The skin, which has lost its elasticity with aging, first shows the symptoms of this loss around the eyes.

Especially low eyelid, in some cases, creates a lot of discomfort, even it can be in a size that prevents people’s vision.

Eyelid surgery includes procedures applied to the lower and upper eyelid. Eyelid aesthetics can be performed to both eyelids or only one at the same time in line with the needs and wishes of the person.


How is eyelid surgery performed?

Upper eyelid aesthetics are performed due to sagging skin in the upper eyelid. It can be  performed by removing excess skin and muscle tissue in the upper eyelid. For a more effective result, most patients  have upper eyelid surgery along with forehead or eyebrow surgery. Since the incisions are made on the fold line of the eyelid, no scars can be seen.

Lower eyelid operation is the intervention of fat pads that cannot withstand gravity as the patient get older. These fat pads on the cheekbones in young people go down with age. In the lower eyelid operation, the fat pads are hung up, that is, where they should be. After this procedure, if needed, some incisions are made under the eyelashes, fat pads are spread over the area and lower eyelid surgery is performed. Finally, excess skin and muscle tissue is removed. Since the incisions are made under the eyelashes, there is no scar in this surgery.
