What is the Blepharoplasty?
The most important structural element that significantly affects the attractiveness and age of the person on our face is the eyelids and the area around the eyes. The area around the eyes is actually shaped by the muscle structure that forms the eyelids. Under-eye bags can form as a sign of aging, and can occur at an earlier age in over-worn people. This is true for the upper eyelids.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for a more youthful appearance
Low upper eyelid may be congenital or acquired later. Often the cause is poor functioning of the eyelid muscles. Ptosis surgery in children can be done early in order to prevent lazy eye or surgery may be recommended in order not to have any problems with their peers in preschool period. The methods of surgery depend on the strength of the eyelid muscle of the patient. The activity of this muscle is very low, especially at birth, and therefore they are treated by hanging on the forehead muscle. Additional surgery can be added to aesthetic eyelid surgery to be performed in case of eyelid lowness due to aging.
Lower eyelid aesthetics, excess skin in the lower eyelid, bulging and swollen oil pads that cause the appearance are considered and tear duct groove is deepened. Instead of removing the skin in the lower eyelid aesthetics, it is aimed to re-hang the middle face, to redistribute according to the anatomy and fill the tear groove instead of removing the herniated fat pads. Lower eyelid aesthetics can be performed under local anesthesia and sedation. The incision site is at the bottom of the lash and is not noticeable as it fits the normal skin fold.
With aging and photo aging, our skin loses its elasticity and moisture.The main reason for this is the reduction of collagen that binds our skin cells together and the resulting loss of flexibility.In addition to this, the amount of hyaluronic acid that gives our skin moisture and vitality is also reduced.Over time, decreasingthe amount of collagen and losing moisture, the skin becomes dull; wrinkles and sags become visible.
