Eye plastic procedures

Over time with the lack of skincare, many wrinkles and sagging around the eye may appear, which significantly hide the beauty of the eye. Here comes the role of eye plastic procedures to remove all those impurities that disturb our beauty and affect its luster.

Why may some perform plastic procedures for their eyes?
Among the most famous cases in which people may perform eye plastic procedures are the following:
saggy eyelids.
The spread of wrinkles in an observable way around the eyes.
The presence of fatty bags in or around the eye.
Bulging eyes.
Sunken eyes.
Eyebrows falling out, giving the appearance of an older age.
Dark circles around the eyes.
Aiming to improve vision and general eye appearance, widen the eye, or change the color of the eyes.

What are the types of eye plastic procedures?
Eye plastic techniques are divided into surgical and non-surgical techniques. 

The non-surgical eye plastic techniques include:
1- Botox injection: It is a non-surgical technique used to raise eyebrows and get rid of any sagging above the eye without surgery. The result is removing sagging and getting a youthful appearance to the forehead by weakening the forehead muscles that naturally impede their movement in just 10 minutes. The result lasts from 4 to 6 months or depending on the nature of each case.

2- Filler injection: It is an injection that contains hyaluronic acid in its composition, which fills the eyes and removes any wrinkles that may have occurred due to weight loss, and its results last for about a year.

3- Mesotherapy injection: It is an injection that contains some vitamins and substances that dissolve fat around the eye and get rid of its sagging, or any of the fatty masses that give it a bad appearance.

4- Laser: This is used in eye plastic techniques and removal of birthmarks and skin tags. It also helps to get rid of fatty cysts caused by hypercholesterolemia or diabetes.

Surgical techniques:
People perform surgical techniques in case of failure of the non-surgical solutions to beautify the eyes. One of the most famous eye plastic surgeries is the eyelid lifting process, a process aimed at removing sagging, drooping, and swelling of the upper or lower eyelids, and removing any skin tags that prevent it from closing well or prevent clear vision. It can also help get rid of excess fat that accumulates around them.
