Eyelid surgery 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. Many of our specialists in plastic surgery in Turkey also provide services in the field of blepharoplasty.
The main reason for the need for blepharoplasty is the drooping and sagging of the eyelids as a result of aging and sagging of the skin. 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.
Is Blepharoplasty Necessary?
The excess skin on the eyelids causes drooping of the upper eyelid, and it is possible to solve this problem with blepharoplasty. This drooping situation 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 a brow lift, forehead lift, and midface surgeries.
Blepharoplasty Performed To Who?
Since the signs of aging on the eyelids often begin to appear after age of 35 y.o. blepharoplasty is mostly performed to individuals over that age, but there are no age restrictions for operation, 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 approximately for 7-8 years. After the surgery, the tired facial expression of the person leaves its place to a lively and serene appearance.
Signs of Aging on the Eyelid

Under-eye bags and discoloration
