Specialist in eyelid corrections

Overhanging upper eyelids can be very annoying - especially if you don't feel tired. An eyelid correction brings that rested, fresh eyes of the past back again. With an upper and/or lower eyelid correction, you will see very quick result. Even any headache symptoms may diminish.

An upper eyelid correction is a relatively minor intervention, but with a great result: you look into the world with open eyes again. How nice it is when that headache disappears, your field of vision widens, your make-up stays on again and when others say: how rested you look! That's what eyelid surgery can do for you.

Photographs will be taken before the treatment and later juxtaposed with post-treatment photographs.

We fully understand how you feel. Eyelid surgery is a procedure you may have been thinking about for years and now finally dare to take the step. We are happy to guide you through the process from A to Z. With a specially developed aftercare protocol, you will recover smoothly with minimal swelling and bruising.

Treatment

Eyelid surgery line

In eyelid surgery, the upper eyelids are first marked off. The scar falls precisely into the natural folds of the skin, making it barely visible later.

Eyelid surgery illustration photo

Eyelid correction is a minor surgical procedure performed, under local anaesthesia, during a day surgery. If you are very nervous before the procedure, we can prescribe sedative medication. It is important that you feel comfortable during the procedure. The eyelids are numbed with small injections, in the skin of the eyelids.

Eyelid correction drawing muscle

As we age, in addition to the skin, the muscle slackens. For a beautiful and natural result, our doctors correct this muscle. During a no-obligation consultation, our specialist will give appropriate advice based on your indication.

Eyelid correction drawing eye

To ensure natural and long-lasting results, it is sometimes necessary to also remove some fat. If we were to leave excess fat in place, it will again cause the eyelids to sag. Also, you will continue to have "fat/puffy" eyes which becomes more prominent if you remove the excess skin but do not take the fat with you.

After we have corrected the skin nicely, the eyelids are sutured. The eyelids are sutured with one continuous, insoluble suture. The scar later falls nicely into the crease so that it is minimally visible.

You will not be allowed to remove the stitches by yourself. You will come for a check-up after one week so that we can see how you are doing. This is also the time when the stitches are removed. This is rather painless and done in no time.

Eyelid surgery is a relatively minor and painless treatment that takes about 45 minutes. You can go home after the procedure and after a short rest period. You should not drive your own car because of the swelling around the eyes and the resulting reduced vision.

The treatment has long-term results. Depending on the shape of your eyes, you will enjoy eyelid correction for at least eight to 10 years. With a healthy lifestyle and good skin care, you will get the most out of the treatment.

Aftercare

Aftercare

Your aftercare is our care. We work with a specially developed aftercare protocol so that you recover smoothly with minimal risk of complications.

You may shower one day (24 hours) after the procedure and gently rinse your eyes. Gently pat the treatment area dry without rubbing. Start cooling immediately after eyelid surgery to reduce swelling and redness. Cool for 15 minutes every hour with a cold pack or frozen peas, with a gauze in between. For the first few days, sleep with an extra pillow so that your head is higher. For mild pain, paracetamol is sufficient.

Avoid strenuous physical activity such as lifting, bending, or intense sports in the first two weeks after your eyelid surgery. Sutures will be removed after 7 to 9 days. Do not smoke until then. After 2 to 3 weeks, the wounds are closed and the scabs are gone, and you can wear make-up and contact lenses again. After 6 to 8 weeks, you will come for a check-up. Avoid bright sun, tanning beds and sauna for the first 3 months.

Risks

Risks

Eyelid surgery is a relatively minor procedure, with no major risks or risk of complications. It is normal to see redness, swelling and bruising around the eyes after treatment. You may experience mild post-treatment pain that passes on its own or with a paracetamol. Occasionally, complications occur, such as post-operative bleeding, eye inflammation, uneven eyelids, cysts or scarring. When in doubt, always contact the specialists at SkinSurgery Clinics.

Surgical technique

Besides excess skin, there is often excess muscle and excess fat. As you get older, muscle slackens in addition to skin, giving the fatty tissue room to emerge.

Brighten your eyes package

Drooping eyelids can make you look tired, even if you are rested and have had enough sleep. Another annoying side effect is that you start pulling your eyebrows a lot to literally 'hold up' the eyelids. Here, there may be pressure on the forehead or you may suffer from dry eyes.

Excellent service

I was 1000% pleased with the treatment. I was very well talked through everything and put at ease. I can't say anything about the end result yet, because I'm still wearing patches.

Who is eyelid surgery suitable for?

Undergoing eyelid surgery can be an exciting step, have you been thinking about it for some time but unsure when it is the right time? If you look in the mirror and see a gloomy or tired face around the eyes, even when you are well rested, you may have already considered doing something about it. Eyelid surgery can help with this. Overhanging eyelids can also cause symptoms, such as limited vision and headaches due to extra exertion of the eye muscles. To determine whether you qualify for an upper eyelid correction and/or lower eyelid correction, or a combined procedure, a no-obligation consultation with our specialists is the best first step.

Cost of eyelid surgery

SkinSurgery Clinics is transparent and fair in its prices. We consider quality important, and therefore only work with experienced cosmetic doctors. Because everyone is unique, what can be corrected to the eyelids can vary from person to person. Sometimes it is only necessary to remove excess skin, fat pockets or muscle tissue. In our clinic, we consider two things important in this: long-term and natural results.

Upper eyelid surgery bilateral - skin resection

If there is only excess skin, eyelid surgery with skin resection will suffice. The underlying muscle tissue or fat pockets will not be corrected in this case.

