What is an Eyelid Correction? 

Rediscover a revitalized gaze with an Eyelid Correction, also referred to as blepharoplasty, aimed at rejuvenating the upper or lower eyelids. It corrects an undesirable tired or sad expression. An eyelid correction is a versatile procedure that addresses droopy or excess skin, puffy bags, and even vision obstruction due to sagging eyelids. 

I perform both Upper and Lower Eyelid Procedures, and Ptosis Corrections tailored to your desires. My mission is to create impeccably natural outcomes; it's all about enhancing your eyes' appearance and function!
Eyelid Correction surgery
Endoscopic Browlift
Experience this effective yet minimally invasive method that rejuvenates and refreshes your look. The Upper Eyelid Correction diminishes upper eyelid hooding and corrects excess skin and upper eyelid volume. Through a discreet incision in the upper eyelid crease, I remove or reposition precise amounts of fat, muscle and loose skin, all of which contribute to sagging of the eyelids. This upper eyelid procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, has a quick recovery and restores a youthful look.


Temporal Browlift
A Classic Lower Eyelid Correction gracefully revives your youthful eye appearance. It efficiently lifts sagging skin and corrects puffiness of the lower eyelid through an inconspicuous incision just below the lash line and along with the smile creases of the lower eyelid. By meticulously eliminating or repositioning excess fat, muscle and skin I create a smooth lower eyelid giving you a refreshed look. It can be performed under local anesthesia and can be combined with an upper eyelid correction for your convenience.


Mini Browlift
A Transconjunctival Lower Eyelid Correction is particularly suitable for individuals with prominent bags under the eye, but minimal excess skin. Instead of an incision in the skin on the outside of the eyelid, the invisible incision is made on the inside of the lower eyelid, in the conjunctiva. By repositioning or removing the excess fat deposits, I correct the lower eyelid bags and smoothen the lower eyelid, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance.




Direct Browlift
The Ptosis Correction is a gentle, minimally invasive technique repositions the upper eyelid margin that is hanging lower than normal or over your pupil, to a higher position. Through an incision in the upper eyelid crease, the levator muscle that lifts the upper eyelid is meticulously tightened or reattached, which improves your field of vision and brightens your appearance. It can be combined with an upper eyelid correction under local anesthesia, using the same incision.




IDEAL CANDIDATe

Who is an ideal candidate for an Eyelid Correction?

Dropdown icon
Good candidates for an Eyelid Correction are men and women who are showing signs of aging in their face, or who have a tired or sad look, while they are not feeling like that.

Deciding whether you need an eyelid correction is a personal choice that depends on your individual concerns and goals. However, several common signs and conditions may indicate that an Eyelid Correction could be beneficial for you.

1. Sagging eyelids: If your eyelids have started to droop or sag, giving you a perpetually tired, angry or sad appearance, an Eyelid Correction can help restore a more youthful and refreshed look.

2. Puffy eyelids: If you have noticeable ‘full’ eyelids, caused by excess fat deposits, an Eyelid Correction can smoothen your appearance. Especially puffy bags under the eyes can benefit from a Lower Eyelid Procedure.

3. Impaired vision: Severe Eyelid sagging can obstruct your vision, especially the upper field of view. An Upper Eyelid Correction can help open the eye area, improving your visual field. If the Lower Eyelid margin is positioned over your pupil, a ptosis correction is required.
4. Desire for a refreshed and more youthful appearance: If you are dissatisfied with your current appearance and wish to restore a more youthful, energetic, and alert look, an Upper or Lower Eyelid correction, or a combination, can be a transformative procedure.

5. Revision Eyelid Correction: in case of unsatisfactory results or complications following their initial Eyelid Correction, such as asymmetry, scarring issues, or unnatural positioning of the eyebrows.

It’s crucial to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to determine if you are a suitable candidate for an Eyelid Correction. During the consultation, I will assess your facial anatomy, discuss your concerns and expectations, and recommend the most appropriate approach to achieve your desired results.

The ideal patient is in good health and refrains from consuming alcohol and tobacco before and after their procedure.

