“After a number of years researching on upper eyelid blepharoplasty and multiple consultations, I decided to go ahead with the surgery with Dr Elizabeth Hawkes. My eyelids have became heavy due to age and lack of sleep so I had a constant tired look that no expensive cosmetic treatments throughout the years could get rid of. I was not after anything too drastic but I wanted to look more refreshed and get my almond shaped eyes back. Dr Hawkes is very approachable and thorough, she put me at ease with realistic expectations and having seen her previous work and background, I booked myself in for surgery the week after seeing her. It's been only 9 days in but I have not had any discomfort and as the swelling goes down, I can already see her subtle yet effective work. I look younger, have a fresher look overall and most importantly, she's kept my original eye shape. Brilliant work, very pleased with the results. “

    Blepharoplasty (eye lid surgery)
    Dr Hawkes is amazing! I am a 50 year old mixed race man and had been incredibly unhappy about my bulging lower eye bags for years, which made me look tired and old. I finally made the decision to get them done and after a great deal of research, I opted for transconjunctival (hidden incision) blepharoplasty and wanted the very best surgeon to complete the procedure. After searching the Internet for the best oculoplastic surgeon In London, I found Dr Hawkes. I liked the fact that Dr Hawkes only does eyes and as well as her private practice, also holds a senior NHS consultant position in a well regarded hospital. I was confident I had found the best surgeon, but after meeting Dr Hawkes, I knew I made the right decision. She is calm, confident and understandably incredibly knowledgeable. During the consultation, Dr Hawkes took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for and recommended transconjunctival blepharoplasty with fat repositioning and explained the procedure in detail. She didn’t put any pressure on me to make a decision and actually advised that I take time to think about it and offered to see me again should I have any further questions. There was however no need and I booked the procedure the next day and had surgery 3 weeks later to coincide with some pre-booked leave. On the day of the procedure, Dr Hawkes once again took me through exactly what she was going to do and the procedure went smoothly. It is now one week since I had surgery and I have just returned from my first follow up appointment with Dr Hawkes, who unlike other surgeons I have read about, insists on doing these herself. All I can say is wow! The recovery was far quicker and easier than I thought it would be and the results have completely exceeded all of my expectations!!! The unsightly bags that made me look old and tired are completely gone. I have absolutely no scars and the results are completely natural. Even my partner has been blown away by the results and keeps commenting on how much younger I look! So for anyone contemplating blepharoplasty and who wants a fresh, natural, younger look (I keep being told I now look like I’m in my 30’s), I highly recommend Dr Hawkes. She is fantastic and I am so pleased I found her.

    Elizabeth performed blepharoplasty and a brow lift on me 7 weeks ago at the Cadogan Clinic and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. She has done an exceptional job and I cannot recommend her more highly. She clearly explained the procedure always answering any questions and put my mind at ease pre and post the operation.

    I had lower lid blepharoplasty - eye bag removal surgery carried out- revision surgery. I had gone somewhere else last year the end result I was not happy with. After some research I came across Dr Hawkes page and after my consultation I was confident to go ahead with the surgery second time round. I’m extremely happy with the results, it’s been over a week now since my surgery. If you are considering eye surgery if any sort my advice would be to see a specialist in that field only, my previous surgeon was an all rounder!

    Elizabeth is one of the best doctors I've ever had the pleasure of being treated by. She very distinctly identified the issue I was having around my eyes and explained everything in such clear and perfect sense. She was sensitive and thoughtful and just all-round really great. I recommend Dr. Elizabeth Hawkes 1000%.

    Dr Hawkes was friendly and professional. During my initial consultation she clearly explained the procedure and I felt confident about having the upper blepharoplasty performed by her. The surgery went well and Dr Hawkes made herself available by text after the procedure. I was therefore able to have any concerns about my healing quickly answered. I am very happy with my post operative results which have exceeded my expectations.

    Miss Elizabeth Hawkes is at the top of the craft and you couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable, sociable and honest doctor. I went for information on eye bag removal and instead got the most valuable info that has helped me resolve an eye issue I've been suffering with for almost 30 years. I am ecstatic and delighted that she was able to diagnose my condition, she is extremely knowledgeable in both plastic surgery and ophthalmology and I have complete trust in her.
