Eyelid Aesthetics

Eyelid Aesthetics (Blepharoplasty)

Who Will Benefit From Blepharoplasty Surgery

It can be applied to those who have sagging problems in the lower and upper eyelids due to aging, or those who have drooping in the eye area due to genetic reasons, traumas as a result of accidents or infection.


How is eyelid aesthetics (blepharoplasty) performed?


After the patient is evaluated before eyelid aesthetics, pre-operative drawings and measurements are made on the natural curved lines of the upper lid. For the incision, some special laser technologies are used. Lower lid aesthetics can be done from the lower lid lash line or from the inner side of the eyelid with a method called transconjunctival.


Is eyelid aesthetics (blepharoplasty) permanent?


With eyelid aesthetics, the excess on the lids, especially the skin, sometimes muscle and fat tissues are also removed. This is a permanent operation and its effect lasts for 10-15 years. However, over time, there may be patients who need surgery again due to the decrease in skin elasticity, the effect of age, mimics and gravity.


What is the recovery process of eyelid aesthetics (blepharoplasty)?


Redness and swelling occur in the first 3 days after eyelid aesthetics and disappear within 1 week. A good surgical operation and cold application after this period prevents swelling, redness and bruises to a large extent. The bandages on the stitches are removed after the 3 days, and the stitches are removed after 1 week. One month after the operation, the scars of the operation disappear, and the image becomes the best. You can return to daily routine work 3 days after eyelid aesthetic (blepharoplasty) surgery.

With which anesthesia is eyelid aesthetics (blepharoplasty) performed?

Eyelid aesthetic surgeries are mostly performed with local anesthesia (regional numbing). However, it can also be performed with sedation (semi-sleeping called sedo-analgesia) or general anesthesia (full anesthesia) in some special cases or at the request of the patients.

How many years does eyelid aesthetics last? 

Eyelid aesthetics is a permanent operation, not a temporary one, and its effect lasts for 10-15 years. However, over time, there may be situations where surgery may be needed again with the effect of age, facial expressions and gravity, as the elasticity of the skin decreases over time.
