Our eyes are often the first area where the ageing process is visible and eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat on upper and/or lower eyelids to improve the appearance of the eyes.
As well as dealing with skin folds/hooding of the lids above the eyes and swelling/bags below the eyes, Mr Thornton is also able to redrape the fat on the lower lid to reduce the appearance of hollowing/tear trough. He often combines eyelid surgery with non-surgical treatments, such as injection of fat, dermal fillers, or the use of muscle relaxing injections (Botox), to get the best result for his patients.
Overly prominent ears can cause self-awareness and embarrassment and a pinnaplasty is a straightforward procedure to deal with this problem. Mr Thornton positions the ears back closer to the side of the head, using cartilage scoring and/or suture suspension. The surgery leaves a well-hidden scar that sits out of sight in the crease behind the ears, and any permanent sutures used are clear and buried inside so will not be visible.
