Eyelid aesthetics are surgical procedures that are applied to tighten and lift the sagging eyelid skin and remove the old and tired look in the eyes.
How is upper eyelid aesthetics performed ?
Local anesthesia is applied to numb the area where plastic surgery will be performed on the upper eyelids. Before surgery, pencil marks are drawn by your doctor to determine the exact amount of skin to be removed.
Once the area to be operated on is numb, Op.Dr. Sultan Yalcin will make an incision along the natural fold of your eyelid and remove the excess skin. Sometimes a small amount of muscle and adipose tissue can also be taken. The procedure is completed after the stitches are placed under the fold of the eyelids.
What should be done before upper eyelid aesthetics ?
Since smoking and alcohol have negative effects on the skin, it is recommended to stop using it 3 weeks before the procedure. Also, you should not wear make-up before the surgery.
Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or if you are taking any medications.
