Usually, after the age of 30, signs of aging begin to appear around the eyes. The most obvious changes in the lower eyelid are bags and deepening tear trough. Deterioration of the cheek and lower eyelid relationship and the loss of cheek tissue make the tear trough more visible. These changes make the person look both more tired and older.
Lower eyelid surgery carried out in the operating room environment is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions in the lower eyelid are made under the eyelashes or through the lid. The aim is to fix the existing bags, to rectify the deteriorated cheek and lower eyelid relationship. Lower eyelid surgery can be combined with mid-facelift surgery and / or fat injections, as most of the time, there is sagging and flattening in the mid-face area (cheeks and cheekbones) due to the effect of time.
How long does the surgery take?
Lower eyelid surgery takes an average of 1.5 hours. If it is to be combined with different procedures, the time varies accordingly.
Is the surgery permanent?
Since the gravity effect and aging will continue, of course, there will be changes in the postoperative years, but it will never return to its pre-operated state. Although repeating the surgery is not always required, supplements may be needed by fat injection to the cheek areas.
