Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Turkey

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Turkey

In Turkey, eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure aimed at removing sagging skin, excess muscle tissue and tightening the tissues around the eyes, both on the lower and upper eyelids. This procedure is typically performed by a plastic surgeon to improve the appearance of the eyes and create a more youthful look. In some cases, blepharoplasty is combined with other procedures such as a brow lift, forehead lift, or endoscopic midface surgeries to achieve optimal results.

If you are interested in blepharoplasty in Turkey, speak to a qualified cosmetic surgeon who can assess your needs and provide personalized recommendations.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)


As we age, gravity takes its toll on our skin, resulting in sagging and drooping. This natural process often causes bagging on the eyelids, loose skin, discoloration, wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging. Sun exposure, air pollution, irregular sleep, smoking, and excessive alcohol use can accelerate this process.

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that can address these issues. It typically takes one to three hours and can be performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The plastic surgeon makes incisions in the areas where scars will be least visible, such as in the creases of the upper eyelids or below the lower lash lines. Excess skin or fat is then removed, and sutures are applied.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is eyelid lift surgery?

Eyelid lift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the eyelids and repairs sagging or drooping upper eyelids (ptosis). The procedure can enhance the appearance of the eyes and improve vision in some cases.

How is droopy lower eyelid fixed?

Lower eyelid surgery, also called canthopexy, can fix sagging or drooping eyelids caused by sun damage, aging, prior eyelid surgery, or paralysis. The procedure involves tightening and possibly elevating the lower eyelids.

What are the treatments for droopy eyelids?

If a droopy eyelid is blocking your vision, you may need medical treatment. Surgery is the recommended treatment in most cases. However, glasses that can hold up the eyelid, known as a ptosis crutch, may be an option for temporary eyelid drooping.

Can eye bags be removed?

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can remove excess fat and sagging skin from the upper or lower eyelids. The procedure can also correct baggy or puffy eyelids, improving the overall appearance of the eyes.

How is lower eyelid surgery performed?

During lower eyelid surgery, the surgeon typically works on the upper eyelids first. The surgeon makes an incision along the eyelid fold, removes excess skin, muscle, and possibly fat, and then closes the incision.

How long does eyelid lift surgery last

Upper eyelid surgery can last for at least 5 to 7 years. Lower eyelid surgery rarely needs to be repeated. However, the eyes will still continue to age after the procedure, and if the eyelids sag again, a forehead lift may be a preferred procedure over another eyelid lift.

Is eyelid surgery painful?

After the procedure, patients may experience some pain and discomfort, which can be managed with pain relief medication. The eyelid may be swollen and bruised for 1 to 3 weeks after surgery, with improvement occurring over the following months.

Is eyelid surgery risky?

As with any surgery, there are potential risks and complications associated with eyelid surgery. These risks include infection, bleeding, scarring, inability to close the eyes, dry eye, abnormal eyelid position, double vision, and even vision loss.

What is the recovery process after eyelid surgery?

Following eyelid surgery, patients should keep their head elevated as much as possible during the first few days to minimize swelling and bruising. Most people can return to normal activities after 7 to 10 days, and the majority of the bruising and swelling should resolve within 2 weeks.

When can I drive after blepharoplasty?

Most people return to normal activities after seven to 10 days following blepharoplasty. By two weeks after eyelid surgery, the majority of the bruising and swelling will resolve.

When can I drive after blepharoplasty?

Patients may be able to drive a few days after eyelid surgery, but it is suggested that they avoid bending or performing any heavy lifting for 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure.

How can I speed up the healing process after eyelid surgery?

Resting during the first 48 hours after the procedure and applying a cold compress repeatedly can help accelerate the healing process. Resting will also reduce the severity of the swelling and bruising.

Is eyelid surgery a permanent solution?

Eyelid surgery is considered a permanent solution for correcting droopy eyelids, but in some cases, the procedure may need to be repeated after a period of years. Upper eyelid surgery can be expected to last for approximately 5 to 10 years.
