperative photographs. The surgical team will perform the blepharoplasty surgery according to your personalised treatment plan. Upper lid blepharoplasty procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia and sedation is recommended for lower lid blepharoplasty to ensure your comfort throughout.

DAYCASE Surgery | Recover at Home


After blepharoplasty, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and temporary discomfort in the eyelid area. Our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions, including the use of cold compresses, ointments, and any necessary pain management. It's important to follow these instructions for a smooth recovery. Strenuous activities and contact lens use should be avoided during the initial healing period. Sutures are removed at 1 week by a specialist nurse. Most patients can return to work and regular activities within one to two weeks after surgery.
