Eyelid correction

At Haaglanden Clinics in The Hague, highly skilled and BIG registered plastic surgeons with years of experience in plastic surgery work. If you experience a heavy and tired feeling around the eyes or feel that you appear older and more fatigued, an upper eyelid correction or eyebrow lift can be a good treatment to alleviate your complaints.


What are drooping upper eyelids?

Drooping upper eyelids are usually a result of the tissues around the eye becoming lax. Specifically, the skin, muscle, and underlying fatty tissue can stretch to the extent that they hang over the upper eyelids or even onto the lashes. This can cause symptoms such as:

  • Limited field of vision as you see your upper eyelids
  • A heavy and tired feeling around the eyes
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty placing contact lenses
  • Challenges with eye makeup application
  • Feeling that you look tired or older
  • Upper eyelid correction
  • Drooping upper eyelids can be corrected through an upper eyelid correction procedure. After this procedure, you will have a refreshed and relaxed appearance, and the mentioned symptoms often decrease.

Consultation for eyelid correction
Every gaze and every patient is different. The plastic surgeon, therefore, analyzes individually whether an eyelid correction will achieve the desired result. Drooping upper eyelids may also result from a low position of the eyebrows or occur in combination with a low position of the eyebrows. In such cases, the plastic surgeon may recommend (additional) eyebrow correction.

There may also be a poor function of the upper eyelid muscle, requiring tightening of the muscle. Crow’s feet do not disappear through the surgery and can only be addressed with the muscle relaxant botulinum toxin. Individual solutions are possible for all these problems. Your plastic surgeon will collaborate with you to create a desired treatment plan.
