Eyelid Surgery For Youthful Look

A youthful, inquisitive look. In some cases, improved vision. Elimination of tear bags under the eyes.

Eyelid surgery is a significantly smaller surgical procedure than facelift, but can often have a significant rejuvenating effect on its own.

The skin of the lower and upper eyelids is very thin and the subcutaneous connective tissue stock contains few connective tissue fibers, so aesthetic complaints can occur relatively early due to various external, environmental influences and the genetically determined process of aging. 

Aging of the skin of the upper and lower eyelids, loss of elasticity, flaccidity of the support system around the eyes, can lead to pronounced wrinkles, swelling around the eyes, which can result in aesthetic and psychological complaints. The skin protrudes, and as the connective tissue weakens, the padding adipose tissue protrudes, as a result of which the upper eyelid becomes flabby, sagging, and often can impede perfect vision. At the lower eyelid and due to striking wrinkles and adipose tissue accumulating behind the protruding skin bags appear.

Upper eyelid plastic surgery

It is recommended to do this if the skin of the upper eyelid is elongated, wrinkled, or possibly disturbing vision beyond the lash line. An incision made in the fold fold of the upper eyelid can be used to remove excess skin and adipose tissue. The resulting hair-thin lined white scar line is almost barely visible after 2-3 weeks.

Lower eyelid plastic surgery

At the lower eyelid, surgery is performed primarily because of the wrinkling of the skin and the appearance of so-called bags. In this case, the surgical incision is made directly below the lower lash line, which, as described above, also heals with a barely noticeable scar.

At the end of the eyelid surgery in Delhi, the wound is closed with one suture per eyelid (because the suture runs inside the wound along the length of the wound line) and with a paper-like wound dressing, which is removed after 4-5 days.

After surgery

The tissues around the eyes are among the loosest tissues in the body, so after surgery, the eyelids swell and bleed. Leakage of pink, blood-stained discharge was detected in the wound line during the first 48 hours. The patient may feel tense, often tearing. Due to the swelling, the closure of the eyes may be temporarily imperfect or in the case of the lower eyelids, a temporary, slight twisting may also occur.

Because of all this, the surgical area should be iced for the first two days. If discharge is also observed, it is advisable to clean the landscape with chamomile. Using eye drops may reduce tearing. It is recommended by plastic surgeon to wear dark glasses for a few days after surgery. A 4-5. After eyelid collection during the day, eyelid washing is allowed. Face painting after surgery for two, eyelash painting for 3 weeks is not recommended.

Surgical scars are barely visible a few weeks after surgery and are virtually invisible after 3-4 months. The final condition of the eyelids is also approx. It develops after 2-3 months, although 90% of the results are visible after a few weeks.

About possible complications

The operation was performed as described above in addition to the complications that occur during all surgeries (bleeding, infection), it rarely has complications. Irritant symptoms (burning, itching, tearing, frequent conjunctival catarrh) if present are usually transient and rarely permanent. However, similar pre-existing complaints may be more pronounced after surgery. It does not affect vision. Repetition of the surgery may become due in 10-15 years.

Pros: Youthful, inquisitive look. In some cases, improved vision. Elimination of tear bags under the eyes.

Relatively small surgical intervention compared to favorable results.

With rare exceptions (thyroid dysfunction, diabetes, high blood pressure, tendency to bleeding, taking anticoagulants), surgery can be performed. It can be performed under local anesthesia, absolutely painless (except for the inconvenience of injecting).
