Eyelid surgery

The eye area is the main point of the face, which attracts attention and gaze during communication between people.

The eyes and their surrounding area determine the age, but also the mental state of each person.

We would say that they are the mirror of health, while at the same time they affect the overall external image of the individual.

The skin in the eyelid area is very different from the rest of the face.

The main difference is that it has reduced elasticity, which is why we often see beautiful and well-preserved faces with a serious problem in the eyelid area, causing a result that spoils the overall aesthetic image.

Problems in the eye and eyelid area are treated by the plastic surgeon with eyelid surgery, which is a very common operation in both women and men.

Eyelid surgery tackles problems, such as:

  • Loose skin that hangs or even folds on the upper eyelids which can even block vision.
  • Fat deposits on the upper eyelids.
  • Bags under the eyes and dark circles.
  • Hanging lower eyelids which leave the white of the eyes uncovered under the iris. Excess skin on the upper and lower eyelids.
  • Excessive skin with wrinkles on the lower eyelids.
  • Swollen skin on the upper eyelids, which makes them seem tired.
  • Dropped eyebrows and reduction of the distance from the folds of the upper eyelids.
  • Crow’s feet
  • The difference in skin breakdown between the lower eyelid and the cheek.

There are various eyelid surgery techniques that can be applied depending on the severity and specifics of each case.

The plastic surgeon can select and recommend to the patient depending on the problem, the classic method, Laser technology, and even the non-invasive plasma energy sublimation technique.

With eyelid surgery, the plastic surgeon removes the excess skin and fat that often protrudes due to the relaxation of the tissues.

Sometimes he removes only skin, other times skin and fat and other times only fat.

The incisions in eyelid surgery are designed in such a way that after their healing, the scars are hidden in normal anatomical aspects of the eyelid area and are not visible.

In a typical eyelid surgery the incision in the upper eyelid is made in a natural wrinkle while in the lower eyelid it is made just below the lashes.

Eyelid surgery (upper and lower) can be performed either under local anesthesia or under general anesthesia (intoxication, day surgery).

The stay in the clinic is limited to a few hours and return to work takes about a week.

Eyelid surgery is usually performed on people over 35 years of age.

However, it often occurs at younger ages, especially when there are deformities of the eyelids of hereditary etiology.

Many times eyelid surgery can be done in combination with other cosmetic surgeries, such as a face lift, brow lift etc.

The results of eyelid surgery are permanent and last over time.

Eyelid surgery gives the face its lost youth and gives freshness and radiance!

In some patients, eyelid surgery greatly improves vision, as it removes the excess skin of the upper eyelids that can sag and affect peripheral vision.

At Medical Excess, eyelid surgery is an operation of great importance as it takes care of both the aesthetic restoration of the eyelids and their anatomical function.

For the plastic surgeon, Mr. Isidoros Pantazis, eyelid surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries.
