The low eyelid is sometimes a problem that can be unilateral, sometimes bilateral, often congenital, but also confused during development. It can be understood only in a carefu way, but it confronted in forms that extend from very light dminesions to very specific dimensions that wil prevent the viewer from seeing it. Sometimes when the sun starts to show up itself, when the eyelids are in a better state, the eyelid can be accompanied by muscle fatique over time.

There are variety of methods for correcting the low eyelid. When there are congenital casues and a neurological problem together, swallowing difficulty, double vision and some weakness in facial muscles may accompany eyelid laxity. Very rarely, tumors arising from the periphery of the eye can also cause eyelid collapse. Occasionally, the loss of the eyelid may be due to past accidents and related eye trauma.

A detailed examination and a good story are needed to understand what the problem is. After the measurement of the muscles lifting and running the eyelid is done, the operation technique is decided. Aspirin should not be used for 10 days before surgery to prevent bleeding during and after surgery. If the patient has a significant illnesses and medications tat he or she has used in the past, they should be notified to the doctor.

After the blood tests and necessary preparations are made, the muscles that lift the lid with an incision over the lid are uncovered. The surgery is terminated by a series of operations that connect the muscles of the eyebrows need to be attached to the eyelid, then this procedure is performed with the faecal connective tissue to be removed from the eye.

After the operation, ice is applied to the treatment area and edema is tried to be controlled. Antibiotics and painkillers are used. Softening pomades or drips are used to prevent straying and burning. Bruising and swelling usually begin to decrease after the third day. On the threeth or forth day of postoperative period, around the circumference of the eyelids are removed. If there is a cut on the eyebrows, the stitches on the seventh day have a leg incision and if the tissue removed, the stitches are removed after about two weeks. Drowsiness, stinging, burning can be seen in the first weeks.


Rarely, bleeding can occur. These are dimensions that can be corrected with local care.

The infection is uncommon. The possibility of confrontation with infection as a problem is weak with antibiotic use and wound care.

Wound dissociation is extremely rare. However, in the event of a trauma to the surgical site, diabetes, radiotherapy or use of cortisone, antagonism may occur.

Another problem that may arise after surgery is related to the setting of the lid distance. Sometimes 1-2 mm differences can occur. This difference may require a new intervention in very advanced dimensions.

Surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation. Rarely may require general anesthesia.
