Specialist in eyelid corrections

It can be quite bothersome—especially if you don't feel tired. An eyelid correction restores that refreshed, youthful look from before. With lower and/or upper eyelid correction, you'll see results very quickly. Even any headache complaints may diminish.

An eyelid correction is a relatively minor procedure, but with significant results: you'll be looking at the world with an open gaze again. How wonderful it is when that headache disappears, your field of vision expands, your makeup stays in place again, and when others say: you look so refreshed! That's what an eyelid correction can do for you.

We are happy to assist you

Always the right eyelid surgery

High-quality team. Excellent aftercare. Smooth recovery. All they see is you beaming.

Surgical technique

In addition to excess skin, there is often excess muscle and fat tissue. As you age, in addition to skin, muscle also slackens, giving fatty tissue room to come forward.

Droopy 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' your eyelids.

Consultation with doctor

An eyelid correction is always preceded by a no-obligation consultation. In a personal meeting with our surgeons in a relaxed setting, you can ask all your questions, discuss your wishes and express your expectations about the treatment.

Our dedicated specialist will assess your eligibility for upper and/or lower eyelid correction and provide clear explanations about the treatment, aftercare, risks, costs and the expected natural end result. Photographs will be taken before treatment and later placed next to 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 after-care protocol, you will recover smoothly with minimal swelling and bruising.

Treatment

Treatment

In an upper eyelid correction to correct drooping eyelids, the eyelids are first marked off. The scar falls precisely in the crease of the eye, making it barely visible later.

An upper eyelid correction is performed under local anaesthetic during a day surgery. Should you be 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 a prick, in the skin of the eyelids.

Besides removing excess skin, it may also be necessary to remove excess muscle. Of course, this does not affect the function of the eye as it involves excess muscle.

To ensure natural and long-lasting results, it is sometimes necessary to also remove some fat. If we were to leave excess fat, it is going to cause sagging of the eyelids again. Also, you will continue to have thick, puffy eyes which becomes more prominent if you remove the excess skin but don't take the fat with it.

After the excess skin, any excess muscle and, if necessary, excess fat is removed, you will be skillfully sutured again. 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 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 painless and done in no time.

An upper eyelid correction is a relatively simple 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 10 to 15 years. With a healthy lifestyle and good skin care, you will get the most out of the treatment.

Aftercare

3.

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 after the procedure and rinse your eyes with a gentle jet. Pat the treatment area dry with a towel, without rubbing. Immediately after the eyelid surgery, start cooling the eyelids to reduce swelling and redness. Cool the wound for 15 minutes every hour with cooling goggles, placing a gauze between your eyes and the cooling goggles. For the first few days, sleep with an extra pillow so that your head is higher. In case of mild pain, a paracetamol is sufficient.

In the first week, do not perform any strenuous physical activity, such as heavy physical work, lifting, bending or intense sports. The stitches will be removed after 7 to 9 days. Smoking is not recommended until then. After 2 to 3 weeks, the wounds will be completely closed and the scabs will disappear. You may again apply make-up and wear contact lenses. You will visit the doctor for check-ups up to 6 weeks after the eyelid surgery. Keep your treated eyelids out of bright sunlight and do not go under a sunbed or to the sauna for the first 3 months.

Risks

Risks

Eyelid surgery is a small and relatively simple 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 haemorrhage, eye inflammation, numbness of the eyelid margin, uneven eyelids, cysts or scarring. When in doubt, always contact the specialists at Skin + Surgery Clinics.

Radiant with an eyelid correction

You deserve to shine every moment of the day. A tired or gloomy appearance can make you feel less comfortable in your own skin. Drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes are often the cause. Besides the aesthetic aspect, drooping eyelids can also limit your vision and cause headaches. Are people asking you more often if you're tired? Or do you want to get rid of that eternal headache? An eyelid correction ensures a fresh and rested look. You'll radiate again. The doctors at SkinSurgery Clinics are specialists in performing this procedure. Our team guides you through the entire process. With a specially developed aftercare protocol, you'll recover quickly after your procedure with minimal swelling and bruising. For us, a natural result is paramount. The outside world won't notice the procedure; they'll only see you shining. We have branches in The Hague, Bergschenhoek, and Rotterdam.

Frequently asked questions

Do you have a question that is not answered? Feel free to contact us Monday to Sunday, between 08:00 and 22:00, at the following number or email.

Post-treatments and check-ups after eyelid surgery

After 7-9 days, the stitches and plasters will be removed during the check-up appointment.
Up to 6 weeks after surgery, you will see your treating physician for check-ups.

What else can you do to combat swelling after eyelid surgery?

To minimise swelling after eyelid surgery, it is important to cool down properly. In addition, you can consider lymphatic drainage to help drain the wound fluid that develops after eyelid surgery during the healing process.

 

In preparation for your eyelid surgery, if you maximally activate the lymphatic system and completely empty the lymphatic sponge, this system can absorb and drain the subcutaneous fluid, which can cause much less swelling.

 

The recommended lymph drainage schedule for an eyelid correction is 3 preparatory drains before and 3 post-treatments after the eyelid correction. The drainage is a low-pressure treatment that allows safe treatment soon after the eyelid correction.

Our advice after treatment

You will experience the least swelling after surgery if you sleep with an extra pillow so that your head is higher than the rest of your body.
During the first week after surgery, try not to bend over, lift heavily, cough and push. Postpone (intensive) sports for a fortnight and do not wear lenses and make-up either. Do not put anything on the eyelids and try not to rub them. After about a week, when all the scabs have come off, you can start using the scar cream we gave you.

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 treatment?

Often you have been considering eyelid surgery for some time, but when you actually take the step is different for everyone. If you look in the mirror and find that you have a gloomy or tired look, even when you are well rested, you may have already considered doing something about it. Eyelid surgery offers a solution here. However, an eyelid correction is not just a solution to a cosmetic problem. Overhanging eyelids can cause various complaints. In some cases, they can limit vision. Overhanging eyelids can also cause headaches, as your muscles have to put more effort into keeping the eyes open. Regardless of the underlying desire for your eyelid surgery, it is important to first find out whether you qualify for it. The best way to do this is to request a no-obligation consultation with our specialists.

What is the difference in price of upper eyelid surgery

Skin + Surgery Clinics is transparent and fair in its pricing. We value quality, which is why we only work with experienced cosmetic doctors. Because everyone is unique, what can be corrected to the eyelids can vary from person to person. Sometimes only excess skin needs to be removed, sometimes excess fat or muscle tissue is also involved. In our clinic, we consider two things important in this: 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.

So how does this 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?

What exactly is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and or lower eyelids. When an eyelid correction is performed from a cosmetic point of view, it can achieve a fresher and rested look. Eyelid correction can also be performed from a medical point of view, when the overhanging eyelids cause symptoms. In both cases, the procedure is the same.
