Frequently asked Questions

Will I have ugly scars?

A cosmetic correction of your eyelids is a minor operation. You can go home almost immediately after the procedure. Hardly any visible scars will appear after a correction of your eyelids. It is a very common procedure.

When will my eyelids be completely recovered?

The stitches will be removed a week after the procedure. Your eyelids will still be slightly swollen. This will become less and less. The swelling will probably be mostly gone a week after the removal of the stitches. It takes an average of six weeks for all the swelling to disappear.

Will I get an unnatural appearance after the treatment?

A correction of your eyelids is a relatively minor procedure. I have have a lot of experience with these kind of corrections. The inevitable scar will appear in a fold of your eyelid, which means that the scar is hardly or not visible at all. I strive to make you look completely natural.

Does the insurance reimburse this procedure?

In most cases, a correction of your upper eyelids is not reimbursed by your health insurer. However, it can differ per health insurer. Those who do reimburse the correction only do that if the excess covers at least half of the pupil and the eyelid gap is 7 mm or smaller. The requirements for reimbursement can change annually. So, keep a close eye on your health insurer’s website. A correction of the lower eyelids will never be reimbursed.

Plastic surgeon

Doctor Xander R. Bakker

I am an experienced plastic surgeon, specialized in cosmetic surgery. I have been working as a plastic surgeon since 2005. For a long time, I have been working as an all-round plastic surgeon in several leading hospitals. Therefore, I have gained a lot of experience. Plastic surgery of the face has always had my special attention.

My work requires a personal and tailor-made approach. This is what makes my work so fascinating. Every time I ask myself: ‘Will I be able to bring a change, which makes the patient happier?’ It’s always great when this is possible, but sometimes it also means saying ‘no’.

I focus completely on aesthetic plastic surgery. My areas of interest are the face, breast corrections, liposuction and lipofilling of the face and body. By attending many international conferences and courses I stay up-to-date. This way you can be assured that I always deliver state-of-the-art work.
