What are the Aesthetic Problems and Treatments of the Eyelid?

The eye area is one of the regions that give the signs of aging at the earliest. Therefore, eyelid disorders begin to appear at an early age. Evaluation of the eyelid includes the evaluation of the surrounding areas. Eyelid sagging, bagging, asymmetries and their relationship with eyebrows are evaluated. With eyelid plastic surgeries, these problems can be solved.

Changes in eyelid due to aging:

  • The appearance of eye bags due to herniated fat pads
  • Sagging of the skin of the eyelid
  • Elongation in the lower eyelid
  • Sagging eyelids near the eyebrows
  • Swelling of the cheekbone area

The eyelid is basically divided into two separate parts, the top and bottom. These two regions can be operated separately or simultaneously or together with neighboring regions. The most common problem in the upper eyelid is the eyelid sagging. Eyelid drooping is the second most common problem in ptosis. Wrinkles appear at the forefront with bagging and skin loosening in the lower eyelid.

Eyelid plastic surgeries are extremely satisfying. Rapid recovery is observed in patients. Operation time is short. But to avoid complications, especially in the lower eyelid surgery, rigorous surgery and experienced hands are required. For this reason, contrary to popular belief, eyelid surgeries may be more complicated and difficult operations when not well planned.

Eyelid Plastic Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

The person who will have an eyelid plastic surgery is first subjected to a full examination. When evaluating the eyelids, it is necessary to look at the relationship between the other structures of the face. For a better result when planning eyelid surgery, forehead stretching, eyebrow lifting, middle face lifting or other plastic surgery procedures can be performed. On the upper eyelid, the eyes of the patient are opened and closed with a thin collet, and the skin of the eyelid is marked. Bags and excess skin volume are marked on the lower eyelid.

Eyelid operations can be performed with local anesthesia or sedation, and the average operation time is between 45 minutes and 1 hour.

For upper eyelid plastic surgery, the incision is made through the natural fold line. When the incision reaches the outer edge of the eye, it lies in the lines of wrinkles. Fat, excess skin and muscle tissue in the eyelid previously marked are removed.

Drooping Correction and Treatment of Under Eye Bags

For the lower eyelid plastic surgery, the incision is made 1-2 mm below the eyelash base. Under-eye bags, muscle and excess skin are removed in the marked area. Removing excess bags from the lower eyelid is usually avoided.

Instead, it is a better option to strengthen the septum and prevent some of the fat from spreading to the tear groove to achieve a smoother cheek transition. Because, while excessive fat create a good appearance in the early period, drooping is likely to occur in these areas as the aging process continues. Years later, the lower eyelids may experience serious softening of the tissue.

After Eyelid Surgery

After eyelid surgery, people can go home immediately after the operation, so it is not necessary to stay in the hospital. After surgery, bruising and edema on the eyelids is a normal process.

The ice applied to the eyelids for the first two days significantly reduces swelling. It is recommended to use bruising and puffiness cream at the same time, this will speed up recovery. Pain killers will be sufficient for the pain.

The incision areas on the eyelid are covered with thin strips and dressing is not required until the stitches are removed.

Sutures are removed after an average of 4-5 days. The eyelid is the area with the best wound healing, the scar remains in the hidden places and there is no scar left over time.

Goal of Eyelid Surgery

The main goal of the operation is to eliminate the problems caused by the effects of muscle movements around the eyes on the skin and tissues, undesirable aesthetic appearance and signs of aging.

The main target in blepharoplasty is rejuvenation of the eye area, recovery, and giving a younger appearance. Elimination of problems around the eyes due to low eyelid, under-eye bags or various diseases depends on the type and content of the application.

Eyelid surgery, namely blepharoplasty, is performed for passing or completely aging symptoms such as sagging, pits, bagging and deep lines, for improvement.

Those Treated With Eyelid Blepharoplasty Surgery

Those who have undergone eyelid surgery realize that the symptoms of fatigue and old age are largely removed as well as the improvement in the eye symmetry. Depending on the procedure to be performed in this surgery:

1) Under eye deformations

2) Eyelid deformations

3) Drooping and bagging

4) Asymmetric disorders are eliminated.

In both upper and lower eyelid surgeries, the signs of old age are erased and a young and more dynamic appearance is obtained. During the procedure, additional interventions can be made to the surrounding areas, namely the mid face or upper face areas such as eyebrows, cheeks, forehead.

Who Can Undergo Eyelid Surgery?

Depending on age, time and various factors, surgery for eyelid and under-eye problems that occurred in previous or future age is performed at any desired age. Within the scope of plastic surgeries, operations can be performed at earlier ages in exceptional cases.

We determine the type and technique of the procedure by providing information to the preoperative clients about the risks of eyelid surgery. It can be performed on anyone who wishes, male or female. People with healthy facial skin and tissue, without deformation in the facial muscles, and without eye diseases can undergo blepharoplasty surgery. People who have problems such as glaucoma, retinal detachment, and dry eye syndrome do not undergo these types of surgery.

How is Almond Eye Surgery Made?

In procedures known as almond eye surgery, the process of raising the joints of the upper and lower eyelids is performed. A younger and a more fit appearance is obtained in almond eye surgeries, which are more prominent in advanced ages.

How is Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery Performed?

Image and asymmetrical problems are observed due to sagging in the eyelid and bagging in the lower part. For those who will make changes in both lids, we treat both lids in the same surgery.

At the same time, it is necessary to make both lids in the same shape, symmetry, and the compatibility to provide more comfort. In the examinations before the surgery, the techniques and procedures to be performed are determined. One of the factors that show the successful result of the operation is postoperative care. Because, when qualified care is provided, it preserves its structure for many years.
