I was very fortunate to choose Mr Bowyer for my recent eye surgery. I was obviously very anxious about the procedure, as with any surgery, however Mr Bowyer was so professional, reassuring and realistic in what I could expect to achieve by undergoing surgery. Thank you Mr Bowyer and your Team ( in particular Jill), who was in regular contact with me throughout the process. The consultation period to follow up appointment, after surgery, was just exceptional. I am so pleased with the results. No more tried looking eyes! Thank you once again. October 2017.
Upper Eyelid Surgery performed by Mr Pedro Muel-Gonzalez
I had considered upper eyelid surgery for some time and had researched the pros and cons of the procedure at length. I attended my first Consultation at the Eyelid Centre with Mr Muel-Gonzalez amd I explained the problems I was encountering with my eyes. He took several measurements and we discussed the possible outcome the procedure might produce. He also explained what the surgery would entail, the recovery period required and any potential risks.I found him very easy to talk to and was confident that I would be in the best hands for my surgery.
Before I left the Clinic, Jill Heath checked that I had all the information required and made sure that I understood everything that was going to be happening. I felt very reassured by the care and attention showed to me.
I have had a few major operations in my life ( that I have taken in my stride) but never to my face. I was understandably extremely nervous on the day of surgery. I was soon put at my ease and taken care of in a professional, caring and courteous manner. I was listened to at all times and throughout the procedure everything was explained to me. They made sure that I knew how to care for scars and swelling before I left and I was told not to hesitate to call if I had any concerns. Jill even phoned me the following day to check that all was well.
I expected to be very sore and badly bruised for a couple of weeks. However, I was lucky that after the first few days the swelling and bruising were much improved. I attended Mr Gonzalez' clinic one week after surgery, where he assessed my eyes and removed the stitches. We were both delighted with the result. Not only is there the obvious significant cosmetic difference to the look of my eyes, I feel that I can see more widely and I feel brighter. My previous headaches have ceased as I am not straining my forehead to lift my eyes open and the watering of my eyes from feeling tired has not re-occured
It is now just over two weeks since my surgery and I have applied some mascara like an excited child, although I will have to wait a few more days until I can use eye shadow. The scars are healing so well I am sure that they will hardly be noticeable once covered. I cannot thank Mr Muel-Gonzalez and his Team enough for the difference this has made to me.
Eyes are the window to the world and I think I've been given a new outlook - in many ways. December 2017

To Mr Bowyer, Jill and all of the staff at The Eyelid Centre.
Thank you so much for all of your care and attention, before, during and after my blepharoplasty and most of all thank you for my " new eyes".
I really am happy with the outsome, better than I could have imagined. September 2017
Mrs P W of Stoke-on-Trent
Can I say how pleased I am with both the professionalism, care and consideration shown by you (Jill) and the team and thank you to Mr Muel-Gonzalez for the excellent job he did.
The procedure was pain free, as was the post operative recovery ( other than a slight headache for a few days). I think the results so far are fantastic ( still have a bit of swelling in the right eyelid) so a big thank you for the help and support.
I would recommend your centre for this treatment ( Upper Blepharoplasty) to any one. October 2017
Mr K P of Leicester
I had been very self conscious about my eyes for a long time. I had heavy eyelids with folds of skin that were making my eyes look closed and feeling as I was squinting. After much discussion at home and lots of research online, I decided to arrange a consultation with Mr Bowyer at The Eyelid Centre. After a long discussion and examination it was decided I would benefit from Bi-lateral Upper Blepharoplasty on each eye.
I was extremely nervous leading up to my appointment to have the procedure done as I worry a lot. As it turned out I was worrying needlessly. From the moment I arrived at the clinic I was looked after and put at ease by Jill Heath and her collegue, who held my hand a lot, as it happened quite literally and comforted me by talking to me throughout the whole procedure.
Mr Bowyer was talking to me and explaining as he completed the procedure.
Back for stitches to be removed within a week and after 2 weeks I am now looking and feeling 100%.
This is a very efficient, professional team and I would highly recommend them to anyone. October 2017

"Mr Bowyer Thank you for making my dream a reality: many thanks for your work and support"
Just a line to thank you so much for my eye op, I feel so lucky I can read, paint, see the computer, play the piano & watch a golf ball, ‘what more could a girl wish for’. Best wishes to you and your family. Thanks again.
I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for a superb job on my eyelid. I have continued to enjoy no further issues and am delighted with the outcome of the operation. It is always of concern when noting the location of the operation but you clearly have excellent experience and professionalism and I am very grateful to have been one of your patients

After being unhappy with the appearance of my upper eyelids for many years, I contacted the Eyelid Centre in early October 2017. Jill Heath talked me through the whole process from inital consultancy to the surgery itself and re-assured me on my concerns, which were mainly that my eyelids would not be symmetrical and I would look permanently surprised, following the surgery.
At the Consultancy with Mr Pedro Muel-Gonzalez, he also reassured me that he would only take a small amount of excess skin from each eyelid, to achieve the appearance that my eyes looked more open and less tired.
I had the surgery on 21st November 2017, under local anaesthetic. The whole experience was very relaxing and comfortable, it was more like a spa treatment than eye surgery. Jill and Helen attended with Mr Muel-Gonzalez and they chatted to me all the way through. There was no pain and it took only an hour and a half. After the op there was a bit of pain, which was completely relieved with painkillers.
By Christmas all the bruising and swelling was gone and I was able to at last put on my eyeshadow on my upper lids just above the lashline. I don't look permanently tired and miserable. I am delighted with the results and am so glad I went ahead .
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Eyelid Centre to anyone considering this type of surgery. The Team's expertise, professionalism and care both during and after surgery has been incredible.
Mrs K T of South Staffs
May I take this opportunity to thank you (Jill Heath) and Mr Bowyer again......I am absolutely thrilled with the results! No eyebags anymore. Yaaaayyy
Mrs C A from Cheadle, Staffs
My overall experience, at The Eyelid Centre,was very pleasant: the results of the op ( Upper Blepharoplasty and Browpexy) are excellent and the whole time I felt very well cared for and the centre of everyones' attention.
It was all so easy and I realise deceptively professional, without being formal. I am very happy and confident to recommend you to any prospective patients. I knew that everything possible was being done in my best interest.
Mrs S F Lancs
To Mr Gonzalez, Jill and Helen. Thank you for your undivided attention, care and expertise, with all aspects of my upper eye surgery, which was a total success and I am very pleased with, enabling me to see much better, eradicating the squinting and my eyes looking closed. Also, as a hidden bonus, it has certainly freshened up my face overall.
The operation was pain free and the procedure was explained beforehand in great detail and the recovery is proceeding very well, with Jill at the end of the line 24/7 if any questions/problems occur, which I must add have not been needed, but very reassuring all the same.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Eyelid Centre for its professionalism and moment to moment care, both before and after the operation. Simply exceptional treatment in all areas and I always felt that everything which was done was always in my best interests. G.D. Mid Warwickshire.
