The procedure is set to durably correct these imperfections by surgically removing the excess skin and treating muscles and unnecessary fat masses without altering the essential functions of the eyelids.
A discussion followed by an examination of the eyes and eyelids will be made by the surgeon in search of abnormalities that may complicate the surgery, or contraindication.
A preoperative check-up is carried out in accordance with the prescriptions. The anaesthesiologist will be seen in consultation at the latest 48 hours before the procedure.
Although there are general common practices for this operation, each intervention is distinctive and adjusted for best results.
Local or general anaesthesia can be both used with a short ambulatory hospitalisation of a few hours. One bandage only will be used to cover the scars without obstructing the view.
The postoperative recovery is usually not painful, some patient can temporarily experience bruises around the eyes and on the cheeks.
