Puffiness is caused by the skin and muscles around the eyes becoming sagging and / or a fat accumulation under the eye. We recommend a lower eyelid correction to look younger and happier again.

Quality is our passion
Your first step towards better vision and a fresher appearance is to make an appointment with one of our doctors. You can easily arrange this via our website or by calling our clinic. In a personal conversation in a relaxed setting you can ask all your questions, express your wishes and express your expectations. Our specialist assesses whether you are eligible for an eyelid correction in Rotterdam.
In the free consultation you will receive all information and expert and honest advice about the treatment including aftercare, the expected end result and the costs. If you have an eyelid correction, pictures will be taken of the drooping eyelids or bags under the eyes. These pictures are later placed next to the pictures after the surgery to view the result.
An eyelid correction in Rotterdam requires no admission . It is an outpatient treatment under local anesthetic. The procedure takes about an hour. If you are very tense before the procedure, our specialist can give you sedative medication. The treatment is painless. You can go home after the correction of your upper or lower eyelids and after a short rest period. It is wise to bring someone with you or have someone pick you up, because you are not allowed to drive a car after the procedure because of the swelling in the eyes.
With an upper eyelid correction, a cut is made in the crease of the upper eyelid. The excess skin and fat tissue surplus are removed. The scar of the suture falls in the natural crease of the upper eyelid and is hardly visible. With a lower eyelid correction, an incision is made just below the lash line or on the inside of the lower eyelid. After this, the puffiness is removed. The tiny scar is hardly visible. With good skin care and a healthy lifestyle, you will enjoy eyelid correction in Rotterdam for 10 to 15 years.
Skin + Surgery wants to be the best clinic, with the best treatment and aftercare. We have developed a special aftercare protocol for a quick recovery after eyelid correction in Rotterdam. With the use of cooling glasses (every 15 minutes) immediately after the procedure, swelling and redness are effectively controlled. An extra pillow while sleeping (so that your head is higher) also helps. A paracetamol is allowed for minor pain complaints. You can shower after a day and rinse your eyes with a gentle spray. Pat the treatment area dry.
During the first week, do not perform strenuous activity and avoid bending, lifting, coughing and straining. The stitches are removed after 7 to 9 days. Don’t do this yourself! Smoking is bad for wound healing. Make-up is allowed again after the stitches have been removed and the crusts have disappeared. Do not expose the scars to sunlight or the tanning bed for the first three months. You will come for a check-up up to 6 weeks after the eyelid correction.
The risks and chance of complications with an eyelid correction in Rotterdam are small. Sometimes bleeding may occur or the eyelid may pull slightly due to a reaction of the scar. This will disappear by itself. You may experience an eye infection, fluid build-up around the eyes or numbness of the eyelids. These complaints also disappear over time. Occasionally a cyst can develop. If in doubt, contact your Skin + Surgery doctor who is ready for you.
