        What is Blepharoplasty?

        Blepharoplasty is commonly referred to as ‘eyelid surgery’ or ‘eyelid lift.’ The surgery involves removing excess skin, muscle, and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids in order to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Main purpose of the procedure is correction of hooded eyes or droopy eyelids.

        The procedure can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons and can be typically undergone under local or general anesthesia.

        Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

        Eyelid surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves the modification of the eyelids. This surgery can be performed for both functional and aesthetic reasons. Here are some of the key benefits of undergoing eyelid surgery:

        • Improved Vision
        • Youthful Appearance
        • Reduced Eye Bags
        • Corrects Drooping
        • Customizable Procedure
        • Minimal Scarring
        • Long-Lasting Results
        • Boosts Confidence
        • Quick Recovery
        • Minimal Risks

        It’s important to have realistic expectations and to discuss all aspects of the surgery, including potential risks, with a qualified plastic surgeon. The suitability of the procedure varies from person to person, depending on factors such as age, skin type, and overall health.

        If you’re worried about looking tired or aged, there may be better options like a facelift. Should you want us to study your case and establish a treatment plan for free, don’t hesitate to contact us for a medical consultation.

        Types of Eyelid Surgery in Turkey

        It is the patient’s responsibility to properly inform him or herself about the procedure and make a conscious, pondered decision. Each case is different and different treatments lead to different results.

        Upon consultation, a surgical plan will be established to provide you with several alternatives. The final choice is always yours.

        Here are the different types of eyelid surgery in Turkey:

        Upper eyelid surgery (Upper blepharoplasty)

        This surgical method addresses excess skin and fat in the upper eyelids which can create a heavy or drooping appearance. Upper eyelid surgery involves removing the excess tissue and tightening the remaining skin and muscle.

        Lower eyelid surgery (Lower blepharoplasty)

        Lower eyelid surgery is typically used to address under-eye bags and puffiness. The procedure involves removing excess fat and/or skin from the lower eyelids and tightening the remaining tissue.

        Double eyelid surgery (Upper and lower blepharoplasty)

        This type of surgery is common in Asian countries.It involves creating a crease in the upper eyelid to make the eyes appear larger and more open.

        Transconjunctival blepharoplasty

        This procedure is used to remove excess fat from the lower eyelids. Unlike traditional lower eyelid surgery, which involves making an incision under the eyelashes, transconjunctival blepharoplasty involves making an incision on the inside of the lower eyelid, leaving no visible scar.

        Blepharoplasty Surgery Procedure in Turkey: Step by Step

        In case you have not been provided with the detailed information, here is an overview of how blepharoplasty in Turkey typically unfolds. Bear in mind that this is an estimate and can vary depending on the individual. Here are the usual 5 steps:


        Medical Tests & Preparation

        Before the procedure, you will undergo all necessary blood tests, X-rays and scans to ensure you are in a suitable condition for the operation.



        You will be given local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia for a painless surgery.



        Surgeon makes an incision on the natural creases of the eyelids. So after healing incision scar will be hidden. 


        Removal of excess tissue

        The next step is the careful removal of excess skin, muscle, and fat as needed to achieve the desired result.



        Once the necessary tissue has been removed or repositioned, the surgeon carefully closes the incisions with sutures or medical adhesive.


        Recovery & Aftercare

        After the procedure is complete, you will be monitored and usually stay the night in the hospital before returning to your Istanbul hotel.

        Frequently Asked Questions Eyelid Surgery

        What is the recovery time?

        Recovery time for eyelid treatment is fast. Most patients are not even hospitalized and are discharged the same day. Most patients are 90% back to normal within two weeks. You may have bruises and swelling after the treatment, and they may heal within 2 weeks.

        How long does eyelid surgery take?

        Blepharoplasty is a simple surgical procedure usually performed under local anesthesia or sedation. The upper blepharoplasty takes about half an hour, while the lower blepharoplasty usually takes about an hour. Lower and upper blepharoplasty operations can be performed at the same time. In such a case, the operation takes 1.5 hours.

