What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a highly effective procedure designed to address various concerns related to the eyelids. As we age, our eyelids can accumulate excess fat tissue, resulting in sagging skin and a tired appearance. Blepharoplasty targets both the upper and lower eyelids to remove excess fat, tighten loose skin, and restore a more youthful and rejuvenated look to the eyes.
Achieving Youthful Eyes through Blepharoplasty
Upper Eyelid Surgery
One of the primary concerns addressed by blepharoplasty in Turkey is drooping and loose skin on the upper eyelid. This condition not only contributes to an aged appearance but can also obstruct vision. Our skilled surgeons will tighten the skin between your eyebrows and eyes, remove the excess skin, and create a more youthful, rejuvenated look. The procedure not only enhances your appearance but can also significantly improve your vision.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
The lower eyelid is often the first area to show signs of ageing, with excess tissue in the nasal, central, and lateral fat bags leading to puffiness and a tired appearance. Lower blepharoplasty focuses on removing this excess fat tissue, resulting in a smoother, more refreshed look. Additionally, if you have loose skin due to weakened muscles, the surgery can tighten the skin and eliminate the saggy under-eye look.
Qualifying for Eyelid Surgery
If you are considering blepharoplasty, you need to understand the qualification process. While there are no strict age limitations, you need to be in good health and refrain from smoking to be a suitable candidate for the procedure. Our surgeons prioritize the condition of your skin over your age when determining your eligibility. In some cases, eyelid surgery may be deemed necessary rather than optional, especially if impaired peripheral vision is present. To determine your eligibility and learn more, we encourage you to consult with our experienced surgeons.

The Blepharoplasty Procedure in Turkey
Before the Procedure: During your consultation session, your surgeon will discuss the planned results and mark out the incision lines. The procedure can be done under either general or local anaesthesia, depending on your specific condition.
The Procedure Itself: The blepharoplasty procedure begins with a precise incision made on the upper or lower crease. Your surgeon will remove the excess skin and fat to achieve your desired look. Striking the perfect balance in removing the right amount of skin and fat is crucial to avoid any unsatisfactory outcomes. In addition, your surgeon will also adjust the volume of fat tissue to achieve a symmetrical look. After removing the excess tissue, the incisions will be carefully closed.
Essential Information for Eyelid Surgery:
Duration: The procedure typically lasts 1-2 hours.
Daily Life: You may need 1-2 weeks of recovery time.
Hospital Stay: A one-night stay at the hospital is usually required.
Exercise: Strenuous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks.
Anaesthesia: The choice between general or local anaesthesia will be made based on your specific condition.
- Full Recovery: Full Recovery: For most patients, complete recovery from blepharoplasty will take about three to four weeks, although slight variations can occur based on individual healing rates and the extent of the procedure. It’s important to follow all the post-operative care instructions given by your surgeon to ensure a smooth recovery and the best results.
To ensure a successful recovery, follow the post-operative care instructions provided by your surgeon carefully. Here are some general guidelines:
Swelling and Bruising: Minor swelling and bruising are common following the surgery. Cold compresses can be used to help minimize swelling and soothe any discomfort.
Avoid Strenuous Activities: Strenuous activities, including bending and lifting, should be avoided for at least two weeks post-surgery. Light activities can be resumed about a week after the surgery.
Proper Eyelid Care: Keep your eyelids clean and follow the given instructions for applying ointments and eyedrops.
Protect Your Eyes: Protect your eyes from the sun and wind for several weeks. Wear sunglasses when outdoors.
- No Smoking and Alcohol: Avoid smoking and alcohol, as they can delay the healing process.
Final Results: While the swelling and bruising will fade away within a few weeks, the final results can take several months to settle in fully. Most patients report their final results to be natural-looking, significantly reducing the tired and aged look, and revealing a refreshed, youthful appearance.

How Long Do The Results Of Blepharoplasty Last?
The results of blepharoplasty can be permanent. However, this can depend on numerous factors, including your age, lifestyle, and genetic factors influencing your skin’s natural ageing process. While the surgery can’t prevent future ageing, it can set back the clock by several years.
Is Blepharoplasty Painful?
During the procedure, anaesthesia ensures that you feel no pain. Post-operatively, you might experience mild discomfort, swelling, or a tight sensation, though pain medication can effectively manage these symptoms.
Can I combine my blepharoplasty with other facial surgeries?
Yes, you can. Many patients choose to pair eyelid surgery with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as facelifts, brow lifts, or skin resurfacing treatments. Your surgeon will assess your goals and formulate the best strategic plan for your needs.
