As age progresses, sagging of the skin, bags on the eyelids, color changes, relaxation, swelling and wrinkles occur. The drooping of the upper eyelid, which is caused by the abundance of skin encountered on the eyelids, can reach the point where it prevents vision. It can be seen at any age, but its incidence increases in older ages. Sagging and loosening around the eyes is a condition that can be faced by both men and women.
Low eyelids also cause health problems.
A droopy eyelid causes a tired, old and dull appearance in the person. However, it should not be considered only from an aesthetic point of view. Depending on the size of the dimple, there may be increased eye fatigue and a decrease in visual quality. Since droopy eyelids can also pave the way for visual impairment, it can directly reduce the quality of life of the person. Concomitant eyebrow raising reflex can cause increased headaches. In addition, the formation of deep wrinkles on the forehead also increases. Functionally, surgery may be inevitable for treatment in such cases.
Curious about the treatment
In the treatment, only the upper eyelid or only the lower eyelid can be treated, or both can be treated at the same time. In addition, brow lift can be performed in combination with midface surgeries.
One of the issues that patients worry about is “Will there be any permanent scars?” fear comes. To prevent this, the operation is performed by making an incision on the fold line. It can be applied together with forehead stretching or eyebrow lifting procedures, preferably or according to aesthetic needs.
In lower eyelid surgeries, the incision is made just below the eyelashes. Eyelid surgeries are generally not sufficient alone. Therefore, combined procedures give better cosmetic results.
It can be performed under local anesthesia or under general anesthesia in combined surgeries. Separate upper eyelid and lower eyelid procedures take an average of 35-40 minutes. Patients who are operated under local anesthesia can be discharged on the same day.
