Laser resurfacing, eyebrow lift or temple lift may sometimes be required for the best results. Remember that a separate and personalized planning is required for everyone.
Every year, 100 000 men and women around the world have eyelid surgery to change their appearance. Low eyelids make you look older than you are and restrict your field of vision. Eyelid aesthetics, or blepharoplasty, as it is called in medical language, while eliminating these problems, it also provides removal of under-eye fat and skin bags that make you look sad or tired. This attempt is not effective on the circles around the eyes and wrinkles around the eyes, nor can it correct low eyebrows. Although eyelid aesthetic surgeries are often performed alone, your plastic surgeon may also recommend additional interventions such as eyebrow lifting, face lift or skin rejuvenation for a more successful result.
If you are wondering how eyelid aesthetics can change your appearance, you should have information about how this attempt is done.

For a successful aesthetic, the plastic surgeon and the patient need to understand each other very well. Realistic expectations and trust based on the knowledge and experience of the plastic surgeon should be established at the first meeting. Your surgeon should be able to give satisfactory answers to questions about the details you expect from eyelid aesthetics.

Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Aesthetics?
As in all aesthetic surgeries, it is essential not to have a health problem and to have realistic expectations. Blepharoplasty removes excess fat bags, muscles and skin on the lower and upper eyelids. As a result, you can achieve a more lively and rejuvenated appearance.
While planning the intervention, the plastic surgeon may also suggest additional treatments for raising low eyebrows, stretching your forehead, and skin rejuvenation for wrinkles around the eyes.

Deciding on Surgery
Whether the surgical intervention to be performed is for functional or cosmetic purposes, the choice of your plastic surgeon is very important. The patient should also meticulously follow the warnings of the plastic surgeon before and after the operation.
In the pre-operative examination, you will be asked questions about your eyesight, dry eyes, your contact lens use and your wishes. Your plastic surgeon will explain to you what he expects from blepharoplasty and will question your medical history. Your age, skin structure, racial characteristics and narrowing of your visual field will be important factors. Moreover, in this first examination, an honest exchange of information will be provided between you and your plastic surgeon for a successful outcome.
After the intervention to be applied to you is planned, your surgeon will inform you about the anesthesia, hospital and the budget of the surgery, and will explain the risks of the surgery.

In the upper eyelid, the plastic surgeon first determines the natural lines and folds so that the scars can be hidden. After the incision is made, fat bags, excess muscle and sagging skin are removed. Closure is provided with elegant and fine stitches to minimize scars.
In the lower eyelid, the incision is made immediately at the bottom of the eyelashes and the scars are hidden. Fat bags, muscle and skin excess are removed and closure is provided with very thin elegant sutures. If the problem in the eye is only fat bags, the incision can be made through the lower eyelid. Under normal conditions, the operation takes one or two hours.

When the surgery is over, eye ointment is applied to the suture lines and cold compresses are applied. Drops that prevent dry eyes can be used. Post-operative swelling and bruising will occur to some extent. Keeping the head elevated and using cold compresses will accelerate healing and increase comfort.
There may be tearing and stinging sensation in the eyes for a week. You can clean the eye area and use the recommended drops and eye ointments. Your plastic surgeon will inform you about your physical activity and environmental conditions during this week. Stitches are removed in 4-5 days.
Aesthetic surgery applications on the face will help you regain your self-confidence and correct the signs of premature aging on your face.
Your health insurance does not cover aesthetic applications to the eyelids. However, conditions that restrict the visual field, deformities or injuries in the eyelids can be fully or partially covered by your health insurance.
People who have had eyelid surgery before and have had unsuccessful results should not be upset either; Corrective actions can always be taken for a better result.
