RECONSTRUCTION OF THE UPPER EYELID

Reconstruction of the upper eyelid is one of the most common procedures within plastic surgery. Eyelid surgery involves restoring the size of the visual field by loosening the heavy eyelid that is weighed down. In addition to a wider visual field, you look younger and more alert.

During the operation, baggy skin is removed, along with fat, when necessary. In some cases, the surgery can also be performed using a laser.

RECONSTRUCTION OF THE LOWER EYELID

Reconstruction of the lower eyelid is performed to correct a tired appearance and the sagging area under the eye by removed baggy skin and muscle tissue. When necessary, the fat in the bags under the eyes are smoothed out.

In some cases, it is sufficient to treat the area with the laser and avoid surgery.

 

DEFORMITIES OF THE EYELID AND FUNCTIONAL DISORDERS

When we talk about eyelid deform ities, it is usually a question of the corner of the eyelid bending inwards or outwards or a hanging eyelid.

APPOINTMENT WITH THE PLASTIC SURGEON PRIOR TO THE PROCEDURE

At the clinic the need for surgery and the surgical technique that would be most suitable are mapped out. At the same time, the surgeon who will be operating determines whether this is a question of treating a disorder or an aesthetic procedure.
 

AFTER THE PROCEDURE

You may return home the same day as the procedure. The scar usually heals quickly.

The stitches are removed a maximum of one week after the operation.

The bruising and swelling that arise in conjunction with the surgery normally disappear within 1–2 weeks and you can use make-up 8–10 days after the operation. You can normally return to work about one or two weeks after the operation. We recommend that you protect yourself from the sun for 3–6 months following the operation.
