The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

Recommended For Canthoplasty

Canthoplasty surgery is recommended for patients who have excessive, sagging, or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin. The procedure is also recommended for patients who have puffy pouches of fat in the lower lids that create a tired or aged appearance and have baggy lower eyelids or simply patients who wish to rejuvenate their appearance.

Not Recommended For Canthoplasty

Canthoplasty surgery, also known as lower eye lift surgery, is not recommended for patients suffering from one or more of the following:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Detached retina
  • Overactive thyroid gland

 

Smoking can affect blood vessels; thus, it may reduce the blood flow to your eyes. Therefore, it is also advised that patients do not smoke; they ideally need to quit smoking before the surgery.

Discharge From Hospital

Duration Of Operation

1 to 3 hours

Overview

Canthoplasty surgery, also known as lateral canthoplastyor eyelid lift surgery, is a type of cosmetic procedure usually performed to make the eye bigger and improve the aesthetic appearance of the eye’s region. The definitionof these surgeries that refer to the eyelids may sometimes interfere with one another: epicanthoplastyor medial canthoplastyis another surgical procedure which enlarges the eye horizontally, is performed at the inner corner of the eye, whereas lateral canthoplasty enlarges the outer edge of the eye.

Canthoplasty surgery can correct sagging, drooping, or bagginess of the lower eyelids. Some individuals may be born with drooping lower, but the natural aging process can also cause lower eyelid droopiness – the skin becomes less elastic after a certain age, and small bags begin to develop under the lower eyelids. Exposure to the sun may also cause the lower eyelids to sag. This brings a tired expression to the patients' faces. The primary aim of canthoplasty surgery is to remove all the bags under the eye and to remove the fatigue on the patient's face and to provide a more youthful and fresh expression. This procedureis also known as lower eyelid surgery.

Preparation

Apart from quitting smoking, oral supplements, herbal teas, and blood thinners such as aspirin need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before canthoplasty surgery. Alcohol consumption is prohibited for at least 48 hours before and after the lower eye lift surgery.

How It Is Performed

Canthoplasty surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Surgeons discuss these options with the patient and decide the most appropriate approach according to the patient's condition.

After anesthesia is applied to the patient, the surgeon begins to mark the incision points. The incisions are usually formed in a bend in the corner of the eye so that the scars can be hidden.

A thin plastic shield is used to protect the patient's eyeball. Canthoplasty operation varies from patient to patient but is usually cut by the lower canthal tendon, repositioned, and tightened to obtain a more pleasant appearance. When the procedure is finished, the plastic shield is removed, and the incisions are carefully closed. Bandages are applied to the area that is operated to prevent infection.

Recovery

The canthoplasty surgery recovery period usually lasts around 2 weeks. If normal stitches are used, they will be removed in around a week after the procedure. If soluble sutures are used, they do not need to be removed. Approximately one week after Canthoplasty surgery, patients can return to work and normal activities. Eye drops can be used to keep the eyes moist. Patients will be provided with a special type of gel that can be used to keep the eyes region clean. 

Makeup should be avoided for at least a week after the canthoplasty surgery. Patients can also use cold compresses to help reduce swelling during the canthoplasty recovery time.

Risks

Canthoplasty surgery complications can include: 

  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Damage to deeper structures

Success Rates

Before And After

The procedure’s results are visible immediately. After canthoplasty surgery, patients can enjoy a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. The patient’s eyes will be bigger, and any droopiness or sagginess will be a thing of the past. These results usually continue between 10 and 15 years. Some patients prefer revision surgery to wipe out the effects of aging during or after this time.

Faq

Can Canthoplasty Surgery Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes, canthoplasty surgery can be combined with blepharoplasty surgery and canthopexy surgery. 

What Is the Difference Between Canthopexy, Blepharoplasty, and Canthoplasty Surgery? 
These procedures are very similar, and all three aim to improve the aesthetics of the eye area. The main difference is the technique used in the surgery. Different methods are better suited to different patients, and it depends on the problem they are facing. 

Can Canthoplasty Surgery Help Me Get Rid of The Dark Circles Under My Eyes?
It may be helpful, but only if dark circles appear as a result of drooping eyelids or eyes bags under the eyes. Usually, dark circles under the eyes are caused by pigment problems, and canthoplasty is not a solution.
