An eyelid correction in The Hague requires no admission in our clinic. It is an outpatient treatment and a relatively simple procedure that takes place under local anesthetic. If you are very nervous, sedative medication may be prescribed. Our patients are allowed to go home after the procedure and after a short rest period. An upper eyelid correction is performed on drooping eyelids. The treatment area is first marked. After a minimal incision, the excess skin and fat tissue is removed. The scar from the suture falls exactly in the natural fold of the skin. This is hardly visible later.
A lower eyelid correction is performed if you have bags under your eyes. Our specialist makes a small incision under the lash line, after which the excess skin and fat tissue under the eyes is removed. The skin is then contracted and stitched. The scar under your eyelashes is hardly visible. An eyelid correction is a painless treatment that takes approximately 1 hour. You are not allowed to drive yourself after the treatment because of the swelling around the eyes and the reduced vision. An eyelid correction has a long-lasting result. With good skin care and a healthy lifestyle, you can enjoy the treatment for 10 to 15 years.

The swelling and redness after the eyelid correction in The Hague can be effectively controlled with cooling glasses. You place a screen between your eyes and the cooling glasses. It helps to sleep with an extra pillow for the first few days, so that your head is higher. Paracetamol can be taken for mild pain complaints.

For the first week, avoid vigorous physical activity, lifting, bending over, straining, and coughing. You should not cut the ends of the stitches yourself.
