Blepharoplasty surgery includes upper and lower eyelid surgery bilaterally.

It is limited to the upper eyelids (at the age of 35 and above) when we want to correct only the loose skin of the upper eyelid and not to interfere with the lower eyelids.

In the same way, it is limited to the lower eyelids when we want to correct only the bags on the lower eyelids.

Blepharoplasty – Eyelid Plastic Procedure The procedure of blepharoplasty is very simple. On the morning of the operation, the necessary standard pre-operative check-up is performed. Then, eyelid surgery is performed with the help of local anesthesia or intoxication. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty corrects excess skin and removes it. At the same time, it removes the fat that can project the inner corner of the eye. In this way, the inner corner of the eye is emphasized more, resulting in a more youthful look. The surgical incision – scar is placed on the natural crease of the upper eyelid, and is not visible. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty removes excess fat while redistributing the volumes, correcting the tear trough deformity and skin laxity (skin removal). The surgical incision – scar is placed near the eyelashes of the lower eyelid, and is not visible. Plastic surgery of the lower eyelid can be done with an incision inside the eyelid when we only want to correct the bags and not interfere with the skin. The interested party leaves the clinic in the afternoon of the same day. Bruising (lasting 3 – 15 days), or edema – swelling (lasting 3 – 5 days) in the area around the eyelids may occur. The stitches come out on the 5th day, and it is recommended that the patient wear sunglasses for the first time.

Recovery – Recovery Time after Blepharoplasty
Recovery after blepharoplasty is short, and the person concerned can immediately (3-4 days) return to his/her occupations with some precautions.

Additional Information – Frequently Asked Questions about Blepharoplasty
With blepharoplasty surgery, we cannot correct dark circles due to the transparency of the skin and the presence of a venous network. However, it is possible that they will improve, due to the improvement of the blood supply in the area. Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet) are not corrected with blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty can also be combined with other operations, such as eyebrow lift, canthopexy and small mid-face lift.

Side Effects – Complications of Blepharoplasty
Possible side effects and complications are rare, including bleeding, excessive skin or fat removal, conjunctivitis, etc. Good surgical technique and postoperative monitoring almost eliminate the occurrence of complications.

Blepharoplasty results
The results of blepharoplasty are permanent and last over time.

Cost – Price of Blepharoplasty
The cost of blepharoplasty depends on whether other operations will be performed at the same time, such as canthopexy, eyebrow lift or mid-face lift. In any case, it adapts to the expectations and wishes of the interested party.


Blepharoplasty in women and men is a very common operation in Plastic Surgery. With blepharoplasty, the plastic surgeon provides a solution to the loosening of the skin of the upper eyelid (feeling of heaviness in the eyes, difficulty with makeup for women, dermal chalazion for men) and in the bags, and in the relaxation of the lower eyelid.

Extra blepharoplasty tip:

Upper eyelid plastic surgery is best combined with eyebrow lift for optimal results.
