Eyelid correction

What is Blepharoplasty ?

Blepharoplasty or correction of the eyelids is the surgical name for a procedure that corrects the eyelids and eye area. It initially creates a youthful look of the area, but can also help with some vision problems. Under the eyes , the lowered caps and visible wrinkles can be eliminated by this type of surgical procedure. There is an increasing number of people who decides on the correction of the lids and whose blepharoplasty has met expectations.

Patient preparation

As with all operations, Blepharoplasty also requires preoperative consultation with the surgeon to determine expectations and meet the patient with important information. Generally, before surgery should be stopped taking any pain medication such as Aspirin or Andol. The patient will be familiar with the type of anesthesia that will be subjected to this procedure. As far as the procedure itself is concerned, it is short-lived, routine and simple. Sometimes it is performed together with other aesthetic interventions.

The procedure

Blephoplasty is most commonly performed under local and exceptionally under general anesthesia. As the cuts should not be visible, they work on leather bands and lines.Then the excess fat is removed or moved, the muscles are reduced and the skin is removed. With these three techniques, the patient resolves the cause of tired appearance, visible signs of skin aging, and difficult vision. In addition to classical blepharoplasty in which the cut is under the eyelashes, transconductive blepharoplasty is performed by means of a cut on the inside of the occipital lining.

Recovery process and helpful tips

Depending on the condition of the patient and the complexity of the operation, one day hospitalization occurs after the procedure. Recuperation continues with home care. What is particularly important is to emphasize that, unlike other procedures, blepharoplasty is almost untreated with postoperative pain. The most common problem after the procedure is increased tears. Sutures are taken 3 to 7 days after the operation, and going to work is most likely ten days after surgery, or earlier with sunglasses.


Complete patient expectations are achieved one month after surgery. Then the effects become completely visible.
