Frequently Asked Questions

How Do The Eyelids Become Deformed?

Either genetics or age related changes can give the patient a permanently tired look and aged expression, these changes can be reversed using Blepharoplasty in Cyprus. The skin over the eyes is the thinnest on the body and is therefore the first skin to wrinkle. Over time, this deformation becomes exaggerated as the midface bones retract causing the position of the eyebrows, eyelids, eye muscles and the fat layer to change. Whilst short-term temporary procedures such as Botox can work, Blepharoplasy in Cyprus is a permanent solution. By removing the excess skin and herniated fat tissues, Dr Celikkaya can restore a younger livelier look for the eyes. Where excessive sagging of the eyelid has occurred impacting on the quality of the patients vision, this procedure can have a positive impact on the patients vision. All incisions made during the blepharoplasty are hidden within the natural creases of the eyelid and remain invisible.

Guidelines For Blepharoplasty in Cyprus

The following guidelines apply for all types of blepharoplasty in Cyprus. Use of all blood thinners should be stopped (under guidance from Dr Celikkaya) Smoking should stop from the date of the operation until 10-14 days after the treatment. Any activities that will increase blood pressure should also be halted. You will be able to return home on the day of your blepharoplasty As the area of where the incisions are made is not visible there will be no visible scars from the procedure. If both lower and upper blepharoplasty are performed together, the total operating time is around 90 minutes Some swelling might occur but should subside within a few days It is recommended that you rest for 2 days after the blepahroplasty and sleep on a high pillow There are no age related restrictions for blepharoplasty in Cyprus Exposing the area to strong direct sunlight is not recommended after blepharoplasty in Cyprus, so if a summer holiday is planned, it would be best to avoid sun bathing. Blepharoplasty is frequently combined with other facial procedures such as the mini-lift and micro-lift

What are the main factors to be considered before an blepharoplasty in Cyprus?

As with all blepharoplasty in Cyprus, it is necessary to stop using blood thinners three weeks before the operation. In order to avoid problems during the healing period, it is advisable to limit smoking as early as 2 to 3 weeks.

What are the factors to be considered after the blepharoplasty in Cyprus?

After a blepharoplasty in Cyprus, thin short bands are placed in the operated area, but there is no need to close the eyes totally. During the healing period we advise patients to use a high pillow. Since this operation has a generally easy healing period, the patient can return to normal life after resting for one or two days. There may be a certain amount of swelling in the first few days following blepharoplasty.

When is an upper eyelid blepharoplasty necessary?

When we meet someone, the eyes are usually the first place we look, but time can be be cruel to the eye area and show up the first signs of aging. Excess skin on the upper eyelid can collect on top of the eyes, damaging the overall aesthetic of the eye area and sometimes even collapsing onto the eye and impacting vision. This can be resolved with a simple procedure, which not only brings back a youthful and vivid expression to the eyes, but also eliminates related vision disorders

What is the minimum age for blepharoplasty surgery?

There is no minimum or maximum age limits specified for blepharoplasty in Cyprus. Minor deformations occurring around the eyes at early ages can usually be solved by non-surgical procedures. However, as age advances or, as the level of deformation increases, non-surgical procedures become insufficient. In these cases, the only real solution is the eyelid surgery. There is no upper age limit specified for this surgery.

Are there any scars after blepharoplasty?

Excess skin from the upper eyelid is removed and sutured into the line that is already present in this area. If there is excess skin in the lower eyelid, the skin is opened up with a line just below the eyelashes, the herniated fat is removed and the lower eyelid is secured. No scars are visible since the suture line is kept just below the eyelashes.

What is the right timing for blepharoplasty in Cyprus?

There is no particularly favorable time for blepharoplasty in Cyprus, although the patient’s eyes should not be directly exposed to sunlight so sun bathing may not be advisable. It is possible to do this surgery at any time with regular sunglass usage after the blepharoplasty in Cyprus.

Can a blepharoplasty in Cyprus be combined with different operations?

Blepharoplasty in Cyprus can be performed alone or in collaboration with other facial operations such as a face lift. Blepharoplasty on its own provides a certain amount of revitalization to the upper area of the face, but integrating this with surgery on the forehead, brows and any sagging areas can provide very satisfying results for the patient.
