Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is both a cosmetic and medical procedure to remove the saggy skin and to reposition the fat around the eye, both on the eyelid and below where eye bags form. A blepharoplasty can improve sight where saggy excess skin on your eyelid obstructs your vision.

This procedure is not carried out by our ophthalmology consultants but  can be done at The Yorkshire Clinic, under the care of one of our consultant cosmetic surgeons. If you wish to find out more about blepharoplasty treatment, please visit our cosmetic surgery page or contact us on 01274 550655.

Patient Choice

If you are an NHS patient, you can choose to come to The Yorkshire Clinic by asking your optician or GP for a referral.

If you wish to pay for your own treatment, you can contact us directly and avoid delay on 01274 550 655 or by emailing us at Yorkshire.enquiries@ramsayhealth.co.uk
