Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure performed as a result of excess fat gathering above and below your eyelids, causing droopy upper lids.
Excess tissue is removed from your upper or lower eyelids to achieve perfect result.
The physical examination and drawings before the surgery is very important. It is necessary to determine the correct proportions and plan the harmony of the lip with other facial features.
How Blepharoplasty Works?
Eyelid surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the longevity of the surgery.
Operation may be performed only on the lower lid, upper lid or both.
Adhering to the drawings made before the operation, the surgeon performs the necessary incision on the lower and upper lids, and removes excess skin and fat.
Operation on each eyelid takes about 30 minutes. You may have botox or other laser procedures together with eyelid lift.
What is the Recovery Period after the Surgery?
You do not need to stay at the hospital after the operation. Using ice packs for the first 24 hours prevents edema to a great extent. Keep you head raised when you go to bed for the first week, in order to prevent any edema on your eyelids. You will recover completely in 10 days.
Who Can Have Blepharoplasty?
Patients who do not have excessive dry eyes and advanced diabetes may have this procedure. Anyone who wants to get rid of the problems around the eyes can have this operation, regardless of race, gender and age.
