How long do the results of an upper eyelid correction last?
The results of an upper eyelid correction are visible for a long time. As a result of aging and sagging skin, it may be necessary to repeat the procedure after ten to fifteen years, if so desired.
Will I feel any pain after the operation?
In our experience, patients hardly ever experience any pain after the procedure. In case you do, paracetamol is typically sufficient to supress the pain. Should the pain endure, we advise you to contact our assistant.
How long does the scar remain visible?
In the first days after the procedure, there’s often some swelling and sometimes a bruise. The scar is a thin, slightly coloured line, often with a few scabs. After a few months, the scar will naturally return to the arch of your eye where it will become thinner and less visible.
How long is the recovery process after an upper eyelid correction?
After an upper eyelid correction, we advise you to rest, not to bend over or to do heavy physical labour. After the procedure, you’ll receive extensive advice as well as a brochure for home reading.
How long after the procedure can I go home?
You don’t have to be admitted for an eyelid correction, which means you can go home right after the procedure. We do advise you to bring someone to take you home.
Are there any risks associated with eyelid corrections?
The chance of complications with an upper eyelid correction is very small. Some swelling and bruising may occur, but they won’t affect the final result. During your intake session, the doctor informs you about the possible risks and complications, so you can make a well-informed decision. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact CLAUSHOLTZ aesthetics seven days a week, 24 hours a day via telephone number 06 42 36 36 82.
Can I smoke before and after the procedure?
For the best results, we advise you not to smoke before or after the procedure. At the very least, refrain from smoking while the stitches are still in. But even after the stitches have been removed, the healing process benefits from not smoking.
Can I keep using blood thinners before the procedure?
We recommend that you bring a list of your current medication. During the intake session, the doctor will discuss the use of blood thinners with you. If necessary, our doctor will contact your doctor about your medication.
Is an upper eyelid correction performed under general anaesthesia?
An eyelid correction is performed under local anaesthesia. The procedure itself is painless.
