Eyelid Aesthetics and Blepharoplasty


Eyelid Aesthetics and Blepharoplasty

Beautiful eyelids are the corner stone of having a young, healthy and fit look. If the eyelids are not in ideal shape and position they may make you not only look older than you are, but sometimes sleepless, tired and unhappy.

Upper Eyelid Aesthetic (Upper Blepharoplasty)

Sagging of the upper eyelid  and eyelid  bags  are usually the most common complaint of people who comes for upper eyelid aesthetic surgery. The amount of this excess skin changes, of course, from person to person, but what does not change is that the excess of the skin increases with age. As the amount of sag due to this excess of the skin increases, the problems that it creates also grow. A slight excess of skin creates an old age sign by erasing the eyelid curl, while a little more sagging also prevents makeup. In more advanced cases, this flaccid skin is almost obstructs the field of view. In this case the problem goes beyond an aesthetic problem and gains a functional dimension. These persons who has excess eyelid skin, lift the eyebrows unwittingly so that you cannot come into your sight. This constantly raising eyebrows causes increasingly deepening of the forehead wrinkles.

In some young patients, there may be excess of fat without excess skin, and bagging on the eyelids that result in herniation. The fat pockets in the lid of the eye are held in their compartment by a thin membrane. As this subtle texture weakens, these fat pads appear to have pushed outward. Often, in elderly patients, the mechanism of lifting the upper eyelid may cause a fall in the upper eyelid associated with the weakening. This mechanism can also be repaired when upper eyelid surgery is performed.

Upper Eyelid Surgery (Upper Blepharoplasty)

This operation is performed with local anesthesia. Interventions are made in accordance with the problematic parts that are specific to the person. The trail will not be visible because it is folded in the eyelid curvature. Depending on the needs of the person, it may be necessary to combine eyelid surgery with eyebrow elevation, endoscopic or open forehead lift and temporal lifting, fat injection procedures to obtain the ideal result. I would advise you to listen to the recommendations of your surgeon in this regard.

If only upper eyelid surgery is to be performed, the time may vary from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on the procedures performed. You can go home the same day after surgery.
