Plastic Surgery

Degenerative changes on the eyelids are not only an aesthetic problem as they can often cause serious and permanent changes of the anterior eye segment. Our surgeons perform all types of surgeries on eyelids in order to enable the normal function of the eye. The procedures are performed under local anesthesia, and patients are discharged from the hospital the same day.

During the process of aging, the skin of the eyelids becomes thinner, less elastic; the loss of support of connective tissue causes the fat tissue to prolapse; thinning of the muscle tendons leads to drooped lids (Ptosis). Excess skin that hangs over the lid margin couses dermatochalasis of upper and lower eyelid; loss of support tissue leads to excessive outward and inward overturn of the eyelid margin called ectropion and entropion. Everyday action of the facial muscles (frown, amazement, laughing) creates wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, on the outer angle of the eye. 

To correct the aging changes, Svjetlost currently offer non-surgical methods (Botox, dermal fillers) and surgical methods.

Svjetlost operates blepharochalasis of the upper and lower eyelids and ptosis of different origins. The incision is made in the natural grooves (skin crease) of the eyelid so that the scar is invisible and the excess of skin is removed and, if necessary, lid is fixed in the required position (ptosis). This procedure gives the opportunity to look good and feel young for a long time to come.
