What will happen on the day of the eyelid repair surgery?

Your doctor will briefly describe to you the steps of the intervention and the pre-operative preparation before you undergo this surgery.

Eyelid repair is a relatively simple and fast procedure. You will be operated on an outpatient basis and you will spend around two hours in the hospital. During the surgery, you will be given local anesthesia, so that you don’t feel any pain or discomfort.

Basically, through this surgery, the doctor removes the extra skin, fat or weekend muscle in the upper or the lower eyelid. The scars resulting from this surgery will be hidden, so you will benefit from an excellent aesthetic outcome.
