Upper Eyelid Surgery, also known as Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty is the gold standard to correct eyelid hooding, sagging, bulging and tired-looking eyes. During a short operation (normally less than 1 hour), excess skin and/or fat is removed from the upper eyelid to create a fresher and more youthful appearance. The incisions are made along the natural crease of the eyelid and are virtually invisible once fully healed.
Aesthetic outcomes can be enhanced when combined with other treatments such as CO2 laser, Morpheus 8 or chemical peels. Intense sun exposure should be avoided one month following treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
By making an incision along the natural eyelid skin fold, it is possible to remove skin and fat and leave only a fine, discrete scar along the natural skin crease of the eye. Excess upper eyelid skin can lead to functional problems in the eye; causing a loss of peripheral vision, especially in the outer and upper parts of the visual field. Initial bruising and swelling resolve in as little as one to two weeks, however, the final outcome of the surgery may not be seen for several weeks.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF UPPER EYELID BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty restores the field of vision, as well as the natural youthful beauty of the eye. By removing excess skin and fat, the eyelid will appear smooth and better defined, giving a more youthful appearance while often improving peripheral vision and eyelid fatigue. External skin resurfacing with a chemical peel or laser resurfacing treatment may be possible at the same time to improve the appearance of crepey skin.
