Eyelid Lift Surgery

Eyelid lift in Turkey is a surgical procedure that tightens the eyelids by removing the sagging skin and accumulated fats from both lower and upper eyelids, and reshaping them to fit the appearance of the eyes. The procedure takes about two hours, if it involves both upper and lower eyelids.

It also has some low-risk side effects, such as swelling, but it disappears within one or two weeks. The results of the upper eyelid lasts for 5-7 years, while it is rare for the person to undergo the lower eyelid surgery again, because it lasts for a long time.

Eyelid Lift Stages

The eyelid lift has three basic stages:

  1. Anesthesia: to ensure that the patient is comfortable and does not feel any pain during the operation, the patient is given either a local or general anesthesia. Usually the doctor chooses the best type of anesthesia, which fits the patient.
  2. Surgical incision: In general, the incision lines are planned accurately so that the scars can be hidden within the natural lines of the eyelid. For the upper eyelid, the doctor tightens it by making a surgical incision within the natural lines of the eyelid, removing or repositioning the excess fat under the skin, as well as tightening of the muscles and getting rid of the sagging skin.For the lower eyelid, the incision is made under the lower lash line, to remove or reposition the fat consistently.
  3. Incision closing: The incision is closed by stitches, then removed after one week.
