Blepharoplasty, Female, Hertfordshire

After making the decision to have my droopy eyelids ‘sorted’ (Blepharoplasty) I contacted Cosmetic Surgeons London and from then everything became quick and simple.  I had a consultation at Spire Hospital Harpenden with Nilesh Sojitra, who explained the procedure excellently and a date was set.  I had a follow up telephone conversation with a nice lady called Teresa who is the cosmetic nurse specialist, who went over the procedure again.

I opted to have the procedure under local anesthetic, mainly because of my age (68) and a previous heart condition.  I was rather nervous, but need not have worried.  The injections were uncomfortable (no worse than going to the dentist though) but everything went well and the theatre staff really looked after me.  I went into hospital at 3.00 p.m. and, after the operation and a bite to eat, I was home by 7.30 p.m.

I have been surprised at how quickly I healed.  There was a little bruising, but not black and blue like I expected and no pain whatsoever.  Teresa took the stitches out a week later and after a further week I was ready to face the world again.

Unless I point it out, no-one would guess that I had had the procedure done.  The scarring is minimal and is concealed in the natural creases around my eye.  And yes, I am very pleased with the results.  I feel better in myself and would recommend Nilesh to anyone.

I had suffered from very heavy eyelids for at least 2 years, I always looked tired and hid behind sunglasses for photographs. I had a consultation with Mr Sojitra to talk about an eyelid reduction who talked me through the procedure and said that having it done under local anaesthetic would be best. From the time I was admitted to spire Harpenden, my treatment was 1st class. The operation took less than an hour, and I didn’t feel a thing.  All the theatre staff were so friendly and kept me at ease. Mr Sojitra and his nurse made sure that I was always comfortable throughout the operation. I returned home later that day. Bruising started appearing the next day, but by day 10 you could hardly see any bruising left.  The results have been amazing, friends and family can’t believe the difference. I now wish I had had this procedure years ago.

I had always been very unhappy with the excessive skin over my upper & lower eyelid and although always wanted to do something about it but never found a surgeon who I had felt comfortable with.

From the initial consultation with Mr Sojitra to the final results I was extremely pleased with the care and consideration and explanation I received.  Mr Sojitra performed blepharoplasty surgery in February 2011 on both my eyelids. It was the best thing I have ever done, and has completely changed the way I feel about my eyes now.  I cannot thank Mr Sojitra & his team enough for service and excellent procedure.  I would recommend him highly.
