A keen, open look conveys self-confidence and attractiveness. It facilitates communication with our conversation partners and makes us appear vital and healthy.
Progressive age, stress and lack of sleep particularly affect the delicate skin around our eyes. The result: accumulation of fluid in the eyelid tissue – so-called eye bags. This is remedied by the lower eyelid correction, in which the disruptive tissue under the eyes is completely removed. A small intervention that makes the eyes shine again.
In the Praxis Contour, you benefit from extensive advice, tailored treatment and the first-class expertise of our specialist, Dr. med. Thomas Feldhaus. With his many years of experience in aesthetic and plastic surgery and the latest technology, we enable you to achieve the best result of the lower eyelid surgery – in Frankfurt or in Fulda, in one of our practices.
Having unwanted eye bags removed is a great relief for many people. Both women and men benefit equally from the procedure and report more quality of life and increased self-esteem after the operation.
With the lower eyelid lift, also called lower eyelid correction, hanging lower eyelids or eye bags are corrected. With the help of an outpatient surgical procedure, the eyelid edges and eye bags are stabilized, excess skin and fat tissue are removed.
By correcting the lower eyelid, the transition between the eye and cheeks appears softer overall. The result is a more alert, fresher expression and a more youthful look.
Eye bags can occur in any person and at any age. The most common causes are stress, lack of sleep, allergies and alcohol and cigarette consumption. But genetics also play an important role in the development, so that some people are affected by it at a young age. In all of these cases, eyelid surgery is an effective way to remove unwanted eye bags.
In the event that the eye bags mentioned suddenly appear for no reason, you should contact a doctor. This can rule out a possible risk. In rare cases, eye bags surgery should be avoided for medical reasons.
At the beginning of the lower eyelid surgery, the incision line that is placed close to the lash line is drawn. The experienced specialist performs the cut so that visible scars are avoided. Subsequently, the patient receives local anesthesia and is put to sleep or anesthetic as required.
With the eyelid lift on the lower eyelid, excess skin and excess fatty tissue under the eye are removed with the help of a small incision and the muscle tissue is tightened. The eye sacs are also strengthened during eye bags surgery, so that unwanted bulges effectively disappear.
Finally, the entire lower eyelid is glued with a stabilizing plaster. In this way, swelling is kept as low as possible.
In our practices in Fulda and Frankfurt, we fulfill your individual wishes with the greatest care. Thanks to intensive advice and the highest medical standards, we enable our patients to achieve the desired result without unnecessary risk. Our specialist Dr. med. Thomas Feldhaus has been working in aesthetic and plastic surgery for over 30 years and combines his medical expertise with a special feeling for aesthetics.
Your satisfaction is our highest priority. That is why we take our time – for you and your very personal concerns. Before each operation in the Praxis Contour, we receive our patients in a personal consultation. Here we offer you the space to ask questions, discuss the expected result, plan the exact course of treatment and clarify possible risks.
In the Praxis Contour, the lower eyelid surgery in Fulda or Frankfurt usually takes place on an outpatient basis. Depending on the extent of the treatment, the operation is carried out under local anesthesia and with anesthesiological assistance and takes approximately one to one and a half hours. Of course, the operation can also be performed under general anesthesia. On request, we would be happy to combine several procedures, such as lifting the eyelids of both eyelids and removing the eye bag.
Immediately after eyelid surgery you should cool your eyes consistently – so-called cooling glasses are suitable for this, which you can put on easily and comfortably. This prevents the appearance of severe swelling and minimizes discoloration. The threads are usually removed during the first follow-up examination, i.e. after about five days.
The application of makeup, creams or soap should be avoided in the first week after the eyelid surgery. For now, you should replace contact lenses with glasses. Depending on the course of the swelling and the discoloration of the eye, you are socially acceptable again after about one to two weeks. Sports activities can be resumed after just three weeks.
