Over the years, the upper eyelids can sag, sink and make us look older than we actually are. Drooping upper eyelids can become noticeable at an early age. The skin in the area of the upper eyelids loses its elasticity, which often leads to the formation of drooping eyelids and a tired facial expression with increasing age.
But don’t worry – you don’t have to put up with it! An upper eyelid lift can solve the problem and your face will look younger and fresher again.
In the area of the eyes, upper eyelid lifting is one of the most frequently performed routine procedures. Nevertheless, you should only ever entrust yourself to an experienced specialist in an appropriately renowned clinic or specialist practice. The operation usually takes less than an hour, is performed under local anesthesia and does not require in-patient treatment. If not only drooping eyelids but also tear sacs have formed, upper eyelid correction can be combined with lower eyelid lifting if required.
We will happily advise you on your individual options. Simply arrange a non-binding consultation in our specialist practice for facial surgery in Berlin Mitte.
In principle, every operation is associated with certain risks – ranging from the side effects of anaesthesia to possible wound healing disorders. Our long-standing practice and surgery team reduces these risks to a minimum. This also includes the use of the latest surgical techniques and materials. After the operation, our practice team remains in close contact with you, monitors wound healing and provides tips and information on professional aftercare.
You should always consider a tightening of the upper eyelids if the drooping eyelids restrict your field of vision (medical reason) or if you consider them to be a stressful, aesthetic disadvantage for you. There is no specific age limit for the procedure – however, sufficient excess tissue must be present in order to be able to perform a tightening procedure at all. If you suffer from an acute eye disease, such as increased intraocular pressure, the procedure is unfortunately not an option for you. In the case of thyroid diseases and metabolic diseases such as diabetes, a detailed medical examination must be carried out before the operation can be performed. In principle, the physical condition of the patient can have a great influence on the healing process and thus on the outcome of the operation.
Apart from the aforementioned medical exceptions, upper eyelid liftings are often regarded as operations that are not medically necessary and the costs are therefore usually not covered by the health insurance companies. The costs for the operation cannot be fixed at a flat rate. They depend on the individual starting position and the shape of your drooping eyelids. During a first consultation, I therefore take a close look at your eyes and examine them in detail. I will explain the necessary steps to you, describe the expected result and provide you with a corresponding cost estimate.
Your face is an expression of your personality and the upper eyelid lift is a cosmetic surgery in which the aesthetic result plays an important role.
