Upper and lower eyelid surgery for male and female
Cosmetic eyelid surgery also known as Blepharoplasty. The surgical procedure is to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids and lower eyelids, or both. To restoring firmness to the area surrounding the eyes and giving a more youthful appearance.
Guide for eyelid surgery
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or hides the natural contour of the upper eyelid
- Excess skin that is sagging down from the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing the vision
- Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids
- Droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
- Bags under the eyes
Steps for the lower eyelid surgery
To perform lower eyelid surgery, the plastic surgeon first makes an incision below the lower eyelashes. The incision is made carefully in a discreet place hidden from plain view. Excess fat and skin are removed as the surgeon sees fit. Sometimes the fat is redistributed in order to minimize puffiness and uneven swelling. If muscle laxity is an existing problem, this will also be corrected during surgery. The incision made to perform eyelid lift surgery heals quickly among the eyelid’s surrounding natural creases.
Steps for the upper eyelid surgery
For upper eyelid surgery, generally an incision is hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelid and extends slightly beyond the outside corner into the laugh lines or other existing creases. Through this incision, excess skin and fatty tissue are removed. Because the incision follows the natural contour of the upper eyelid, it usually is inconspicuous.It is not uncommon for upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery to be performed at the same time. Together they can correct the tired look brought about by aging and environment, and give the younger appearance you have desired.

The plastic surgeon profile
Preparation before eyelid surgery
- Inform the doctor about any allergies, any serious medical conditions, and all medications you are taking (both prescription and non-prescription).
- Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, etc) , and vitamin E for two weeks prior
- Refrain from smoking two weeks before and four weeks after surgery
- Plan to be in Thailand 7 days altogether
After the operation it is common for patients to experience a stretched sensation around the eyes – this sensation usually lasts only a couple of days. Full recovery from an upper eyelid surgery can take up to 10 days and a mild pain killer may need to be prescribed. Usually the patient can return to daily activities soon after the surgery.
Post Operative Care
For the first week, you’ll need to avoid activities that dry the eyes, including reading, watching television, wearing contacts, and using a computer. Also avoid excessive blinking, which leads to increased swelling. You should also wear dark sunglasses for a couple of weeks to protect your eyes from wind and sun irritation. The eyes may tire easily for several weeks; frequent naps are helpful. For the first three or four weeks, you should avoid any activity that increases blood flow to the eyes, including bending, lifting, crying and sports. Your surgeon will let you know when you are ready for exercise. Also avoid drinking alcohol, which can lead to fluid retention and delay recovery

5 Star testimonial for upper and lower eyelid surgery
A couple of months ago, I had an upper and lower eyelid surgery done in Bangkok.
After several weeks of web research and many offers received from clinics and brokers, i found Intermedisol.
The service provided by Beate can be considered as very professional and very much different from the others. No marketing, no blabla, but very much focused on giving clear and conclusive information about the surgery and the clinics suitable for doing the job.
By recommendation from her, i found a very good surgeon who did excellent works.
If I ever have another issue, I will directly consult Beate, but not wasting my time with others any more.

Upper eyelid surgery blepharoplasty
There was lots of choices. Communication from Beate from Intermedisol was timely, and answered all questions.
great because it was very informative (when trying to organize a relatively unknown surgery – because I’d never had it done before – from the other side of the world)
from the moment I stepped in the door I felt welcomed and safe. The initial consultation was calming and informative; both Rob and I felt like I was in good hands, and options of eyelid surgery patiently explained. Dr Sutin was so gentle and patient, and the operation itself was comfortable. Afterwards, there was little swelling and bruising. I had my stitches out on day seven due to new year’s office closures, and they were pretty much back to normal then.
I hadn’t seen my eyelids in 5 years! It is fabulous to have a wide-eyed look again, and every day I am so pleased when I look in the mirror. One month later there is a slight scarring on my eyelid crease which I’m told will all be back to normal by the six-month point. But it is easily covered up with a minimal concealing (makeup) product.
