Do you have drooping eyelids and want to rejuvenate your eyes with blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to change the appearance of the eyelids.
The eyes are the first thing we look at when we meet somebody. For this reason, the eyes and the face are deemed to be the part of our body we spend the most effort on. That's why blepharoplasty is the third most-performed cosmetic surgery in the world.
If you are considering eyelid surgery to rejuvenate your eyes, Turó Park Clinics is fortunate to have several specialists in this cosmetic treatment. Do not hesitate to make an appointment now for an initial consultation to discover the options that best suit your needs and expectations.

What are the different areas involved in eyelid surgery?
A blepharoplasty consists of removing excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids which immediately improves the patient's appearance and in many cases also their visual field.
Additionally, in the lower eyelids the main focus lies on fat removal and fat displacement with the purpose of taking away the eyelid bags developed over your lifetime.
A full treatment, known as a 4-lid blepharoplasty, treats both upper and lower eyelids and can really change somebody's life as it dramatically improves their physical appearance as well as a person's self-esteem.
How can I treat my droopy eyelid or ptosis?
An often under-recognised lower position of the upper eyelid, called a ptosis or droopy eyelid, can also be treated simultaneously. A droopy eyelid usually occurs with ageing, but can occur in adolescents as well, often as a result of wearing contact lens.
This, and all other aspects of the eyes and their surrounding tissues will be evaluated when visiting us for an intake blepharoplasty consultation with Doctor Rob van der Veen, to offer you the best possible solution that fits your specific needs.
What does our blepharoplasty treatment usually consist of?
Step 1: The pre-operative consultation
Before the operation, an appointment must be held with the oculoplastics surgeon to perform an examination of the ocular area and eyelids.
A diagnosis that determines the different points that will be corrected.
Step 2: The surgery
Aesthetic eyelid surgery takes about 30 minutes and is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation, but can be perfectly performed under local anesthesia alone. New techniques have made for a very short down time, ranging from a few days to a week maximum.
Note that lower eyelid bag surgery and ptosis surgery can be performed without any external incision and scar, as it is performed with a hidden incision on the inside of the eyelid.
Step 3: The postoperative
Blepharoplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis: the patient can go home at night. New techniques have made the recovery time very short, from 7 to 10 days at most.
Making it a truly minimally invasive procedure with maximum result.

Recovery after a blepharoplasty
As we have previously mentioned, these are minimally invasive procedures with short recovery times.
However, it is important to take steps to ensure a quick recovery and there are some simple steps you can take. To heal quickly, avoid:
- Strenuous activity and swimming for a few days,
- Smoking, as smoke can irritate your eyes,
- Wearing contact lenses or rubbing your eyes.
