This happens before the operation.
The most common procedure in the eye area is the upper eyelid tightening with the aim to create a fresh yet natural expression. In a non-binding initial conversation, I explain the technology, show you before / after pictures and clarify you about the possible intervention exactly. Upper lid lifts are often combined with a side temples lift. This way, excess skin on the side of the upper lid can be treated perfectly. The reason to undergo surgery on the lower eyelids is a swelling with or without significant skin excess. When it comes to wrinkles on the lower eyelid, Fraxel laser treatment may be more useful than surgery. The tear gutter, which is often responsible for a tired facial expression, can be treated with autologous fat or hyaluronic acid and fillers. What is the right treatment plan for you, we clarify together.
That happens with the upper eyelid tightening.
With the upper eyelid tightening, the skin incision is made directly in the eyelid fold, so that the scar is hardly visible later. In addition to the removal of excess skin and fatty tissue, an internal brow lift or raising the lacrimal gland may be necessary if necessary. A lateral lifting of the eyebrows can eliminate the excess on the lateral edge of the eyelid. Here, the cut is made in the hairy area of the temple, without dissecting hair. So this cut remains almost invisible. With the right technique, this operation can be performed almost scar-free.
That happens with the lower eyelid tightening.
There are two methods for a lower eyelid operation. I work with a scar-invisible technique that is performed transconjunctival through the mucous membranes of the eye. Scars can be placed in invisible places, which is especially important for the eye region. With a gentle cut in the area of the eyelashes can be treated with the classic technique, the lower eyelids. Excess skin and fatty tissue can be removed gently. The scar is barely visible to the naked eye and well hidden under the eyelashes. Which technique is right for you, decides your anatomy and initial situation.
The procedure and the aftercare.
A big advantage of these interventions is the outpatient surgery in our practice with a local anesthetic or a twilight sleep. Should it be necessary, a general anesthetic can also be resorted to. It is well known that it is best to cure yourself at home, so you can drive home with a companion just hours after surgery. For possible pain you will get the right pain medication from us. In order to control the wound healing and to help you with questions, a plaster change is planned after two days. The stringing then takes place seven days after the operation. Once the threads have been pulled and the crusts have been removed, you can start with the scar treatment LINK. It will be about 10-14 days light bruising visible, working you are basically already the next day, make-up you can re-apply after about 10 days. Your body needs about 1 week of rest, which means physical effort should be avoided.
My team and I are always available for you should you have any questions. You can reach me after surgery at night always on my mobile number. Further follow-up appointments in my practice are important to optimally accompany the healing process and are agreed with you before the procedure.
After a successful operation and waiting for the healing process, you will not be in pain and will be able to easily do all the activities again.
