Blepharoplasty (eyelids surgery)

When is a cosmetic blepharoplasty indicated?

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 the 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 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 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?

  • Antibiotics
  • Anti-inflammatories to reduce swelling and discomfort level
  • Elevating your head and use cold compresses for the first 48 hours to reduce swelling
  • Physical activity is restricted for 7 days