        What Are the Best Countries for Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)?

        The best countries for eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) typically include South Korea, Thailand, Brazil, the United States, and Turkey, known for their advanced medical facilities, experienced surgeons, and cost-effective treatments.

        What's The Difference between Brow Lift and Blepharoplasty?

        A brow lift elevates drooping eyebrows and reduces forehead wrinkles, enhancing the upper face. Blepharoplasty, on the other hand, is eyelid surgery that removes excess skin, fat, and muscle around the eyes, addressing issues like sagging eyelids and under-eye bags.

        Are you a good candidate for Blepharoplasty?

        Ideal candidates for blepharoplasty typically include individuals who are physically healthy, non-smokers, without serious eye conditions, and have realistic expectations. The procedure is often considered for those experiencing drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, or impaired vision due to excess skin. It’s crucial to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine suitability for this surgery.

        What is the best age to have blepharoplasty?

        The best age for blepharoplasty largely depends on the individual’s specific circumstances, including skin condition and personal goals. Generally, most people consider this procedure in their 30s to 60s, but it can be suitable at other ages too.

        Is a blepharoplasty worth the money?

        The worth of blepharoplasty depends on individual goals and needs. It can improve vision and appearance for some, but it’s important to consider risks, costs, and realistic expectations before deciding. Consultation with a qualified surgeon is essential.

        Do eyes look bigger after blepharoplasty?

        Blepharoplasty can create the appearance of larger eyes by removing excess skin, fat, and muscle, leading to a more open, refreshed look around the eye area. However, it does not physically enlarge the eyes themselves.

        Are you awake during blepharoplasty?

        Blepharoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation, meaning the patient is awake but relaxed. But we prefer to perform blepharoplasty  under general anesthesia, where the patient is fully asleep. The choice depends on the specific case and patient preference.

        How long until I see the results of my eyelid lift?

        Recovery after eyelid lift surgery is a gradual process and scars may appear slightly pink for six months after the procedure.

        Will my Eyelid Lift incisions be visible?

        The incisions made during the eyelid lift surgery are inside the lower eyelid of the patient, leaving no visible scars.

        Is 60 too old for blepharoplasty?

        Age alone, like being 60, is not a definitive factor for determining suitability for blepharoplasty. Suitability depends more on overall health, skin condition, and specific eye-related issues rather than age. Consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon is essential.

        How much younger does blepharoplasty make you look?

        Blepharoplasty can make a person look significantly younger, often perceived as reducing the appearance of aging by several years, but the exact number varies individually and depends on various factors like skin quality and overall facial aging.

        How painful is blepharoplasty surgery?

        Blepharoplasty typically involves minimal pain. Post-operative discomfort is usually mild and can be managed with prescribed pain medication. Patients often report more discomfort from swelling and bruising than from pain itself.

        Will eyelashes grow back after blepharoplasty?

        Blepharoplasty typically does not affect eyelash growth. Eyelashes can grow back after the surgery, assuming no direct trauma to the follicles occurred during the procedure. However, individual experiences may vary based on surgical technique and healing process.

        Do Eyebags come back after blepharoplasty?

        Eyebags may potentially recur after blepharoplasty due to aging, lifestyle factors, or genetic predisposition, but the surgery typically provides long-lasting results. Regular skincare and healthy habits can help maintain the surgery’s effects.

        Can blepharoplasty be done twice?

        Yes, blepharoplasty can be performed more than once. However, the feasibility of a second surgery depends on individual circumstances, including skin quality and overall facial structure. Surgeons assess these factors before recommending a repeat procedure.

        Who is the best blepharoplasty surgeon in Turkey?

        Determining the “best” blepharoplasty surgeon in Turkey is subjective and depends on various factors, including patient reviews, surgeon’s experience, and individual case successes. It’s advised to research and consult with multiple qualified surgeons to make an informed decision.
