The eyes are the focal point of the face and are one of the most aesthetically important points. The skin of our eyelids has the thinnest skin structure in our body. Therefore, this region is the most susceptible to the development of sagging with aging. With the advancing age, some changes occur around the eyes. While there is sagging and loosening of the skin in the upper eyelids, bagging and wrinkles occur in the lower eyelids. A tired, unhappy, sleepless facial expression appears. As a result of all this, the person looks older than he is. The aim of eyelid aesthetics is to remove the sagging and bagging around the eyes without disturbing the natural appearance and shapes, giving the person a younger appearance.
In the surgical intervention for the upper eyelid, the sagging skin, the muscle tissue under the skin and the herniated fat tissue on the upper eyelid are removed. The incision scar is aligned with the line on the upper eyelid skin, minimizing the remaining scar. Since the upper eyelid skin is very thin, the surgical scar remains very little and often goes unnoticed.
The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. After the surgery, the incision is closed with a tape called a strip. The swelling usually disappears within a week and the patient continues his normal life.
In lower eyelid aesthetics, the incision is made immediately from the bottom of the eyelashes. Thus, the surgical scar is not visible. In lower eyelid surgery, the fat tissue that causes bagging is either removed or rearranged to remove the bagging. While the adipose tissue is rearranged, the depression in the lower part of the lower eyelid is removed. Thus, a younger appearance is obtained.
Lower eyelid aesthetics is performed under either sedation or general anesthesia. The operation time is around 2 hours. The healing process is completed in about 15 days.
