plastic eye procedures have different types which are explained below:

Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty is the most common plastic eye procedure that can be performed on the upper or lower lid to reshape and remove excess skin, muscle, and fat deposits.

Skin resurfacing with laser or chemical peels (Azelaic acid, resorcinol, salicylic acid, lactic acid, hyaluronic acid, citric acid, and phytic acid) to encourage new collagen formation, reduce blurring and discoloration of the area around eyes, nourish and rejuvenate skin.

Another gentle and popular method is filler (hyaluronic acid) injection that lifts eyes, reduces lines, and rejuvenate by filling the dimples around the eyes. Also, Some physicians utilize Botox along with gel injections to accelerate and refine the rejuvenation process. Although Botox alone can lift the eyes and eliminate wrinkles, it is better to perform both repeatedly.

Eyelift with a plexor device is another non-surgical method, which is done with plasma. In this method, the layers of the skin are turned into gas using plasma, and this causes the skin to shrink. For eye lift with a plexor device, no incision is made on the skin surface. Only the fats and extra layers of the skin are heated and turned into gas. also, the increase in temperature expands collagen production. The results usually last up to 5 years.

Temple lift which is a subset of eye lifting is performed with and without endoscopic methods. Today, the endoscopic lift method employs new endothelin instruments. In the temple eye lift technic, only the corners of the eye can be slightly stretched and the position of the eyes can be changed (cat or fox eyes).

Liposuction of fat from the buttocks, thighs, or calves and injections along the eyes and eyebrows can also be performed to fill the eye socket.

Moreover, eyebrows and eyes can be lifted by a doctor with special and barbed threads and inserting them with a needle under the skin. These threads are absorbed after a while so Botox and gel should be executed from time to time.

Non-surgical technics can last from a few months to a year, depending on the method used. Botox lasts between 3 to 6 months. Gel injection lasts according to the type of brand about 9 months to a year.

In the surgical method, the results are almost permanent and the condition is maintained for a long time. However, in none of the manners, the aging process can be stopped.

Before eye cosmetic procedures (Candidates, What to Ask, Age Limitations) 

Before eye and eyebrow lifting, you should consult with your cosmetologist about your past medical history. The surgeon examines your face and eyes before the operation and takes a picture from your face to complete the medication. Some diseases, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, and the use of certain anti-inflammatory drugs and supplements have been shown to have effects on wound healing and lift complications. Also, you should avoid smoking before it. apparently, Smoking reduces blood flow, which slows down the healing process.

In addition, it’s important to have realistic expectations. Eye plastic procedures are not miracle cures thus People who expect more dramatic results may not be good candidates for cosmetic services.

When you see your doctor for a preoperative visit, please do not forget to share all your expectations with your doctor. This will make the result more satisfactory.

There are no age limits for this kind of operation, though most physicians will not perform a cosmetic procedure on individuals under 18 years old. The eligibility of older patients is based on general health

After eye cosmetic procedures (Postoperative Care, Recovery Period)

Non-surgical procedures do not require postoperative care. Only by refraining from rubbing the eye area, consuming more water, and not lowering the head in the early days then you can do your daily activities after operation.

The surgical eye method requires more care. you must bring someone with you to the clinic. Because you do not have good vision until one day after the operation. Note that eyelift surgery does not require hospitalization, but you should rest at home for one day. In addition, you should limit your activities so as not to put pressure on your eyes. An ice pack can be used to reduce swelling. Your doctor will usually prescribe artificial tear drops because of the possibility of dry eyes. If dry eye lasts for more than two weeks, you should consult with your doctor. Aspirin should not be used during this time because of the risk of bleeding. Doctors possibly will not allow you to drive for a while after the operation. Additionally, your recovery period lasts between 10 and 14 days, during this time you better stay at home. Another tip Your physician may suggest is laser peeling surgery after an eye lift.

In the thread lift method, complications such as redness, swelling, and burning in the suture area are normal. Be sure to tell your doctor if you notice any symptoms such as bleeding or infection.
