The number of aesthetic operations is increasing day by day. Aesthetic operations that many people approached cautiously because of their expensive in the past years has reached the costs that many people can do due to the development of opportunities. Different aesthetic operations other than nose and ear aesthetics appeals to those who have problems in different parts of their body. Eyelid operation has become particularly popular in recent years. It is an operation that many people are curious about the details of it.


What is eyelid operation?

Eyelid operation known as blepharoplasty is performed to the upper and lower eyelids. It is an operation for removing the sagging skin and excess muscle tissue as well as stretching the tissues around the eyes. Although we should state that there is no risk if it was performed by a plastic surgeon.

Sagging of the skin is a nightmare for many women. The self-confidence of women is pull down due to these sags that occur due to both aging and the effect of gravity. Bagging in the eyelids, discoloration, loosening of the skin, wrinkles and loosening are also among the problems that occur during this period. There are many factors that accelerate the aging process of the skin. First of all, factors such as exposure to sunlight, irregular sleep duration, air pollution, smoking and drinking alcohol have a significant effect on the aging process of the skin.

Eyelid operations are needed because of the signs of aging of the eyelid. The skin has an extremely elastic structure. However, we can say that the elasticity of the skin gradually decreases with the aging of any person. With the loss of elasticity, the skin is densely collected on the eyelids. In other words, we can say that the first signs of aging appear on the eyelids. A tired and dull facial expression occurs due to age-related changes in the eyelids. As a result, the person will look even older than reality. Many signs of aging are seen in the lower and upper eyelids.

  • First of all, there is bagging and especially discoloration under the eyes.
  • The upper eyelid appears lower as an annoying aesthetic problem.
  • Wrinkles and sagging occur on the eyelid skin. Sagging should be resolved as soon as possible.
  • The lines around the eyes are a detail that many people do not like.
  • As we said before, a tired and old facial expression emerges.

In addition to all these, skin loosening occurs on the eyelids. This situation causes droopy upper eyelid. Sometimes the lowness we have mentioned can reach a level that prevents even vision. In such cases, those who have this problem should seek treatment as soon as possible. Low brow and forehead area are a symptom of droopy eyelid. As a result, a seriously disturbing facial expression will emerge.

As we mentioned before, eyelid operations are becoming more popular every year. There are those who want to undergo eyelid aesthetic operation for both aesthetic and functional reasons. At this point, eyelid operation can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both depending on the situation that the patient has experienced. Eyelid operation can be performed alone as well as with eyebrow lift, forehead lift and endoscopic mid-face surgeries.

What should be considered before eye lid operation?

Eyelid operations are performed due to a problem that occurs when aging, as we have explained before. For this reason, we should clarify that it was built especially for people aged 35 and over. Signs of aging in the eyelids occur from these ages. However, it is possible for those who want to benefit from this operation, especially for medical reasons, at any age they have. It is not possible to stop the aging in the eyelids. However, thanks to eyelid operations, we can say that it is an operation that lasts for 7-8 years on average. While the person has a tired facial expression before the surgery, a much more vivid and energetic facial appearance will emerge after the operation.

For those who are thinking of having eyelid operations, there are some points that they should pay attention to. First of all, aspirin and other blood thinners should be stopped before the surgery due to the risk of increased bleeding. In fact, it is recommended not to use any medication or supplements at least 15 days before. Those who have to use medication regularly due to a different disease should share this with their doctor. In addition, it is necessary to quit smoking and similar tobacco products because of delaying wound healing. It is never recommended to use herbal supplements because they can create an unexpected effect.

How is Eyelid surgery performed?

Eyelid operation are performed in two different ways, both lower and upper eyelid operations. Another name for upper eyelid operation is known as low eyelid. With this surgery, the excess skin and muscle tissue in the area is cut and removed. In addition, an incision is made from the eyelid fold line in order to not see the surgical scar. Although the upper eyelid operation can produce efficient results when performed alone, we should explain that it will give much more successful results when performed together with forehead and eyebrow lifting operations.

Lower eyelid operations are performed in a very different way. Especially at a young age, the fat pads on the cheekbones changed downward with the effect of gravity along with the aging factor. As a result of this situation, under the lower eyelid occurs slumped. In addition, the deepening of the laugh lines at the rim is also annoying.

The aesthetic procedure for the above-mentioned fat pads is endoscopically hanging the pads in place. In other words, the aesthetic procedure in the previous sentence is performed before any operation that is performed on the lower eyelid. If it is not necessary, after the operation on the oil pads, the process can be terminated without any further action. However, the lower eyelid is re-evaluated, just in case. In other words, it is checked for bagging and sagging. If the findings we mentioned do not disappear, the lower eyelid surgery can be start. Surgical incision is made right after the eyelashes. Then, the skin is lifted and the oil packets are spread towards the under-eye pit. Finally, excess skin and muscle are cut. However, we must explain that everything is not over with this surgery. In some cases, post-operative detention collapse continues. In such cases, under eye oil injection may be required.

Is there any problems that can occur after Eyelid Lifting surgery?

Eyelid operations considered as a minor surgery. However, it’s still has some risks. Swelling in the eyelids during a very short time is an important problem that m ay occurs. At this point, the patient should rest at home for a maximum of one week and not go out. There is no pain after the operation. In other words, there is no situation that would require the patient to be observed at the hospital. Finally, we can say that eyelid operations prices within reach to everyone’s budget.
