Eyelid Correction – Blepharoplasty
- 6 October 2019
What is the importance of eyelid aesthetics?
Social interaction between people starts with eye contact.
Our first impressions about someone are formed by his/her looks. Therefore, an impressive look has a key role in social communication.
How and why is a blepharoplasty performed?
Eyelid operations are undertaken to correct the age-related or congenital deformities of the eyelids. Most common problems corrected during a blepharoplasty are eyelid sagging, sad look, inflated/deflated eyelids, tear-trough deformity, eyelid bags and eyelid laxity. Most of the time, eyelid surgery is performed under local anaesthesia, but sometimes general anaesthesia might be required. Hospital stay is generally not required.
How long does a blepharoplasty take?
Blepharoplasty operations takes between half an hour to two hours depending on the details of the operation.
When can I get back to my work/daily life?
You can return to your daily life within a couple of days, but bruises and swelling will last for a week.
I live outside the city/country. How long do I need to stay in Istanbul?
When do I get the results of my operation?
It takes 6 months for the healing to be completed totally.
