Oculofacial Plastic Surgery

Surgical procedures that enable the eye contour area to look younger and more aesthetic are called oculofacial plastic surgery. The signs of aging begin to appear in the 30s, with under-eye bags and the facial wrinkles that first develop around the eyes. With the effect of the passing time, the tightness of the eyelids decreases, and the fat tissues in the deep layers create pressure outward and cause sags and under-eye bags. Eyelid operations (blepharoplasty) can be performed not only for cosmetic reasons, but also for the treatment of congenital or acquired sagging eyelids, droopy eyelids, or skin tumors on the eyelid.

In this surgical procedure, particularly the upper eyelids and under-eye bags are intervened in. Those who has sagging eyelids, under-eye bags and who suffer from herniated eyelid fat pads, and who complain about looking older than they are due to sagging under-eye skin can benefit from this procedure.

Upper eyelid surgery takes about 20 minutes, whereas an operation that involves interventions in both upper and lower eyelids may take about 1 hour. The patient is discharged the same day after surgery.
