Abnormally high scar on the upper eyelids (Red Arrow), 50% higher than natural skin crease (Green Arrow indicates normal eyelid crease)
NS a woman in her 20s from London, had noticed excess skin overhanging her upper eyelids, with multiple lines in the eyelid, that was weighing her eyes down and making her look older and tired. While on holiday, she had decided to undergo eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, in Asia. However the surgery had been a disappointment and had not given the rejuvenation she had hoped and she had not been happy with the results. After the surgery there was asymmetry with multiple folds of skin and lines around the upper eyelids and a more tired and older appearance. She went to see Dr. Julian De Silva a facial cosmetic and plastic surgeon based in London for revision eyelid surgery. Dr. Julian De Silva found on assessment that she eyelid scars that were 50% higher than normal, making them visible on her face and creating un-natural multiple skin creases her upper eyelid. According to Dr. De Silva “Multiple skin creases and lines in the upper eyelids is an appearance that is associated with facial ageing and when asymmetrical is very noticeable. Having multiple lines can make a younger patient look older and is an avoidable with meticulous attention to detail. Scars in the upper eyelids can be very difficult to correct as once made, and Revision plastic surgery must be focused on adapting natural lines in the skin to hide these scars. The anatomy that makes up the eyelids includes very delicate layers of soft tissues, damage to these tissues can be very difficult to repair, in some cases only a 50% improvement is possible, if patients expectations from surgery are very high, I will advise against surgery” Dr. De Silva performed revision blepharoplasty surgery on NS and her eyelids are more symmetrical and she remains very happy with the results.
“My short journey with Surgeon De Silva and his entire team members has been nothing but fabulous. From My consultation day till my last post op appointment, I felt nothing but a huge satisfaction. His approach has always been so humble and generous at all time. His information in regards to my entire pre & post surgery plan were very detailed. After noticing his achievements and awards in the world of plastic surgery, I knew straight away that I am in safe hands from day one. Every member that i met in the centre were so welcoming, friendly and made me at ease all the time. My surgery went very smoothly without any complications as planned. I am extremely thrilled, happy and satisfied with the result and can’t thank him and his entire team enough for giving me my new confidence. I highly recommend any individual out there who wish the best result from the best surgeon in the town. Once again thank you so much doc and your entire

This 49-year old patient had noticed eyelid changes and undergone blepharoplasty surgery with a consultant in UK. She was very disappointed by the results as she didn’t look rejuvenated and continued to have drooping of the upper eyelid skin after the surgery. She was told this could only be improved with a further more invasive brow lift surgery. She was reluctant to have this surgery and went to see Dr. Julian De Silva a facial cosmetic and plastic surgeon based in London for a further opinion. Dr. De Silva advised her the appearance could be improved with a revision blepharoplasty and under local anaesthesia, although most of the incision could be hidden in the natural skin creases, a small 8mm part of the incision was hidden at the corner of the eye in the area where she had commonly occurring lines also know as crows feet. She underwent Revision facial plastic surgery under that gave her the result that she had always wanted. After surgery numerous people commented on how she looked rejuvenated, though no one could tell she had undergone surgery.
Dr . Dr De Silva and Anita, Frankly, when I first came to you for consultation I was a bit sceptical as I already had done my Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid) two years before at age 47 with a good surgeon on the recommendation of another good doctor…and the result was poor. One day I was reading good things about you in a Magazine and decided to check you out. As soon as I met you and Anita I had a good feeling.. After the consultation I felt reassured that it was going to be good this time as your mannerism was professional and your eye for detail impressed me. Its now two months since you did my operation and I am so grateful of the amazing results that you have achieved with me. You made me younger and, shall I dare to say, more beautiful. Just after a week my friends who did not know about this operation were complimenting me for looking so good. They were asking me if I had been on a resting holiday or if I had changed my regime on creams and diet. I must emphasise how impressed I was with the way you showed lots of passion for perfection without loosing the human side. You made me feel protected, looked after and helped me with the emotional side of my up and downs during the process. Also, I greatly appreciated the fact that you have given me lots of your time to make sure that my expectations and hopes were met and you never once showed me that you were eager to finish with me. Thank You to Both!
