Lower & Upper Eyelid Lift

YOU DON’T WANT SAGGING LIDS ANYMORE – A CLEAR, ALERT LOOK AND AN UNRESTRICTED FIELD OF VISION?

It’s no secret that in the course of the aging process, connective tissue loses volume and tone. The area around the eyes is particularly affected by this. Excess skin causes drooping eyelids, the eyebrows droop and the lower eyelid casts gray shadows. The facial expression appears tired, sad and stressed. A characteristic in which one or the other recognizes him/herself.

Even small surgical interventions allow positive changes, not only for an awake and radiant look, but also in the fight against migraines and facial field restrictions due to drooping eyelids.

WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE THE OPERATION.

The most common procedure in the eye region is the upper eyelid lift with the aim of creating a fresh yet natural expression. In a no-obligation initial consultation, we will explain the technique, show you before/after pictures and explain the possible procedure in detail. Upper eyelid lifts are often combined with a lateral temple lift. In this way, excess skin on the side of the upper eyelid can be perfectly treated. The reason to undergo lower eyelid surgery is swelling with or without significant excess skin. When it comes purely to wrinkling of the lower eyelid, Fraxel laser treatment may be more appropriate than surgery. Tear troughs, which are often responsible for a tired facial expression, can be treated with autologous fat or hyaluronic acid and fillers. We will clarify together what is the most suitable treatment plan for you.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WITH AN UPPER EYELID LIFT.

In an upper eyelid lift, the incision is made directly in the fold of the eyelid so that the scar is hardly visible later. In addition to the removal of excess skin and fatty tissue, an inner brow lift or lifting of the lacrimal gland may be necessary. A lateral lift of the eyebrows can also eliminate the excess at the lateral edge of the eyelid. Here the incision is made in the hairy area of the temple without shaving out any hair. This way, the incision remains almost invisible. With the right technique, this operation can be performed almost scar-free.

THE PROCEDURE

In upper eyelid lifting, the skin incision is made directly in the fold of the eyelid so that the scar is hardly visible later. In addition to the removal of excess skin and fatty tissue, an inner brow lift may be necessary as described above. A lateral eyebrow lift can also eliminate the excess at the lateral eyelid margin. Here, the incision is made in the hairy area of the temple without shaving out any hair. Thus, this incision remains almost invisible. With the right technique, this operation can be performed with almost no scarring.

THE INTERVENTION AND AFTERCARE

A great advantage of these procedures is that they can be performed on an outpatient basis in our surgery with a local anaesthetic or twilight sleep. Should it be necessary, a general anaesthetic can also be used as an in-patient. It is well known that the best way to recover is at home, so you can go home with an escort just a few hours after the operation. We will give you the appropriate pain medication to counteract any pain. In order to check the healing of the wound and to assist you with any questions, a change of plaster is planned after two days. The stitches are then removed seven days after the operation. Once the stitches have been removed and the crusts loosened, you can start with the scar care LINK. Slight bruising will be visible for about 10-14 days, but you will generally be able to work the next day. You can apply make-up again after about 10 days. Your body needs about 1 week of rest, i.e. physical exertion should be avoided.

My team and I are available for you at any time should you have any questions. You can always reach me on my mobile number after the operation, even at night. Further check-up appointments in my surgery are important in order to optimally accompany the healing process and will be arranged with you before the operation.

After a successful operation and waiting for the healing process, you will have no pain and can resume all activities without any problems.
