ABOUT CANTHOPLASTY IN TURKEY

.
CANTHOPLASTY AND CANTHOPEXY ARE THE COSMETIC SURGERIES DESIGNED TO CORRECT DROOPING, SAGGING, BAGGY LOWER EYELIDS. THESE PROCEDURES CAN ADDRESS SAGGING SKIN AND BAGS UNDER THE EYES THAT MAY RESULT FROM AGING, SUN EXPOSURE, OR EVEN GENETIC FACTORS. CANTHOPLASTY TYPICALLY INVOLVES THE REMOVAL OF FAT TISSUE AND EXCESS SKIN UNDER THE EYES TO REJUVENATE THE LOWER EYELID AREA. CANTHOPLASTY MAY ALSO BE PERFORMED ON THE UPPER EYELIDS IN SOME CASES TO ACHIEVE DESIRED AESTHETIC OUTCOMES.

CANTHOPLASTY PROCEDURE

For canthoplasty lower eyelid surgery in Turkey hospitals usually takes from 1-2 hours. The surgery can take longer if other surgeries are done together with Canthopexy. Usually Canthoplasty is done using local anesthetic and sedation so the patient is awake but doesn’t feel anything. Before the surgery begins a plastic clear shield will be put to cover the eye throughout the surgery. The surgery will start by the surgeon making marks on the upper eyelid where the incisions will be made. Incisions around 1 cm will be made on the upper eyelid following the natural folds of the area. Once the surgeon gets to the canthal tendon he / she will tighten it and fix it to the membrane that covers the orbital rim (periosteum). If there is too much excess skin or fat on the lower eyelid, the surgeon will remove them and then close the incisions with sutures. Once the surgery ends the shield will be removed from the eye and a dressing will be applied to protect the wounds.
