How does eyelid surgery work

Are you suitable?

After careful examination, we will first determine if you qualify for eyelid surgery. If you are suitable, a surgery date will be scheduled with you. Surgery days are usually thursday and saturday. This can be deviated from by mutual agreement.

You will be taken care of

The day of the procedure, you will be met by the physician’s assistant, who will accompany you to the treatment room.

Operation area sign off

The surgical area is marked off. This is the most important step of the procedure because the better we can delineate the better the result.

The intervention

The procedure takes place under local anesthesia and takes about 30 minutes. During the procedure, you will be awake and the doctor will tell you (if you wish) about the progress of the procedure.

Cooling mask

After the procedure, you can relax and we will give you a cooling mask. This cooling will ensure that you recover as quickly as possible after the procedure. It is important to refrigerate well for the first 3 days. For this, you will receive instruction from the physician’s assistant. Proper and regular cooling is essential for proper recovery.

Sutures out

One week after the procedure, you will return for removal of the sutures. A clear difference can already be seen, but the final result is visible after 6 to 8 weeks.
