Ageing is a process that happens seemingly out of nowhere and unfortunately, it’s a perfectly natural process that we have very little control over. For some, the ageing process is more obvious to the eye than it is in others and undergoing particular surgeries to reverse the signs of ageing is a perfectly viable option. For those whose insecurities lie in the skin above and under the eyelid, there are a number of options available to rectify the situation. Baggy skin around the eyes can be unsightly and as a consequence can cause unhappiness in sufferers, which is why many individuals turn to our eyelid surgery in Turkey.
The first signs of ageing is visible in the skin around the eyes and it’s fair to say that if you are considering a surgical procedure, then it should be done the sooner the better – as we age, our skin loses elasticity, causing it to sag and loosen – particularly where the thin skin of the face is concerned. In some cases, this loosening of the skin can cause the upper and lower eyelids to sag, impairing vision and leaving the sufferer feeling both uncomfortable and embarrassed.

Patients that suffer from hooded eyelids would opt for upper eyelid surgery. In this procedure the upper eyelid has excess tissue fat and skin removed, tightening the skin around the eye. This means the eyelid no longer droops over the eye. Other patients might suffer from droopy eyelids under their eyes. Also known as “bags”. They would then opt for lower eyelid surgery. Like the upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery removes tissue and fat. Again this helps tighten the skin around the eyes making them more appealing to the patient.
Some patients may suffer from both issues surrounding the skin of the eye. In this case they would opt for double eyelid surgery. Both upper eyelids and lower eyelids would be corrected in the same procedure. Double-eyelid surgery is popular due to correcting both issues at the same time also saving money for the patient instead of separating the procedures.
