Ageing is a process that happens seemingly out of nowhere and unfortunately, it’s a perfectly natural process that we have very little control over. For some, the ageing process is more obvious to the eye than it is in others and undergoing particular surgeries to reverse the signs of ageing is a perfectly viable option. For those whose insecurities lie in the skin above and under the eyelid, there are a number of options available to rectify the situation. Baggy skin around the eyes can be unsightly and as a consequence can cause unhappiness in sufferers, which is why many individuals turn to our eyelid surgery in Turkey.
The first signs of ageing is visible in the skin around the eyes and it’s fair to say that if you are considering a surgical procedure, then it should be done the sooner the better – as we age, our skin loses elasticity, causing it to sag and loosen – particularly where the thin skin of the face is concerned. In some cases, this loosening of the skin can cause the upper and lower eyelids to sag, impairing vision and leaving the sufferer feeling both uncomfortable and embarrassed.

How Does Blepharoplasty Surgery Work?
Blepharoplasty Surgery is a simple procedure that can be performed under both local and general anaesthetic; surgeons will make a small incision above the lash line, removing any excess skin and fat. These small incisions are stitched back together with sutures, removing all evidence of the bags that had previously brought you so much discomfort and lack of confidence. The eyelid surgery in Turkey is usually a short one, lasting between one and three hours depending on the level of ageing.
A surgery such as this one has minimal recovery time- normally you will be allowed to leave the surgery in the aftermath of your procedure, returning only for your checkup and to ensure that there have been no complications and full recovery will normally be possible within a week to ten days. Ageing around the eyes is a natural process and because of the continued loosening of elasticity in the skin, blepharoplasty surgery is one that may need to be carried out more than once in a person’s lifetime, to conquer the natural progression of ageing in the eye region.

What is Eyelid or Eye Bag Removal Surgery?
Eyelid surgery can remove extra fatty deposits that create a puffy look in upper eyelid. After the surgery, the patient will have a better look and better vision as fatty deposits may impair vision. Bags under eyes can be fixed by the surgery. Lower eyelid surgery can correct drooping eyelid.
How Eyelid Surgery is Performed
The time it takes to carry out surgery depends on the technique plastic surgeon uses and whether patients undergoing upper or lower eyelids or both. The plastic surgeon makes tiny cuts along the natural lines in eyelids, along the creases on the patient’s upper eyelids and below the eyelashes in the lower eyelid. This means patient’s scars will go through the natural eye folds, thereby helping to hide the scars. Excess fat and loose skin are removed, and the cut is closed by stitches. If only fat is removed and there is no excess skin, the cut may be made inside the lower eyelids, thereby leaving no visible scar. The plastic surgeon may also use a laser to tighten any loose skin and reduce wrinkles. Using a laser this way doesn’t leave a scar, though the skin may be red for a few months afterwards. As a result, drooping eyelid is fixed.
Results of Eyelid Surgery
Stitches are usually removed three to five days after surgery. Patients may need to continue using sterile strips of tape to support their eyelids for about a week. Patients will have some swelling around their eyes after the surgery. Applying a cold compress, such as ice wrapped in a towel can help to reduce the swelling. Patients should not apply ice directly on their skin as this can damage it. Patients who undergo a blepharoplasty may watch TV and are able to read after two or three days after surgery. They may go to work in a week or ten days after the surgery. The scars may however still be visible, but make-up can be used to cover them.
As part of blepharoplasty recovery, the patient must avoid bending at the waist for about five days and strenuous activity (especially activities that raise one’s blood pressure, such as lifting and rigorous sports) for about ten days to two or three weeks. Surgery will leave scars, but they are usually well hidden and normally fade in time. Blepharoplasty may leave the patient with bruises or swelling on their faces, and sometimes the patient may become depressed because of this. These are some of the side effects of surgery, which are completely normal and they disappear in a few weeks when a complete healing takes place.
Limitations of Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid surgery can treat drooping upper eyelids that make the patient look tired or may even restrict eye sight. Lower eye bag removal surgery can correct puffy bags under the eyes. Blepharoplasty surgery remove dark circles from under the eyes.
Risks of Eyelid Surgery
Significant complications from aesthetic eyelid or eye bag removal surgery are uncommon. Potential risks depending on patient include scarring, hematoma, infection, allergic reactions, changes in sense of feeling. After the surgery, there may be a feeling of dryness or irritation in the eye. It is important for patients to follow surgeon’s instructions before and after the surgery in order to reduce the potential risks of eyelid surgery or eye bag removal.
