Eyelid surgery; is a procedure performed by plastic surgery specialists for removing excess tissue and muscle and stretching the eye contour due to deformation caused by the loosening and sagging of the upper and lower eyelids. Although it usually occurs with the advancement of age and the effect of gravity, genetic factors are also effective. Environmental factors also cause sagging, loosening, and increased wrinkles in the eyelids. Air pollution, sun rays, irregular sleep, alcohol, and smoking also accelerate skin aging.
The skin has a flexible structure. Especially as it gets older, it also loses its flexibility due to genetic and environmental factors. This loosening first manifests itself in the eyelids. Changes in the eyelids cause a dull, tired expression and an old appearance. The signs of aging seen under and above the eyelids are as follows;
Skin loosening and sagging in the upper eyelid cause a droopy eyelid. Eyelid drooping sometimes reaches a size that prevents vision. In such cases, eye contour surgery is required not only for aesthetic concerns but also functionally. Those who want to have eye surgery for functional or eyelid aesthetics can have lower and upper eyelid surgery as well as lower and upper eyelid surgery separately according to their needs. Eyelid surgeries are generally preferred together with mid-face surgery, eyebrow lift, and forehead lift surgeries.
Eyelid surgery is mostly performed by people after the age of 35. Because the signs of aging are usually seen at these ages. However, apart from aesthetic concerns, it can be done at an earlier age for medical reasons. After eyelid surgery, people get a lively and calm appearance.
To minimize the risk of bleeding during eyelid surgery, aspirin and antibiotic-type drugs should not be used at least 15 days before the surgery. Cigarettes and other tobacco products should also be used 15 days in advance. Herbal-containing products known as therapeutic may also cause an unknown complication, therefore they should not be used.
Upper eyelid surgery; is the removal of muscle and skin tissue in that area. The excess is removed from the fold where the eyelid is folded so that the scar is not visible. When done together with an eyebrow lift and forehead lift, it gives better results in cosmetic terms.
Fat tissues on the cheekbones are exposed to gravity and descend as they age. This causes the laugh lines around the mouth to deepen with the collapse of the lower eyelid. After the adipose tissues are suspended in their place, there may be no need for another procedure on the lower eyelid. After this operation, the lower eyelid is re-evaluated by the physician and the person. It is checked if there is sagging and bagging, if so, lower eyelid surgery is performed. After the incision is made just under the eyelashes, the skin is removed and the fat tissues located here are placed in the under-eye pit, excess muscle and skin are cut out. At the end of the under-eye surgery healing process, if there is still sunken under the eye, under-eye fat injection application may be considered.
