Drooping eyelids

We speak of drooping eyelids when the movable part of the eyelid is covered by hanging skin above the eye and is barely visible or no longer visible at all. Both women and men are affected – in most cases from around the age of 40 or even earlier.

Treat drooping eyelids

Those affected often suffer greatly from drooping eyelids, as they result in a tired or even sad facial expression. But you don’t have to put up with drooping eyelids. Drooping eyelids can be corrected very well surgically.

Our eyebrow lift procedure – the modified subcutaneous brow lift – is particularly gentle. Only small incisions are required, leaving barely visible scars.

Cause of drooping eyelids

How do drooping eyelids actually develop? As is so often the case, genetics is largely responsible for drooping eyelids. But the natural ageing process also plays a role. Due to decreasing collagen and elastin production, our eye area loses elasticity and resilience over time. Last but not least, external factors such as stress, smoking, alcohol and little sleep also have an influence on cell activity and skin condition.
