Eyelid surgery upper eyelid

Upper eyelid surgery, also known as upper blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to improve the appearance and functionality of the eyelids. This surgery may be necessary for people who experience drooping or heavy eyelids that restrict the field of vision or give a tired appearance. Groruddalsklinikken is a recognized clinic that offers this type of operation with a focus on patient safety and quality.

During an eyelid operation on the upper eyelid, the surgeon removes excess skin, fat and muscle mass from the eyelid. This is done to tighten the area and give a more youthful and awake appearance. The procedure can also help improve the field of vision by eliminating obstructions to vision.

Before the operation, the patient will have a thorough consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon at Groruddalsklinikken. The surgeon will assess the patient’s medical history, perform a thorough examination of the eyes and discuss the patient’s expectations and wishes. It is important to be honest and clear during this consultation to ensure that the patient has realistic expectations of the results.

The operation is usually performed under local anaesthetic, but in some cases general anesthesia may be required. The surgeon will make a discreet incision in the natural crease of the eyelid to minimize visible scars. Excess skin, fat and muscle mass are then removed, and the wound is carefully sutured together. After the operation, the patient will be given instructions on how to care for the wounds and reduce swelling and bruising.

After eyelid surgery on the upper eyelid, some discomfort and swelling in the area can be expected. This can be alleviated with painkillers and by keeping the head upright during the rest period. The patient should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for a few weeks after surgery to ensure successful healing.

Groruddalsklinikken is known for its expertise in eyelid surgery and has an experienced team of surgeons who specialize in this type of operation. The clinic has modern facilities and uses advanced technology to ensure the best possible results for patients.

It is important to note that upper eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure, and as with any surgery, there is always some risk involved. Patients should carefully consider the pros and cons of the procedure before making a decision. It is also recommended to choose a reputable clinic such as Groruddalsklinikken and to follow all instructions from the surgeon to ensure a successful and safe operation.
