Drooping eyelids and eyebrows, puffiness under the eyes and wrinkles around the eye area can significantly age the face and lead to a tired appearance. Moreover, drooping of the upper eyelids may lead to reduced vision which can cause serious headaches. Blepharoplasty, better known as eyelid correction, can be a fitting solution to reduce the effects of age on the eye area. In the following menu you can find more information on eyelid correction. In case you would like our professional advice or if you would like to make an appointment, please contact us.

Consultation

During a first non-committal consultation, Dr. Fantozzi will discuss all the different aspects of blepharoplasty. He will discuss your aesthetic wishes and subsequently advise you which method of treatment will let you meet those wishes in the best way possible. Furthermore you will be informed on the results you may expect, possible downtime and temporary limitations after the surgery. You can rest assured that you will always receive honest and professional advice during this consultation.

Procedure

During upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Fantozzi removes the excess subcutaneous fat and loose skin from the eyelid area that causes the eyelid to droop. The incision is made in the eye crease, in a way that minimizes the visibility of scar tissue. Over time this will smooth out even further, leaving only a very thin line right in the crease which is not even visible when the eyes are open. Lower eyelid surgery is very effective in reducing puffiness or ’bags’ under the eyes. During the surgery, Dr. Fantozzi will remove excess fatty deposits and skin underneath the eye. There will be no visible scar tissue here, because the incision is made right under the lash line. Depending on your preferences, the eyelid correction can be performed on both eyelids or just the upper or lower eyelid. The result is a more youthful, invigorated appearance. In order to further enhance results, eyelid correction is commonly performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures such as facelifting and forehead lifting. You can read more about those procedures on this page. Blepharoplasty is performed under local anesthesia and sedation, and is normally completed in 15 minutes for each eyelid.

Aftercare

During a non-committal consultation, Dr. Fantozzi can advise you which method suits your aesthetic wishes and he will inform you on the expected down-time and temporary limitations after the eye lid correction. To secure the quality and results of the surgery, we will schedule an appointment for a check-up following the procedure. In order to further enhance the results, Clinic Fantozzi will also design a personal after-treatment course for each unique individual if desired.
