With the advancement of age and the effect of gravity, skin loosening, excess and sagging occur in the eyebrows, upper and lower eyelids, and there may be bagging, especially in the lower eyelids, with the forward herniation of the fat tissues.
With aesthetic eyelid surgery, excess skin is removed and the membrane in front of the herniated adipose tissue is strengthened and-or the excess fat mass is removed. In this way, both a beautiful appearance is obtained and the person can see comfortably. Eyelids are the least scarring part of the human body.
The operation is performed in hospital conditions, under the supervision of an anesthesiologist and in the operating room. Local anesthesia and intravenous sedation (intravenous sleep) method is preferred. According to the patient's current complaints, only the upper or lower lids or both lower and upper lids can be operated at the same time. The operation takes an average of 1-1.5 hours. It is possible to go home the same day.
Early period after surgery usually passes on at ease. There may be swelling and bruising around the eyes. Dry eyes, burning sensation, blurred vision may occur. Tears may increase, eyes may be disturbed by light for a while. The patient may not be able to close his eyes completely in the first days. These are expected events that occur spontaneously within the first week. Stitches are removed after 3-5 days.
The person can return to work after 3 days. If he is using it, he can wear his contact lenses after 1 week. Since the new shape of the eyelids will be affected due to gravity, it will last for a few years and sometimes for a lifetime, depending on the person's body.
