‘Eyelid-skin is the thinnest, which, with its epidermis of just 0.04 mm, makes it particularly sensitive to environmental impact and body fluids’ balance. The first signs of ageing and excessive skin in the area of the eyelids show up already at the age of thirty,’ states Dr Dainius Daunoravicius.
Sometimes, botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid injections are a sufficient treatment to remove the sagging of eyelids.
Where such injections are not enough, a surgical treatment is required. If this is the case, there is not much to worry about, as eyelid lift surgery is a relatively simple procedure that may help turn back the time by 5 to 10 years; it is also known as the type of surgery leading to the highest degree of patient satisfaction worldwide based on its results: a distinct and clearly visible eyelid lift.
‘The technique of eyelid lift surgery has been perfected to the extent that allows the patients to return to work and enjoy their social life to full just in a week after the surgery,’ says Dr Dainius Daunoravičius.
To achieve the best result possible, the plastic surgeons of Clinicus often combine an eyelid lift surgery with an endoscopic brow lift.
