What is Eyelid Aesthetics?

Eyelid aesthetics or blepharoplasty is a set of surgical procedures performed by a plastic surgeon to remove sagging skin and excess muscle tissue and to tighten the tissues around the eyes, applied to the lower and upper eyelids.

With the advancement of age, sagging of the skin naturally occurs due to the effect of gravity. Parallel to this process, findings such as bagging on the eyelids, loosening of the skin, discoloration, relaxation, and wrinkles occur. Factors such as exposure to sunlight, air pollution, irregular sleep, excessive smoking and alcohol use accelerate the aging process of the skin.

What are the Symptoms of Eyelid Aging?

The skin is normally elastic. But as you age, its elasticity gradually decreases. As a result of the loss of elasticity in the facial skin, the excess skin is first collected on the eyelids. Therefore, the first signs of aging appear on the eyelids. Age-related changes in the eyelids cause a tired, dull and old appearance in the person. Some of the signs of aging seen in the lower and upper eyelids;
  • Bagging and discoloration under the eyes
  • Lower upper eyelid
  • Wrinkles and sagging of the eyelid skin
  • Crow’s feet lines around the eyes
  • It can be listed as a tired facial expression.
The excess skin on the eyelids causes drooping of the upper eyelid. This lowness can sometimes be so much that it prevents vision. In this case, it is necessary to treat this condition functionally. Sometimes drooping eyebrows and forehead are accompanied by droopy eyelids. In this case, there is an aesthetically worse appearance. For those who want to have blepharoplasty surgery for aesthetic or functional reasons, eyelid aesthetics can be performed only on the upper eyelid or lower eyelid, or both can be applied depending on the need. Blepharoplasty is often performed together with brow lift, forehead lift and endoscopic midface surgeries.

At What Age Is Eyelid Aesthetics Performed?

Eyelid aesthetics are mostly performed by individuals over the age of 35. Because the signs of aging on the eyelids often begin to appear after these ages. But it is possible for anyone with a medical need to have it done at any age. Surgery cannot stop the ongoing aging of the eyelids; but it lasts for 7-8 years. After the surgery, the tired facial expression of the person leaves its place to a lively and serene appearance.
