Consultation with the specialist


Consultation with the specialist

Eyelid surgery is always preceded by a no-obligation consultation. A consultation can take place once the photos you have sent have been assessed by the surgeon, meaning that you are a potentially suitable candidate. Then, in a consultation with one of our specialists, 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 a clear explanation of the treatment, aftercare, risks, costs and the expected natural end result. A second consultation with the surgeon always follows. Photographs are taken before the treatment and later compared with post-treatment photographs.

We fully understand how you feel. An eyelid correction 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 devised aftercare protocol, we ensure that your recovery is successful.

Lower eyelid surgery is performed under sedation, which requires you to be sober and not eat or drink for 6 hours beforehand. The operation is performed as a day treatment.

In lower eyelid surgery for under-eye puffiness, a minimal incision is made just below the lash line or on the inside of the lower eyelid, after which the puffiness is removed.

Lower eyelid surgery involves removing or repositioning excess skin, fat and muscle, depending on the specific needs. The procedure takes about 60 to 90 minutes.

You can go home after the procedure and after a short rest period. You are not allowed to 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 the correction of the eyelids for at least 8 to 10 years. With a healthy lifestyle and good skin care, you will get the most out of the treatment.





Your aftercare is our concern. We work with a specially developed aftercare protocol to ensure a smooth recovery with minimal risk of complications.

You may shower one day (24 hours) after the procedure and you may rinse you eyes carefully. Dab 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 a cold pack and/or frozen peas, placing a tissue between your eyes and the cold pack/frozen peas. For the first few days, sleep with an extra pillow so that your head is higher. For mild pain, a paracetamol is sufficient.

In the first two weeks, do not perform any strenuous physical activity, such as heavy physical work, lifting, bending or intense sports. The stitches will be removed after 9 to 10 days. You are strongly advised not to smoke until then. After 2 to 3 weeks, the wounds are completely closed and the scabs disappear. You may again apply make-up and wear contact lenses. You will have a check-up 6-8 weeks after the lower eyelid correction. Keep your treated eyelids out of bright sunlight and do not go under a sunbed or to the sauna for the first 3 months.





There are risks associated with any procedure. However, the risk of complications in lower eyelid surgery is small if you follow our advice.

It is normal to see redness, swelling and bruising around the eyes after treatment. You may experience mild post-treatment pain that will go away on its own or with a paracetamol.

Lower eyelid surgery requires more patience than upper eyelid surgery. Recovery requires more time and energy, for example, swelling remains longer.

In occasional cases, complications occur, such as post-bleeding, eye inflammation, eyelid edge insensitivity, uneven eyelids, cysts, ectropion or scarring. When in doubt, always contact the specialists at SkinSurgery Clinics.

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.

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.

What exactly is eyelid surgery?

An upper eyelid correction and/or lower eyelid correction involves the removal of excess skin and fat. 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.

Post-treatment and check-up after lower eyelid surgery

After 9-10 days, the stitches and plasters will be removed during the check-up appointment. 6-8 weeks after surgery, you will come for a check-up with one of our specialists.

Our advice after lower eyelid surgery

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 to avoid bending over, heavy lifting, coughing and pushing.

How is wound care after surgery?

We advise you to cool for 15 minutes every hour on the day of surgery using a cool pack or a bag of peas from the freezer. During cooling, place a gauze pad between the eyes and the cooling pack.

After surgery, you may experience bruising and swelling of the lower eyelids, so you may not be able to close your eyes completely after surgery. This will recover once the swelling has gone down. You should not cut the ends of the stitches yourself.

You may shower again the day after surgery. After showering, try to dab the wound dry and not wipe it.

Aftercare after lower eyelid surgery

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

Usually, pain relief with paracetamol is sufficient after surgery.

You are not allowed to drive a car on the day of surgery and as long as your vision is obstructed.

Do not use contact lenses for 2 weeks.

Make-up can be used again after the removal of the sutures, when all scabs have disappeared.

We strongly advise you not to smoke until the sutures are removed. Smoking increases the risk of complications.

We recommend not exposing scars to UV sunlight and/or the sunbed for 3 months after surgery.

So how does lower 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. Photos are also taken for the medical record. With the preliminary examination, we make sure you get a realistic expectation of the intended results.

Who is this correction suitable for?

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. Regardless of the underlying desire for your eyelid correction, 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.
