Why You Might Consider Eyelid Surgery

Because eyelid skin is the thinnest skin on the face it is the first to show the signs of aging. Drooping upper lids and puffy bags below the eyes can be corrected by the removal of fat, along with excess skin and muscle, from the upper and lower eyelids.

Eyelid surgery is one of the simplest and most popular procedures with the effect of producing a fresher, more alert appearance to a very prominent area of the face.

Eyelid Surgery for Top Eyelids

This treatment is called Blepharoplastie and may or may not include eyebrow lifting. This operation usually is completed under local anaesthesia with or without sedation and takes approximately 1 hour. First of all, the incisions to be made are drawn with a marker by the plastic surgeon while you are standing. Then, the upper eyelid will be numbed and the skin will be removed with a CO2 laser. This method causes little blood loss and very little bruising afterwards. A small sack of fat will also be removed from the inner eyelid during eyelid surgery.

You will also see that eyebrows often begin to sag at the same time. The eyebrow is then attached to your forehead in its anatomically correct position through the same incision. The wounds are closed using skin glue, which disappears automatically approximately one week after surgery.

Eyelid surgery after care :
Ice will be applied to your eyelids for 2-3 days to help prevent post-operative swelling.

Eyelid Surgery for Under Eyelids

This treatment is called Lower Blepharoplastie and takes place under local anaesthesia with or without sedation. First of all, the incision line right under the eyelashes is marked and the lower eyelid is numbed. After making as short an incision as possible, excess fat tissue and skin folds are removed. The wounds are closed with skin glue.

Eyelid surgery after care :
Ice is applied to the lower eyelids immediately after surgery to help prevent post-operative swelling. You can continue applying ice for the first three days at home after eyelid surgery.  The skin glue will dissolve automatically after approximately 10 days.
