Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, has become increasingly popular, especially in Turkey. This comprehensive guide delves into what this entails and the procedures available.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the appearance of the eyelids. It addresses various concerns and defects around the eyelids. This includes droopy eyelids, hooded eyes, under-eye bags, and wrinkles. These issues often begin with age, as muscles weaken and skin stretches. Correcting these issues contributes to a more youthful and rested appearance.

What are Procedures?

Types of Blepharoplasty

  • Upper Blepharoplasty: Focuses on correcting drooping upper eyelids by removing excess skin, fat or muscle. Incisions are made on the upper eyelid, fat removed, and incision closed. The incision will be hidden in your natural eyelid crease.
  • Lower Blepharoplasty: Targets puffiness and bags on lower eyelids, often involving fat repositioning. This reduces the look of tiredness. Incisions are made on the lower eyelash line, fat is repositioned, and incision closed.
