With the advancement of age and the effect of gravity, skin loosening, excess and sagging occur in the eyebrows, upper and lower eyelids, and with this, there may be bagging, especially in the lower eyelids, with the forward herniation of the fat tissues. Although this situation causes an aesthetic appearance disorder, drooping upper eyelids block the front of the eye and may prevent the person from seeing. With aesthetic eyelid surgery, excess skin is removed and the membrane in front of the herniated adipose tissue is strengthened and-or the excess fat mass is removed. Thus, both a beautiful appearance is obtained and the person can see it comfortably. The upper eyelid leaves a scar in the fold of the lid and can only be seen when viewed very closely. On the lower lid, a trace remains just under the eyelashes, the rest of the trace looks like a normal skin line on the side. Eyelids are the least scarring part of the human body.
It can be applied to people over the age of 30, who have started to have sagging and bagging on the upper and lower eyelids, and who do not have any other health problems.
The operation is performed in hospital conditions, under the supervision of an anesthesiologist and in the operating room. Local anesthesia and intravenous sedation (intravenous sleeping) method is preferred. Depending on the patients current complaints, surgery can be performed on only the upper or lower lids, or both lower and upper lids at the same time. The operation takes an average of 1-1.5 hours. Does not require hospitalization.
The early postoperative period is mostly comfortable. There may be swelling and bruising around the eyes. Dry eyes, burning sensation, blurred vision may occur. Tears may increase, eyes may be disturbed by light for a while. The patient may not be able to close his eyes completely in the first days. These are expected events that occur spontaneously within the first week. Stitches are removed after 3-5 days.
