“I thought about having upper blepharoplasty for two years and during this time I fully researched the treatment. I wanted to have the procedure carried out by a surgeon who only operated on the eye area rather than a general cosmetic surgeon. I also wanted to have my treatment at Moorefields, again because the hospital only specialises in eye care.
I found Ms Pari Shams very warm and reassuring as well as extremely professional. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and listened carefully to my hopes for the treatment result. I was very keen that I look natural after the procedure (I would rather have more work done in 7 or 10 years time than look startled now). She took all of this on board and really understood me.
The first photo was taken the day before my surgery. As you can see my upper eyelids looked heavy and I felt that they made me look tired. I wanted them to feel lighter and for my upper eyelashes to be more prominent rather than hidden by the crease of my lid.
On the day of my operation (mid June 2023), I discussed the possibility of not being sedated. I knew that the local anaesthetic would prevent the operation being uncomfortable and thought that perhaps it was unnecessary, but after a discussion with both Ms Shams and the very kind anaesthetist I took their advice and was given a mild sedation. I was comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure and able to speak to Ms Shams when I wanted to.
After the operation, which I think took around an hour, I was wheeled back to my room with patches over my eyes that felt reassuringly firm. After an hour the nurse removed my patches and a light meal was brought to me and soon after husband came to collect me.
That evening Ms Shams phoned me at home to ask how I felt and to make sure that I fully understood how to look after my eyes. I told her I had had a bit of a headache when I got back from the hospital and took paracetamol, she said that was just from the anaesthetic and I shouldn’t feel any more pain, she was absolutely correct, my eyes didn’t ever hurt. Ms Shams called again the second evening to check on my and told me I could contact her any time if I was concerned.
The second photo was taken two weeks post op and the third was taken today at the end of September (3 months post op).
I am absolutely delighted with my lovely new look. They look very natural, brighter and younger. Strangely, the thing that I enjoy most is the larger field of vision that the procedure has given me, which makes me feel younger too!
Thank you so much Ms Shams, I’m so happy!”
“I highly recommend and have full trust and confidence in Miss Shams. She has performed several eyelid surgical procedures on me and I would not want to see anyone else.She has always clearly explained the procedures, risks and charges. I am extremely satisfied with the results of her work. Miss Shams’ after care has also exceeded my expectations – she has checked in on me via phone and email when needed and has been available for questions outside of appointments.”
