Eyelid surgery is a surgery that repairs droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle, and fat. Although it does not affect our health, deformities such as drooping eyelids etc. make the person feel bad.
The procedure is performed with local anaesthesia or mild sedatives. The process takes approximately 1-2 hours. Often in eyelid surgeries, It is preferred in combination with treatments such as cheek surgery, neck surgeries and face lift surgery.
After eyelid surgery, very thin stitches are placed at the edges of the eye. There may be bruising and swelling around the eyes for 3 to 5 days. After the operation, you can get back to your normal activities, but you should be prepared to take time off to let your eyelids heal.
