I'm a 54 year old lady, who for the last 3/4 years kept moaning about the way my eyelids drooped and also having excessive loose skin more so on my right eyelid,and as if that wasn't bad enough both eyes in the corners of my eyes had developed fatty puffiness which looked absolutely awful, whatever eye makeup I would wear did not improve the look. So enough was enough and at this point knew there was one thing to do, and that was surgery. After researching several plastic surgeons and 3 consultations later I finally met Dr Julian De Silva and was instantly connected by his gentle,professional manner, he was very honest about my expectations and what I would achieve from having upper blepharoplasty.
As I left the Harley street clinic I felt optimistic and excited finally I was doing something about it, and in many ways I had delayed going ahead with the surgery as I knew finding the right surgeon was going to be an ordeal and trusting that person.
But after meeting Julian de silva I just knew he was the right surgeon for me.
As soon as I got home and thought things through I had booked a day to go ahead with the surgery.
Day of the surgery I was absolutely petrified so nervous and anxious but I have to say from the moment I arrived at Hammersmith clinic to end of surgery went all so very well could not have had a better team of professional ,wonderful attentive clinicians the anesatis, nurses and of course the surgeon who were brilliant.
After the surgery I was not in any pain had no swelling just a little dried blood on the eyelids only to be expected, I went home with my husband on the train the same day wearing sunglasses and I took 10 days holiday from work and did exactly as I was told and nursed myself it was actually nice having that time off work and just doing nothing for a change, and Dr De SIlva rang me at home the same evening to see how I was feeling and also got a call from the lovely nurse the next day to see how I was.
I can honestly say I had no pain whatsoever, I did have a little swelling in the coming days but nothing like I imagined, but the bruising took the longest to clear which appeared under my eyes, but as time has gone on my eyes have looked better and better. I am absolutely thrilled to bits with the results here I am 5 months later writing this review and just want to thank Julian and all his wonderful staff that dealt with me
I have never looked back since having this procedure done and in a few years if and when I feel I need another facial procedure doing I would not even hesitate to see Dr De Silva again a big thankyou to you all Antonia
