A couple things work together to make eyelid surgery very attractive to both women and men. First, the eye area has some of the thinnest skin on the entire human body, making it more prone to the sagging and loosening that affects all of our skin as we age. Second, the eyes are the focal point of the face. Most people say that their first point of contact when meeting another person for the first time is the eyes. When our eyelids are droopy, sagging, puffy, and wrinkled, we want to turn back the clock.
That’s what eyelid surgery with Dr. Aydin will do.
Eyelid surgery, clinically known as blepharoplasty, removes excess skin and fat, and tightens the underlying muscles as needed to return a younger, more rested look to the eyes. And since the eyes are the focal point of the entire face, eyelid surgery has real impact on your appearance.
Year in and year out, blepharoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries because its results are dramatic, yet as the same time subtle. Most people have no idea that you had eyelid surgery, only that your face somehow seems younger and refreshed.
How do I know if eyelid surgery is right for me?
Eyelid surgery is popular with both women and men because drooping eyelids, wrinkles, and puffy bags make a person look much older. More and more men are opting to have the procedure to compete with younger counterparts in the workplace.
Good candidates for blepharoplasty still have good tone in their facial muscles and tissue. Most eye diseases preclude eyelid surgery, at least until they are first addressed.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or both at the same time. Because of this, surgery can run anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours.
The surgery is delicate and involves small incisions. In upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Aydin makes a small incision in the natural crease of the eyelid. This conceals any scarring. He then tightens the muscle tissue, repositions the fat, and removes excess skin. Dr. Aydin is particularly attentive to fat in the eye area to avoid giving the patient a hollowed out look.
For the lower eyelid, the incision is usually made just below the lower eyelash. Excess skin is removed to lessen wrinkles, bags, and general puffiness in this area. As an alternative, the incision can be made inside the lower eyelid to further minimize scarring.
One of the great things about blepharoplasty is the fast recovery from surgery. After the procedure, your eyelids will likely be covered with light gauze. You will be given an eye lubricant and cold compress. Bruising and swelling is minor, particularly if you are diligent with the compress. After a week, stitches are removed and your eyelids generally will look normal, only younger!
