Upper Eyelid correction
The upper eyelid is particularly prone to sagging and in so doing contributes to the look of aging. Functionally, the sagging upper eyelid can cause a severe reduction of the visual field (area that you can see) and lead to chronic headaches and irritation of the eyes.
By means of a small surgical procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia, excess skin can be removed and the underlying muscle tightened. In some cases, it might be necessary to reduce the fat accumulation under the upper eyelid that causes additional pressure and a tired expression. The results? Youthful look restoration and the alleviation of chronic headaches. Expect suture removal after five days.
