Duration of surgery
The operation of both upper eyelids takes about 45 minutes, but with the marking, explanation and postoperative cooling, the patient will be in the clinic for about 2 hours in total.
The ELZA surgical team creates a pleasant and a relaxed atmosphere, where the client feels comfortable, and we attach a great deal of importance to ensure patients are relaxed and pain free in the perioperative period (just after surgery) in particular. This might sound slightly disturbing; it isn’t. To put this in context, after the surgery, many people comment that they actually preferred to undergo eyelid surgery than to visit their dentist.
Experience with eyelid surgery and ELZA
The ELZA Institute in Zurich, Switzerland has extensive experience of all types of eyelid surgery, including Asian eyelid surgery. Dr. Paridaens, ELZA’s consultant oculoplastic surgeon, has performed more than 35,000 oculoplastic procedures, and patients around the world have sought his help for surgical eyelid correction. He is also often asked by ophthalmologists and plastic surgeons to perform reconstructive operations following failed corrections elsewhere.
