Aesthetic Surgery – Botox
As we grow older, the tone and shape of our eyelids may relax or fall due to gravity. Eyelids or loose eyebrows give a sad or tired expression on the face. Eyelid surgery – Blepharoplasty can provide a more youthful image in our eyes, removing extra skin from the eyelids, fat from the eyebrow, or the portion of the eyelid clamp that has “overflowed” or lower eyelids.
In smokers, the process of healing and nourishing the skin and tissue in general is slower. It is recommend stopping smoking for at least 2 weeks before and 4 weeks after the scheduled surgery.
Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
For the upper eyelids, extra skin and fat is removed through an incision hidden in the natural plexus forming the eyelids when they are open. The surgery is performed with local anesthesia. The incision is then sutured with very thin sutures removed in 5-7 days.
Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
The fat in the lower eyelids can be removed either through a small incision inside the eyelids or through an external incision hidden just beneath the lashes. If there is additional skin in the lower eyelid, then it can be removed at the same time. The surgery is performed with local anesthesia.
The incision is then sutured with very thin sutures removed in 5-7 days.
In young people, as they contract the facial muscles, they cause a group of skin folds. In the process, muscle contraction causes permanent wrinkles (wrinkles) due to the quantitative and qualitative differentiation of skin collagen, which over time becomes deeper and deeper.
Purpose of the treatment
The purpose of the treatment is to weaken the action of the muscles located in the glabella, the forehead and the outside of the eye, where we observe wrinkles more often.
This can be achieved by administering Botulinum Toxin A (Botox®) which is a substance that reduces muscle contraction. In this way, the muscles that cause wrinkles relax without affecting our normal expressions.
