A consultation always takes place before surgery. It includes a full description of the treatment and mentions the potential complications as well as answering individual/personal questions.
This description is necessary in order to be prepared for the personal meeting and to be informed about the most important points.
As we age, the skin of the eyelids become thin, with some brown-coloured spots and crow’s-feet (wrinkles around outer corner of the eye) appear. The skin of upper and lower lids become wrinkled (ptoticus). The upper lid might become so lax so that it may even cause eyesight problems. Furthermore, both under and above the outer and inner corner of the eyes may have swelling.
On the aging face, the skin of both eyelids elongates, and the fat tissue protrudes from the eye socket. Typical symptoms: loosing skin flexibility; muscle atrophy; elongation of both eyelids; and /or protrusion of excess fat situated in the eye socket.
After the operation and recovery process, the patient can live a more complete life.
The purpose of this operation is to remove the wrinkled skin of upper and lower eyelids and also the protrusion of excess fat causing bags.
The type of surgical incision and the method of surgical treatment depend on the current needs of the patient. The operation will be performed with the most modern technical methods, using the smallest incisions. These can be covered by plastic stitches under the skin which assure us of linear, hardly visible scars.
The operation, under local anesthetic, takes 1-2 hours in the case of upper and lower eyelid surgery.
Examination by an eye specialist is needed before the operation and we will gladly help you to organize one.
After the surgery, wearing sunglasses and icing of the operation site is recommended and using eye drops may be necessary.
Further free examinations or personal counseling are possible by appointment.
If you have any surgical site complaint such as swelling, fever, or pain, please contact us immediately.
During operation, eyelids could develop bleeding, inflammation, and a special risk is dry eyes. The lower eyelid might turn out or hardly close.You’ll get specific advice about your risks and possible complications from your personal doctor.
If you'd like to be informed about how to live a complete life with beautiful and healthier eyelids, please get in touch with us and our plastic surgeon Dr. Bernadett Lévay will personally answer all your questions. This consultation doesn't oblige any commitment, so don't hesitate to contact us!
