What is Eyelid Surgery?

Skin loses laxity and firmness over time due to such reasons as gravity or heredity. Sagging starts earlier especially on body areas where the skin is thinner, eyelids, for instance. This is when the excess skin on upper eyelids must be removed through a horizontal incision, which is called an upper eyelid surgery in Turkey.


Upper Eyelid lift in Turkey gives you a youthful and charming look while lower eyelid surgery saves you from the exhausted and sleepy expression. Being among the safest cosmetic surgery operations abroad, blepharoplasty is carried out by talented plastic surgeons at a reasonable eyelid surgery cost in Turkey.


Being a minimally invasive procedure, upper eyelid surgery is carried out under local anesthesia and takes only half an hour. On the other hand, it takes approximately one hour to perform lower eyelid surgery, where the excess skin and fat tissue under the eyes are removed to eliminate wrinkles and puffiness. Lower eyelid surgery in Turkey is performed under general anesthesia in contrary to upper eyelid surgery as it is more complicated.

Types of Eyelid Surgeries

There is not only one standard technique used to perform blepharoplasty surgeries. The technique is decided based on your current problems and needs and your doctor’s preference. There are mainly two types of eyelid surgery carried out in Turkey:


Upper Blepharoplasty in Turkey

It is an intervention that is performed through micro-incisions on the natural crease of the upper eyelids to remove skin and excess fat caused by aging or heredity. The objective of this intervention is to give patients a more rested and rejuvenated appearance.

Lower Blepharoplasty in Turkey

It is an intervention that is performed to remove under-eye bags. It is carried out through an external incision along the lash line, which effectively prevents scarring.
In cases where patients have both sagging upper eyelids and under-eye bags, upper and lower eyelid surgery abroad can be performed at the same time as a combined surgery.


There are two more popular types of eyelid surgery which have to be mentioned:

  • Almond Eye Surgery
  • Asian Eye Surgery


Almond Eye Surgery

Almond eye procedure is a procedure very popular amongst Hollywood stars, and the celebrities all over the world. Depending on the ancestry, almond eyes are reckoned to be more beautiful, captivating and young looking. Almond Eye procedure creates a bit higher lateral canthus with the lower eyelids sitting precisely at the lower border of the iris with no scleral appearing. So basically, the eye is slightly pulled upward to make it look bigger and to make the eyes look deeper.


Asian Eyelid Surgery

Asians and people with Asian roots generally have single eyelids, so they don’t have visible folds and creases in their upper eyelids. This feature causes eyes to look smaller, puffy or a tired look. Asian eyelid surgery generally includes a small incision made in the upper eyelid from which the excess tissue containing fat and skin will be removed. With this incision, an eyelid fold is imitated. Asian eyelid surgery is designed to keep ethnic origin and glamorise the face and eye shape at the same time.


Eyelid Surgery Results

Eyelid surgery results are visible immediately after surgery. It is normal to have swelling for three to four weeks. Scars may appear pink in the first few months; however, they will gradually disappear until they become an almost invisible clear line. The surgeon also prescribes healing and scar creams, which will support eyelid surgery recovery. As long as patients follow the post-operative instructions, the surgery does not cause any complications. The results of upper and lower eyelid surgery in Turkey, a younger and fresh appearance, remain for years; in many cases the results are permanent.


After your eyelid surgery in Turkey, you will have achieved:
• Youthful look
• Natural and beautiful looking eyelids
• Highly increased self-esteem

Eyelid Surgery Patient Reviews

Feeney, Turkey

I decided on the clinic because of the reviews and price. I have had a facelift, upper/lower eyes, and neck. I can’t fault the care. From being met at the airport to a host taking me to the hospital from the hotel. The hotel is comfy and clean but there isn’t a lot to do on foot around it. I go home tomorrow after a week so I am still healing but happy with the work. I would say take all the medication given and use the creams. Sleep on your back slightly angled. I didn’t realize I would be bruised for quite so long but I think it will all be worth it. Bring reading material and an iPad, WiFi connection is excellent.

Care was excellent before, during and after.


Neisa, Ireland

I had lower eyelid surgery with this clinic and I was very impressed with the service and the professionalism of the staff at the clinic. I was a bit nervous at first but when I met the doctor, he made me feel at ease and relaxed. My surgery was very successful and my results are fabulous already.

Overall, it was a great experience. All people in the clinic were friendly and caring. The hospital was clean, the hotel was comfortable and close to clinic. If you are looking for a best quality treatment with a great price, Turkey is the right place.
Thank you to all staff, you are all great!!


G, Turkey

I did eyelid surgery and breast implants with lift and nose reshaping and I am happy with the results. It was good decision to go to Istanbul and I also recommended a lot of my friends to book with Clinic Center.

My surgery went well and I am happy with results. I only didn’t like the hotel housekeeping but the hospital and nurses and doctor are amazing. Thank you and I will come back for more.
