The sagging of the eyelids is part of the natural aging process and in such situations we will be seen tired and older than we are. After the operation our face acquires a more youthful and vital appearance.
The surgical methods of an Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid correction is performed under local anesthesia. After the anesthesia the incision will be designed for both of the eyelids and the surgery has commonly performed with the removal of skin, muscle and fatty tissue on the upper eyelids. Depending on the situation, the incision can be made exactly in the natural crease of the eyelid so that the resulting scar remains natural.
The sunken eyebrows cannot be lifted by an upper eyelid lift. Therefore, in some cases it is advisable to raise the eyebrows and forehead with a facelift in the upper facial area and eyebrow lift. Your doctor will inform you about possible operations during a detailed examination.
The correction of the lower eyelids, so-called tear bags, is also performed under local anesthesia or sedation. The lower eyelids are actually made of fatty tissue that bulges more with increasing age and affects a youthful visage. A barely visible cut is made just below the lashes of the under lid, to remove the excess skin, bulging fat and muscle and restore an original youthful position. If there are sufficient excess skin folds, a small strip of the eyelid is surgically removed. After wound closure there remains a fine, thin line that follows the natural skin folds. Sometimes the dark circles under the eyes and extremely thin skin on the lower eyelids can be filled with body own fat through the procedure. Here, too, an additional facelift in the middle area of the face is possible if the muscle bands of the lower lid are already heavily relaxed.
Crow’s feet wrinkles cannot be removed with eyelid surgery. Your doctor may recommend additional BOTOX treatment to eliminate crow’s feet wrinkles.
After the procedure, the swelling of the eyelids is tempered with the applications of moist compresses and ice packs. Suture can be removed 7-10 days later. It often leads to swelling and bruising, and irritation of the conjunctiva and cornea that are already after 2-3 weeks hardly recognizable. Very rarely, infection and inflammation are observed. The scar will fade and become invisible over time with the prescribed creams and scar gels.
