Everything was explained fully to me about the procedure. Any worries I had about having local Anaesthetic were put to bed and I now feel quite relaxed about it all.
During an eyelid procedure, which can be performed either under a general or local Anaesthetic, there are a number of techniques that Mr Ahmad will employ. In an upper lid procedure, he will make an incision in the natural crease of the eyelid, and then any excess skin and fatty tissue are removed and, if necessary, adjustments are made to the muscle that supports the eyelid. The incision is then closed up with stitches. In a lower lid blepharoplasty, the incision can either be made just below the lash line or through the back of the lower lid. Again any excess skin and fat are removed and the muscles strengthened if necessary. Mr Ahmad is careful not to remove too much fat from under the eyelids to ensure that you’re not left with a hollow look which can be equally ageing.
