Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Aesthetics)

As you age, your eyelids tighten and the muscles that support them weaken. As a result, excess fat accumulates above and below the eyelids, resulting in drooping eyebrows and upper eyelids, and a formation of under-eye bags. Blepharoplasty is an aesthetic procedure performed to remove excess skin on the upper eyelids and reduce bagging on the lower eyelids.

Who Should Have Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Aesthetics)?

Our skin, which has an elastic structure, decreases as we age. After this elastic loss in the facial structure, excess skin is collected on the eyelids. Therefore, the first signs of aging appear on the eyelids. These changes in the eyelids cause your face to look tired and old which are as follows:

  • Under-eye bags and discoloration,
  • Saggy upper eyelid,
  • Wrinkles and sagging on the upper eyelid,
  • Wrinkles around the eyes,
  • Genetic factors,
  • Anyone over the age of 18 who has a tired look and wants to have a younger face can have eyelid surgery.</li >

Types of Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Upper Blepharoplasty Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery is the process of removing excess skin and muscle tissue with small incisions. In the upper eyelid aesthetics performed with local anesthesia, besides the excess skin, subcutaneous muscle and adipose tissue are also intervened.

Lower Blepharoplasty Surgery

The sebaceous glands in the cheekbones move down with the effect of gravity along with the aging process. This causes sagging under the lower eyelid, a deep wrinkle around the mouth and bags under the eyes. In the lower eyelid surgery, also known as eye bag aesthetics, these fats under the eyes are removed as the first step. After these fat lumps are replaced, the surgeon checks to see if there is too much skin that needs to be removed. A thin incision is made just below the eyelashes and excess skin is removed or spread towards areas with loss of adipose tissue to make it look taut and destroy loose skin. If there is a concave appearance (sunken) under the eye, oil injection treatment is applied to raise the skin.

While only upper blepharoplasty or lower blepharoplasty is performed in some patients, simultaneous application is performed on both the upper and lower eyelids in most patients. In addition, blepharoplasty, which is also defined as eye lift, is often applied together with eyebrow lifting, fox eyes (fox eyes), forehead lift and endoscopic midface surgeries.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

There are several criterias that decide your eligibility for eyelid surgery. Suitable candidates for blepharoplasty which are applied to both men and women, are typically those with healthy facial tissue and muscles and no serious eye disease. If you have eye conditions such as glaucoma (eye pressure) or retinal (intraocular tissues) detachment, you are not a suitable candidate for eyelid aesthetics.

How Is Blepharoplasty Surgery Performed?

Blepharoplasty is a procedure that usually takes 1-2 hours. After anesthesia, incisions are made over the natural lines on the upper eyelids and just below the eyelashes on the lower eyelid. By entering through these incisions, the skin is separated from the underlying fat and muscle tissue. Excess muscle and skin tissue is removed. Previously, adipose tissue removal was performed in almost every operation. However, since it is accepted that the shrinkage of the adipose tissue increases the eye socket and gives an older appearance to the person with advancing age, it is aimed to preserve the adipose tissue as much as possible in modern surgery. Then the incisions are closed with very thin ridges. If there are fat-muscle bags in the lower eyelids without excess skin, an incision is made inside the eyelid without leaving a visible score.

Benefits of the surgery:

  • It becomes possible to get rid of the excess and wrinkles around the eyes.
  • The person gets the desired look due to the removal of wrinkles around the eyes.
  • Easy opening and closing of the eyes becomes possible with eyelid aesthetics.
  • Creation of proportional appearance on the face is achieved by the operation.
  • A younger skin is achieved as a result of removing excess wrinkles on and around the eyelid.
  • The person’s face disproportion and wrinkles are completely removed and the person gets maximum efficiency from his own eye area.
  • It becomes possible to reduce the pain around the eyes.
  • Getting rid of various eye-related diseases and taking precautions is possible thanks to surgery.
