The most common eyelid surgery that restores their freshness and youthful appearance is called blepharoplasty.
Aesthetic blepharoplasty is performed in the case of excess skin on the eyelids (dermatochalasis), which usually loses its elasticity due to aging and hangs over the edge of the eyelid, and can be associated with prolapse of adipose tissue from the orbit that causes the formation of fatty pads and dark circles.
Functional blepharoplasty is performed in cases when, in addition to excess skin, the muscles can also be weakened and the eyelid is lowered with the impossibility of raising the eyelid (ptosis).
Surgery under local anesthesia removes excess skin, adipose tissue and stretched muscle threads from the eyelids.
The incision is made in the natural folds of the eyelid or under the lashes and is closed with sutures that are removed in seven days, with a quick recovery and an almost invisible scar.
Ptosis is the medical term for a lowered eyelid. A patient with ptosis cannot open the eye completely, but the upper lid covers the pupil.
In addition to being an aesthetic problem, it can also cause functional impairment of vision and retardation of vision development in children, and prevents adults from living an undisturbed daily life. Ptosis can be present as early as the birth of a child, so it is called congenital. It occurs due to a developmental error while the baby is in the mother’s womb. If a child is born with ptosis that prevents normal vision, surgery is needed as early as possible because a child who is not looking will not develop and will remain visually impaired for life.
Acquired ptosis in adults occurs as a result of injury or degenerative senile changes in the muscles and tendons of the eyelids caused by aging.
Ptosis is treated surgically, and there are several types of surgery. The choice of procedure depends on the type and degree of ptosis.
If the muscle that raises the eyelid (levator palpebrae) has a preserved part of the function, the operation is performed by shortening it. In the event that this muscle does not have sufficiently preserved function, the eyelid is connected by a special procedure to the frontal muscles, which take over the function of the eyelid (so-called brow suspension).
Ptosis correction surgery is performed under local anesthesia and the patient goes home the same day with a very quick recovery. Although the procedure of surgery in children is the same, it needs to be done under general anesthesia.
In older people, changes in the structure of the edge of the eyelid caused by changes in the muscles that hold the eyelid, tendons and the surrounding skin sometimes lead to twisting of the edge of the eyelid. Often such conditions occur after injuries to the eye itself due to scarring, after strokes or similar conditions in the brain, when there is an injury to the nerves innervating the muscles that move the eyelid. The surrounding muscles can no longer hold the eyelash with the lashes in the correct position to fit the eyeball, so the edge of the eyelid is twisted. The edge of the eyelid can be twisted outwards (ectropion) so the eye cannot be closed, tears flow over the edge and the cornea and the front segment of the eye dry out, and the skin of the eyelid becomes irritated, red, ragades are formed – thin cracks, followed by subjective pain. by tingling and irritation.
The edge of the eyelid can be twisted inwards (entropy) and the lashes constantly scratch the front of the eye, creating scars on the cornea, and the patient comes to the doctor’s office with pain. Surgery under local anesthesia strengthens the edge of the eyelid and adjusts it to the appropriate position, or creates new muscle grips to restore the eyelid to its proper shape and function. The sutures are removed at the first check-up a week after the operation, and it is necessary to remove possible bruises in the area of the procedure.
Tumors on the eyelids, as well as anywhere else on the body, must be taken seriously. The most common changes we find are benign (cysts, warts, inflammatory changes) and can be cured with medication or simple surgery. Unfortunately, in some cases, the changes can have malignant features. Apart from the fact that some types of tumors can spread to surrounding and distant areas when they are located on delicate and sensitive areas such as the eyelids and the eye area, they need to be carefully and very sparingly removed with reconstruction of surrounding skin and other structures. to preserve the proper function of the eyelids and the aesthetic appearance of the patient.
Among the most common malignant tumors that require surgery are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma or, less commonly, melanoma.
Tumor removal is performed under local anesthesia, with a tissue sample taken which is then sent for pathohistological diagnostic analysis to the Osijek Clinical Hospital, to the Clinical Institute of Pathology and Forensic Medicine.
The first check-up is seven days after the procedure, when the sutures are usually removed, and it is also the time when it is recommended to return to daily obligations.
The result of the pathohistological analysis is forwarded to the patient by mail or e-mail, as soon as it is sent to the Polyclinic (usually 7-10 days after the procedure).
