Eyelid Aesthetic

One of the most important aesthetic units of the face are undoubtedly the eyelids and the eye area. With advancing age, sagging, excess skin and fat can be observed due to the loosening of the muscles and support structures in the eyelids. This makes you look old, tired, angry, and unhappy. Sometimes the excess skin on the upper eyelid is so prominent that it can even affect your field of vision. The aesthetics of the eyelids, known medically as blepharoplasty, can be defined as the surgical removal of excess skin and fat in the eyelids.

Göz Kapağı İstatiği

Blepharoplasty is applied mainly to the upper eyelid. The goal is to achieve youthful looks full of life. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is performed under local anesthesia and lasts an average of 1 hour. You can go home immediately after surgery. In surgery, excess skin and fat are removed through an incision in the crease of the upper eyelid. How much and where to remove the fat is the cornerstone of these surgeries. Removing more oil than necessary will result in an undesirable appearance around the eyes.

Another important issue is not to remove more skin than necessary. In this case, your eyes may not close completely, especially at night, and this can lead to discomfort such as dry eyes.

Excellent results can be achieved with careful planning and meticulous surgery. When evaluating for a blepharoplasty, it is necessary to evaluate the eyebrows and upper eyelids together as a single unit. Because sometimes low brows make excess skin look more extreme than it is. In this case, a brow lift is performed first and then a blepharoplasty, if necessary, in the same session.

Lower lid blepharoplasty is performed much less frequently. The reason for this is that the operation is more complicated and the risk of complications is greater than upper lid blepharoplasty, and results can be obtained with other interventions that can be performed on the lower lid. For example, the visibility of bags under the eyes can be reduced with injections of fat in the cheek or light fillers in the lower parts of the tear duct. However, surgical blepharoplasty can be performed in cases where there is an actual increase in fat or excess skin in the lower eyelid. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the amount of excess skin, the excess is removed through incisions made from the inside of the eyelid or from the outside of the lashes 2 mm below.

After eyelid surgery, swelling and bruising may occur around the eyes. Significant swelling and bruising heals after an average of 10 days. However, it takes an average of 2-3 months for the swelling to completely subside and the shape of the eyelid to become fully apparent.
