Factors such as exposure to sunlight, air pollution, irregular sleep, excessive smoking and alcohol use accelerate the aging process of the skin. The upper or lower eyelids that are affected by these processes gain the desired appearance with blepharoplasty surgery.
What is blepharoplasty?
Eyelid aesthetics, or blepharoplasty with its medical name, is an application applied to the lower and upper eyelids, where the tissues around the eyes are stretched, sagging skin and excess muscle tissue are removed. Blepharoplasty is performed by aesthetic and plastic surgeons.
HOW IS EYELID AESTHETIC MADE?
İnsan cildi elastik bir yapıya sahiptir fakat yaş aldıkça elastikiyeti kademeli olarak azalır. Yüz cildinde ortaya çıkan elastikiyet kaybı sonucunda deri fazlalığı ilk olarak göz kapaklarında oluşur. Bu yüzden yaş belirtileri ilk göz kapaklarında görülmeye başlar. Bu belirtiler kişide yorgun, donuk ve olduğundan yaşlı bir görünüme neden olur.
Alt ve üst göz kapaklarında yaşla beraber görülen bazı değişimler:
- Under-eye bags and discoloration
- drooping upper eyelid
- Wrinkles and sagging of the eyelid skin
- Crow’s feet lines around the eyes
- tired facial expression
Upper eyelid aesthetics or droopy eyelid surgery, in short, is the removal of excess skin and muscle tissue in the area.
By making an incision from the eyelid fold line, it is ensured that the surgical scar is not visible. When applied together with forehead lift and eyebrow lift operations, the result will be much more aesthetic.
In case of lower eyelid problems such as under-eye bags and under-eye wrinkles, lower eyelid aesthetics, that is, lower blepharoplasty, is performed. The under-eye lid is corrected through the incision made 1.5 mm below the eyelashes. Depending on the type of deformation, the fat bags are taken out, the herniation points are tightened, the skin in front of the bagging is tightened, or the tissues in the area where the bags are formed are distributed towards the upper part of the cheek. The incision is stitched from the lash line area, so there is no surgical scar.
HOW LONG DOES THE EYELID AESTHETIC SURGERY TAKE?
The upper eyelid procedure takes an average of 30 minutes.
Eyelids are anatomically more complex than other aesthetic and functional parts of the face, so the operation requires meticulous planning and surgical technique.
The surgical procedure on the lower eyelids takes an average of 1-1.5 hours, the most important factor affecting this period is whether any other facial procedures will be performed in addition to the eyelid.
