Upper eyelid correction

Upper eyelid correction or upper eyelid surgery helps to correct sagging of the upper eyelids and puffiness (so called „droopy“ upper eyelid). An incision is performed in a natural appearing eyelid fold, thus being less noticeable. It helps to „strengthen“ a ring muscle around the eye area.

Swellings and bruises after the surgery can remain (but may not) for 2 weeks. During this period, any physical activity shall be avoided. The final result of the surgery is visible after 6-12 months.

The effect of the surgery lasts for 7-10 years and is very individual, depending on the patient’s lifestyle. Smoking, alcohol consumption, night work and UV-radiation shorten the maintaining outcome of the surgery.

Dr. Sellend is a member of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).

Estonian Health Care Board has granted Dr. Merle Sellend activity licence no L02035 for practicing plastic surgery.
