Eyelid aesthetics is a surgical procedure applied to remove eyelid and under-eye deformities due to aging or genetic origin. Over time, fine lines and drooping eyelids, low eyebrows, under-eye bags and wrinkles appear in the eye, which make the person look tired, unhappy and old. Age-related sagging of the eyelids can also cause vision problems.
Upper eyelid aesthetics begins with the surgeon taking measurements and drawing. In the preliminary drawing, it is important that the incision surface is in the fold of the eyelid, so that the scars are not noticed after the procedure. Excess skin and muscle tissue on the eyelid are removed with small incisions and the area is closed with a few stitches.
Stitches are usually removed on the 8th day after the procedure. In lower eyelid aesthetics, incisions are made just below the eyelashes. With aging, the fatty tissue in the cheekbones begins to sag under the skin with the effect of gravity. This is the reason for under-eye sunkenness. The aim is to treat these thefts with lower eyelid aesthetics.
The eyelid is lifted with small incisions under the eyelashes and the fat tissue in this area is transferred to the recessed area. Excess muscle tissue and, if any, excess skin in this area is removed. According to demand and need, upper eyelid aesthetics and lower eyelid aesthetics can be performed together.
Both operations are performed under local anesthesia. The purpose of the operations is to obtain a more aesthetic, younger and more beautiful appearance and to eliminate vision problems.
If the procedure is professionally performed by an experienced doctor in the right clinic, the post-procedure phase is usually uncomplicated. If the procedure is done with self-melting stitches, it will dissolve on its own in an average of 8-10 days. If the stitches are not untied, they are removed at the end of this period. After the operation, the patient is discharged within a few hours. For the first two days, it is recommended to apply ice compresses for about 15 minutes every hour, except during sleep hours. And it is recommended to sleep on a raised pillow for several days. During the first two days after the procedure, you should not carry heavy loads and bend frequently. After 48 hours, the patient can return to his normal daily life. As with every aesthetic procedure, there may be slight swelling and bruises. These are easily treated with ice compresses.
The permanence of eyelid aesthetics is an average of 1 year. However, the skin may lose its firmness as a result of aging and may need to be operated again with the effect of gravity in the following years.
The eyelid lift process on the upper eyelid takes an average of one hour, if the lower eyelid surgery is performed at the same time, this time is 2.5 hours.
Eyelid surgery is usually performed between the ages of 30 and 40. However, there is no age limit for the operation. Genetic or accidental deformities can be performed at any age, as long as the person's health allows for surgery.
It can be said that eyelid surgery is one of the simpler procedures compared to other aesthetic surgeries. However, every operation is associated with risks. For this reason, it is important that the surgery is performed in a sterile hospital environment and by a competent surgeon. In this case, the risk is low. Since the eyes cannot be closed completely due to edema after eyelid surgery, dryness may be felt in the eyes. This is the usual procedure, not a risk associated with the operation. With the reduction of edema, the eyes can be closed completely and the problem of dryness disappears.
