Eyelid Correction

The correction of hooding and hanging eyebrows which can even impair your vision, has a dramatically rejuvenating effect. The same applies to the treatment of puffy lower eyelids.

Dr. Blaschke puts great emphasis on subtle correction and scar avoidance. Lower lids will whenever possible be treated through the conjunctiva which leaves no external scar. Fat will rather be repositioned than removed. "Hollow eyes" and the "operated look" can be avoided.

The Procedure

The eyelids are operated under local anaesthesia with light sedation if necessary.

In the upper eyelid skin and if required muscle and fat are removed. The wound is closed by a fine intracutaneous suture.

In the lower eyelids the fat excess is treated through the conjunctiva, whereby the fat is repositioned or gently removed. The conjunctiva is normally not sutured. Skin excess is treated through a well hidden subciliary incision. Closure is by very fine sutures. Over night the eyes should be cooled to control swelling.

Dr. Blaschke and his team will see you for regular checks. The sutures are removed within 3 - 5 days. Most bruising and swelling subsides within 2 weeks.

Surgeon’s Remarks

Prolonged lower lid swelling is rare if the incision is through the conjunctiva and does not injure the muscle. A sparing fat resection leads to a more natural result. Of primary importance are rest and cooling of the eyelids. The patient can therefore greatly improve his own result.


Frequently Asked Questions


Will the scars show ?

The incision in the upper eyelid follows a natural fold and is therefore invisible ( Furthermore the surgeon makes the fold a little deeper to make sure ).

The incision in the lower eyelid is in the socalled conjunctiva, which means, one cannot see it from outside. Another incision would be just below the lower eyelashes, again a discrete position.

Does it hurt ?

It is a surprising fact, that eyes can be very easily anaesthetised. The operation is not painful at all.

Can I close my eyes afterwards ?

Sometimes the eyelids will be a little swollen, which might make closing difficult. The surgeon would provide you with eye ointment for protection. The effect only lasts a short while.
