• First of all, the surgeon takes a felt-tip pen and marks on the eyelids which part of the skin can be removed. Then the patient is given injections with local anaesthetic under the skin to be removed. These injections are somewhat painful, somewhat comparable to the anaesthetic used by dentists.
  • After the anaesthetic, you feel little or none of the operation. Your face is cleansed, you are covered in sterile cloths, but your face is not covered. At the end of the operation, which lasts about one hour, the wound is sealed.
  • After the operation, you may be given ice goggles and you can relax for a while. We check to make sure that you have no subsequent bleeding. If this is not the case, you can go home. Your eyes are not bandaged, so your eyesight is normal.
  • For the first week, your eyelids are swollen black and blue. After two weeks, you are once again reasonably presentable. You have to wait patiently for two months in order to assess the final result. The scar from the raising of the eyebrows can remain visible for a longer period.
