An upper eyelid correction is intended to remove excess skin, fat and muscle tissue from the upper eyelid. Saggy eyelids don't just give you an aged look, many people literally experience heavy, tired eyes. Did you know that the eyelid correction is therefore one of the most common procedures? But is it also possible to undergo this procedure in the summer?
It is best to decide for yourself whether this is an option for you. The eyelid correction takes place under local anesthesia and takes about thirty minutes, you can go home the same day. Recovery takes between 7-14 days! During this period you are not allowed to swim, exercise intensively or bend over.
It is best to go outside with sunglasses and a hat. As long as you protect the wounds and later the scars well against UV radiation, an eyelid correction in the summer is an excellent option. It even has advantages: most people have more rest in the summer and therefore the eyelids recover better. In addition, the eyes are often swollen after the procedure and discolouration may be visible. You can hide this nicely with sunglasses that you wear a little more often in the summer! The eyelid correction is therefore not a seasonal procedure. We recommend applying a factor of 50 to scars for the first year after each procedure.
