Eyelids have aesthetic and functional importance. After the age of 35-40, Sagging of the upper eyelid, bagging under the eyes and wrinkles occur, giving the person a tired, sad and worried look. Sometimes excessive sagging of the upper eyelids may cause difficulty in opening the eyelids. Bagging occurred at the lower eyelids is often hereditary and becomes apparent with the age. The purpose of eyelid aesthetics is to eliminate these deformities and to provide a younger and more dynamic look to the person.
It is not sufficient to carry out aesthetic evaluation of the eyelids alone. It is necessary to carefully evaluate the position of the eyebrows, particularly in the upper eyelid aesthetics. Sometimes sagging of the forehead and eyebrows can cause bagging of skin on the upper eyelid. In such cases, endoscopic forehead lifting and / or eyebrow lift surgery is necessary at the same time to apply the upper eyelid aesthetics. If the eyebrow position is normal, only the bagging of skin and fat herniation, if any, are corrected.
In the lower eyelid aesthetics, it is necessary to make an evaluation by paying attention to the cheek position. If sagging of the cheek tissue is excessive, lower eyelid aesthetics should be performed together with SOOF Lifting. If there is only under-eye bagging, the fat cushions should be embedded in their original locations. Especially degreasing process is not applied. As a result of the operations performed in the form of removal of fat bags, pitting in the eyes and old-tired gaze are prevented by using this method.
This is a very important technical detail. Aesthetic eyelid surgery is generally needed after 35 years of age, surgical risks are low, aesthetic results are satisfactory. It can also be applied at a younger age in people who have irritable bagging of the eyelids due to hereditary reasons.
Eyelid aesthetics can be performed with local or general anesthesia and the average operation time is 1.5-2 hours. There is no uncomfortable pain. The patient may be discharged on the same day. Postoperative edema-swelling and bruising of the eyelids occur and varies from person to person, but it starts to decrease after 2-3 days and disappears completely within 7-10 days. No stitching is required. It takes 3-6 months for the eyelids to take their full shape, but there will be no complaints about the appearance of the person.
Eyelid aesthetics leads to revitalization of glance, improvement of sad and tired facial expression and rejuvenation along with improvement in the person’s psychology and self-confidence.
