Eyelid lift at the Noahklinik in Kassel

Removal of drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes

Strahlender Blick dank Augenlidstraffung in Kassel

The ageing process can lead to unsightly changes around the eyes. Drooping eyelids make the eyes look small and tired. The sagging of the eyelids also leads to wrinkles and a bulging of the fatty tissue around the eyeball, from which the so-called bags under the eyes develop. These signs of ageing can be corrected by means of eyelid lifting.

Eyelid surgery is one of the most common facial surgical procedures in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery.

Counselling and preliminary examination

What is an eyelid lift and what goal can be achieved?

Excess skin, increased deposits in the eyelids or the slackening of muscles in the eyelid can impair the visual effect of the eyes. Affected patients look tired, unfocused or fatigued. This can be corrected with the help of an eye lift without visible scars. Depending on the initial situation, the following treatment scopes are differentiated (combinations are possible):

Upper eyelid lift / drooping eyelid surgery

An upper eyelid lift helps to correct drooping eyelids. This can correct drooping eyelids. Often in combination with eyebrow lifting.

Lower eyelid lift

In the lower eyelid lift, on the other hand, excess skin is removed through a small incision at the lash line.

Tear sac removal

Even very pronounced bags under the eyes can be removed in this way. For this, the patient's own fat is not removed but transposed to cover the edge and emphasise the midface and make it look younger.

Upper and lower eyelid lifts can be performed in a single procedure. So you look younger and fresher after just one procedure. The look is clearer and more open.

What alternatives are there and why a surgical eyelid lift?

Many different methods are offered (e.g. eyelid correction with plasma pen, without surgical intervention, etc.). The question is, why has your visual defect of the eyes arisen? For example, what is the root cause of your drooping upper eyelids?
If there is excess skin, it must be removed - creams, pens, etc. will not help here. Likewise, if the eyelid ligaments need to be corrected - no permanently beautiful results are achieved without surgical intervention.

Through a detailed consultation, all experienced specialists clarify your initial situation of your upper eyelid, lower eyelid, your skin structure and compare these with your individual wishes. During this appointment, your doctor will explain to you which alternatives are possible for you or whether the aesthetic procedure is appropriate for you.

How is an eyelid lift performed?

The eyelid lift takes place Outpatient under local anaesthetic takes place. You can go home directly after the operation.

Depending on your needs, small incisions are made and placed as inconspicuously as possible. The duration of the eyelid lift treatment depends on the extent of your eyelid surgery.

What risks or complications can occur?

As with any surgical procedure, there are possible complications. The most common ones include wound healing problems, infections, post-operative bleeding, dry eyes and overcorrection. Our many years of experience and the detailed preliminary examination help to reduce the risk of risks. Serious side effects are rare with experienced aesthetic surgeons.

How does the healing process proceed and what should I bear in mind after the eyelid lift?

You should allow yourself to rest the night after the operation. Targeted cooling in the treatment area can help to reduce any swelling that may develop.

You should avoid physical exertion for the first few days after the operation.

As the eyes are very sensitive to light in the first period, it is advisable to wear dark sunglasses. We will be happy to advise you on the optimal healing process at our clinic in Kassel. The stitches will be removed by your attending doctor after about one week.

In the treatment area, there may be a bruise in the area of the lower eyelids (colloquially known as "blue eyes" or "violets"). This usually disappears within 8 to 10 days after the operation.

You should refrain from using cosmetics, make-up and creams in the treatment area until the stitches have been removed. You should also refrain from vigorous "eye rubbing" for the first few weeks after the operation. If you wear contact lenses, we will clarify during the preliminary examination whether you should rather wear glasses during this time.

We will clarify the use of a scar cream to support healing with you during the consultation.

Costs eyelid lift

The exact price of your eyelid surgery depends on your personal prerequisites, your desired change and the resulting surgical effort (for example, required surgery duration, removal of excess skin, do eyelid bands have to be shortened, etc.). Therefore, we can only tell you the individual costs of your eyelid lift after a preliminary examination.

Think about the follow-up cost insurance of your eyelid lift!

Complications occur only rarely, but in this case, the health insurance companies can help you with the follow-up costs (§52 Social Code). Therefore, it is worthwhile to take out a follow-up costs insurance. You can get more information in our consultation hours.
