Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is available in Bath through world renowned cosmetic surgeon Elena Prousskaia.

In this page, we will outline what eyelid surgery is and also the facilities available at the BMI Bath Hospital.

However, first a few words on Elena. Why should you consider her as the surgeon to treat saggy or baggy eyes?

As with any cosmetic surgery, choosing the right surgeon is crucial – right means both that they have experience and skill but also that they have a patient led manner and work to produce the best possible outcome.

Elena has won multiple awards, holds numerous certificates and has had articles published in leading medical journals.

In all these areas, Elena is outstanding. She trained for eight years in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and since then has held Fellowships around the world, including Milan, India, Barcelona and prestigious placements at the University Hospital in Tokyo and the UK’s own Guys and St Thomas’.

She also ensures that patients go into any surgery, whether that is eyelid surgery or other treatment fully informed and having discussed the results – this achieved through lengthy consultations and then a follow up consultation in which any questions that might have emerged can be answered.

As Elena says:

“The one thing that matters most to me when I am with a patient is empathy.

“A good surgical outcome is not the only thing that matters. Everything that you do and say to a patient has to come from your heart.

“I consider myself very lucky to be able to share my passion for what I do and hopefully bring a bit more happiness into my patients’ lives.”

The enormous regard her patients have for her is clear in the reviews, universal five star reviews on independent sites such as Google and IWantGreatCare.

Elena’s status as a world renowned surgeon also means she has access to the leading hospitals and clinics. In Bath, she operates out of the superb BMI Hospital, this a setting with 687 ensuite bedrooms and two state of the art operating theatres. It is a conveniently located centre, the postcode to use is BA2 7BR. 

Blepharoplasty Surgery Bath

The nature of the eyelid surgery will vary by patient – this is where Elena’s skill and 20-year experience is vital. The eyelids are anatomically complex structures, the desired result might be achieved by removing skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids and also tightening the underlying muscle and fat. 

Elena would talk you through the best option for producing an enhancement that is natural looking yet has a real effect. The eyes are the window to the soul, when we speak to or meet someone, we look into their eyes. The skill of the surgeon is to make the eyes look more youthful, remove the signs of age and stress yet for this to remain natural. The eyes and eyelids should sparkle, not scream out We Have Had Surgery.

We have produced a pdf brochure that goes into a lot more detail about the procedure itself and the different options available. 

– Before and After Gallery of Eyelid Surgery

As Elena would discuss, eyelid surgery is a treatment that requires a period of recovery, this typically one or two weeks. Swelling is common and there might be a requirement to use a cold compress at times. The final results should be visible within one to three months, a follow up also booked in to check the healing process is as expected.

Many people find that eyelid surgery has as profound an effect as any surgery, great confidence regained by enhancing an area that is continually visible.

The first step for anyone considering eyelid or blepharoplasty surgery in Bath should be to book a consolation with a leading surgeon such as Elena. It is not a procedure where much can be discussed over the phone or by email as the way to get best results will vary so much by patient. 

The skill of the cosmetic surgeon is to work out the best method, talk this through with the prospective patient and then give them the room and time to decide if this really is a treatment for them

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Risks Of Eyelid Surgery?

Any surgical procedure comes with some risks. Like any operation, blepharoplasty poses a risk of bleeding, infection, scarring and an adverse reaction to anaesthesia. It’s also possible to have an allergic reaction to the surgical tape or other materials used during or after the procedure. Elena will provide you with further information about the risks and provide you with a detailed consent form during your consultations. This will help you to minimise the risks.

What Care Is Taken Before And After Eyelid Surgery?

Following your initial consultation It is normal to have a second consultation, for you to ask any further questions, once you have had time to consider the different surgical options. After the decision is made, we will carefully prepare for your surgery. During this consultation, you will have a fully informed consent form instructing what to do before and after surgery for the best outcome. The Elena Prousskaia Clinic prides itself on the quality of its aftercare so we will make absolutely sure you know what to expect, and how much rest is needed. We will give you specific instructions that may include how to care for your eyes following surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and when to follow-up with Elena.

