The structures around the eyes are of great importance for the person to look young and calm. The most common complaint of patients with skin sagging in the upper eyelid and / or bagging in the lower eyelid; They always show tired facial expressions and therefore they are constantly exposed to annoying questions by the people around them, such as do you not sleep in the evening or look very tired.
In eyelid aesthetics, sometimes a very limited skin removal is sufficient and changes the gaze quite a lot, in some cases, it may be necessary to combine other surgeries such as eyebrow lifting, mid-facelift surgery, which involves lifting the fat on the cheekbone and the structures located in the middle of the face.
In upper eyelid plastic surgery, sagging skin and excess muscle and fat bags are removed from the eyelid skin.
In lower eyelid aesthetics, excess skin, muscle and fat bags are removed, but if there are pitting as an additional deformity under the bags, fat bags are used to fill the pits in the lower region instead of removing them. Thus, while the bagging just under the eye is removed, the pits under the bagging are also eliminated.
If only the upper eyelid surgery will be performed in the selection of anesthesia, surgery can also be performed under local anesthesia (regional anesthesia). However, if the lower eyelid is involved, general anesthesia should definitely be preferred and lower eyelid surgery should not be performed under local anesthesia.
Patients who have undergone upper eyelid surgery under local anesthesia can be discharged on the same day, but patients who have undergone surgery under general anesthesia should be hospitalized overnight and should be discharged the next day.
From the second day on, the patient can take a bath with special tapes around the eyes. The first control is done on the 5th or 6th day, the stitches are removed and the tape is applied again for 2-3 days. After an average of 7-9 days, the patient gets rid of all dressings.
Eyelid aesthetic surgery performed alone is not operations performed to remove fine lines or darkening around the eyes, and if the patient has such additional complaints before surgery, he should know in advance that he will not be able to get rid of these complaints after surgery
