EYELID LIFTING LID CORRECTION BLEPHAROPLASTY
Eyelid correction, eyelid lifting, tear sacs
Aesthetic eyelid correction (Blepharoplasty) involves the removal of surplus fatty tissue and drooping excess skin on the upper or lower eyelid (tear sacs) which causes a permanently tired or sad expression.
The removal of the tear sacs leads to a smoothing of the lower eyelid. The result is a clearer, more alert and relaxed facial expression. Crow’s feet, dark rings under the eyes or drooping eyebrows cannot be corrected by eyelid lifting. An upper or lower lid lift is carried out on its own or in combination with other operative corrections in the region of the face such as a facelift, neck lift, temple lift or eyebrow lift, for example.
If you are considering having an aesthetic intervention carried out on the eyelids, this website should help you to understand the operative procedure, present any possible complications and show you the post-operative results you can expect.
In addition, this website is intended to help you to be better prepared for consultations with your plastic surgeon.
During this personal consultation you will receive all the additional information which is vital and specific to you as a patient. Please do not hesitate to ask questions if there is anything that you do not understand.
When is correction of the eyelid beneficial for me?
Correction of the eyelid can improve your external appearance as well as your self-confidence.
Before you decide on correction of the eyelid, you should carefully consider your expectations and discuss these with your plastic surgeon.
At the initial consultation it is helpful to demonstrate exactly what you would like corrected in front of a mirror. This helps your surgeon understand your expectations and decide whether they are realistic and if they can be achieved through corrective intervention.
