What are the different types of blepharoplasty?
Generally, whether in Turkey or elsewhere, there are two types of intervention that correct the eyelids:
Upper eyelid surgery
Droopy eyelids are manifested by a sagging of the upper eyelid, characterized by an accumulation of fat and skin in the mobile hollow.

A lower blepharoplasty can play the role of a temporal lift to raise the eyebrows.
What is blepharoplasty in Turkey?
It is a facial surgery performed under local or general anesthesia, so, before entering the operating room, it is mandatory to do one or two medical consultations in order to define the areas to be treated around the eyes.

For hospitalization, it is between 24 and 48 hours.
The main surgical gestures of the plastic surgeon are:
For upper eyelids.

Who are the best candidates for an eye surgery?
It is obvious that this plastic surgery aims to beautify the exhausted and weighed down look. Therefore, it is intended for people with sagging skin around their eyes, or who want to prevent this sagging. Dark and hollow wrinkles are also eliminated by lower blepharoplasty.
Does this operation leave scars?
Like any surgery, eyelid plastic surgery requires the application of certain incisions to get rid of excess skin. However, the incisions made are very fine and camouflaged, either by the natural folds of the eyes, or flush with the eyelash. The scars dissipate quickly, and the sutures used are resorbable.
Can a face lift be performed blepharoplasty?

Wearing sunglasses is necessary to protect against U.V rays for 2 weeks.
Contact lenses should be avoided for 3 weeks while the bruises and redness of the eyes disappear.

After blepharoplasty, rare complications can be reported, such as:
• Epidermal cysts.
• Lagophthalmos (when it is difficult to close the eyelids).
• Eye swelling.
But these complications, without neglecting them, can in no way call into question the interest, the necessity and the importance of a blepharoplasty Turkey on the rejuvenation of the eyelids performed in a specialized clinic and by competent surgeons.
How to evaluate the durability of the result?
Blepharoplasty in Turkey is an operation offering extraordinary and above all long-lasting results.
However, it does not stop the natural aging process. Therefore, the sagging skin of the eyes may reappear after 10 years of the operation and a second could be considered, in this case.
