Drooping eyelid correction

APPOINTMENTS Examination for cosmetic eye surgery

If you are bothered by loose skin or swelling along the eyelids simply because it makes you look tired, you have a good enough reason to undergo eyelid correction. If your field of vision is becoming reduced as a result of this problem, then you shouldn't even think twice about this decision.

No more tired appearance

As we age, skin becomes thinner and looser, which causes a gradual drooping of the eyelids. Over time, this can also affect eyesight, since it causes a reduction in the field of vision. Yet, most people are bothered by drooping eyelids simply because it makes them look tired. But you don't have to accept this condition. Visit our clinic and we will resolve your problem with a minimally invasive procedure.

Removing Excess Skin

The procedure to correct drooping eyelids is simple and completely safe. The surgery is performed by our ophthalmologist who is specialized in cosmetic eye surgery. With a minimally invasive but highly effective surgery, the ophthalmologist removes excess skin and wrinkles from the eyelids, "opening up your eyes". In just a few days, your face will look considerably younger again.

COURSE OF SURGICAL PROCEDURE

 
  • Pre-operative examination
    Duration: 15 minutes

    At the examination, we evaluate the droop of the eyelids and discuss your wishes and expectations. On the basis of the discussion, we recommend a suitable form of surgery and present the results that you can expect from treatment. The patient should not strive to achieve an ideal look or an altered facial appearance.

     

     
  • Surgical treatment
    Duration: 1 hour

    Surgery on the eyelids is performed at the clinic under local anaesthesia and takes about one hour. The necessary incision is made in the natural fold of the eyelid, so that the scar is virtually unnoticeable. Recovery takes about one week.

     

     

     
  • Post-surgery examination
    Duration: 15 minutes

    As much rest as possible is recommended in the first days after surgery because rest allows the swelling of the eyelid to disappear more quickly. The healing of the skin of the eyelid is usually very fast. A post-operative examination is performed one week after the surgery, when the adequacy of the correction can already be evaluated.

     

     

     

     

FAQ

Do drooping eyelids occur only in older people?

The skin of the upper eyelids can get loose and change facial appearance in a way that makes a person look tired or sad also in relatively young people. But these changes certainly occur more frequently in people who are older because the flexibility and elasticity of the skin reduces as we age.

How do I know if I need eyelid correction?

We recommend a correction of drooping eyelids when the skin of the upper eyelid extends to the edge of the eyelid or even over the edge. Aside from creating a tired appearance, this excess skin can also reduce the field of vision and thereby worsen visual acuity.

Is the procedure painful?

The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. It is a painless and routine surgery that lasts about one hour.

Is a scar visible after surgery?

Excess skin is removed using a precise surgical incision that is made in the natural fold of the eyelid, so that the scar can’t be seen after it heals.
