Eyelid Lift

It is a surgery that tightens the eyelids by removing skin sagging and fat from both the lower and upper eyelids, with the aim of reshaping them and tightening them to suit the appearance of the eyes. The procedure takes about two hours if it involves both the upper and lower eyelids.

Stages of eyelid lift

The operation begins with anesthesia: To ensure the patient’s comfort and no pain during the operation, the patient is sedated either locally or generally, and the doctor usually chooses the best anesthesia method for the patient. The doctor then performs the surgical incision: in general, the incision lines are planned so that the scars can be hidden within the natural wrinkle structures of the eye. The incision is then closed: the incision is closed through stitches or a skin adhesive, to be removed after one week.
