Cosmetic surgery for the eyes

Plastic cosmetic surgery for the eyes: Eyelid correction, also called blepharyplasty, corrects the skin and the contour of your eyes. Sagging eyelid tissue makes you look older and tired. Furthermore sagging upper eyelids can impede your field of vision and result in complaints such as tiredness and headaches. Applying make-up is also more difficult.

By removing the excess skin, removing or transposing the excess fatty tissue of the lower eyelid and correcting the muscles of the eye contour you will look alert and youthful once more.

At the consultation the plastic surgeon examines the cause of the problem. Has the skin on your eyelids slackened or become thinner? Have the pockets of fat under your eyes sagged? Are dropping eyebrows or dark circles the cause of your tired appearance?

A thorough assessment by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon is the first step in achieving a great result!

Eyelid correction: frequently asked questions

  • Why is an eyelid correction necessary?
    Due to our genetic disposition and the natural ageing process we lose subcutaneous elastic connective tissue. This means that the skin around the eyes loses its firmness and elasticity. The upper eyelids start to droop. The lower eyelids become slack and wrinkly. The pocket of fat under the eyes sags and starts to bulge. Dark circles become visible. 
  • Does the scar remain visible after an eyelid correction?
    The scar is barely visible since it is positioned in the fold of the eyelid. The scar fades over time so that a minimal line is all that remains.
  • Is the procedure painful?
    An eyelid correction is performed under a local anaesthetic and is practically painless. If you prefer, you can also choose intravenous sedation. The first few days following the procedure your eyelids will be sensitive, bruised and swollen.  This sometimes results in a little discomfort but can be relieved with paracetamol.
