Upper Eyelid Lift



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.

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.

What to Expect

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.

The recovery is typically about a week, although bruising and swelling can persist for a longer period of time. Most patients can typically resume work by about 6-10 days and can resume normal activities by 1-2 weeks.
