Veins under the eye can be an unsightly concern for those affected. Lower eyelid skin has a very thin dermis and loss of fat volume in the face as we age can all contribute to protruding or visible veins under the eye.

Veins under the eye can be an unsightly concern for those affected. Lower eyelid skin has a very thin dermis and loss of fat volume in the face as we age can all contribute to protruding or visible veins under the eye.

The veins in questions need to be assessed by a medical professional to establish if they can be treated, as the area around the eye is particularly sensitive and unsuitable for the similar treatments for other facial and body veins.

If you are suitable, the treatment is performed using a laser device called Cutera CoolGlide. The treatment involves pulses of light energy carefully directed at the vein, which causes the blood within it to coagulate. This leads to the destruction of the blood vessel which is reabsorbed by the body. Meanwhile blood flow is redirected to deeper veins in the face.

The treatment typically takes 15-30 minutes. A cooling gel is all that is necessary during the procedure.

    Dr Fallhadar did an exceptional job, he made me feel comfortable from start to finish. Fiona his assistant was also incredibly helpful and supportive throughout. They are so natural and I would highly recommend him to anyone, particularly if you want a natural and problem free result

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    I had a breast reduction performed by Mr Navid Jallali. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I have less backache and less neck ache. The size and shape are absolutely fabulous.The clinic was amazing. The nursing staff in the hospital were superb. I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic and Mr Jalalli to anyone wanting a breast reduction.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
