Eyelid Surgery in Turkey

The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate than the other parts of the face. Factors such as age, stress, exposure to sunlight, air pollution and irregular sleep cause wrinkles around the eyes, sagging of the upper and lower eyelid and bags and bruises under the eyes. As these complaints also cause a tired, sleepless and aged appearance, many people search for a solution to make them look younger and fresher. That is where an eye surgery to remove bags plays a key role. 

Blepharoplasty (eye surgery) is the surgical removal of excess skin and fat tissues on the eyelids. As we age, sagging of the skin naturally occurs due to the effect of gravity. In addition to sagging in the lower and upper eyelids caused by ageing; Eye bag surgery is also applied for sagging caused by genetic reasons, accidents, traumas or infections. Progression of sagging or bagging of the upper eyelid causes our visual field to narrow. Thus in these situations, it is applied not only for aesthetic concerns but also for functional reasons.

Eye bag removal surgery, also eye lift surgery or blepharoplasty, has become one of the most popular and widely applied cosmetic procedures all over the world due to the simplicity and effectiveness of the procedure. The term 'blepharoplasty', derived from the Latin word 'blepharo' (eyelid), covers all kinds of surgical and non-surgical methods involving the modification of the eyelid. The main target in all types of eye cosmetic surgery is to achieve younger and more attractive looks by preserving eyelid functions.Before an eyelid surgery, skin thickness, amount of fat on the lids and muscle structure are examined. After a detailed evaluation of droopy eyelids, the necessary measurements are made for the blepharoplasty procedure. Drooping eyelids can be transformed to the desired shape by using incisions and special laser technologies. Eyelid plastic surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and takes generally between 1-3 hours. This period may vary depending on the type of eyelid surgery and the progression of drooping eyelids.

Types of Eyelid Surgery

As eye cosmetic surgery is one of the most preferred and successful operations, different types for different needs have emerged over time. The most common ones are upper and lower eyelid surgery, as listed below:


Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper eye lid or droopy eyelid surgery is, in short, the process of cutting and removing excess skin and muscle tissue in the area. An incision is made at the eyelid fold line to avoid visible surgical scars. It gives better results when applied together with forehead lift and eyebrow lift operations. In addition, patients who have had upper eye lid surgery can also choose operations such as almond eye surgery.


Lower Eyelid Surgery

Fat pads, which are located on the cheekbones when you are young, shift downwards under the influence of gravity as you age. This condition causes signs of ageing such as sagging under the lower eyelid and deepening of the lines around the mouth. The surgical incision is made just below the eyelashes. The skin is lifted and the fat packets found here are spread to the under-eye, the excess skin and muscle are cut and removed, and the procedure is completed.

In Which Situations is Eyelid Surgery Performed?

The skin normally has an elastic structure. However, as we age, its elasticity gradually decreases. As a result of the loss of elasticity in the facial skin, excess skin first accumulates on the eyelids. Therefore, the first signs of ageing appear on the eyelids. Age-related changes in the eyelids cause the person to look tired, dull and older than they are. The signs of ageing seen in the lower and upper eyelids may need an eye cosmetic surgery, some of which are written below:

1)    Bags and colour change under the eyes

2)    Droopy upper eyelid

3)    Wrinkles and sagging of the eyelid skin

4)    Lines around the eyes

Eyelid Surgery Recovery and Results

Intermittent ice application is recommended for 15 minutes per hour during the day for the first 2 days. It is important to elevate the head level with 1 or 2 pillows while lying down. It is recommended to stay away from jobs that require excessive effort, sports, bending and standing, and hot temperatures. In the first week after the surgery, activities such as reading books, using the computer, and watching television that may cause the eyes to dry should also be avoided.

Bandages on the stitches are removed after the first 3 days, and the stitches are removed after 1 week. After eyelid plastic surgery, edema and bruises on the eyelids heal within 3-10 days. It is very important to protect yourself from the sun after the operation. 1 month after the operation, the scars of the surgery disappear and the appearance is at its best.
