Eyes, Windows To The Soul 

The eyes, it is often said, are the windows to the soul. It is undeniable that eyes are important in communication, with eye contact being one of the key metrics by which we judge others, both consciously and subconsciously. And when someone is looking into our eyes, any defects we may have, such as drooping eyelids, can drastically affect that judgment. In addition to this, peripheral vision can be affected by problems with the upper eyelid, which may cause problems driving, reading and pretty much all of day-to-day life.

The procedure for repairing or reconstructing the eyelid is known as blepharoplasty. This can sound quite frightening, because most of us are very sensitive about our eyes, but in the hands of a skilled surgeon it’s a very simple process which is usually completed in under three hours.

Although the name blepharoplasty was only coined in the early 19th century, there are records of similar procedures taking place as far back as first century Rome, in Aulus Cornelis Celsus’s De Medicina

In blepharoplasty, great care is taken to avoid leaving permanent marks, so the incisions are made along the existing skin creases of the upper and lower eyelids. Following the operation there will naturally be bruising and swelling around the eyes, but this will subside within a week or two.



Blepharoplasty is one of the more common and popular cosmetic surgery procedures, and has been particularly rising in popularity among men. Its beneficial effects and relative swiftness (patients will be back home after a few hours) have seen increasing numbers of men opting for blepharoplasty for both cosmetic and therapeutic reasons. Across the genders, 2016 saw blepharoplastic procedures rise by 12 percent to 8,689 operations. As a procedure that can both make you a safer driver and improve your interactions with others, it could quite literally change your life.

Dr Celin has been practicing since 1982 and is well respected in the medical profession as well as by his existing and past patients.

Dr Celin has always been polite, gentle and an incredibly calming gentleman despite my needle phobia. I’ve used Dr Celin for 3 different procedures, all with outstanding results. I couldn’t be happier with his work.

I and two female friends in London had upper and lower eye lifts (blepharoplasty)  over the last ten years. The results were excellent, and subtle, friends said ‘you look younger, good, etc. The pre and post op treatment and care were excellent, and I would highly recommend him. He also does excellent botox and filler treatments.   I have always found him incredibly courteous and pleasant.

Dr John Celin MD has been my cosmetic surgeon for many years. I have had a face lift, upper lip laser, chin implant and botox from him. He is fair with his prices, curteous and professional at all times. He puts you at ease and gently talks you through the whole procedure. I would recommend him to anyone (especially the nervous). I am about to see him again after a break of a few years.
