By EL, Lower Blepharoplasty with fat transfer, laser and milia removal on May 19, 2020
I had lower eye blepharoplasty, with fat transfer, laser resurfacing and milia removal. I had researched and wanted the surgery for about 2 years before deciding to have some consultations I had two consultations with a well known surgery group but did not feel confident. I then met with Dr De Silva and knew as soon as the consultation was over that I felt confident enough to go ahead and am so glad that I did. My pre treatment appointments and advice were so thorough, and any questions that I had were answered so quickly by the clinics staff. The day of my surgery was seamless, and I felt in completely safe hands the entire time from the nurse Ellie, to the Dr performing sedation and Dr De Silva.

I recently underwent an upper & lower Blepharoplasty with Dr DeSilva and the results are outstanding! From my very first consultation and after lots of research, I knew that I had made the right decision to go with Dr De Silva. Naturally I was nervous but his amazing team were all very kind, extremely friendly and totally relaxed. The procedure was carried out under sedation and that too was fantastic. I can honestly say I felt no pain during and after the procedure and within 1 hour afterwards I was on my way home. I would 100% fully recommend Dr De Silva to anybody considering a procedure such as mine. Thank you Dr De Silva, you have instilled a new found confidence in me.
Lower Blepharoplasty Dec 25, 2019
I had lower blepharoplasty surgery as I had a lot of wrinkles in my lower eyelids. I have big eyes so the wrinkles were very obvious and only being in my mid-thirty’s I felt it aged me. The surgery was only an hour long and Dr Julian and his team were all really nice and caring. I am extremely happy with the results and my eyes look so much better! The wrinkles are hardly there and I actually like how my eyes look in photos now! I definitely recommend Dr Julian and his team.
Depending on the facelift type and if any other treatments are being undertaken, surgery can take anywhere from two to four hours or more.
Using his experience as a facial plastic surgeon, the current state of your face and skin, and information gained from discussion during your consultation, Dr De Silva will recommend the optimal surgery to undergo in order to achieve your desired outcome.
One of the most important parts of surgery is choosing your surgeon, especially for surgery on the delicate and complex face. There are a few things to ensure when it comes to making your choice:
Patients come from all over London, the UK, and the world to be treated by Dr De Silva and his team, who treat each patient like family.
As part of your procedure, we may recommend other treatments, such as a neck lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) or fat transfer to supplement and enhance the end result.
These will be conducted during your surgery to combine recovery time.
Where possible, Dr De Silva hides incisions within the natural creases in the face. 99% of scars are virtually invisible, achieved by using meticulous technique and 3 levels of stitches.
Before surgery is commenced, you are put to sleep, before having a local anaesthetic applied.
Aside from mild discomfort, many patients report having very little pain after surgery, and often only require basic pain relief, if any.
A good candidate for a facelift has facial ageing with symptoms of sagging of the skin and soft tissues of the face, deepening of the nasolabial folds (a line between nose and mouth) and loose skin below the neck with loss of the angle between the chin and neck. The patient should be in good health, and a non-smoker with have realistic goals of rejuvenating their face.
There is no fixed age limit to undergo cosmetic surgery; the person must have good health and be a non-smoker as safety always comes first
All these patients underwent facelift surgery with Dr De Silva. We encourage patients to watch one or two videos of patient experiences to have a good understanding of healing and the recovery period. Dr. De Silva and his team will provide support and reassurance during your recovery, we believe that being a well-informed patient is helpful to most patients undergoing facelift surgery.
