Procedure of Blepharoplasty Surgery in Istanbul, Turkey

First, you will be asked to send your medical history and photos of your face. After an evaluation and an online consultation, your doctor will determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure and which type of blepharoplasty (upper, lower or transconjunctival) is recommended in your specific case. You will also talk about your expectations and the use of local or general anesthesia.

Upon arrival in Istanbul, you will go to the clinic for a comprehensive eyelid exam, during which your doctor will make sure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure you have chosen. The blepharoplasty will typically be performed the next day. In case, you opt for general anesthesia, keep in mind to don’t eat or drink after midnight the day before your surgery.

On the day of your procedure, a blood test will be performed. Your doctor will evaluate the test to see if everything is in order, and if so, you will be prepared for surgery (general or local anesthesia). The duration of the blepharoplasty procedure ranges from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours.

If you had local anesthesia, you can leave the clinic after 3-4 hours. Patients who had general anesthesia will need to stay in the hospital overnight. Please follow your doctor's instructions for aftercare.

You will come to the clinic the next day as well as 3 to 5 days later for a follow-up, during which your doctor will check your eyelids and remove the stitches.

Note: Some Patients want to make their eyes look larger and brighter, in a cat-shape, along with getting rid of excess skin in their eyelids, which is why they combine the procedure with Canthoplasty. See our dedicated article on Canthoplasty for more details.
