Upper eyelid plastic surgery

Plastic surgery

Blepharoplasty is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the face. It offers health benefits as well as aesthetic improvement, as excess skin in the upper eyelids can obstruct vision. This leads to increased tear production, burning, and redness in the eyes.

The skin of the upper eyelids is very delicate and sensitive. Over time, it loses its firmness and becomes loose. Several factors influence this process, from genetics to skin type or predisposition to certain diseases.

It is important to determine whether the problem is in the eyelids or sagging eyebrows because there is a different solution for the eyebrows.

What is blepharoplasty

Plastic surgery on the eyelids is performed to remove excess skin and fatty deposits, which make clients appear older and more tired.

Keep in mind that the aging process is complex and affects the entire face. That is why surgery of the upper eyelid is often combined with surgery of the lower eyelids and other aesthetic procedures such as facelift (tightening the skin of the face). In that case, the procedure must be performed under general anesthesia.

Who is a suitable candidate for this procedure

Upper eyelid plastic surgery is suitable for both women and men. It is most often performed on clients older than 40 years, with a certain predisposition it is possible to perform it even earlier. The main prerequisite for the procedure is the good health of the client.

The first step is to consult with a plastic surgeon. Based on the examination, the doctor will offer you the most suitable type of procedure, while explaining in detail the entire procedure of the procedure, including the selected anesthesia.

The operation is usually performed under local anesthesia. However, it can be performed under general anesthesia after agreement with the doctor.

What can you gain from this procedure

  • The procedure is suitable for both men and women
  • Minimally invasive surgery performed under local anesthesia
  • You can go home immediately afterward
  • Visible rejuvenation
  • Get rid of the tired eyes sensation
  • Proper eyelid function


Před / Po

Before the procedure

The plastic surgeon will recommend not only a suitable technique, but also possible preoperative skin treatment or subcutaneous therapy in the eye and face.

If eyelid surgery is to be performed under brief general anesthesia, preoperative examination is necessary at least one week before surgery.

As part of the preparation for surgery, it is possible to start taking food supplements after consultation with our nutritionist, which will contribute to successful healing.

Before the operation, it is necessary to discuss the omission of commonly used drugs with the attending physician.

The procedure

After a careful drawing, the plastic surgeon makes an incision so that it is hidden in the skin fold of the eyelid and the scar remains perfectly hidden. It then removes excess skin and, in some cases, reduces excess orbicular muscle. The wound is closed with a fine suture and covered with a special patch. Upper eyelid surgery takes approximately 45 minutes.

After the procedure

If the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, you can go to home care immediately after it. Because you must not drive a car immediately after the operation, it is advisable to have an escort with you. The eyes may be sensitive to light for some time, so we recommend wearing sunglasses.

If the operation is performed under general anesthesia, hospitalization in our clinic is necessary.

In the period after the procedure, it is advisable to observe a rest regime and apply cool compresses, which will prevent the formation of major swelling and bruising. The most pronounced swellings disappear within a few days. They are usually completely absorbed within 2 weeks. One week after the operation, we recommend sleeping with your head in a raised position and reducing physical activity.

You will have the stitches removed on the seventh day after the operation.

On the thirteenth day after the operation, you can start several times a day with a gentle scar massage. You can use a greasy perfume-free cream or olive oil. You should not be exposed to sunlight for at least 2 to 3 months, even then the eyelids should be protected with a cream with a high SPF factor.

For long-term maintenance of the result of eyelid surgery, we recommend care with Dermaceutic Laboratoires and therapy using JEISYS devices or the procedure from RENEVE MONACO.

Important information

Returning to everyday activities
You can resume light office work on the third day after the procedure. Swelling and bruising will continue for about one to two weeks. The final results of the upper eyelid blepharoplasty will be visible after four to eight weeks when the swelling fully subsides. By this time, the scar should be faint and barely visible.

  • I’ve always had wrinkles on my neck, and the skin on my chin started to loosen, so I decided to solve my problem. At ABClinic, doctor Krajcová offered a collagen treatment using the Nithya agent. The result is amazing, and improvement has been visible even after the first session. I have had three sessions, my neck and chin are firmer, and the neck is without wrinkles after the third and final session. Julie V.

  • I would like to thank Alice at ABClinic and Dr. Satankova for all their help. I recently attended the ABClinic in Prague for a facelift and lower eyelid surgery. Dr. Satankova is extremely skilled and I have a more youthful but natural result. The clinic is very professionally run and the recovery rooms are beautiful. Traveling from abroad can be daunting but Alice helped me every step of the way, arranging taxi transfers and a hotel. I felt confident and cared for throughout my surgery. I am very happy with the results. Georgina M.
