The elasticity of the eyelid skin and muscles decreases with age –time affects first and foremost the eyes. Wrinkles and eye bags are more noticeable and the so-called “hidden lid” is a result of sagging skin in the upper eyelids.
Eyelid corrections are amongst the most frequently performed procedures in aesthetic surgery.
The excess skin in the upper eyelid is partially removed. The fine scar is located in the upper crease and is no longer visible after a few weeks. You then have a fresher, more alert facial expression. As for the puffiness caused by the relaxation of the lower lids, the skin and muscle removal is particularly delicate and is performed through a cut along the lower eyelid.
key points in eyelid surgeries
Upper eyelid correction is a relatively simple intervention and an out-patient procedure under local or general anesthesia, it takes about an hour.
Lower eyelid correction is slightly more complex and should always be performed by a professional. The procedure takes about an hour and can also be performed under local or general anesthesia.
Upper and lower lid surgeries can be combined. Consistent cooling and protection of the eye area reduces potential bruising and swelling. The bruising usually disappears completely after a few days. We would be happy to answer your questions during the initial appointment.
