Our methods for eyelid lifting

In eyelid lifting, a distinction is made between upper eyelid lifting and lower eyelid lifting – these are procedures that are performed directly on the eyelids – and procedures that tighten and smooth the eyelids but are performed in the surrounding area – such as temple lifting, forehead lifting or midface lifting.

We would like to explain to you here how exactly the upper eyelid lift and the lower eyelid lift are performed.

Upper eyelid lift in Munich

The upper eyelid lift is intended to remove annoying drooping eyelids. An incision is made along the crease of the upper eyelid so that the scars are not or hardly visible after the treatment. An upper eyelid lift takes about 90 minutes and is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anaesthetic. If desired, treatment under twilight sleep or general anaesthesia is of course also possible

Lower eyelid lift in Munich

Lower eyelid lifting is the removal of so-called bags under the eyes. The incision is made below the lash line. The operation takes about 90 minutes and can also be performed under local anaesthetic or, if desired, in twilight sleep or under general anaesthetic.

Important questions about eyelid lifting in Munich

What should a good surgeon consider before an eyelid lift?

Important and often decisive for a really good result is individualised planning and surgery. Although the anatomy is the same from person to person, the geometry of the eyelids varies greatly. And the wishes and ideas for the aesthetic result are also different.

What do you have to bear in mind after an eyelid lift?

You should refrain from physical exertion and sport for the first three weeks after the eyelid lift. Sunbathing and solarium visits should also be avoided during this phase.

How long will I be unable to socialise after the eyelid lift?

One week after the eyelid lift you are usually socially acceptable again. If there are still slight bruises or swellings, you can cover them with make-up. You can also hide your eyes under sunglasses.

How long does the result of an eyelid lift last?

The removed skin does not grow back. It usually takes seven to ten years before the excess skin is as large as it was before the operation. This depends on your personal circumstances and skin type.


Why is it so important that your surgeon has many years of experience in eyelid lifting?

Eyelid lifting is one of the most common and most rewarding procedures in plastic surgery – if it is performed correctly. Therefore, choosing an experienced plastic surgeon for this procedure is especially important.

Is the eyelid lift painful and how long does it take?

Almost all patients agree that the operation is pleasant and positive – despite the unfamiliar operating environment and minor pain during the local anaesthetic. It takes about 90 minutes because not only skin is removed, but the skin, muscles, connective tissue and fatty tissue are adjusted and shaped. This must be done extremely precisely and gently, always with magnifying glasses or a microscope. The effort is rewarded with good function of the eyelids, good appearance, perfect anatomy and regained free vision.

What are the risks of eyelid lifting?

Every surgical procedure is associated with certain risks. However, eyelid lift surgery is considered to be relatively low risk. After the operation, slight swelling, bruising or redness may occur, but these disappear after a short time. In rare cases, asymmetries of the eyelids, wound healing disorders or infections may occur. You will receive a detailed and personalised explanation during our consultation.

What costs do you have to expect for an eyelid lift?

Eyelid plastic surgery is offered by different surgeons, is performed in very different ways and the costs vary accordingly. Inexpensive eyelid plastic surgeries are already offered for a few hundred euros, but you should pay attention to quality when having an eyelid lift so that you are satisfied with the result.

The exact costs depend on the type of surgery – whether an upper or lower eyelid lift is performed – and the extent and can therefore only be determined in a personal consultation.
