Eyelid lifts can be performed on people aged between 35-75. It can also be performed on people who have genetical factors that can lead to problems with their eyelids from the 20’s onwards. It is necessary to operate on children who were born with eyelid defects before they reach the age of 6.
The upper eyelid is cut along its fold line while the lower eyelid is cut immediately below the eyelashes. Loosness in the upper eyelid’s tissue is removed. Connective and muscle tissues are repaired while excess fat and skin is removed. Once the lower eyelid’s excess fat, muscle and skin is removed, the incisions are stiched together with special stiches in a way which doesn’t leave any visible marking. A light dressing is palced over the stiches.
