The eyes are usually the first thing you notice about someone and as they often reveal the early signs of ageing, Mr Tariq Ahmad sees many men and women seeking treatment to improve the appearance of the eye area. On the upper lid, the issue is folding, creasing and hooding which obscures the natural shape of the eyelid, and on the lower lid, it is usually a case of bagging and pouching as the skin and muscles become more lax. Eyelid surgery, known as a blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can tackle either the upper or lower lid or both, depending on the patient’s individual requirements. There are certain things that eyelid surgery can’t achieve, such as remove dark circles, eradicate crow’s feet around the eyes, or tackle a drooping brow, but Mr Ahmad will explain this all fully at the consultation. There are a number of alternative procedures he can offer aimed at treating these concerns.
