Eyelid lift – Eyelid correction

Eyelid correction – what to do: Only upper eyelid surgery or a complete eyelid surgery? Why drooping eyelids can be more than just an aesthetic problem – and where does modern plastic surgery stand with regard to this topic? These are just a few questions which the renowned experts in this field answer every day: The specialist and plastic surgeon Dr. Markus Klöppel, MD, in Munich.

The first look can make the difference

The first impression is often crucial – and the expression of our eyes plays the most important role. An eyelid lift may be necessary due to ageing, gravity and environmental factors. The results of ageing: First of all, there is the thinning of the skin and formation of wrinkling, later the easing of the connective tissue tension and relaxation of the eye ring muscles. Fatty tissue pushes through from the inside to the front. A bulging occurs on the upper eyelids, on the lower eyelids swelling and puffiness occurs. A constantly sad and tired-looking overall impression is created.
An eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) results in a watchful, open eye, a radiant look and is also suitable for people who wish to remove the eye bags.

On the upper eyelid, the crease is hidden by excess skin. The eye appears smaller than it is, sometimes the field of vision is even partially limited. With an upper eyelid lift, prolapsed fat deposits and bulging and sagging skin are removed. The upper eyelid lift surgery is among the most frequently performed operations in aesthetic surgery and often stunning results can thus obtained: An attractive eye shape is restored and a rested and fresh face achieved.

The procedure is done under local anaesthesia — combined with twilight sleep if required. On request, an eyelid surgery can be done under general anaesthesia. The surgery is done as an outpatient in our clinic in the medicenter in Munich-Solln. This procedure takes about 1 hour.

Upper eyelid lift – What does an operation involve?

A properly performed eyelid surgery requires an exact incision so that the operation is hardly visible after the first few days. The procedure can be done endoscopically in the so-called keyhole technology. The skin incision is placed in the existing eyelid crease of the upper eyelid, so that the fine scars later are not visible.

Muscle and fatty tissue are removed gradually and moderately. On the lower eyelids, so-called „baggy eyes“ caused by sagging skin, muscle tissue, and bulging of the fat tissue can occur. There are often eye bags often even among young people. An eye bag procedure thus appeals to all ages.

Lower eyelid lift – correction surgery

The procedure is done under local anaesthesia — combined with twilight sleep if required. On request the procedure of the lower eyelid lift can be done under general anaesthesia. Dr. Klöppel performs the lower eyelid correction as an outpatient

in our clinic in the MediCenter in Munich-Solln. This procedure takes about 1 hour. Again, after a postop rest and observation period of an hour, you can go home.

Lower eyelid lift – What does an operation involve?

With a surgical lower eyelid lift, the incision is almost invisible under the the lower eyelash rim. A special muscle suspension and toning will strengthen the connective tissue structures of the lower lid,

then excess skin and fatty tissue deposits are removed. In the same procedure, dark circles can be removed. The lower eyelid lift treats the entire region just below the eye.

Lower eyelid lift – post surgery

The wound is covered with fine plaster strips, no bandage is necessary. On the day of the operation and in the following days after an eyelid surgery, constant cooling can aid in reducing possible blue discolouration and swelling rapidly.

After four to six days after the eyelid lift, the plaster strips are removed and already after four to eight days, you are fully socially acceptable. Sports and the sauna should be postponed for about four to six weeks.
