Eyelid Plastic Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

The eye contour area is where the first signs of aging appear. As the age progresses, these signs appear as sagging skin of the eyelids, drooping eyelids, fat deposits under the eyes, thinning of the skin, and nasojugal groove (tear trough) getting more noticeable. 

Our eyes are very important for us. They come into prominence because of their functions and the fact that they are the most important part of our face. The plastic surgery procedure that we call blepharoplasty (eyelid plastic surgery) can be performed as a combined operation in such a way as to involve brow lift, forehead lift, etc. The result can be much more satisfactory if it is performed in conjunction with cheek lift intended to correct sagging of the cheeks. In this way, it is possible to make the patient more satisfied.

Both the upper eyelid and lower eyelid can be intervened during a blepharoplasty operation. Sometimes the droopy upper eyelids that limit the field of view can be corrected, as well. Bags that develop in the lower eyelids are removed. Wrinkles and bag formations under the eyes, which appear with aging, impair the aesthetic appearance.

Although eyelid reduction (blepharoplasty) performed with intent to eliminate the wrinkles and bags that develop in the eye contour area, it is one of the extremely non-invasive procedures that ensure the face to look younger and require a fine work.

How is an Eyelid Plastic Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Performed?

In blepharoplasty, excess skin and fat tissues in the eye contour area are removed. The eye contour area is tightened, with intent to ensure it to have an aesthetically more beautiful appearance. When blepharoplasty is performed in conjunction with Botox injection, more efficient results can be achieved. Droopy upper eyelids are corrected by removing the excess skin and fat through an incision made on the skin of the upper eye lid. The lower eyelids are accessed through an incision made just under the eyelash area, and then the bag formations are eliminated. This surgical procedure leaves almost no scar on the eyelids.

How long does blepharoplasty last?
It takes about 1 hour if only the upper eyelids are intervened, and takes 2 to 3 hours if the lower eyelids are also involved in the operation.

After Blepharoplasty

One week after blepharoplasty operations, which ensure the area around the eye to look aesthetically more beautiful and younger, patients can get back to their normal work routine. After blepharoplasty, a temporary tenseness, swelling, slight bruising, sometimes asymmetry, burning, stinging and itching can occur in the eyelids; and despite being rare, infection can also occur. If there is pain, it can be easily eliminated with simple painkillers. Swelling and bruises in the eye completely disappear within a period of maximum two weeks.
