What is blepharoplasty & brow lift and who is a suitable candidate for the surgery?

Eyelid aesthetics or blepharoplasty, one of the most popular aesthetic operations today, is a surgical procedure performed on the eyelid and its surroundings, which is a part of our face and has the thinnest skin area in our body.

The main problems that appear in and around the eyelid are:

  • Distortion of the natural shape of the eyelid caused by the loosening and sagging of the skin of the upper eyelid resulting in vision difficulties
  • Fat deposits that look like swelling on the eyelids
  • Bags under the lower eyelid
  • The lower eyelid sagging, showing the whites of the eye under the iris.
  • Excessive wrinkles under the lower eyelid

Depending on the general condition of your face and the problem in the eyelids, excess fat, muscle, and skin tissue are removed from the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both eyelids.

Eyelid sagging due to age creates a tired, sleepy facial expression. Thanks to this operation, the eye area and looks are rejuvenated.

Under-eye bags are hereditary. The fat tissue is located under the eye and forms glands here. Surgery is performed by completely removing the fat tissue in this area or changing its location. This procedure can also be done under local anesthesia. Thanks to the procedure performed through the eyelid, there is no incision on the skin.

Dropping eyelid, called eyelid ptosis, due to the elongation of the eyelid muscle that is congenital or due to age, requires a different surgical method.

What are the eye aesthetic surgery techniques?

- Upper Eyelid Operation

This operation usually aims to treat the sagging of the upper eyelid due to aging or genetic factors. In case of excessive sagging of the upper eyelid, this operation is performed not only for aesthetic purposes but to make the eyelid function properly.

- Lower Eyelid Operation

This operation aims to treat the sagging of the lower eyelid, the under-eye swelling, and improve the appearance of the under-eye area.

- Eyebrow Lift Operation

Eyelid saggings can also develop due to dropped forehead or eyebrow. Loose skin caused by the drop of the eyebrow causes the eye to close. Surgery is performed in two ways.

The first method is to make an incision parallel to the hairs from the upper line of the eyebrow and raise the eyebrow.

The second method is successfully applied in droppings on the outer 1/3 of the eyebrows. The eyebrows are raised by entering through the eyelid.

What should be considered before the eyelid aesthetic surgery?

  • It should be ensured that the plastic surgeon is experienced and the results of his/her previous surgeries should be investigated.
  • You should be informed before the surgery by talking to the Plastic Surgeon about your expectations in terms of your health and aesthetics.
  • Regularly used medicines and your illnesses, if any, should be reported to your doctor.
  • If you smoke, you should quit smoking at least 1 month before until 1 month after the operation as it will affect the healing process.

What should be considered after eyelid aesthetic operation?

  • After the surgery, the eyelids and their surroundings become red and swollen. It is recommended to keep the head upright to reduce bruising and swelling,
  • Swelling can be prevented from increasing by applying ice on the first day.
  • Moisturizing creams are used to prevent the eyes from drying.
  • Antibiotic creams and anti-edema pain relievers are also used.
  • After discharge, the patient should rest and the eye should be protected from infections. It is recommended to stay away from activities that will dry the eyes, such as using computers, watching television, and reading books.
  • You can return to daily life within 10 days, but it is necessary to wait 3 weeks to participate in intense and heavy activities.
  • A control examination will be done after the surgery, as often as the doctor deems appropriate.
