hi I am interested in eye correction , I have an issue with the skin above the eye and below the eyebrow being very saggy and I also have fat bags below the eye, I have seen a surgeon in England and he suggested that I needed some skin removing from above the eye as well ,in other words three sections in his opinion on each eye. How long are the eyes covered after surgery and can you give me a price range, thanks r.sobczyk I would be looking to have the work done in late august.

I had upper eyelid surgery done by Dr Visek of the 'Forme clinic' in Prague March 2014. I paid £400
I am very happy with the outcome.

They are worth considering and have many great reviews on what clinic and on here! My review is on here too!

Dr Visek is a maxifillio specialist with many years experience overseas and at home. If you contact them please mention me,my name is Julie,they will remember me :-)

Good luck with your search

Also, it all depends on your bodies healing rate,as to how long your recovery will be. Myself,well I looked like I had been 10 round with Tyson for at least a week,but people differ..I started seeing real results within two/three months..but I am told it can take a year until all the healing has taken place..Actually my eyes just got better and better and I like the fact they slant up ever so slightly,sort of almond shape!

.. Obtain advice on which Vits to take pre op and also the diet. I take vit B complex tablets anyway and eat lots of veg especially dark green veg.

Thank you for your inquiry.
Well, as I know from my british patients, the average costs for a blepharoplasty anywere close to you (Lincoln, Nottingham, Sheffield or even Manchester) are not higher than here in Berlin. So if the price is your first criterion of selection, than seeking such surgery abroad is not always a good choice. Apart of that it is always better to rely on individual consultation. Assuming from your nice and sympathetic face on the enclosed photo you will be able to negotiate good price anyway and anywhere in the world.

Eye Lid Surgery
Enhancing your appearance with eyelid surgery

Cosmetic eyelid surgery, called blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, and give a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.

Specifically, eyelid surgery can treat
. Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
. Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids
. Bags under the eyes
. Droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris (colored portion of the eye)
. Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

Is it right for me?

Eyelid surgery is usually performed on adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles and have realistic goals for improvement of the upper and/or lower eyelids and surrounding area.

You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. Good candidates are:
. Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
. Non-smokers
. Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for blepharoplasty
. Individuals without serious eye conditions

You must tell your doctor if you have any of
these medical conditions:
. Eye disease such as glaucoma, dry eye or a detached retina
. Thyroid disorders such as Graves’ disease and under or overactive thyroid
. Cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure or other circulatory disorders or diabetes

Types of Lower Eyelid

Transconjunctival Lower Blepharoplasty

The transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty is a procedure where, mainly, the goal is the removal of bulging orbital fat. The transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty is less invasive than the other two blepharoplasty procedures, however it does not get rid of extra skin; therefore, patients with significant excess skin require that skin to be excised or tightened.

Transcutaneous Lower Blepharoplasty

The transcutaneous lower blepharoplasty, or skin approach, has the main goal of removing excess skin, orbital fat, as well as orbicularis muscle. It is a highly invasive procedure that may leave scar tissue inside of the lid that would risk altering the shape of the eyelid opening. Unlike the transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty, the transcutaneous lower blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and muscle without making a second incision.

Tissue-Sparing Lower Blepharoplasty

The tissue-sparing lower blepharoplasty is a procedure where, unlike the transconjunctival and transcutaneous blepharoplasty procedures, no orbital fat is removed. The tissue-sparing lower blepharoplasty focuses on direct repair and tightening of the orbital septum and/or capsulopalpebral fascia. With the tissue sparing lower blepharoplasty, there is no risk of hollowness immediately following or over time, no risk of eyelid collapse, less risk of lid shape change, and a low chance of future fat bulging, however this procedure is still new in comparison to the other two procedures, and therefore procedures are performed on a very selective basis.

Cost for Upper and Lower Lid Blepharoplasty is approximately $5500.00 CAD.

In my practice both eyes are covered for 1 hour to try and limit the inevitable swelling that happens following the surgery. After the first hour one eye is uncovered so that you can see. The remaining cover is removed the following morning but can be taken off sooner if necessary.
