Eyelid correction

Upper/lower eyelid correction


Eyelid skin is exceptionally thin, delicate and dry. This is the first one to age. The operative intervention of upper/lower eyelids is recommended to those patients who have redundant tissue and pads around the upper and/or lower eyelids. These puffy depots make your face look tired and angry.

Performed independently or in combination with an operation for eyebrow lifting (upper face lifting), the procedure reduces the signs of age and gives you back the youthful look and fresh complexion. There are plenty of techniques for a maximum result depending on the medical indications and specific characteristics of the individual.

The Procedure


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emil Georgiev removes a small quantity of fat, together with the loose skin, sometimes also part of the muscle, in order to ‘tailor’ the eyes and rejuvenate the overall expression of the face. The incisions are located in the upper eyelid flap or immediately under the eye and in several months they become almost invisible.

Duration: 30-60 minutes
Anesthesia: Depending on the patient preferences operation is performed under local or general anesthesia. The patient may go home or remain under medical supervision in the clinic.

Recovery period:

Pain: No pain; slight discomfort for 2-3 days
Bruising: 3-5 days
Swelling: 3-6 weeks; numbness of surrounding tissues for 6 and more weeks
Bandages & stitches: for 5- 6 days
Daily activities and work: Return to work without physical activity – in 7 days, physical work – in 10-14 days
Exercise& Fitness: in 4-8 weeks
Final result: approximately 3-6 months
