Eyelid surgery in Barcelona

As our bodies change as we age, our facial skin is no exception. Our skin gradually loses its elasticity and excess fat can gather on the upper and lower eyelids, which can cause the well known sagging eyes and make you look older. In some cases, bulging, droopy eyelids can even interfere with your vision.

Most of these symptoms are associated with age but in some cases, they can also be inherited, which means you may develop them already at a younger age.

Luckily, anyone who suffers from these symptoms can be a good candidate for a blepharoplasty. Your surgeon will be able to determine and recommend if this procedure is the right one for you. Often a combination of treatments can be recommended to achieve the best results.

When to choose eyelid surgery?

A lot is possible with corrections to the eyes. So if you would like to change the appearance of your eyes yourself, then an eyelid correction could be a good choice for you. What types of eyelid surgery are there? Below we tell you more about them, so you can think about whether one of these corrections suits you. Of course, you will get sound and honest advice during a no-obligation consultation at the Wellness Kliniek.

Upper eyelid correction (upper eyelids)

An upper eyelid correction means that we remove excess skin, muscle and fat, giving you a more youthful appearance. It not only improves your appearance, but can also widen your field of vision. Recovery is smooth, with minimal scarring. The scar is right in the crease of your eye, so it is barely visible afterwards. Upper eyelid surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedures of its kind.

Asian upper eyelid surgery (upper eyelids)

Women and men of Asian descent can opt for double eyelid surgery. Here, the plastic surgeon will mainly focus on creating or refining your upper eyelid crease. The lower eyelids are usually not treated, as the skin under the eyes is usually, naturally, nice and tight.

Lower eyelid surgery (lower eyelids) - skin removal

Regain your youthful appearance with lower eyelid surgery. This procedure removes wrinkles and excess skin under your eyes, giving you a smoother, more radiant look. The treatment is quick, with minimal downtime. The treatment can be done under local anaesthetic or, if you wish, also under general anaesthetic.

Lower eyelid correction with puffiness removal

Correction of lower eyelids and puffiness effectively addresses the bags under your eyes, removes excess fat and skin, and tightens the area under your eyes for a fresher, more alert look. Minimum recovery time, maximum impact.

Young people can also suffer from bags under the eyes. Skin removal is then normally not necessary. The surgeon can correct the bags under your eyes through the inside of your lower eyelid. The procedure is known as eyelid correction without surgery or under-eye puffiness removal without a scar.

Lower eyelid surgery with lipofilling

Lipofilling under the eyes minimises dark circles. Lipofilling or adding fat can help fill the hollows that cause dark circles and bags under the eyes, giving you a fresher and more rested appearance.

Lower and upper eyelid correction (combination)

Often, correction of both the lower and upper eyelid is desirable. A combination lower and upper eyelid correction is suitable for people who want to address signs of ageing around both the upper and lower eyelids. This may include excess skin, fatty deposits or sagging muscles.

During the consultation with the doctor at Wellness Kliniek, you will discuss all your concerns, wishes and expectations. Based on this, and through experience and insight, the doctor will be able to inform and recommend what is aesthetically right for you.

Upper and lower eyelid correction and puffiness removal

The combination of upper and lower eyelid correction can also be complemented by the removal of bags under the eyes, with the surgeon removing excess fat and skin through a small incision along the eyelashes or through the inside of the lower eyelid. Puffiness removal restores the eye contour and visibly reduces swelling under the eye. This restores a fresh look, smoothing dark circles under the eyes and giving you a more energetic appearance.

Eyelid surgery for men and women: am I a good candidate?

Both men and women find relief in eyelid surgery. Can anyone undergo eyelid surgery? People who suffer from sagging eyelids, excess skin around the eyes, under-eye bags, or who want a more rejuvenated appearance may be good candidates. This is always assessed personally.

While there is no ideal age, most people undergo this procedure from the age of 45 or when signs of ageing become more obvious. A thorough evaluation by a qualified surgeon is needed to determine if you are a suitable candidate. We therefore recommend that you book a no-obligation consultation for personalised advice.

