Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or eye lift, is surgery performed on the eyelids for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons. An example of a therapeutic reason for undergoing a blepharoplasty is increasing the visual field of view. Aging and environmental factors can cause unpreventable changes to the eyes. As skin loses its elasticity and firmness, the upper and lower eyelids begin to appear saggy. Given that the eyes have a significant effect on the face’s appearance and youthfulness, a blepharoplasty can greatly assist in alleviating this problem. During an upper eyelid blepharoplasty, its skin, muscle, and fat tissue are removed. Ptosis, or “droopy eyelid”, can also be treated with this procedure. On the other hand, a lower eyelid blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the face by treating “puffy eyes”, giving it a youthful and radiant look.
How Is Blepharoplasty Performed?
Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure, meaning that you will not need to be hospitalized after the surgery. It is usually performed with local anesthesia. To reduce anxiety and keep you relaxed, a sedative may be prescribed. Surgery on all four eyelids (upper and lower eyelids of both eyes) takes about 2 hours. The location of the incisions is determined depending on the patient’s conditions. Nonetheless, the surgeon will strive to reduce the scar’s visibility as much as possible. Your doctor may advise you to return a week later to remove the stitches. The final results of the blepharoplasty will appear approximately one month after the procedure.

What Types of Surgeons Perform Blepharoplasty in Iran?
There are two types of surgeons that can perform a blepharoplasty: general surgeons, after completing a plastic and cosmetic surgery fellowship (subspecialty), and ophthalmologists who have a fellowship in the field of plastic and restorative surgery.
