An eye aesthetics operation focuses on reducing any visible imperfections of the skin area of the eye, including the eyelid, that are usually associated with the aging process.
The benefits of an eye aesthetics operation
There is an expression which says: “you smile with your eyes”, and it is so very true. Our eyes can say so much about us, and when we are young, all is good. With age and the softening of the skin through losing its elasticity, the shape, and look of our eyes changes. In addition, lines can appear at the outside corners of our eyes, which are affectionately referred to as crow’s feet.
With a simple operation to remove excess skin around your eyes, or specifically the eyelids (blepharoplasty) you can turn back the clock and your eyes can look as youthful and vibrant as they did when you were in your twenties. Not only will your appearance change, subtly, for the better, but experience tells us that even such a simple operation can have a tremendous effect on your overall sense of well-being and self-confidence.
We all want to look as young as we can, we want to look our best, and we don’t have to wait until we need a total facelift before we turn to surgical procedures to regain a more youthful look. Eye aesthetic procedures are one of the most common first plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery procedures that our clients at Maccenta Istanbul undergo.
What is involved with an eye aesthetics procedure or ‘eye lift’ operation?
The procedure is usually performed under a local anaesthetic, though in certain cases the procedure will be performed under a general anaesthetic. Incisions are strategically made in places where any faint residual scarring will be imperceptible – this is along the top of the lower eye lid, along a fold in the upper eyelid, or along the eyebrow above each eye. Depending on the nature of the aesthetic procedure, skin may be removed, fat removed, or filler introduced, all with the express purpose of reducing wrinkles and lines through the tightening of the skin.
You can be reassured that as with all facial cosmetic procedures, the aim is to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and sagging, but in as minimally invasive manner as possible. Particularly with eyelids, it is vital that the very minimum amount of skin is removed to ensure that there is no alteration to their function.
If you have travelled from afar and have opted an all-inclusive package, you will be collected from your hotel and taken to the hospital for your procedure and, once discharged, you will be driven back to your hotel as part of our all-inclusive service.
Eye Aesthetics surgery as part of a multiple cosmetic procedure
More and more often we perform eye aesthetics surgery as part of a multiple cosmetic procedure. This type of surgery, including blepharoplasty, can be performed alongside rhinoplasty or otoplasty, as examples.

Cosmetic eye surgery – post-operative care
This type of cosmetic surgery is relatively minor and is performed on an outpatient basis. This means that you can return to your hotel immediately after the procedure has been completed. The next day you will have a consultation with the surgeon for him to check the results of your procedure.
For the first few days you will need to keep the wounds clean and dry. You are also advised to avoid direct sunlight for approximately a fortnight after the operation – the wearing of sunglasses is advised during this period. It can take up to a month for the majority of the healing process to take place, and up to three months for everything to return to normal.
