Upper eyelid correction

Upper eyelid correction, also known as upper blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to remove or reshape excess skin, fat and muscle in the upper eyelid area. This procedure is often performed to improve the appearance of droopy or sagging upper eyelids and to make the face look younger and more alert overall.

Procedure

During the first consultation we take enough time to understand your individual wishes and ideas and present you with different treatment methods.

For local anaesthesia we use a very fine needle with which we inject local anaesthetic under the skin. You will hardly feel the injection. Once the anaesthetic has taken full effect, we carefully remove excess skin and underlying fatty tissue. The wound is closed with a fine thread and the suture is placed in the natural fold of the upper eyelid so that there are hardly any visible scars later.