FAQ

What causes sagging eyelids?

The aging process is the primary cause of sagging eylids. As we age, our skin gradually loses its elasticity, and the underlying tissues weaken. Factors that contribute to sagging eyelids include:

1. Natural aging: Over time, the skin's collagen and elastin levels decrease, leading to loss of firmness and elasticity around the eye.

2. Sun damage: Prolonged exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays accelerates the breakdown of collagen, hastening the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin.

3. Genetics: Some individuals may have a genetic predisposition to early eyelid sagging and puffiness due to inherited skin characteristics and shape of the eye socket.

4. Lifestyle Habits: Smoking, poor nutrition, and significant weight loss can also contribute to premature aging and sagging.

What are the costs of an Eyelid Correction?

I believe in transparency. The cost of an Eyelid Correction varies, and it is essential to understand this important investment in yourself.

• During your consultation I make an analysis of your face, eyes, eyebrow, and forehead, and discuss the possibilities for enhancement of its appearance with you, taking your concerns and expectations into account

• Depending on your wishes and the specific surgical requirements we make a plan.  

• The cost of eyelid correction procedure varies by the extent of the surgery.

• To maintain harmony in your face, it can also be indicated to perform other procedures like a Facelift, or Eyebrow Lift simultaneously.

What are the benefits of an Eyelid Correction?

An Eyelid Correction has the power to get back your youthful look. A well-executed Eyelid Correction by an experienced surgeon can turn back the clock.
Eyelid Corrections create a natural rejuvenation of eye area by opening up the eye and smoothing wrinkles.
Patients report increased self-confidence, improved self-image, and enhanced overall quality of life.

What are the risks of an Eyelid Correction?

Understand the risk of an Eyelid Correction. I believe in informed decisions.

· An Eyelid Correction procedure, like any surgery, has some risks.
· Complications that can occur with Eyelid surgery are infection, pain, temporary numbness of eyelashes, wound healing problems, hematoma (bleeding) and asymmetry.

· The traditional lower eyelid correction can cause ectropion (lower eyelids turn outward away from the eye) and leave behind a pronounced scar. 

· These complications are relatively uncommon, and as a very experienced facial specialist, I deliver the best results with the fewest possible post-surgical problems.

At what age should I get an Eyelid correction?

• Anyone of any age is welcome to undergo an Eyelid correction, especially if they are unhappy with their droopy eyelids, puffiness of the lower eyelids, or an asymmetry caused by a drooping upper eyelid.

• The most Eyelid Correction candidates fall between the ages of 35 and 65.

Is an Eyelid Correction painful?

• Many patients report a bruised feeling the first night following an Eyelid Correction, which can be managed with prescribed medications. 

• Within the next two days this feeling subsides, and patients report they feel more swollen and bruised, but not real pain. It is best not to bend over and do no heavy lifting or strenuous work to minimize swelling.

Most patients can return to light activities within a week after the Eyelid Correction procedure. It is essential to follow the post-operative instructions carefully to ensure a smooth healing process and achieve optimal results.

When can I start working again after an Eyelid Correction?

• The first few days after eyelid surgery you will be able to work from home, but another 5-7 days will be needed to have the most obvious swelling and bruising disappear.

• My advice to patients is to take 10 days off from work.

• After a lower eyelid correction, the swelling tends to last longer than after upper eyelid correction surgery.

When is a Revision Eyelid Correction needed?

There are several scenarios in which a revision Eyelid Correction may be considered:

1. Unsatisfactory results: If a patient is dissatisfied with the outcome of their initial eyelid correction, a revision procedure may be recommended to address the remaining concerns or to refine the results further.

2. Natural aging: Over time, the effects of the initial eyelid correction may be affected by natural aging processes. A revision surgery can help refresh the appearance and maintain the desired outcome.

3. Complications: In some cases, patients may experience complications following their initial eyelid correction, such as asymmetry, scarring issues, or unnatural positioning of the eyelid crease. A revision procedure can correct these issues and improve the overall result.
