Upper eyelid surgery
An upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a small procedure intended to improve the appearance of the eyes. Due to excess skin and sagging of the skin of the eyelids, the eyes may look tired or sleepy.
Reasons to opt for an upper eyelid correction can be medical (for example heavy or fatigue complaints of the eyes, headache, irritation of the eyes) or cosmetic.
The treatment is done under local anesthesia. The procedure consists of removing the excess skin and any excess adipose tissue from the upper eyelids.
The recovery takes about a week and the final result can be seen after about six weeks. The eyes will look more rested, fresher, and younger while retaining a natural appearance.
