For the upper eyelids the incision is made in the natural crease line that occurs above the eyelashes. The incisions may extend into the crows feet or laughter lines at the outer corners of your eyes. We remove fat, sagging muscle and skin. The surgeon closes the incisions with very fine sutures.
For the lower eyelids, the incision starts underneath the eyelashes and extends out approximately one centimetre outwards into the crows feet area. The surgeon lifts the skin upwards and outwards, gently tensioning the area. He removes any overlapping skin after. Finally, he closes the incisions with very fine sutures.
Surgery can be carried out either as a day surgery or an overnight stay in hospital.
