Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper Blepharoplasty: Focuses on the upper eyelid, addressing drooping skin, excess fat deposits, or both. This can create a hooded appearance or obstruct vision. During the procedure, a small incision is made hidden within the natural crease of the eyelid. Excess skin and/or fat are removed or repositioned, lifting the eyelid and creating a more alert and youthful look.

Pros: Reduces sagging upper eyelids, improves vision obstructed by drooping skin, creates a more awake and refreshed appearance.

Cons: Potential risks include dry eyes, temporary blurred vision, bleeding, infection, and scarring. May require local or general anesthesia.

Alternatives: Botox injections can temporarily lift brows for a non-surgical approach.

Recovery Time: Takes 1-2 weeks for swelling and bruising to subside. Avoid strenuous activity and eye strain for a few weeks.

Disclaimer: Consulting a board-certified ophthalmic plastic surgeon or dermatologist is crucial to discuss candidacy, potential complications, and whether upper blepharoplasty alone or combined with lower blepharoplasty is the best approach.
