What is the Only You Lid Lift?
The Only You Lid Lift is a local anaesthetic procedure that removes excess skin form the upper or lower eye lids and combines this with the use of nano fat grafting to enhance skin quality through the rejuvenating ability of nano fat.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on which set of eyelids are being treated (upper, lower or both) the procedure can take from and hour to 2 hours.
How does the nano fat work?
The nano fat is injected directly in to the skin itself which has the effect of plumping the skin and then has additional rejuvenating qualities related to the stem cell content of the nano fat and cellular growth factors contained within the nano fat (for more information see the separate section on nanofat).
What is the recovery time?
As with any surgery there is associated bruising which can last for up to 2 weeks though typically is more in the region of a week. Sutures are removed at one week. The nano fat will take a few weeks to change colour from a pale yellow to normal skin colour and the areas treated with nano fat can appear slightly redder than normal for up to 3 months.
What else do I need to know?
You will be seen by a consultant plastic surgeon who will assess if you are suitable for the procedure and full details of the surgery, aftercare, risks and complications will be discussed with you. 3D images will be taken and you will have an opportunity to discuss any questions you have about the procedure with your surgeon.
