Eyelid Aesthetics

Eyelid aesthetics (Blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure applied for sagging of the upper and lower eyelids caused by aging, genetic causes, trauma and infection. In general, it is applied for symptoms such as sagging, bagging, wrinkle formation, upper eyelid and eyebrow drooping, lower eyelid lining and bagging.

Before the eyelid aesthetic surgery, the patient is examined and evaluated in detail. The surgery can be performed under local, sedation (semi-sleep) or general anesthesia. During the preoperative evaluation, detailed drawings and measurements are made from the natural folds of the eye. Local anesthetic is applied to control bleeding and to prevent pain during surgery. Scalpel, electrocautery and laser are used for the surgical incision. After the removal of excess tissues on the lids, removal of fatty tissues, tightening of sagging tissues, the incisions are closed and the surgery is terminated.

The most common conditions after eyelid aesthetic surgery are swelling (edema), rarely bruising and bleeding in the form of leakage. Ice is applied intermittently for 2-3 days after the surgery. Stitches are removed after approximately 1 week and incision scars disappear after 4-6 weeks.
