All About the Blepharoplasty Procedure

It is more sensitive around the eyes than other parts of the face. It is not resistant to wrinkles and abrasions. As the skin ages, it loses its elasticity. This decrease in flexibility, combined with the force of gravity, causes aging skin to sag. With factors such as advancing age, smoking, stress, complaints of wrinkles around the eyes, sagging of the upper eyelid, sagging of the lower eyelid, bags under the eyes and bruises under the eyes occur.

In case of increase in these complaints, which cause a tired, sleepless and old appearance, eyelid aesthetic operations are needed. The drooping of the upper eyelid or the progression of eye bag formation causes narrowing of our visual field. It is important to perform eye aesthetics by physicians who know the anatomical, nervous and vascular system structure of the eye best.

Before eyelid aesthetics, skin thickness, the amount of fat in the eyelids and muscle structure should be examined. Before planning a blepharoplasty, you should discuss your medical history and expectations by talking to a plastic surgeon who specializes in eye surgeries.

All About the Blepharoplasty Procedure

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is an operation to remove excess skin and adipose tissue (remove bags under the eyes) on the lower and upper eyelids, which gives a tired and aged expression to a person. Eyelid surgery is not only applied for aesthetic purposes. Sometimes the eyelids may droop to such an extent as to restrict vision.In this case, the implementation of the blepharoplasty operation to eliminate the sagging of the eyelid is the most effective method of improving the quality of vision and field of view.

With this surgical procedure, the circles under the eyes and the pits around the eyes are removed due to the reduction of fat tissue around the entire eye. Removing excess skin and adipose tissue makes it obvious in the bones around the eyes. Briefly, blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure for the removal of deformations that occur on the lower and upper eyelids.

How is Blepharoplasty Performed?

In blepharoplasty operations, the aesthetics of the upper eyelid and lower eyelid are different from each other, and depending on the patient's condition, the scope of surgical intervention is determined after a doctor's examination. There are many techniques in eyelid aesthetic surgeries.

First, the patient's eye and oculoplastic examinations should be done in detail and the patient's eye and lid functions should be evaluated. An experienced surgeon is well-versed in many different techniques, and because of the examination, s/he will be able to determine the most suitable technique for his patient and apply it. It is applied in the form of removing excess skin by making an incision on the upper eyelid in accordance with the natural eye fold.

With an incision made on the lower eyelid, just below the eyelashes, excess skin and adipose tissue are removed. The operation for blepharoplasty is performed under local anesthesia or intravenous sedation. According to the patient's complaint, only the upper or lower eyelids or both are intervened. The process takes about 1 – 1.5 hours.

After the Blepharoplasty Procedure

The early period after the blepharoplasty operation is usually comfortable. After surgery, some complications may occur temporarily. It is normal to have swelling and bruising around the eyes. Dryness and burning sensation in the eyes may occur. Tears may increase, the eyes may be disturbed by light, and the patient may not be able to fully close his/her eyes in the first days. After the blepharoplasty operation, ice compresses are applied to reduce bruising and swelling. Swelling and bruises will go away in 1-2 weeks.

If you have pain in your eyelids, you can use the painkiller recommended by your doctor. After blepharoplasty surgery, hospitalization is usually not required, but the patient may be under the supervision of a doctor as a precaution. The stitches applied during the surgery are removed a week after the operation. In about 6-7 months, the incision scars on the eyelids become completely invisible. Since your eyelid is sensitive during this process, you should not expose your skin to the sun.

After the blepharoplasty operation, many people state that they have a younger and rested appearance and feel more self-confident. In the operations performed in the Milano Klinik, the best and correct aesthetic procedures are applied for the patient. For a service experience that you will be satisfied with, you can contact the expert staff of Milano Klinik.

Who is the blepharoplasty operation suitable for?

Anyone who is healthy and has realistic expectations can be considered an appropriate candidate for eyelid surgery. Although it is mostly an operation preferred by people aged 35 and over, it can also be performed at an earlier age if the person has a genetic low eyelid and bloating. Eyelid aesthetics provides a younger, less tired look and beautifies your face.

Blepharoplasty, one of the operations performed by many celebrities, eliminates aesthetic problems around the eyes, helping the face to look younger and more energetic.Let's give some examples of famous names who look younger with plastic surgery on their eyelids.

It is known that Tom Cruise had blepharoplasty surgery on the lower eyelids, especially to get rid of eye bags.Renee Zellweger is known to have had an eye lift to remove excess fat and skin around her eyes. Al Pacino has undergone several operations to reduce under-eye bags and sagging of the eyelids. Paris Hilton is said to have had an eye lift in 2006, but this procedure made her left eye more drooping than the right.It is known that she had another eye lift surgery to correct the inequality.

The results of the blepharoplasty operation are permanent, but the new shape of the eyelids is affected by the lifestyle of the person, weight gain, stress, insomnia, gravity. Care should be taken not to experience deformation after surgery and not to repeat the operation. The operation cannot stop the ongoing aging of the eyelids, but it continues its effect for up to 7-8 years.