Am I A Good Candidate For Blepharoplasty?

Most of our blepharoplasty patients are over 35 years old, however ultimately age does not matter. Elena will look at the condition of your skin regardless of age. Eyelid surgery is typically for those patients who are seeking to reduce droopy eyelids, or “bags” under the eyes, for a younger, more open-eyed look. However, the surgery has also a functional purpose in that some people’s eyelids are sagging to such a degree that it actually interferes with their vision. In these cases, the procedure can make a huge improvement to their daily life.

What Is The Recovery From Blepharoplasty Surgery?

In this first week there will be some puffiness or swelling around the eyes. This is completely normal and part of the post op healing process, and should subside within 7-10 days. The incisions around your eyes may be pink and quite visible, and your eyelids may feel numb for several days. Your eyes may also be watery, dry, and sensitive to light. You may also experience some tenderness and bruising around the eyes resulting in a “black eyed” appearance. Some recommended tips for reducing the swelling around your eyes include: • Sleep elevated on two pillows.
• Use cold compresses – especially in first few days.
• Avoid wearing contacts for this first week but glasses are okay.
• Drink plenty of water and fluids, but avoid alcohol.
• Eat a light healthy food that is low in salt.
• Rest, rest, and more rest. You may also experience some double vision or blurriness a few days post op. Wear dark sunglasses during this period particularly if you’re going outdoors.

Can I have surgery if I wear Glasses?

If you wear contact lenses, you will not be able to wear these in the first days after surgery. As glasses make no direct contact with the eyes, they are safe to use. A patient’s focus will be on resting in those early days of recovery, which means avoiding strenuous physical activities as well as activities that may result in eyestrain. However if you go outdoors, be sure to wear sunglasses. This will hide your eyes from view after surgery has been performed and will also protect your eyelids from direct sun exposure.

How Long Does Surgery Take?

Generally speaking this surgery takes around 2.5 hours, although this varies depending on the nature of the procedure.

Elena was recommended to me and as soon as I met her I felt entirely comfortable. Her explanations made sense in terms of expectations. Having made the big decision I did feel nervous but had absolute trust and confidence in Elena. I knew I was in the best hands. Elena's team is so supportive, my questions were answered with patience and understanding. My care at the McIndoe Centre was excellent. I am five weeks post op for abdominoplasty and liposuction and last week. Quite amazing to see the before and after pictures! I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to meet Elena and have no hesitation in recommending her.

SM – Abdominoplasty & Liposuction

I have been both physically and mentally uncomfortable in my body since I was 12. I was born with ‘breast mutation’ and I first had surgery to correct this through the NHS at 16 years old. The surgery I have had with Elena, 17 years later, has removed the NHS implants, one of which had ruptured, and completely altered the shape of my chest. By doing this she has made me look and feel like a woman for the first time in my life. She is at all times quietly kind and fiercely adept. A true artist. She has surrounded herself with the most wonderful team and I cannot thank them all enough for the new lease of life that I have been given.

EG – Removal & Replacement of Implants

I have been self conscious for the whole of my adult life and I cannot express how much this surgery  has changed things for me. Both mentally and physically. I highly recommend Elena. She supported me throughout my journey from start to finish. Elena is very particular which for me is really important. Elena really took care of me from initial consultation right through to surgery and aftercare.My scaring is minimal and I am absolutely over the moon with my results. Thank you Elena!

JB – Breast Reduction

Elena is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I had PIP implants and was looking to have them changed. I knew Elena was the surgeon to help, she put me at ease and explained my options. The lovely ladies in her office were helpful, I wanted to get sorted asap, when an alternative date was available contacted me straight away. I received outstanding care from start to finish from Elena, her team and the hospital. The aftercare is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, can call any time. I was so relaxed, I knew I was in great hands. The final results are fantastic. Elena has worked magic and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so glad I found her. I can’t thank her and her team enough.

LMS – implant Removal & Replacement

Had surgery with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!
