Eyelid lift:
what you need to know

Eyelid surgery is more than just a cosmetic procedure. It is an art form in plastic surgery that is both aesthetic and functional. The procedure is carried out on an outpatient basis and usually takes between 60-90 minutes. Anesthesia is usually carried out using local anesthesia or in addition to twilight sleep.

Ursachen und Lösungen durch Oberlidstraffung

Severe drooping eyelids can occur for genetic reasons or can develop over time due to decreasing elasticity in the tissue and weakness of the eyelid muscles. These changes are particularly pronounced in the area of the upper eyelids. During an upper eyelid lift, which is carried out in the upper eyelid crease, excess skin is removed and the muscles are tightened if necessary. In some cases, measured fat removal can be carried out in this area. The result is a more awake and rejuvenated appearance, which can also reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes. The scar is positioned in the area of the upper eyelid crease so that it is hardly visible.

Tightening of the eyelids for a rejuvenated eye area

The eyelid lift procedure not only improves the aesthetic appearance, but also rejuvenates the entire appearance of the eye area. This can increase self-confidence and contribute to an overall more positive attitude towards life.

Blepharoplasty: The art of eyelid correction

Die Blepharoplastik ist eine spezialisierte Form der Augenlidkorrektur. Bei diesem Eingriff werden nicht nur Schlupflider korrigiert, sondern auch Tränensäcke und andere Probleme, die das Erscheinungsbild der Augen beeinträchtigen können.

The role of the eyelid muscles in eyelid lift

The muscles and connective tissue play a crucial role in the development of droopy eyelids. The upper eyelids relax. Over time, the muscles can relax, resulting in drooping eyelids. During eyelid surgery, these muscles are tightened to achieve a younger appearance.

Procedure of the operation (upper eyelid & lower eyelid)

During the procedure, patients have the option to choose local anesthesia and twilight sleep. During an upper eyelid lift, excess skin and, if necessary, fatty tissue are removed. During a lower eyelid lift, the incision is made either in the natural crease of the eyelid or through the mucous membrane of the lower eyelid.

Tightening of the upper eyelids

Upper eyelid lifting, also known as an upper eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin in the upper eyelid area. This procedure usually takes about 20 minutes per side and is performed by an experienced surgeon. The skin in the area of the upper eyelid fold is precisely removed. In many cases, the eyelid muscles are also tightened to achieve optimal results.

The procedure can be carried out under local anesthesia or in twilight sleep. In rare cases, general anesthesia may also be necessary. After the procedure, the incisions are carefully stitched, although the scar is usually barely visible as it lies exactly in the natural eyelid crease. Steristrips or bandage strips are used to protect the wound and are removed after about 7 days.

Tightening of the lower eyelids

Lower eyelid tightening is aimed at correcting bags under the eyes and excess skin in the under-eye area. This surgical procedure can rejuvenate the entire appearance of the face and provide a more alert look. The surgeon makes an incision either directly under the eyelash line or in the inner area of the eyelid so that no visible scar is left behind.

The procedure for an eyelid correction for the lower eyelids is similar to that for the upper eyelids. The skin is disinfected and covered in a sterile manner, and the procedure is carried out under local anesthesia or twilight sleep. In some cases, general anesthesia may also be necessary. After removing the excess skin and, if necessary, fatty tissue, the wound is carefully stitched.
