Specialist in medical eyelid surgery

It is often annoying when your eyelids look tired, when you actually feel energetic. Besides aesthetic reasons, eyelid surgery is also often considered from a medical perspective. Common complaints such as headaches, heavy eyelids and/or dry eyes can be remedied by a medical eye lift.

An upper eyelid surgery is a minor cosmetic procedure that has a significant impact: you can once again see the world with an open and clear gaze, and you are rid of your complaints. Imagine how nice it would be if your headache symptoms subsided, your vision widened, your make-up stayed in place, and people noticed how fresh and rested you look! All this is possible with a medical eye lift.

Treatment

Treatment

Eyelid surgery line

With an upper eyelid correction, 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 a virtually painless treatment that takes about 1 hour. You should not drive yourself after the treatment because of the swelling around the eyes and the resulting reduced vision. An upper eyelid correction has long-term results.

Eyelid surgery illustration photo

An upper eyelid correction is 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 a prick, in the skin of the eyelids.

Eyelid correction drawing muscle

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.

Eyelid correction drawing eye

To ensure natural and long-lasting results, it is sometimes necessary to also remove some fat. If we 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 not remove the fat.

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 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.

An upper eyelid correction is a relatively simple and painless procedure that takes about 45 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 eyelid correction for at least 8 to 10 years. With a healthy lifestyle and good skincare, 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 (24 hours) after the procedure and rinse your eyes with a gentle jet. Pat the treatment area dry with a towel, without rubbing. Immediately after the upper 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 gauze 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 7 to 9 days. Smoking is not recommended 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 upper 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.

Risks

Risks

Upper 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 bleeding, eye inflammation, uneven eyelids, cysts or scarring. When in doubt, always contact the specialists at SkinSurgery Clinics.

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.

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.

Our advice after 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 not to bend, lift heavily, cough/press or house. Postpone (intensive) sports for a fortnight and also do not wear lenses and make-up. Do not apply anything to the upper eyelids and try not to rub them. After about a week, when all 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.

You may experience some pain after the anaesthetic wears off. Usually, pain relief with paracetamol is sufficient for this. You may not drive a car on the day of surgery.
Furthermore, we recommend not driving a car while your vision is obstructed.

Do not use contact lenses for 2 weeks. You can use make-up again after removing the stitches, 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 if you qualify for it. The best way to do this is to request a no-obligation consultation with our specialists.

How does medical eye lift treatment 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.

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-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.

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:Ā 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 theĀ 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, orĀ 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.

Performing an eyelid correction requires skilled work. There are different types of eyelid surgery, all with different intended results.

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.
