Blepharoplasty (eyelids surgery)
When is a cosmetic blepharoplasty indicated?
A cosmetic eyelid surgery is indicated to improve and refresh your look, by giving a more youthful appearance.
What benefits does a conservative blepharoplasty have?
The main benefits of a conservative approach are obtained by treating only the specific concerns on the eyelids and periorbital area according to the patient’s requirement. A conservative blepharoplasty can be performed in order to just remove excess of skin, removing or adding fat and treating orbicular muscles. A blepharoplasty can be combined with a minimally invasive procedure like a brow lift to restore the position of the eyebrows, or eyelid Lipofilling to correct hollowness.
The main benefits you can obtain from Dr Bukret’s blepharoplasty are: natural results, minimal scars and a safe surgery with a short recovery period.
How long does a blepharoplasty surgery take?
The surgery takes 1 to 2 hours average.
What kind of anesthesia is used for blepharoplasty?
Although blepharoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia, in most cases it is necessary to do a deep sedation, since this procedure is frequently performed in conjunction with a Minimally Invasive Facelift or other facial surgery.
How long is the recovery time after having a blepharoplasty surgery?
There are bruises and swelling that subside in 7 to 10 days after blepharoplasty. After this period you will feel comfortable to do social activities.
What are the post-operative care measures?
- Antiinflamatories to reduce swelling and disconfort level
- Elevating your head and use cold compresses for the first 48 hours to reduce swelling
- Physical activity is restricted for 7 days
These pre and post-op care recommendations also apply for blepharoplasty
