'It's a trend I've been noticing in the last few years,  but I've seen much more men in the last few months by about a third,'

'In the last few years it's gone from one in ten to four in ten patients being male - it's an interesting trend'.

She explained that men she tends to see are in their late thirties on wards.

Dr Aoife went on that she performs treatment under local anaesthetic which makes the cost much lower and has led to an increase in popularity

Dr Aoife added that she performs treatment under local  anaesthetic which makes the cost much lower and has led to an increase in popularity.

'An upper eyelid lift takes about an hour and is £2800, and for both upper and lower it's about twice that,' she added.

'The key is that the patient feels fantastic - not what other people think,' she went on.
