Upper Eyelid Surgery
The upper eyelid aesthetics is applied in cases where the lid on the eye falls on the eye. This procedure with local anesthesia takes approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. At this point, with excess valve skin and excess fat pouches, a portion of the orbicularis muscle is removed if necessary. Although there is a slight scar in the following period, it cannot be noticed by an outsider since the eyelid coincides with the fold. The person discharged on the same day may return to their daily life one day after the operation.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
The steps and duration of application in the Lower Eyelid Surgery are the same as the upper eyelid. Only the under-eyelid is treated. This time, the treated area is the bottom of the eyelashes and the stitches completely disappear within a year thanks to the melted seams.
Recovery after Eyelid Surgery
First of all, it is normal to have bleeding under the band placed on the eyelid after the operation. And during the first two days, bruising and swelling may occur around the procedure site. As a precaution in such cases, application of ice and some anti-bruising creams are recommended to the patient. At the end of five days, the wound status can be checked and the patches can be removed, or treatment may be continued with new patches for a while. During the recovery process, it is important that the patient avoid heavy sports, sauna and make-up.
Postoperative Possible Side Effects
Some side effects may occur after eyelid surgery. These are usually expected and temporary situations. For example, in the first few days, the eyes may not close during sleep, but this will go away with the lowering of the bumps. In addition, a few weeks of tears and blurred vision may be experienced. All of these are temporary effects. Only in rare cases where the bleeding does not stop, a new intervention may be necessary.
