Eyelid Surgery Review by Suzan, from Germany – Testimonial
Suzan, from Germany
“I now look five years younger”
“I have been working at the office, in front of a computer for over 10 years (I’m 35 now) and you could really see it on my face… My eyes have been tired all the time and unfortunately I developed enormous eye bags that were bluish and looked as if I had some kind of serious condition, when in fact the problem was just my work. Other than that I look quite good and fit so I decided to do something with those eye bags and I chose surgery after trying many different creams.
Before surgery I called them many times and sent some emails so I was prepared when I arrived. The procedure didn’t take long, about 40 minutes I think and doctor and nurses were very kind to me. They gave me many advice afterwards, a complete list of do’s and don’ts and called me later as well to see if I was satisfied with result. I’m very much in love with my new eyes, now I look about 5 years younger than I used to.”

How Can Eyelid Surgery Help?
The main purpose of eyelid surgery is to remove the excess skin on the eyelid. The excess skin on the eyelid can occur due to different reasons. In general, the skin on the eye will lose its elasticity and flexibility with age. This will cause the skin on the eye to go down and have a saggy look. This saggy look might not be even. This means the left eyelid might be more saggy than the right eyelid or vice versa. The saggy look in the eye might significantly impact the self-confidence of the individuals. Eyelid surgery can help these patients to achieve the younger eye look in their dreams.
How Is Eyelid Surgery Operated?
Eyelid surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries around the world. In this surgery, the surgeon will first assess the eyes and eyelids of the patient. When necessary, eyelid surgery can be combined with undereye bag surgery. Also, the wrinkles around the eye can be reduced depending on the patient’s condition.
After the initial examination, the surgery date will be arranged for the patient. In this surgery, the surgeon will remove the excess skin on the eye. To do this, the surgeon needs to make a cut along the eyelid. The cut will be hidden by the crest of the eye. Then, the skin is removed and the eyelid is lifted. After that, the surgeon will suture the eyelid.
How Long Does Eyelid Surgery Take?
In general, eyelid surgery takes between 30-40 minutes. When the pre-op preparations are considered, the entire process will take around 1-1.5 hours. The surgery is operated on under local anaesthesia. This makes eyelid surgery recovery easier and faster. The patients can immediately go back home or hotel after this surgery. In most cases, there is a need for hospitalization.
