Drooping/overhanging eyelids and sagging under-eyes can make you look and feel tired. An Overhanging eyelid can also cause impairments in sight. An eyelid correction can manage these problems and give you a fresh new look.
What exactly is an eyelid correction?
An eyelid correction removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. When an eyelid correction is performed for cosmetic reasons, you can achieve a fresh new look. An eyelid correction may also be done for medical reasons if the upper eyelid is drooping and causing issues with sight and/or other complaints. Regardless of the reason, both procedures are performed in the exact same way.
Who is an eyelid correction suitable for?
Maybe you’ve been considering an eyelid, but don’t know where to start. Perhaps you’ve looked in the mirror and seen a tired, worn face. Even if you’re well rested, you may benefit from an eyelid correction. An eyelid correction is not just suitable for cosmetic reasons. There may be medical issues that can be managed with the help of an eyelid correction. A drooping eyelid can limit your sight or cause headaches due to muscles straining to keep the eye open. Regardless of the underlying reason for your eyelid correction, it is important to first determine if you are suitable for the procedure. The best way to do this is by requesting a free consultation with our surgeon Dr.Thanya Tha-In.
How does an eyelid correction work?
There are different types of eyelid corrections, all of which have a different intended outcome. To determine whether you are suitable for the surgery and to determine which technique best suits your desired outcome, a preliminary examination is required. During the preliminary exam you have the ability to ask any questions you may have. Photographs are taken and added to your medical file. With this exam we aim to give you a realistic expectation about the process and results.
Treatments with Eyelid correction
Upper eyelid correction
In the case of an upper eyelid correction, part of the skin is removed above the upper eyelids. Skin on the upper eyelid may droop to such an extent that the excess skin falls over the eyelid and eyelashes. This can cause limited vision and, because it takes more effort to keep the eyes open, headaches. Removing part of this excess skin can resolve this problem.
During the treatment, the eyes are marked with a pen, so that the surgeon knows exactly what excess skin to remove. The skin around the eyes is anesthetized. You may experience an unpleasant/uncomfortable sensation when the anaesthetic is injected, but it is not painful. Once the anaesthetic takes effect, your eyelid will be numb and you will not feel anything. An incision is made in a specific place so as not to cause scarring and the excess skin is removed. The incision is then sutured and the stitches can be removed one week after surgery.

Lower eyelid correction
A sagging lower eyelid is caused by excess skin and/or excess fat. Prior to treatment, our doctor will determine exactly how much skin or fat to remove. The area is marked with a pen and disinfected. The excess skin or fat is then removed through a small incision on the inside of the eyelid. This technique produces no visible scars. If it is not possible to make an incision inside the lower eyelid, a small incision is made on the lash line to minimize any scarring. The wound is then sutured. Stitches can be removed a week after surgery. In some cases, it may be possible to use a different technique where subcutaneous fat layers are repositioned between the eye and the nose.
