Dr. Gerhard Sattler: "The lower eyelid region is very complex – along with the surgical lower eyelid lifting procedure, we at the Rosenpark Clinic also offer many very effective, minimally-invasive methods for rejuvenating the lower eyelid, such as, for example, hyaluronic acid, botulinum toxin, or fractional laser.“
Nowadays, under-eye bags and excess skin on the lower lid can be corrected in a nearly risk-free fashion on an outpatient basis through lower lid tightening.
At Rosenpark Clinic, we specialize in surgical eyelid lifting. A measure of our success is an appropriate, natural result which reflects your personal facial expressions and individuality.
Creases at the outer edge of the eye, on the lower lid, and especially under-eye bags make the face look haggard and occasionally unfriendly. These form when skin, connective tissue and muscles under the eyes slacken and fat moves into the cavity of the eye. In lower lid correction, the excess skin and fat is removed – for a more friendly look.
In the case of lower eyelid correction with an internal incision in the conjunctival fold, we use light sedation for our patients. The external eyelid tightening is performed under local anesthesia. For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.
Essentially immediately – in the first few days, wearing sunglasses is suggested. Stitches have to be removed after five to seven days. Small bruises and areas of swelling of the eyelids will resolve after seven to 14 days. The procedure itself is performed on an outpatient basis.
