Blepharoplasty (BLEF-uh-roe-plas-tee) is a type of surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes.

Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can reduce your side vision (peripheral vision), especially the upper and outer parts of your field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these vision problems and make your eyes appear younger and more alert.

To help decide if blepharoplasty is right for you, find out what you can realistically expect and explore the benefits and risks of blepharoplasty.

Why it’s done

You might consider blepharoplasty if droopy or sagging eyelids keep your eyes from opening completely or pull down your lower eyelids. Removing excess tissue from your upper eyelids can improve your vision. Upper and lower lid blepharoplasty can make your eyes appear younger and more alert.

Blepharoplasty may be an option if you have:

  • Baggy or droopy upper eyelids
  • Excess skin of the upper eyelids that interferes with your peripheral vision
  • Excess skin on the lower eyelids
  • Bags under your eyes

You may undergo blepharoplasty at the same time as another procedure, such as a brow lift, face-lift or skin resurfacing.

Insurance coverage may depend on whether the surgery repairs a condition that impairs vision. If you have the surgery only to improve your appearance, the cost probably won’t be covered by insurance. Lower lid blepharoplasty is almost always done just for cosmetic reasons.

Your medical history. Your surgeon will ask questions about previous surgeries and past or current conditions, such as dry eyes, glaucoma, allergies, circulatory problems, thyroid problems and diabetes.
Your expectations. An honest discussion of your hopes and motivation for surgery will help set the stage for a satisfactory outcome.
A physical examination. Your surgeon will conduct a physical examination, which may include testing your tear production and measuring parts of your eyelids.
A vision examination. Your eye doctor will examine your eyes and test your vision, including your peripheral vision.
Eyelid photography. Your eyes will be photographed from different angles.
And you'll be asked to: Stop taking warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven), aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others).
Quit smoking several weeks before your surgery. Smoking can reduce your ability to heal after surgery.

I first met Dr Ignatieva in December 2017 when she came to work at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham England. I know she came to this hospital because it is a big training hospital, as a result it gave her the opportunity to work daily on more complex/major procedures that patients needed, because this is the criteria of the type surgery this hospital undertakes, small less complicated surgery tends to be sent to other hospitals.

I discussed with her all the things I had wanted to change about my body for a number of years. For so many of us finding the right Dr in plastic surgery is always a daunting task, particularly as it’s a cosmetic desire to look how you imagine in your mind, for me it was based on finding an old photograph of many years ago! My concerns started with feeling comfortable to discuss what I want to achieve, comfortable and confident about the ability of the Dr I may choose if I decide to proceed, the realistic care recovery process in another country if I considered going outside the UK where I had heard prices are cheaper and knowing how expensive all these “wants” would be in the UK.

Dr Ignatieva made me feel at ease and invited me to visit her in Kiev Ukraine and to only have a consultation with her and her colleague, and suggested not to make any forward planned commitments before going away to think about what I wanted to do after the consultation. Knowing she had worked on some complicated/complex/major procedure’s it gave me the confidence to at least go to see her. I went to Kiev in February 2019 and made the decision to have a bust reduction/reconstruction done in May 2019, this was major surgery given I wanted to go from a GG to a C/D cup in bra size, from start to finish the whole process made me relaxed, I was monitored frequently to make sure everything was okay and 2 weeks later on my way back to the UK a very happy patient, within 4 months of my surgery I was back to doing all the fitness training I had been comfortable to do before I felt like “my breasts were getting in my way”.



I had set out at the beginning that I wanted 3 different procedures done, it was suggested to focus only on the major surgery in the beginning, my breast reduction/reconstruction, if I was happy with the result then was the right time to discuss the rest of my “wish list”, which was liposuction to removed fat from my back and upper arms plus skin removal from my upper arms to give a nice tight skin appearance once the fate was removed. Not only have I done extensive fitness training over previous years and cut back drastically during the past few years which took a toll on the appearance of my body with muscle turning to fat, I spend a lot of time in the sun, which is not good for the skin appearance other than getting a tan and at 61 years old my ageing skin was all going against me, hence the dreadful “bingo wings” had to be reduced to a more appealing look. I have had both of these procedures done in the past month, while I’m still coming out of the end of the FULL RECOVERY stage I already know I’m 100% happy with the end result, with little restriction within days of the surgery because it was not so invasive, but to treat my body with respect, all made possible by Dr Ignatieva who made it all stress-less by the care, consideration she showed me but more important her desire to “make my body back to beautiful”. I have achieved all what I wanted to achieve without spending a huge amount of money that the UK would have cost, despite the cost the procedures were carried out in wonderful surroundings with up to date modern technology.

I have since decided to return to have my eyelids done, on a date to be confirmed…

If you are thinking about plastic surgery I would have no hesitation to recommend you discussing what you want to achieve with this professional Doctor.
