What is Eyelid Surgery, Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic eyelid surgery applied to the upper and lower eyelids, where the tissues surrounding the eye are stretched, sagging skin and excess muscle tissue are removed. Blepharoplasty is performed by ophthalmologists.
Sagging of the skin occurs naturally due to aging and gravity. For these reasons, symptoms such as droopy eyelids , skin laxity, discolouration, loosing and wrinkles occur. Factors such as exposure to sunlight, air pollution, irregular sleep,excessive consumption of alcohol and regular smoking accelerate the aging process of the skin. The lower or upper eyelids affected by these processes gain the appearance they should have with blepharoplasty surgery.
In the pre-operative meetings with the patient, the appearance that the patient dreams of achieving and what the surgeon can do should be evaluated very well. A natural and youthful appearance should be achieved with surgery.
