Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the look of the eyelids. Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. When functional problems related to eyelids are experienced and / or aesthetic problems occur in the eyelid, the area surrounding the eyes can be renewed with eyelid plastic surgery.
If we should briefly list the problems that can be treated with eyelid surgery:
If there is a droopy eyelid that impairs vision, sagging skin that creates folds or distorts the natural contour of the upper eyelid.
If there are fat deposits on the eyelids that look like swelling.
If there are bags under the eyes.
If the lower eyelids are drooping that reveals white under the iris.
If there are fine wrinkles in the lower eyelid, eyelid surgery gives successful results.
Some prerequisites may be sought in patients for eyelid plastic surgery.
Healthy individuals who do not have any medical problems that can prevent recovery
Individuals with realistic goals
Individuals without any serious eye problems
Remember that eyelids are part of the face. A droopy upper eyelid appearance can also be caused by relaxation of the forehead skin and / or muscle. This can sometimes cause a drooping eyelid that extends out of the upper eyelid muscle. This is called eyelid ptosis. It requires a different treatment in eyelid plastic surgery.
The information provided here is for general information purposes. If you have soMe problems with your eyelid, we recommend you first meet with your specialist.

What are the Steps of an Eyelid Surgery?
Step 1: Anesthesia
Some medications are applied to make you comfortable during the surgical procedure. Options include intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Step 2: Incision
Incision lines are designed for eyelid surgery, so that the resulting scars can be well hidden within the natural structures of the eyelid area. The lower eyelid can be corrected with an incision just below the lower lash line. The excess skin on the lower lid is removed with this incision. If there is excess of adipose tissue it can be repositioned or removed.
A transconjoctival incision on the inside of the lower eyelid is an alternative technique to smooth the lower eyelid and to distribute or remove excess of adipose tissue. There is no skin removal step in this technique.
Step 3: Close Cuts
Eyelid incisions are typically closed with suture or skin glue. If there are sutures, they will be removed within 1 week.
Your surgeon may also recommend laser or chemical peeling to remove discoloration in the lower eyelids.
Step 4: Conclusion
Wait for the swelling and bruises that occur after eyelid surgery to disappear. After this stage, a smoother, better defined eyelid contour and a more rejuvenated look will appear.
