The skin in the eye area is fragile and soft, so the changes caused by age become more noticeable in this area over the years.
Cosmetic defects such as wrinkles, loss of skin firmness, "bags" under the eyes, eyelid sagging and the like can be a concern from the age of 25-30.
It is indeed possible to maintain youth and beauty until a certain time with the help of various cosmetics and follow the principles of a healthy lifestyle. Still, there is always a time when a person has a choice - to accept these age changes or perform eye surgery or oculoplastic, also called blepharoplasty, thus significantly improving your appearance and self-confidence.
Ageing is not always the leading cause of visual problems in the eye area. Still, there are also various inherited or lifelong eye health problems that can also require plastic eye surgery.
Oculoplastics is a sub-branch of ophthalmology, including various types of plastic surgery in the eye area for cosmetic and medical reasons.
Oculoplastic surgeries are performed by an ophthalmologist-surgeon who specialises in plastic surgery in the eye area.
Eye plastic surgeries for our patients are performed both for medical indications and when it is considered for the improvement of appearance, namely for cosmetic enhancements. So that slipped eyelids and bags under the eyes do not make a person visually older than their age or look unreasonably tired.
Eyelid plastic surgeries are often performed to prevent sagging eyelids from becoming an obstruction to vision.
Cosmetic problems include all eyelid changes that do not affect human health in general and do not refer to the visual organ's health and functionality.
Changes of a medical nature are those that cause actual visual impairment.
The operation is usually performed under local anaesthesia, and the patient can go home within a few hours. At the patient's request, the operation can also be performed under general anaesthesia, with the attending physician's prior agreement.
Eye surgery in our clinic is performed by a certified eye doctor - surgeon Dr Iveta Mežatuča, who has acquired professional skills and practice in Denmark and Estonia and under the guidance of Michael A. Burnstine (M.D.), the leading eye plastic surgeon in the USA.
