What is the upper eyelid surgery?

Upper eyelid surgery, also known as eyelid lift or blepharoplasty, is a procedure performed by a plastic surgeon and can work wonders for those suffering from droopy eyelids. One of the causes of droopy, sagging eyelids is aging, as the skin around the eyes loses its elasticity. Another cause is that excess fat and connective tissue under the skin may begin to weaken and protrude. Genetic factors may also play a role in whether you develop this condition. After surgery, you will no longer look tired or be troubled by nagging headaches.

Who is a suitable candidate for the upper eyelid surgery?

To be suitable for the upper eyelid surgery, there are certain factors that will determine whether you qualify for the procedure. These include having sagging or drooping skin, experiencing headaches, or having a loss of vision. If you are deemed suitable for the upper eyelid surgery, we kindly request the following information: your medical history, current state of health, any allergies you have, and any medications you might be taking.

The information you provide can influence whether this procedure is fitting for you. During a free consultation, a cosmetic surgeon will advise you on the procedure, as it may not be recommended for everyone. The consultation includes an examination of your eyelids and an assessment of your personal situation. We look forward to welcoming our valued patients from the United Kingdom and from all around the world.

What is the procedure for the upper eyelid surgery?

Before the procedure, you will be able to eat and drink as you normally would. The surgery is carried out under local anaesthesia. The cosmetic surgeon will first mark the area of the skin that will be removed so it is clearly indicated. Then, the surgeon will remove the excess skin.

Lastly, the capillaries will be cauterized to prevent bleeding, and the incision will be closed. The scar will be practically invisible, as the stitches will be in the crease of the eyelid.

Eyelid surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic, so you’ll be able to eat and drink as you normally would. First, the cosmetic surgeon will mark the area of the skin to be removed so it’s clearly indicated. She will then remove the excess skin. Finally, the capillaries will be cauterised to prevent bleeding and the incision will be closed. The scar is practically invisible because the stitches will be in the crease of the eyelid.

Results of upper eyelid surgery

An upper eyelid lift can leave your eyes looking and feeling firmer, give you a well-rested appearance as well as fewer headaches. It will relieve the pressure on your eyes. Your vision will improve and you will be able to resume your daily tasks again. The stitches can be removed quickly so that the results are also visible quickly.

Although you will be able to see the scars at first, these will fade in the weeks after treatment. Once the scars have faded, the results of an upper eyelid lift are eyelids that look and feel firmer. Your eyes will be more expressive and you will appear years younger.

Follow-up care for eyelid surgery

We advise you to use proper sun protection when going outdoors after treatment. The skin and the scar on the upper eyelid will remain fragile and sensitive to uv-rays. This way you will prevent extra pigment accumulating in the scar or excess redness. After six weeks you are free to enjoy the sun as you wish.

We always use dissolvable stitches to close the wouds, so you won’t have to come back to have them removed. 2 weeks after they are dissolved, a scar cream can be used. We recommend liberal application of the cream every day. In addition, you can buy lid lift goggles specially designed to reduce bruising and swelling.
