Eyelid surgery - Correction of the upper and lower eyelidsArticle
28. 08. 2018
With age, changes in the form of sagging skin and fat deposits become apparent on eyelids. The face appears tired and with some patients, the skin from the top eyelids actually obstructs their field of vision. Due to this, patients often tilt back their head which then results in increased pain of the neck spine as well as headaches.
How is the procedure carried out?
Surgery of the upper and lower eyelids can be carried at once or separately. It can also follow a facelift or can be part of greater facial change procedures. The procedure takes approximately 40 to 50 minutes and is carried under analgosedation (light general analgesic and sedative) or local anesthesia as required. For the upper eyelids, the incision is done in a place where there is already a natural fold. In the lower eyelids, the incision is done 2-3 mm below the eyelashes. During the procedure, fat deposits and any excess skin are removed along the entire width of the eyelids.
How long does recovery take?
Immediately after the surgery, compression bandages are used and the eyelids are cooled with gel pads. In the first week following the procedure, it is not advised to move the head abruptly, to lean forward or subject yourself to stressful physical activity. Patients should sleep on their backs for a period of at least two months. After seven to ten weeks, the stitches are removed and returning to your work is possible after their removal. The scars will fade in about 4 to 6 weeks. The results will have a long-term effect.
