Eyelid Surgery in Nice

Restore the radiance of the eyes

This is the earliest request in facial rejuvenation. The objective for the Doctor Philippe Kestemont cosmetic surgery, aesthetic medicine in Nice is to correct: an excess of skin, a hernia of fatty pockets or a loss of volume and projection of the eyelids giving a hollow eye appearance.

The quality of this eyelid surgery will depend on the restoration of the “radiance of the eyes” which gives the face a light! It is essential to remain conservative and remove only a moderate amount of skin and fat to keep a “full” look, witnessing the youthful appearance of the eyes. This is what Dr. Philippe Kestemont, cosmetic surgery and cosmetic medicine in Nice offers by practicing cosmetic surgery of the Face and Neck in Nice.

Cosmetic surgery of the upper eyelid

This procedure will be performed by Dr. Philippe Kestemont, cosmetic surgeon of the face and neck in Nice, France, using a thin incision hidden in the palpebral crease. It should remain almost invisible once the eye is open after the removal of the threads.

This aesthetic surgery poses few problems as a rule and allows for a rapid resumption of social life with a real feeling of “well-being”, a feeling of openness and lightness of the eyes. Combined with Botox, it allows for a very complete rejuvenation of the upper face.

Cosmetic surgery of the lower eyelid

This is a more sophisticated and complex cosmetic surgery, proposed by Dr. Philippe Kestemont, specialist in cosmetic surgery of the face and neck in Nice. Here too, a small amount of skin and fat is removed, but the healing of this fine incision hidden under the eyelashes can lead to changes in the shape of the eyelid, giving the dreaded round eye appearance.

It is therefore essential to master all the techniques of lower blepharoplasty to know how to “prevent and correct” these possible problems. For example, it is possible to avoid this scar in order to remove fatty pockets by passing through the inner side of the eyelid, thus excluding any risk of a round eye.

BEFORE AND AFTER EYELINING Cosmetic surgery of the eyelids in Nice


An ophthalmological assessment is necessary before any eyelid surgery. Like any surgical procedure, it must be performed in a surgical clinic, even with local or locoregional anesthesia. The correction of dark circles is not always ensured by surgery because the problems of bluish coloration require additional medical techniques.

The combination of Botox and Hyaluronic acid injections with eyelid surgery has produced results that are as spectacular for the upper face as the heavy techniques of frontotemporal lifts.

Dr. Philippe Kestemont practices cosmetic surgery and aesthetic medicine of the face and neck in his office in Nice, at the Saint George aesthetic clinic located in Nice.
