What is Asymmetric Eyelid?

Asymmetrical eyelids, which have a rare appearance rate, refers to the condition that occurs when there is a significant difference between the size, shape or height of both eyelids. This condition may be congenital or may occur during the aging process or as a result of other factors. At the same time, asymmetrical eyelids can affect visual functions as well as aesthetic concerns. For example, if one eyelid is lower than the other, it can restrict the visual field or make it difficult to blink. For this reason, asymmetrical eyelid operations are usually performed with personalized planning and counseling.

Why Does Eyelid Asymmetry Occur?

There are certain factors in the formation of eyelid asymmetry. These factors occur due to environmental or hereditary reasons. If we need to examine these reasons in detail, they are as follows;

  1. Congenital Anomalies: Some people may be born with congenital eyelid asymmetries. This is mainly due to genetic factors and anomalies during embryonic development.
  2. Aging: The aging factor, which is one of the biggest causes of eyelid asymmetry, occurs as a result of the loss of elasticity of the skin, decreased muscle tone and sagging of the tissues around the eyes due to the effect of gravity. This can lead to sagging and bagging of the eyelids, which can trigger asymmetry.
  3. Trauma or Injury: Impacts or injuries to the eye area can cause damage to the eyelid muscles or tissues. This can lead to asymmetry of the eyelids.
  4. Surgical Interventions: Previous eyelid surgeries or other surgical interventions on the face can lead to undesirable results and create asymmetry in the eyelids.
  5. Muscle and Nerve Problems: Dysfunctions of the eyelid muscles and nerves can lead to eyelid asymmetry. For example, conditions such as ptosis (droopy eyelid) can occur due to nerve or muscle problems.
  6. Infections and Inflammations: Infections and inflammation around the eyes can cause swelling and deformities of the eyelid, which can lead to temporary or permanent asymmetry.
  7. Tumors and Masses: Benign or malignant tumors that develop on or around the eyelid can affect the eyelid tissue and cause asymmetry.

How to Correct Eyelid Asymmetry?

There are many procedures for the correction of eyelid asymmetry. These procedures are determined in line with the needs and wishes of the job. These procedures are divided into four in themselves. These are; Asymmetric Eyebrow Lift, Golden Eyelid Aesthetics, Ptosis Surgery and Laser Treatments and Skin Tightening Methods. To examine these methods in detail;

  • Asymmetric Brow Lift

Asymmetric brow lift is an aesthetic procedure performed when there is a marked difference in the shape of the eyes or eyebrows on either side of the face. This procedure is performed to restore symmetry of the eyebrows and eyes, balance facial expression and improve aesthetic appearance. For more detailed information, you can check our asymmetric brow lift page.

  • Golden Eyelid Aesthetics

Gold eyelid aesthetics is an aesthetic procedure using gold threads or gold-plated materials in addition to traditional eyelid aesthetic procedures. This technique aims to make the eyelids look younger, firmer and smoother by utilizing the antioxidant properties of gold and its effect of increasing collagen production. If you want to have more detailed information on this subject, you can visit our golden eyelid aesthetics page.

  • Ptosis Surgery

People with droopy eyelids (ptosis) undergo surgical interventions to lift the upper eyelid by strengthening or shortening the muscles. This procedure corrects the symmetry of the eyelid and widens the visual field.

  • Laser Treatments and Skin Tightening Methods: 

Laser treatments and radiofrequency methods can be used to tighten and increase the elasticity of the skin around the eyes. These treatments are used to correct slight asymmetries in the eye area.

What to Consider After Correction of Eye Asymmetry

Many points need to be considered after eye asymmetry surgery. This way, you can get the look you want from the procedure. At this point, the things you should pay attention to in eye asymmetry procedures are as follows;

  • Take into account the warnings and recommendations given by your doctor after surgery.
  • Take advantage of the power of medicines to minimize post-operative risks. This way, you will use the right medication at the right time.
  • For several days, apply cold compresses at regular intervals to reduce swelling and bruising
  • Keeping your head elevated while sleeping helps reduce swelling. You can use extra pillows to keep your head elevated.
  • Avoid rubbing your eyes and hard blows, and wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from direct sunlight.

Is It Common to Have Asymmetrical Eyelids?

Having asymmetrical eyelids is quite common and many people may experience this condition at some point in their lives. Common causes include congenital genetic factors, the aging process, trauma or injury, surgery, muscle and nerve problems, infections and tumors. These procedures can cause the skin to lose elasticity and muscle tone, helping the asymmetrical appearance of the eyelids to disappear.

Eyelid Asymmetry Surgery Cost

Turkey, which is in a favorable position for the correction of asymmetrical eyelids, is also very advantageous in eye asymmetry. The main reason for this is that there is excessive competition in eye asymmetry surgeries. In addition, another reason why eye asymmetry costs are affordable is that Turkey is more favorable in terms of exchange rate and the Ministry of Health provides great support to aesthetic centers.

When we compare the cost of asymmetric eyelid surgery in Istanbul with the cost in other cities, we can conclude that Istanbul is more affordable. The main reason for this is that there is more competition in Istanbul. For this reason, you can experience a more comfortable process by choosing aesthetic centers in Istanbul.
