Don't forget about the eye area for your beauty

What are under-eye bags and droopy eyelids and why do they occur?

Disorders such as droopy eyelids and under-eye bags are associated with eyelid deformities. However, we can intervene in these disorders with oculoplastic surgery. Such disorders begin to appear with years. However, from time to time they can be observed in children, in which case, urgent intervention is required. They can also be seen in people born with weak eye muscles, as well as weakening or scarring of the muscles that allow the eyelids to move upward over time. I can say that nerve damage and diabetes are among the factors that increase the risk of droopy eyelids.

How does a droopy eyelid affect vision?

The upper eyelid must distribute tears evenly when the eyes open and close. If the eyelid covers the eye for more than a certain part, it covers the visual axis. Because with age, the muscles and skin tissue around the eyes sag under the influence of gravity. This causes a herniation of the fatty tissue around the eye and a weakening of the hard structure that holds the fat. These problems can be eliminated with the help of surgical interventions in the eye and the area around the eyes.

At the same time, early diagnosis is very important in this disease, which is also observed in children. Because if not intervened at an early age, there is a risk of developing lazy eye syndrome in the future because the eye will not receive enough light.

Can you tell us about the process after droopy eyelid surgery?

Often one session is sufficient for problems such as droopy eyelids and small under-eye bags. For skin wrinkles around the eyes, systems such as Thermage CPT radio frequency can be used, which is applied for an hour. The effect of this method lasts up to 2 years. If the problem is more serious, we perform blepharoplasty. Patients are discharged on the day of surgery. After it, there is no severe pain.

What will I get as a result of a successful operation?

The operation on the droopy eyelid, in addition to improving visual functions, gives a feeling of relief in terms of appearance. 

Are there any routine methods, etc.?

Today we often do brow lifts and Botox injections for crow's feet. It can be said that this provides an improvement of about 6 months.
