Eyelid Aesthetics (Blepharoplasty)

It is an operation performed for sagging and bagging of the eyelids that occur with age. Although we say it depends on age, sometimes drooping eyelids may occur at an earlier age depending on familial and structural characteristics. The eyelid skin is the thinnest skin on the body, and they are often combined with facial rejuvenation surgeries for better results.

It is usually an operation performed over the age of 40. As we mentioned above, it can also be done earlier in those who have structural causes.

Before The Surgery

Before surgery, the person’s eye area should be evaluated together with the forehead and middle face. For example, if only upper eyelid surgery is performed on patients with low eyebrows, then the eyebrow position decreases even more and the ideal result cannot be achieved, or if only the lower eyelid is performed on a patient with sagging in the midface area, the optimal result cannot be achieved again. For this reason, it should be evaluated as a whole and combined if necessary. Again, before this surgery, you should quit smoking 3 weeks in advance and stop blood thinners a week in advance.

Eyelid Surgery

For the upper eyelid, an incision is made through the upper eyelid fold, and excess skin and herniated adipose tissues are removed. For the lower eyelid, it is entered just below the eyelash level and again the excess skin and oils that cause bagging are removed, if necessary, a medium face lift can also be performed through this incision. Sometimes, especially in young people, there may only be bagging on the lower eyelid (there is no excess skin), in this case, fats that lead to bagging can be removed from a small incision entered through the eye without making an external incision at all.

After Surgery

Patients who have undergone eyelid surgery can be discharged on the same day. Because the skin around the eyes is very thin, they are very sensitive, so bruises and swelling are expected. Ice application is recommended on the first day. it is expected to pass within 1 week.you can return to work within 1 week-10 days.
