What is "Blepharoplasty"?

Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is a plastic surgery that corrects age-related changes and congenital aesthetic defects of the eyelids.

What causes eyelids to droop?

Natural aging in most people causes overhanging of the eyelids, and in some people it has genetic and hereditary backgrounds.


What are the results of treatment of drooping eyelids?

  • This will allow the patients to quickly get a young and beautiful look and in people with heavily drooping eyelids, it improves vision.
  • Drooping eyelids can cause difficulty for women when applying makeup. Blepharoplasty helps solve this problem.

What are the complications after blepharoplasty?

This procedure is one of the least complicated and safest operations with a low risk, but one of its side effects is that the eyelid may remain open due to excessive removal of the eyelids. The probability of this problem is very low and depends on the skillfullness and experience of the surgeon.

What is included in the postoperative care following blepharoplasty?

  • Keep your head and neck upper than the lower torso while sleeping in order to reduce swelling,
  • Reduce your salt intake.
  • Avoid applying make-up to the eyes and eyelids for two weeks.
  • Avoid smoking for two weeks. Alcohol consumption is also prohibited during this period.
  • You can take a shower after 24 hours, but you can not wash your head for up to 4 days.
  • Make sure to wear a bandage for the first 4 days. Remove it on the 5th day and apply tetracycline ointment on the scar and continue until the 7th day, when you come to the clinic to remove the stitches. On the 7th day mske contact with the clinic's secretary in order to make an appointment for your suture removal.
  • You can return to work 3-4 days after the operation.
  • Start using the regenerating cream 2 weeks after the operation. You can use the Fotona laser installation to reduce scar tissue onr month after the procedure. (The first session is free for our clients).
  • Wear large sunglasses just to avoid squeezing your eyes because of the sunlight.
  • Take your medications correctly and at the right time. Each of them should be swallowed completely.
  • Take Anaheal 500 tablets 2 times a day after meals (morning and night). The use of vitamin C or natural pineapple can also be beneficial.
  • During the first 24 hours after surgery, apply ice on the eyes for 10-15 minutes. Then wait for 15 minutes and repeat this several times a day. For the next 24 hours, use a clean and warm towel in the same way. Repeat this several times during the day.

Everything you need to know about blepharoplasty recovery

  • Do not forget that bending, crying, gazing, prolonged use of gadgets (tablets, smartphones, laptops), books and TV put a lot of pressure on the eyes.
  • Avoid physical activities that increase blood pressure.
  • You don not need to abstain from eating, butyou should limit intake of products high in salt.
  • You must not wear contact lenses for up to 4 weeks, but you can use glasses.
  • In the first few weeks, you may feel like the eyelids are being stretched. This is normal and will pass.
  • Swelling and bruising can persist for up to two weeks. Within 4 weeks after surgery, they gradually decrease and the wounds heal.
  • The result of blepharoplasty is a laborious process, and the final outcome can be evaluated in a year. After 6 months, the scar tissue improves and after healing only a pink mark remains. After a year, the scar completely fades and disappears. (We are with you to shorten the healing process with the best laser device in the world).
  • In the end, it should be noted that the quality of the final result of eyelid surgery and its significant impact on the beauty of the face are mostly associated with the recovery period after the operation. At this time, do not rush to urgently see the result of your operation and carefully take care of your eyes.


This procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia.

The recovery period will be only one week. There will remain small and imperceptible traces of the stitches. Bruises and swelling will last from 2 to 4 weeks.
