Eyelid Aesthetics (Blepharoplasty) is a surgical operation in which excess skin, muscle and fat tissues are removed from the upper and lower eyelids.
The reasons such as excessive smoking and alcohol use can cause skin loosening, bagging under the eyes, colour inequality, wrinkle, and these causes may make you look tired and older than you actually are. With blepharoplasty, healthier, younger glances and even partly increased vision in the eyes is ensured.
In the upper eyelid surgery, excess skin, muscle and excess fat pads, if any, are removed and tightness is ensured. The process is applied by matching the fold line of the eyelid.
In the lower eyelid surgery, just like in the upper eyelid, excess fat pads, skin and muscle are removed and tightness is ensured with an incision in lower eyelash to hide the scar.
According to the patient’s condition, only local anesthesia is sufficient for those who will undergo an upper eyelid surgery, while general anesthesia is applied for the lower&upper eyelid operation. The operation takes approximately 1 hour. The duration of hospital stay is 1 day for patients taking general anesthesia.
The patient is recommended to apply ice for the first 48 hours after eyelid surgery. The patient can return to his/her daily life within 1-2 days.
* Eyelid aesthetics surgery is usually done for person aged 35 and over, but can also be done to person who has reached the age of 18 having medical needs.
