Eyelid surgery is one of the surgical procedures applied to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Eyelid procedure can be applied on the lower eyelid, on the upper eyelid, or both. Eyelids may fall over time due to aging or with the influence of gravity. You can have an eyelid procedure and get a younger look to make your eyelids look younger.
Eyelid procedures are performed in highly sterile environments by our experienced doctors. Patients’ demands are taken into consideration before the plastic surgery and our doctors fulfill these demands in the best and successful way.
Factors For Requiring Eyelid Surgery
The eyelid is one of the areas with the thinnest and sensitive skin structure in the human body. The factors that cause eyelid procedures can be listed in three categories:
Genetic Factors: People’s innate predispositions can cause eyelid miscarriages that can be observed directly.
Gravity: Gravity is one of the factors that people can feel their effects throughout their lives. The eyelid, which is constantly in motion, reveals the effect of gravity due to its sensitive and thin structure.
Aging: Aging is one of the natural processes that take place completely physiologically, and the effects that occur during this time may cause sagging of the eyelids. Loosening of the eyelids may also cause eyelid aesthetics.
Who Can Get Eyelid Aesthetics ?
Patients with lower and upper eyelids loosening due to aging and sagging in line with the fat extension can apply for eyelid procedures. Some patients may experience lower eyelid problems in young and middle age. The problems of these patients generally result from genetic factors. Patients with lower eyelids can eliminate these problems with cosmetic procedures. Patients without health problems can safely have eyelid surgery. Before the operation, it will be determined by the doctors that the patients will have any health problems that will pose a risk to the surgery, as a result of examinations.
Eyelid surgery is usually completed within 20-30 minutes for each eyelid. During the operation, small amounts of tissue are removed from the excess skin, the underlying muscle tissue and fat bags. Then these parts are closed one by one. Since enough skin tissue is removed from the upper eyelid, it will be sufficient for life. Eyelid surgeries can be performed under general or local anesthesia.
It must be very sensitive when removing bags and tissues. When the processes are finished, the incision line is not very clear, because it sits on the eyelid fold, and since there are spontaneous lines and folds in this area, the scars are not certain.
While the operation is applied to the lower eyelid, the incisions are made under the lashes. Excess muscle, eyelid fat and enough skin in the area are removed. In the lower eyelid surgery, only 1-2 mm of skin is removed. Removing more skin is inconvenient.
After Eyelid Surgery
After the eyelid operation, very thin bands are used. In this way, you can continue to see your environment easily. There is no such thing as closing the eyes after the operation. Applying an ice compress on the eyes for the first 24 hours after the procedure will help reduce swelling and bruises. It is extremely normal for bruises and puffiness to appear on the eyelids. You should consult your doctors as soon as possible when you encounter serious illnesses.
Since the skin of the eyelid is very loose, swelling occurs. However, the healing time of the eyelid skin is also very short. In the controls to be performed after the operation, the incision lines are cleaned and the bands are renewed.
Bruises and swelling occurring in the eyelids can continue for 1 week. At the end of this period, sutures are removed and patients can continue their daily lives from where they left off. They can also do their makeup. One month after the operation, the eyelids are restored without any surgery, and after 6 months the recovery process is completed.
