The skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin of our body. Due to this reason, we often see fine lines in this area, with increasing age over time.
However, with this aging process, under-eye grooves develop as a result of the melting of the subcutaneous adipose tissue as well as its displacement due to the gravitiy. An excessive increase in the amount of skin of the upper eyelid may lead to a skin accumulation to an expent that restrict our vision.
The causes of these changes around the eye are excessive exposure to sun and excessive use of mimics, out of genetics.
The causes of such changes around the eyes include excessive exposure to sunlight and excessive use of the facial expressions, in addition to genetic factors.
Excessive skin and adipose tissue can be removed with blepharoplasty operations, and fat injection can be performed as well.
This operation can give you a fresh look. The most important part of this surgical procedure is to ensure not removing excessive or inadequate of tissues.
The risks in blepharoplasty might be infection, wound healing disorders, and the associated tissue necrosis, in addition to long-lasting swelling and hematoma. It is necessary to inform the patient about possible risks before the surgery.
Eyelid surgeries are performed under local anaesthesia.
After surgey, patients can be kept in the clinic for a few hours, for cooling and follow-up purposes.
During surgery, the eyes are disinfected, the patient is covered with sterilized materials, and then local anesthetics are injected into the lower and upper eyelids. Removal of the skin and muscle layer can be followed by a fat removal of fat injection procedure, depending on the condition. The surgery takes 50 to 60 minutes for each eye.
In the first 24 postoperative hours, the eyelids should be cooled while the patient is in the supine position with the head of the bed elevated to a certain degree. Medications prescribed by the physician should be used, and exercise should be avoided for a periof of 1 week. If there are symptoms such as visual disorder, pain, etc., the physicion should be informed immediately. Make-up can be applied after removal of the sutures. Television can be watched from the 2nd postoperative day.
Facelift operation is a procedure intended for the elimination of the age related sagging of fat and skin on the facial area. Facelift is said to enable you to look five to ten years younger but it is not possible to predict the final result. The extent of recovery to be achieved depends on certain factors such as age, inheritance, bone structure, personal skin characteristics, and habits (alcohol consumption, nutrition and smoking).
It is certainly suggested to have interview with plastic surgeon and get information about the procedure pre-operatively. During this consultation, the surgeon will explain specific details including the surgical technique, anaesthesia, where the operation is to be performed and what to expect realistically from the operation. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can also be performed simultaneously.
Duration of the operation varies according to the procedure to be performed. Nerve injuries, numbness, swelling, pain, discolouration and other complications that might occur during surgery should be explained to the patient.
There is a corset that should be used by the patient and daily massage program to be applied after the surgery. Results can be seen after a period of time as in every surgical procedure.

Prominent Ear deformity is defined as a condition, in which the ear cartilages congenitally stick out from the head at an angle and distance greater than normal.
Usually a non-surgical solution can be achieved with a success rate of 30-60%, within the first 6 months, by means of special bandages.
However, surgery is the only treatment option after age 1. Before surgery, one should definitely consult with a Plastic surgery specialist to get information about the surgical procedure.
Up to a certain age, otoplasty costs are covered by health insurance system in Germany. For this reason, you will have to pay no fee for a surgery to be performed at an early age. However, such an operation at an older age would be considered to be cosmetic surgery.
Otoplasty is performed under local anesthesia but can also be performed under general anesthesia. It is based on reshaping the ear by means of permanent or slowly absorbable suture materials, which are surgically placed in the cartilages. Surgical incisions will not be visible because they will remain behind the ear.
Patients need to use a special bandage for a period up to 12 weeks after surgery. Due to surgery, there may be redness and swelling in the ear, as well as pain that lasts for a certain period of time but responds to painkillers.

The term rhinoplasty refers to a procedure performed to reshape the nose, for the purpose of enhancing its appearance. Rhinoplasty can be done to correct congenital anomalies and post-traumatic deformities as reconstructive purposes, as well as aesthetic reasons.
Moreover, septum deviation operations and concha hypertrophy surgeries can also be performed simultaneously in order to relieve breathing related to intranasal deformations (congenital or posterior).
Nose is the center of the face and therefore determines the facial aesthetic mostly. Nosetip, hump, nasal wings, nose width, length and deviation to left or right can be changed with nasal surgery.
Problems related to breathing can also be corrected by septum deviation and concha correction operations. It is essential to give the most compatible shape to the nose with face and relieve the breathing for an ideal nasal operation. So, the first interviews are very important in this regard.
It is very important to discuss with the patient before the surgery and to provide accurate information about the risks and possible complications. This may require two or more interviews when necessary.
The operation can be performed with 2 main techniques. The technique to be applied is chosen by the doctor according to the patient's need and condition. Detailed information about the both techniques are provided to patient before the operation.
Nasal aesthetics are not performed in patients under 18 years of age (except for some exceptions). Nasal aesthetics are performed by doctors, specialized in plastic surgery and otorhinolaryngology (ENT).
Dr. Satir worked in some cases with ENT surgeons together.
After the nose surgery, patients need to use splint, which remains 2-3 days depending on the situation, and gyps for 7 days (these times can be changed by the doctor depending on the condition of the patient). Bleeding, ocular bruises, intranasal adhesions called sinechia and aesthetic complications might be seen after the operation. The rates of complications associated with rhinoplasty vary from 10-20 percent. You can contact us directly for more information.
