Both the genetical and the age-related changes can be corrected easily. One of the most common surgeries is the upper eyelid surgery.
This problem appears for many patients in their thirties, for others, in their fifties or sixties. Luckily, all deviations, be it from genetic or age related causes, can be well corrected. The upper eyelid surgery is one of the most common surgeries, usually performed in local anesthesia, often together with the removal of the fat that constricts the eye’s inner corner.
The procedure takes around 40 to 50 minutes, and after a short, approximately thirty minute rest and icing, the patient returns home, or continues on with non-strenuous daily tasks. For one week, a thin, skin-colored bandage is placed upon the scar, which is removed later, together with the stitches. Due to ample blood supply and the direction of the incision, the scar will be almost completely gone in a few months. The eye’s fatigue dissipates, the visage is once again refreshed, make-up can be used on the upper eyelid again, no need to increase the eye’s vision by lifting the forehead during nighttime driving; but we could go on and on about the many advantages.
Many people have reservations regarding surgeries around the eyes, so we would like to clear up a few misunderstandings. The eye is closed during almost the entire procedure. We perform the markings before the surgery with the patient standing, and we adhere to these markings rigorously, so as to avoid excess excision. We fashion the direction of the incision according to the surplus, thus an appropriate amount of excess skin is removed every time.
