Eyelid Aesthetics (Blepharoplasty)

What Causes Low Eyelid?

Eyelid drooping can occur for various reasons. Among the most common causes is the aging process; with aging, eyelid skin and muscles may loosen. This leads to sagging. In addition, in some people, genetic factors or congenital structural features can cause droopy eyelids. Nerve damage, muscle diseases or some neurological conditions can also cause droopy eyelids. Long-term use of contact lenses or eye traumas can also lead to weakening and drooping of the eyelids. The cause of droopy eyelids is important in determining the correct treatment method.

Who is Eyelid Surgery Performed? 

Eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty, is performed to correct problems such as sagging, swelling or excess skin on the upper and lower eyelids. This procedure, also known as droopy eyelid surgery, is suitable for restoring a youthful and dynamic appearance around the eyes. This surgery is especially recommended for people whose visual field is restricted due to sagging or swelling of the eyelids, who are tired or disturbed by an aged appearance. Blepharoplasty can also be preferred to eliminate asymmetry or functional disorders of the eyelids. The surgery is a suitable option for individuals who do not have any health problems that will prevent the procedure and who need aesthetic or functional improvement in their eyelids.

How is Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Performed? 

Eyelid aesthetics is a surgery performed to correct problems in both upper and lower eyelids. Upper eyelid surgery is performed to correct the sagging or loose part of the eyelid. During this procedure, excess skin, muscle and sometimes fat tissue are removed. This gives the eyelids a firmer and younger appearance. In lower eyelid surgery, bags under the eyes and excess skin are removed. The surgery can be performed under local or general anaesthesia and takes approximately 1 hour. After the surgery, some swelling and bruising may occur. However, these symptoms subside within a few days. Blepharoplasty can positively affect the overall facial expression of the person by giving the eyelids a more youthful and rested appearance.

Is There a Risk of Eyelid Surgery? 

Like every surgical procedure, eyelid surgery has some risks. The most common risks include infection, bleeding, swelling and bruising. Rarely, postoperative eyelid asymmetry or problems with wound healing may occur. Also, in very rare cases, eyelid aesthetics can cause temporary or permanent effects on vision. In order to minimise these risks, it is important that the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon and that the patient carefully follows the pre- and postoperative instructions.

Things to Consider After Eyelid Aesthetics

  • In the first few days after surgery, apply ice compresses to your eyes to reduce swelling and bruising.
  • Use eye drops or ointments recommended by your doctor regularly.
  • Avoid overstraining your eyes during the healing process and avoid heavy physical activity.
  • Protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses in the first weeks after surgery.
  • Do not neglect to attend the follow-up appointments set by your doctor and follow his/her recommendations.
