Eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and other tissue which causes the skin to hang over the eyelid or eyebrows. Due to its weight, the excessive skin makes the eyes heavy which is distinctive especially when the eyes are tired and at late hours when it can even close the visual field. The procedure has its aesthetic as well as functional aspects since the loose skin can narrow the visual field. The loose skin can be accompanied by the ptosis or eyelid drooping which means that due to different reasons, the levator muscle is not able to sufficiently lift the eyelid.
For a successful procedure an eyebrow lift is also required along with the loose skin removal. Without it, the forehead skin would be additionally pulled down and the condition could be repeated in a few months due to it.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia through an incision into the skin fold of the upper eyelid. The patient can leave the clinic immediately after the procedure.