Thus, the patient is informed about the type of neoplasm (benign / malignant), whether it has been completely removed or whether additional surgery is required.
Botox or botulinum toxin is a neuromuscular agent that works by preventing the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction and thus causing muscle paralysis.
The use of Botox for cosmetic purposes has been approved for the past twenty years. Given its effect on muscles, it is also used for aesthetic purposes because paralysis of facial muscles leads to the smoothing of mimic wrinkles. Daily activity of facial muscles (frowning, amazement, laughing) causes wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, on the outer corners of the eyes and under the lower eyelids. Botox is given to a specific muscle to prevent the formation of wrinkles caused by repeated activity of that muscle. Patients feel the effect a few days after application, and the effect of the injection lasts up to 3 months, which means that the treatment needs to be repeated. Most often Botox is given between the eyebrows, around the outer corner of the eye, below the outer edge of the eyebrow and in the forehead.
Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that manifests itself in excessive sweating in the armpits, palms and / or soles.
The problem is not the usual, but excessive sweating, which leads to feelings of discomfort, and can be very inconvenient and for aesthetic reasons.
By applying botulinum toxin type A in the form of giving intradermal injections into the skin of the armpit, a reversible blockade of the secretion of sweat glands is achieved, due to which sweating in these regions stops.
This preparation works by temporarily blocking the conduction of chemical nerve signals that act to stimulate the sweat glands.
The effect usually becomes noticeable 1 to 3 days after treatment, although in some patients it may take a long time (7 to 12 days) for a noticeable effect.
After 4 to 6 months, a gradual return of symptoms of increased sweating can be expected, when treatment can be repeated. For most people, it is enough to do this twice a year.
The procedure itself does not cause any harmful consequences in terms of health. Experience has shown that the treatment leads to an improvement in the quality of life of people who sweat excessively and after six to nine months most want to repeat this therapy.
Over the years due to the aging process, the skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid, collagen, subcutaneous fat and elasticity. As a result, and due to the gravitational force and constant use of muscles, wrinkles are created, the face loses volume, and the skin becomes tired and dull. The very hyaluronic acid we lose is used as a dermal filler. We use fillers in a way to compensate for the lost volume of skin folds and wrinkles, to shape the contours of the face and to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. The results are visible immediately after the end of the treatment and the emphasis is to get a natural and well-groomed look, a tightening effect and a non-surgical face-lift. The skin looks rested, rehydrated, youthful and fresh.
The speed of the procedure and the immediately visible results are the main advantages of this treatment.
Hyaluronic dermal fillers are intended to treat all areas of the face.
They can treat:
- Nasolabial folds (from nose to lips)
- Smoking wrinkles around the lips
- Wrinkles on the outside of the eyes
- Button Lift
- Full facelift
- Lower jaw and chin contouring
- Rejuvenate neck, décolleté and arms
- Lip augmentation
The treatment itself lasts, depending on the areas to be treated and the amount of filler that is applied, between 30 to 60 minutes.
In some cases, redness may occur that usually disappears after a few hours, while swelling and bruising usually resolve within a few days.
After 2 weeks, the preparation will distribute itself and give its true effect.
Upon completion of the application, you will also receive your finding stating that the original, properly stored and premium dermal filler was used during the application, along with its own product serial number.
We advise our clients to:
- Avoid facial massages and other aesthetic, cosmetic or laser procedures for a week after treatment
- Avoid sunbathing, solarium and sauna for a week after treatment
- Do not apply creams, powders or make-up on the day after the treatment
Skinboosters are preparations of hyaluronic acid that, by moisturizing the skin from the inside, fill and rejuvenate the face, neck and décolleté without adding unnatural volume, which in some cases is not needed to such an extent. At the application sites, skinboosters have subtle and natural effects on the skin, which will be elastic and hydrated after application. They will reduce minor imperfections and improve surface wrinkles, especially in the areas around the mouth and around the eyes.
This procedure is intended for women and men of all skin types and without age restrictions. In addition to the visible anti-aging effect, it is ideal before the summer as a good preparation of the skin for the sun, but also after the summer as a renewal and hydration.
The complete treatment consists of three or four applications of the preparation with intervals of 4 weeks, and the result becomes visible gradually and usually needs to be repeated after 6 months.
The result is a natural, unchanged but significantly improved appearance and an enhanced feeling of freshness and elasticity of the skin in the region of application.
