What are the Symptoms Related to Aging on the Eyelid?
Our skin has a high mobility and flexible structure in terms of structure. However, various deformations occur in this structure in line with the results of aging in the advancing ages of the person throughout his life. This elastic loss that occurs over time manifests itself as condensation, collection and sagging of the skin as a result of the symptoms of aging. One of the places where this situation is experienced most intensely, usually occurs in the eyelids in the first stage. These changes that occur in the eyelids cause the person to look stagnant, tired and older than their age. At the same time, drooping eyelids, wrinkles on the eyelids, bags under the eyes and color changes, crowbar-like lines on the corners of the eyes, stagnant and tired expression are the symptoms of aging in the eyelids.
What is a Droopy Eyelid?
Eyelid drooping means unconscious or sleepy eyes. The main reason for this is ptosis, that is, the sagging of the upper lid of the eye. Eyelid droop is a condition that occurs with the deterioration of the muscle layer. However, different treatment methods are applied for droopy eyelids that occur due to different reasons.
Eyelid drooping can be congenital as well as can be seen in later stages of life. Although droopy eyelids, which can occur especially in childhood, do not change, they can cause discomfort to the person over time.
Congenital drooping of the eyelids
The droopy eyelid that comes with the birth of the person known as congenital ptosis is due to the fact that the leytor muscle, which provides the lifting of the upper eyelid during the developmental period of the child, does not complete its development sufficiently. As a result, this type of droopy eyelid causes the eye to be lazy, which occurs in the early stages of the patient’s childhood, as it will block the front of the eye. Early diagnosis and action to prevent vision loss is extremely important.
Eyelid droop that occurs in the following periods
The most common cause of droopy eyelids is the loss of elasticity and deformation of the skin due to the aging process of the people. At the same time, it can be seen on the face, especially in traumatic events as a result of blows to the eye, in cases where contact lens use is made for a long time and in people with muscle diseases.

Eyebrow Lifting Surgery
Our expression, which varies from person to person, is realized by our gaze and eye structure, as well as the shape of our eyebrows, which complement our image. While the shape of the eyebrows gives different meanings to the person’s eyes, it also has a great effect on our face having an aesthetic appearance. Although it is a congenital structural feature, eyebrow shape can have different appearances in line with the changes that may occur over time. A low appearance can be observed in the eyebrows as a result of images formed as a result of impacts and injuries, changes in the tissue under the eyebrow itself, and various diseases. Since this low appearance of the eyebrow affects the aesthetic appearance in a negative way, it can isolate the person from the society psychologically and weakening in human relations can be seen over time. At the same time, eyebrow lifting surgery can make a positive contribution to the aesthetic appearance of the person, and it also contributes to visual health with eyebrow lifting operations that need to be corrected. Whether the brow lift method is surgical or non-surgical depends on the method to be used in the treatment phase, the brow structure and the aesthetic decisions.
What Should Be Considered Before the Eyelid Aesthetic Surgery?

Since it increases the bleeding that may occur during the surgery, drugs such as aspirin should not be used at least 15 days before the operation. Smoking and alcohol consumption should be stopped 2-3 weeks before as it will negatively affect the process and delay the healing of postoperative wounds. The patient should also pay attention to their diet and sleep pattern, and they should take a break from herbal medicines for different results that may occur.
After Eyelid Surgery

In addition, the ice application applied to the eyelids for a day or two after the surgery greatly reduces the swelling. Painkillers given under the supervision of a doctor are sufficient for the pain that may occur. The healing process takes place within 10 days at the most. At the end of this period, the sutures are removed and the process is completed. It is one of the most ideal areas in terms of the eyelid healing process. After the operation, the scar will disappear over time and the patient will have an aesthetic appearance.

In line with hereditary features, the intensity of smoking and alcohol use, and the characteristics of the skin structure, the person who has undergone surgery may need eyelid aesthetics once again. In summary, the effect of eyelid surgery can manifest itself for many years, but it is also possible to perform it again at the request of the person in later ages.