Frequently asked questions about eyelid surgery

For whom is eyelid surgery suitable?

Our bodies change over the years, and so does the skin in our face. Our skin loses elasticity and sometimes fat accumulates on the upper and lower eyelid. This then causes droopy eyes. It makes you look older and may even disturb your vision.

Sometimes such discomforts are congenital and you have to deal with them at a younger age. But in any case, anyone affected by this can have eyelid surgery. Your surgeon will check with you whether this is the best option for you. Sometimes a combination of treatments is needed to get the best results.

How does eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) happen?

Before treatment, we take photos for your records. The surgeon indicates on your eyelids exactly where he will remove skin or fat. He then injects an anaesthetic with adrenaline (to stop bleeding).

Once the eye is numbed, a surgeon makes small incisions along the natural folds of the eyelids. Excess skin and fat tissue is removed, and if necessary, the muscles under the eyes are adjusted.

Finally, the surgeon sutures the wound with an extremely fine thread and places some plasters on the area. In some cases, the surgeon uses Tissucol, adhesive material to glue the skin together. An icepack cools and soothes after the procedure.

Eyelid correction: under local or general anaesthesia?

Usually, eyelid surgery is done under local anaesthesia (with sedation), but general anaesthesia is also possible for those who want it. With local anaesthesia, you are awake, just like at the dentist. Sedation medication helps you feel more relaxed. Would you rather not experience anything of the procedure? Then opt for sleep anaesthesia/narcosis.

Does eyelid surgery hurt?

You won't feel any pain during the procedure. The surgeon will properly sedate the area. Sedation medication will help you feel more relaxed. The pricks for anaesthesia are not so pleasant, as the area around your eyes is very sensitive. Fortunately, the procedure itself is painless! There may be a brief burning sensation after the operation.

How long does an eyelid correction take?

An upper eyelid correction takes half an hour on average, with an additional half hour of preparation time. A lower eyelid correction, for example with lipofilling or removal of puffiness, takes a little longer, depending on exactly what is done. You will receive an indication of the duration in advance.

How long does eyelid surgery recovery take and when will I be 'presentable' again?

For the first three days after surgery, your eyelids will be somewhat swollen with bruising. This can also briefly cause uneven eyes after eyelid surgery, but this quickly recedes. The blue discolouration gets a little worse at first, then subsides and usually disappears after a week. Most people therefore return to work only after a week. The full recovery time is about six weeks to three months.

TIP: recovery of the eyelid correction is optimal if all aftercare guidelines are strictly followed. You will be given a sheet with instructions to take home.

Can you drive after the eyelid correction?

You can go home immediately after the eyelid correction. However, you should not drive yourself and should not be left alone for the first 24 hours, so it is important that you take someone with you. Is this not part of your option? Then it is also possible to book a room in a hotel near the clinic.

Do I still look like myself after eyelid surgery?

Yes, after eyelid treatment you still look like yourself, only more rested with a fresher look.

After how many years should I repeat eyelid surgery?

Many people are happy with a one-off procedure. Others want to keep up with the signs of ageing and have a touch-up eyelid surgery every 15 years. You decide what is desirable for you.

What is the best age to have an eyelid correction done?

The average age for an eyelid correction at Wellness Kliniek is 53, but varies between 25 and 75. A double upper eyelid correction for people of Asian descent can be done from the age of 18, if the skin condition allows. The doctor will indicate, at the consultation, whether you are a suitable candidate.

What is a double eyelid correction?

Asian eyelid surgery, also known as double eyelid surgery, focuses mainly on correction of the upper eyelid. This treatment is designed to create or accentuate a skin fold in the upper eyelid, which is a feature that is often naturally lacking in people of Asian descent. Adding the skin crease visually enlarges the eyes and can change the overall facial expression. It is a sought-after procedure among this target group.

