- It is a surgical procedure performed to remove conditions such as sagging of the upper and lower eyelids, excess skin and formations of fat bags.
- The sagging of the upper eyelids may sometimes be to the extent of narrowing down the field of vision. This is often accompanied by sagging in the eyebrows, resulting in an aesthetically disturbing appearance.
- The main aesthetic problem in the lower eyelids is the streaking of the skin and the formation of small fat bags.
- The purpose of this procedure is to remove excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. If the eyebrows have a pronounced sag, eyebrow lifting through various methods of suspension may be performed along with eyelid surgery.
- The operation of the lower and upper eyelids can be done together or separately according to the needs of the person and the decision to be taken with the physician. Only upper eyelids can be operated on under local anesthesia. General anesthesia may sometimes be required for lower eyelids. Duration of surgery is 45 minutes for only the upper lid, 1 hour for only the lower lid, and 2 hours for both the upper and the lower lids together.
- Since the scars of surgery remain within natural facial lines, they are almost never noticeable in the long term. There may be some swelling and bruising around the eyes in the early postoperative period. All sutures are removed in 3-5 days. Avoiding exertion with respect to the eyes and wearing sunglasses is recommended during the first week. After a week has passed, work and normal activities can be resumed.
