The most common upper eyelid complaint relates to heavy or drooping upper eyelids. These can make you look older than your age or even interfere with your eyesight.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty, also known as upper eyelid surgery or eye lift, is a very common surgical procedure performed to remove excess skin, fat or muscle from the upper eyelids for a more youthful appearance.
Typical candidates are men and women in good general health whose vision or aesthetic appearance is impacted by heavy, dropping or puffy eyelids. The procedure can be performed on its own or combined with a brow lift for additional correction.
To be considered a suitable candidate for this type of surgery, you should be in good general health and have realistic expectations.
Upper Blepharoplasty Surgery
An incision is made in upper eyelid, hidden within the natural crease lines that run above the eyelashes. Depending on the patient’s anatomy, the incisions might extend into the crow’s feet or laughter lines at the outer corners of the eyes.
Working through the preoperative markings, the surgeon will separate the skin from the subcutaneous layers and remove excess fat and trim any sagging muscle and skin for a smoother, rejuvenated appearance. The incisions will then be closed with very fine sutures.
Upper Blepharoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure, which means you can normally go home later the same day. The whole operation takes approximately one hour, and visible scarring will be minimal.