Upper eyelid surgery both sides - skin resection and adjusting muscle

Often, in addition to excess skin, there is also sagging of the orbicularis oculi: the muscle used to close and open the eyelids. By removing a small strip, the result becomes more natural than if we were to remove only skin while there are fat pockets and sagging muscle.

Upper eyelid surgery both sides - skin resection, muscle and fat pockets removed

With somewhat thick eyelids, or puffy eyes, it is often necessary to remove some fat in addition to excess skin and muscle. This fat 'pushes' against the septum, muscle and skin, so to speak, and therefore partially causes the droopy eyelids. Therefore, to ensure long-term results, it is necessary to remove the fat as well in this indication.

How long does recovery take after eyelid surgery

Due to our years of experience in performing eyelid corrections, we work with a special pre- and aftercare protocol. This way, you are optimally prepared and recover without complications.

Usually, pain relief with paracetamol is sufficient after surgery. We advise you not to drive a car on the day of surgery and as long as your vision is impaired. After a week, you will visit us for a check-up to remove the stitches.

You should not use contact lenses or make-up for 2 weeks. We advise you not to smoke for 2 weeks after the procedure. Smoking increases the risk of complications. We advise you not to expose the scars to UV sunlight and/or the sunbed for 3 months after surgery.

When can I wear lenses and make-up again?

We recommend not wearing lenses or make-up for at least 2 weeks after your eyelid surgery. It is important to leave the treated area alone as much as possible so that it can recover properly and you can enjoy a radiant look faster. A week after your eyelid correction, you will come for a check-up and the stitches will be removed for our specialist.

Post-treatments and check-ups after eyelid surgery

7-9 days after your eyelid surgery, the stitches and plasters will be removed during your check-up appointment. 6-8 weeks after surgery, you will come for a check-up with one of our specialists.

Aftercare after eyelid surgery

Due to our many years of experience in performing eyelid corrections, we work with a special pre- and aftercare protocol. This way, you are optimally prepared and recover without complications.

Usually, pain relief with paracetamol is sufficient after surgery.
We advise you not to drive a car on the day of surgery and as long as your vision is obstructed.

You should not use contact lenses for 2 weeks. You can use make-up again after removing the sutures, when all scabs have disappeared.
We advise you not to smoke until the sutures are removed. Smoking increases the risk of complications. We advise you not to expose the scars to UV sunlight and/or tanning beds for 3 months after surgery.

What can you expect after eyelid surgery?

An eyelid correction can be a solution when you experience complaints such as drooping eyelids, heavy upper eyelids, a tired look, but also when you consider the treatment from cosmetic reasons. You recover quickly from an eyelid correction; it is a relatively minor procedure, performed under local anaesthetic. You can already see the result of an eyelid correction about 2 weeks after the treatment, although slight swelling may still be present. The scar will eventually fade and fall nicely into the skin fold and is therefore almost invisible. The scar needs 6-12 months to fully recover, so protect it well when you go out in the sun. You can return to work after a week.

What is the difference in price of upper eyelid surgery

At Skin + Surgery Clinics, we prioritize transparency and fairness in our pricing. We emphasize quality, collaborating exclusively with seasoned cosmetic doctors. Given that each individual is unique, the corrective approach to eyelids can differ from person to person. Sometimes, only surplus skin requires removal, while in other cases, excess fat or muscle tissue may also be involved. Within our clinic, two key principles guide our approach: long-lasting and natural results.

 

Upper eyelid surgery bilateral - skin resection

If there is only excess skin, eyelid surgery with skin resection will suffice. The underlying muscle tissue or fat pockets will not be corrected in this case.

 

Upper eyelid surgery both sides - skin resection and adjusting muscle

Often, in addition to excess skin, there is sagging of the orbicularis oculi: the muscle used in closing and opening the eyelids. By removing a small strip, the result becomes more natural than if we only removed skin while there is excess and sagging muscle.

 

Upper eyelid surgery both sides - skin resection, muscle and fat pockets removed

For somewhat thick eyelids, or puffy eyes, it is often necessary to remove some fat in addition to excess skin and muscle. This fat 'pushes' against the septum, muscle and skin, so to speak, and therefore partially causes the drooping eyelids. Therefore, to ensure long-term results, it is necessary to remove the fat as well in this indication.

How does eyelid surgery work?

Performing an eyelid correction requires skilled work. There are different types of eyelid surgery, all with different intended results. To determine your eligibility for the procedure and which technique best suits your desired result, a preliminary examination is needed. During the preliminary examination, there is room to ask all your questions. Pictures are also taken for the medical record. With the preliminary examination, we ensure that you have a realistic expectation of the intended results.

Who is this correction suitable for?

Eyelid surgery is often a contemplation that spans a period of time, yet the timing of taking this step varies for each individual. If you peer into the mirror and notice a perpetually weary or fatigued appearance, even when adequately rested, you may have already entertained the idea of addressing it. Eyelid surgery presents a viable solution in such instances. However, it's imperative to recognize that eyelid correction extends beyond mere cosmetic enhancement. Drooping eyelids can provoke various issues, including potential vision impairment and headaches due to increased muscle strain to keep the eyes open. Irrespective of the underlying motivation for seeking eyelid surgery, determining your candidacy is paramount. The optimal approach entails scheduling a no-obligation consultation with our specialists.

What exactly is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery entails the removal of surplus skin and fat from either the upper or lower eyelids, or both. From a cosmetic standpoint, this procedure can result in a rejuvenated and rested appearance. Alternatively, eyelid correction may also be undertaken for medical reasons, particularly when overhanging eyelids contribute to symptoms. Regardless of the motivation, the surgical procedure remains consistent in both scenarios.
