Eyelid Surgery - what happens?

January 05, 2018

Drooping upper eyelids are not always a matter of age, but can often occur as early as in the third decade of life, producing a tired and sad appearance.  If the forehead muscles also have to be constantly used to open the eyes sufficiently, this can – apart from limiting the field of vision –  also lead to headaches and a prematurely wrinkled forehead.

When correcting the droopy eyelids, a small muscle strip as well as possibly existing fatty tissue is removed in addition to the skin.

The result is a more alert, fresh and younger look.

The operation is performed under local anaesthetic in sterile conditions in an operating theatre on an outpatient basis. The stitches are removed after 3 days and usually  after 10 days hardly any traces of the operation are visible.
