What Is Blepharoplasty?

Upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid lift, is a commonly performed procedure that involves removing excess skin and excess puffiness or bags from the upper eyelids. The end result is a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

Why Get an Upper Blepharoplasty?

The eyes are often referred to as the windows to the soul. They are the first thing that people notice about each other and also are one of the most powerful means of non-verbal communication. When there is extra skin or puffiness of the eyes, the face takes on a fatigued appearance that can make the individual appear excessively aged and tired. The remedy for this condition is blepharoplasty.

How is Blepharoplasty Performed?

The procedure may be done under sedation or even under local anesthesia and takes less than an hour to complete. The incisions are hidden in the natural-occurring eyelid crease. The extra skin is removed and the fat compartments that contribute to the aged and tired appearance are removed. The methods used for a particular individual depends on that individual’s needs.

Recovery After Upper Eyelid Lift Surgery

The recovery typically takes about a week, although bruising and swelling can persist for a longer period of time.

When Can I Return to Work After Blepharoplasty?

Most patients can resume work within 6-10 days and normal activities within 1-2 weeks.
