Eyelid surgery is defined as the whole of surgical applications performed by plastic surgery specialists, which are applied to the lower and upper eyelids, aiming to remove sagging skin and excess muscle tissue and stretch the tissues around the eyes. This surgical procedure is performed in order to eliminate the aesthetic disorder in the eyelids.
Should I get eyelid lift or brow lift surgery?
Most people consider an eyelid or brow lift for cosmetic reasons, as there are many benefits.
Eyelid and brow lifts can brighten your eyes and help you look more youthful and alert.
If you’ve been having vision problems and you think your eyelids may be the problem, use your finger to hold your eyelid and eyebrow up. Look around in all directions. If lifting the skin seems to improve your vision, then drooping skin is likely the culprit and eyelid and brow surgeries will help correct it.
What Should Be Considered Before The Surgery?
Aspirin and similar drugs should not be used for a week before the operation due to the risk of increasing bleeding tendency during the operation. Likewise, herbal teas such as green tea and vitamin E have a blood thinning effect.
Therefore, it is beneficial not to consume them for a week before surgery. Likewise, smoking and other tobacco use should be stopped 2-3 weeks before, as it delays wound healing. Apart from these, conditions such as high eye pressure, hypertension, thyroid, dry eye are conditions that increase the risk in eyelid aesthetic surgeries. If you have one of these chronic conditions, you should inform your doctor about this.
Healing Process After Eyelid Aesthetics
Most patients complete the recovery process within 1.5 to 2 weeks. However, full recovery may take several months. As the swelling and bruises disappear after eyelid surgery, the shape of the eyelids emerges. As a result, the face gains a more vigorous and youthful appearance.
During the eyelid aesthetics, lubricating ointment and cold compresses can be applied, and in some cases, your eyes can be loosely covered with a gauze pad after the procedure is completed.
During the healing process, there may be some swelling, bruising, irritation, dry eyes that can be controlled with medication, cold compress and ointment first. Irritation is also possible at the incision area.
You should wear black sunglasses for sun protection while working until the healing process is fully completed.
Apart from these, keeping the head high with a few pillows while resting after the procedure helps to reduce edema. In the first days after the procedure, there may be complaints such as tension, stinging, burning around the eyes. These complaints can be resolved with simple painkillers. After aesthetics, heavy sports, applications that increase edema such as solarium, sauna, sun bath and steam bath should be avoided for 6 weeks.