The lower eyelids are usually not addressed in standard Asian eyelid surgery, as the skin under the eyes is naturally beautifully tight.

It is important to clarify what your aesthetic goal is during the consultation with the surgeon, so that an appropriate surgical technique can be drawn up that takes into account all aspects of your facial features and your wishes.

What are the eyelid surgery advantages and disadvantages?

Eyelid lifting is a good idea from an aesthetic point of view if you want to enrich your look. But that is not the only benefit of eyelid surgery. In fact, it normally also makes your eyes less tired. An oppressive feeling decreases. Perhaps you always had the feeling of having to open your eyes properly and that is a thing of the past after eyelid lifting. Even headaches may disappear as a result.

Besides the advantages of eyelid surgery, there are of course also disadvantages, which we at Wellness Kliniek like to be transparent about. The most annoying thing about the eyelid correction is that the result is only definitively visible after six weeks to three months. Moreover, the scar, too, only really starts to fade after about three months.

So, although eyelid surgery is a relatively simple procedure with minimal risk of complications, you have to expect a rather long recovery time and proper aftercare (at home) after the procedure. If this is not a problem for you then eyelid surgery can improve your quality of life, both emotionally and physically.

Eyelid surgery after 2 weeks, what can I expect?

Two weeks after eyelid surgery, you can expect the following:

  • Reduced swelling and bruising: Most swelling and bruising should be significantly reduced, although they may not be completely gone yet. This is a normal part of the healing process.
  • Scarring: The incisions are beginning to heal, but scars are still visible and red. They will fade and become less noticeable with time.
  • Visible result: Although the final result of the surgery will still be a few weeks away, you can already see a clear difference.

Keep following any aftercare instructions, such as using sunscreen. You should now have less or no need for pain relief. Every healing process is personal and can vary depending on individual circumstances, such as your age, your skin type and the exact nature of the surgery.

If you have any questions or doubts, contact us. Our doctors will assist you to full recovery after the procedure. All aftercare consultations are free of charge.

Fluid retention after eyelid surgery, is it normal?

Yes, fluid retention (fluid retention) after eyelid surgery is normal and part of the healing process. During the first few days after surgery, the eyelids and surrounding area will swell and retain fluid. This is a natural reaction of the body to the surgery. The swelling and fluid may contribute to a temporary feeling of tightness or stiffness in the treated area.

After eyelid surgery fluid retention, how long does it last?

Fluid under the skin is the cause of swelling. Swelling usually peaks within the first three to four days after surgery and then gradually starts to decrease. Complete healing and disappearance of all swelling may take several weeks (up to three months).

Following your surgeon's aftercare advice can help reduce swelling and fluid retention. This may include applying cold compresses, taking prescribed medication and avoiding certain activities. Follow the advice given to you at Wellness Kliniek.

Sleeping on your side after eyelid surgery: what is the right sleeping position?

Keeping your head in a slightly elevated position while sleeping can help reduce swelling. The recommended sleeping position after eyelid surgery is on your back. It is better not to sleep on your side, as this can increase swelling and interfere with the healing process. You can keep your head elevated with some extra pillows or an adjustable bed.

Watching TV after eyelid surgery, is it allowed?

After an eyelid correction, you can just watch (moderate) TV. It's best to limit the time of watching TV to avoid dry eyes. Use eye drops if you were given them and always follow the specific recommendations of your treating doctor.

Mascara after eyelid surgery, is it allowed?

Wait to apply mascara and make-up after eyelid surgery until your skin and scars are fully healed, usually from 10 to 14 days after surgery or after the removal of any stitches. Use gentle, hypoallergenic products and always follow your doctor's advice for a safe recovery.

What does eyelid surgery cost and will it be reimbursed?

Eyelid aesthetic surgery is not reimbursed. On this page, you will find the price list for eye treatments at Wellness Kliniek. Optionally, you can set up a piggy bank at Wellness Kliniek, so that you can put money aside each month for the treatment.
