Eyelid Aesthetic

    Generally, complaints about eyelid edema and excess skin and muscle and fat on the eyelids occur for many reasons such as aging, excessive weight loss, smoking and alcohol consumption. The operation is performed with local anesthesia in an average of 30-45 minutes. In the upper eyelid fold, excess skin and muscle are removed, if the patient's upper eyelid inner and outer pads are herniated, the excess fat tissue in that area is removed during the procedure. The patient returns to his social life in a very short time after the operation, heals within 4-5 days, stitches are removed on the 5th day, edema can be observed after the operation, bruising does not occur much. The muscle in the under-eye area of ​​the patient is not removed, only the herniated fat tissue. In necessary cases, if the under-eye fat tissue is not removed during the operation, if there is collapse under the eye, a smoother plump appearance is created by distributing a part of the fat tissue to that area. In the lower eyelid operation, unlike the upper eyelid surgery, as much skin is removed as much as possible, sometimes due to advanced age, in case of excessive laxity between the lower eyelid and eyeball (cantopexy) the lower eyelid bone is taken to a higher level in the bone. It can be performed with an incision under the eyelashes or it can be performed without a scar with an incision completely through the eye. Sutures are not removed after the operation. Edema and bruising may occur after the operation, the recovery period is approximately 1 week.
