Although Dermatologists, general Plastic surgeons, and ENT all perform eyelid lifts (blepharoplasties), Oculoplastic surgeons super-specialize in this area. This means we understand the anatomy with incredible detail; We carefully measure each millimeter to be excised and remove only the top layer of skin, leaving the important muscle (orbicularis) intact--and able to tightly close the eyelid. Other surgeons often damage or remove the orbicularis, leading to blinking problems later in life. We don't believe in radically transforming someone's appearance, but instead in restoring their natural, youthful anatomy. With upper blepharoplasty, this means creating an eyelid crease in precisely the correct location for their anatomy: not too high, nor too low.
Understanding Upper Blepharoplasty
Upper blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure addressing excess skin or fat on the upper eyelids. It aims to rejuvenate the upper face, improve vision obstructed by sagging skin, and enhance the eyelid's appearance.
Root Causes of Eyelid Changes
Eyelid changes, including sagging skin or fat deposits, occur due to aging, genetics, or other factors leading to a tired or aged appearance. Upper blepharoplasty aims to correct these issues.
Identifiable Effects and Symptoms
The procedure's effects include:
Removal of excess skin or fat from the upper eyelids.
Improvement in vision obstructed by sagging skin.
Enhanced eyelid appearance and a more refreshed look.
Effective Treatment Approach
During the surgery, excess skin or fat is removed from the upper eyelids, creating a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. The outpatient procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, resulting in minimal discomfort and swelling.
