Eyelid Surgery

Aging begins on the face with the sagging of forehead and eyebrows after one’s thirties. It causes the upper eyelids to loosen. Muscles on the upper eyelids weaken and the eyelids loosen more and more with increasing age. Lower eyelids begin sagging due to the gravity and adipose tissue on the cheeks. Therefore the lower eyelids weaken and crowsfoot lines become visible. Eyelids aesthetic operations are carried out to tighten the supraorbital by taking excessive fats, muscles and skin tissues off surgically. With this surgical operation; eversions, bagginess, under eye bags, and supraorbital creases are fixed in order to give one a youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is to be done before blepharoplasty?

An ophthalmological examination should be done in order to plan the surgery. Your doctor will give you the necessary information about the surgical technique, drug utilization and the impacts of smoking and consuming alcohol on the surgery.

How is blepharoplasty administered?

This operation takes 20 or 30 minutes for each eyelid. Excessive adipose tissue and excessive muscles removed from subsurface skin.

What should patients avoid after blepharoplasty?

After the surgery, eye patches are banded on your eyelids. Those patches do not obstruct your vision. Cold compress is applied in order to prevent the formation of oedema on the supraorbital area. Empurpling and swelling may occur in this area despite all the precautions and care but they will fade away starting from the third day after the operation. A few hours after the operation, mild bleeding and leakage may be observed on the patches banded on your eyelids. Raising your head by putting another pillow under your neck helps the oedema reduced. The oedema starts fading away on the third day of the operation and patches and stitches will be removed within seven or ten days. When the patches are removed, empurpling and swelling may be observed but they can be covered with cosmetic products. The patient should avoid doing compelling physical exercises, visiting tanning booth, sauna or sunbathing for 6 weeks after the surgery.

Which anesthetic method is used for blepharoplasty?

While upper eyelid operations are administered under local anaesthesia, lower eyelid operations are mostly administered under general anaesthesia.

Will there be any permanent scar after this operation?

A thin pink line can be observed on the curve of the upper eyelid and under the lashes of the lower eyelid in the first weeks but this line will fade away in time.
