Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
The aging process can lead to unpleasant and unattractive changes around the eyes. Hanging eyelids make your eyes small and tired looking. The flagging of the eyelids enhances the development of small wrinkles and puffy bags below your eyes. Drooping lids which are independent from age can be removed with an eyelid lifting. The treatment is carried out ambulatory under local anesthesia. Tiny little incisions are made to take away the spare parts of the skin. These little cuts are placed as unobtrusive as possible. The duration of the treatment depends on the volume that needs to be taken away. To stay in-patient is normally not necessary, but we allow our patients to stay in for one night and administer a constant cooling on the treated area. The past has shown that this concept was really helpful enhancing the healing process. After surgery a swelling of the eyes may occur, which is immediately treated with a cooling compress. As the eyes will be very sensitive to light we recommend wearing dark sunglasses. Stitches will be taken out after approx. 5 days.
