General information about eyelid tightening

Our eyes reveal whether we are sad or whether we are happy. You can also see in your eyes whether you are tired or alert. The eyes often reflect our mind. Therefore, the eye area is very important for our appearance and also our image. For some, the expression of the eyes is also important in business. For example with business people, where you make contact with customers through the eyes and they should gain trust. But a positive expression is also very welcome in your free time. Everyone wants to look young and fresh. So we try to keep a youthful appearance with expensive creams and ointments. As soon as we deal with it, we are in a constant battle against aging.

If growing old cannot be prevented or slowed down in numbers, we would at least like to slow down appearance and protect it from growing old. There are many lifestyles that can have a positive impact on aging. The skin is of course in the foreground. The fight against gravity is also a big issue here. Connective tissue and volume decrease over time, so that gravity leads to the lower eyelids (upper eyelids). The result is droopy eyelids and bags under the eyes.

Drooping eyelid surgery - many people are affected by it

Drooping eyelids can be unilateral or bilateral. The drooping eyelids are perceived by society as tiredness and inattention. Wrongly, and this can be very stressful for those affected. It is often the case that people form the first impression, which unfortunately sometimes remains, based on such subjective criteria. Open eyes, on the other hand, are associated with attention, activity and youthfulness. A beautiful open eye area is also understood as a sign of attractiveness. Many people come to us in Bern and Zurich for an eyelid lift, an upper eyelid lift or a lower eyelid lift, or a combination of both.

About the operation

The eyelid lift is a relatively minor surgical procedure. But this operation is connected with amazing external effects. Most eyelid lifts are performed as an upper eyelid lift. Here again mostly as a bilateral upper eyelid lift.

There is no real alternative to a surgical eyelid lift. During the eyelid lift, "excess tissue" is removed through a small incision, which mostly consists of skin and connective tissue, sometimes also of fatty tissue.

In the extremely rare cases in which the drooping eyelids are so pronounced that the field of vision is restricted, the operation is covered in whole or in part by the health insurance company. The patient has to bear the costs for cosmetic corrections.

Häufig gestellte Fragen zu Augenlidstraffung-Augenlidkorrektur

Bezahlt die Krankenkasse die Augenlidstraffung?


In manchen Fällen von ausgeprägt hängenden Oberlidern, die das Sehvermögen beeinträchtigen, können die Kosten für die Lidkorrektur von der Versicherung übernommen werden. Eine Kostenbeteiligung durch die Krankenkasse bedarf aber einer medizinischen Abklärung. Eine Unterlidstraffung wird nicht von der Krankenkasse übernommen.




Sind die Narben der Lidstraffung sichtbar?


Die Narben werden in die bestehenden Falten gelegt und sind dadurch kaum sichtbar.




Was ist nach der Augenlidstraffung zu beachten?


Sie sollten in der ersten Woche nach der Augenlidkorrektur Ihre Augen nicht mit Cremè oder Salben belasten. Auch Make-up sollte nicht direkt auf die frische Narbe aufgetragen werden. Zum Kaschieren etwaiger Blutergüsse tragen Sie am besten eine dunkle Sonnenbrille.




Welche Nachbehandlung ist erforderlich?


Stellen Sie sich darauf ein, 1 bis 2 Tage lang Ihre Augen mit Coldpacks zu bedecken. So klingen die Schwellungen schneller ab. Die Fäden werden am 7. Tag nach der Augenlidstraffung in der Klinik gezogen.




Welche Ergebnisse können erzielt werden?


Nach der Augenlidstraffung sind die Unterlider im Ruhezustand weitgehend faltenlos, nicht jedoch beim Lächeln. Auch kann die mitunter dunkle und extrem dünne Haut der Unterlider durch den Eingriff nicht aufgehellt oder gefestigt werden. Zurück bleibt eine feine, dünne Linie, die sich an den natürlichen Lidfalten orientiert. Die Oberlider sind nach dem Eingriff deutlich glatter, der Blick wird offener und wacher und die Augen wirken strahlender. Wie sehr tatsächlich gestrafft werden soll, bleibt Ihrer Absprache mit Dr. Shafighi überlassen.
