Drooping of the upper eyelids affects both men and women sooner or later. This drooping is caused by the connective tissue becoming slacker due to ageing. The connective tissue produces less collagen and elastin: generally, this is a genetic predisposition and becomes increasingly pronounced as the years go on. In addition to natural skin ageing, however, many other lifestyle factors play a significant role. Stress, alcohol, smoking and excessive exposure to direct sunlight all cause the skin to age.

Excess tissue around the eye is corrected using the very latest surgical method, a biolitec® high-performance LEONARDO® diode laser. Not only is the doctor able to work more safely but the patient also gets a more attractive result.
