Eyelid aesthetics surgery called blepharoplasty; It is an operation to correct the changes in the eyelids that occur due to aging.
With aging, some changes occur in the eyelids, as in the whole face. With the effect of gravity, the intraocular adipose tissue herniates, so bags occur in the lower and upper eyelids. The eyelid skin loses its elasticity with age, resulting in excess and sagging of the eyelid skin.
Normally, there is a distance of 3-6 mm between the upper lid fold and the eyelashes. This fold divides the upper eyelid into upper 2/3 and lower 1/3. In those with excess skin, this fold may hang up to the starting point of the eyelashes. If this sagging is excessive, visual field disorders can be seen.
This excess skin on the upper eyelid can be removed with upper lid blepharoplasty. In addition to the excess skin, there may also be excesses in the muscle and adipose tissue of the upper eyelid. If there is excess in these tissues, the excess parts of the relevant tissue are removed.
Pathologies similar to the upper eyelid are also seen in the lower eyelid. Excess skin, herniation in the adipose tissue and thickening of the muscle tissue can be seen on the lower eyelid. The reflection of these internal changes of the lower eyelid to the outer appearance is the bagging of the lower eyelid and tear trough deformity.
Only the upper lids or only the lower lids can be operated, as well as 4 lids at the same time. Which lids will be operated should be determined according to the needs of the patient.
The blood pressure of patients with hypertension should be controlled in the preoperative period. Operations of patients with blood pressure fluctuations should be delayed until their blood pressure stabilizes.
The blood thinners of patients using blood thinners should be discontinued 1 week in advance under the supervision of a doctor.
