With age progression and the effect of gravity, skin loosening, excess, and sagging in the eyebrows can be seen. This situation causes the aesthetic appearance disorder and the upper eyelids in the flaccid state of the eye with the front of the eye can prevent the person to see. Excessive skin is taken by aesthetic eyelid surgery and the membrane in front of herniated fat tissue is strengthened and - or excess fat mass is taken. Thus, a beautiful view is obtained and the person can be comfortable to see. In the upper eyelid, the scar in the lid fold remains and can only be seen when the eye is very close. If there is a scar on the lower cover just below the eyelashes, the continuation of the rest looks like a normal skin line. Eyelids are the most possible areas of the human body to be scarred. Generally over 30 years of age, on upper and lower eyelids sagging and bagging began to occur, people without any other health problems can be done. The operation is performed under hospital conditions, under the supervision of the anesthesiologist and in the operating room. Local anesthesia and intravenous sedation are preferred.
