Eyelid corrective surgery

Eyes: Eyelid correction: Every year thousands of people choose to have cosmetic surgery performed on the eyes: eyelid correction (also called blepharoplasty). Eyelid correction is a relatively small procedure, which has dramatic results. After eyelid corrective surgery you look younger, more alert, less tired, boosting your self-confidence.

Eyelid correction is relatively straightforward but demands considerable skill and experience. At the Wellness Kliniek thousands of successful eyelid corrective procedures have already been performed. Our plastic surgeons possess both the skill and expertise for these demanding operations. 

The advantages of an eye lift are:

  • Short procedure: 45 minutes
  • An eyelift can be performed as outpatient surgery
  • Local anaesthetic or intravenous sedation
  • Long-lasting result
  • Fast recovery following the procedure: 7 to 14 days
  • Small scar: in a natural crease above the eye
  • Safe, with minimum complications
  • Opens and enlarges the eyes
  • Natural result

The doctor explains


  • An upper eyelid correction involves the removal of excess skin and fat. The plastic surgeon can also enhance the shape of your eyes. Because the scar falls precisely in the crease of the eye, later on it is barely noticeable.
  • Before the treatment, photographs are made for your medical file. The surgeon accurately marks on the eyelid how much skin needs to be removed. Then an anaesthetic liquid with adrenaline is injected. Adrenaline helps reduce the bleeding.
  • Once the eye is completely anaesthetised, the surgeon removes a small, half moon-shaped strip of skin from the upper eyelid. Any excess fat, below the skin is also removed.
  • If necessary, the orbicularis oculi muscle is shortened slightly and stitched to the bone membrane in the external corner of the eye. This technique (muscle suspension) ensures that the external corner of the eye is lifted slightly.
  • Lastly, the plastic surgeon stitches the wound with an extremely fine thread and applies a couple of small plasters to the area. In some patients the doctor uses tissue adhesive (Tissucol) to glue the skin together. An eye ice pack cools and soothes the area after your treatment.

Total approach

Plastic surgery for the eyes is often combined with another rejuvenating treatment: facelift, liposculpture under the chin, Botox or filling wrinkles around the corners of the mouth. An upper eyelid correction can be performed in combination with lower eyelid surgery.

Ask your plastic surgeon for some advice about the possibilities without any obligation. 

Anaesthetic & Recovery

During the consultation with the surgeon, you decide the type of anaesthetic you prefer.

An eyelid correction is usually performed under a local anaesthetic. You do not feel any pain during the procedure. Many people do find the injections with the anaesthetic liquid somewhat uncomfortable. If you want, you can also have your eyelid correction performed under intravenous sedation. Read more

Following your treatment, you rest for a while at the Wellness Kliniek. A couple of hours later, you can already return home or to your hotel. You can resume your normal everyday and social activities a week or so later. Read more
