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.

A good candidate for blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is someone who has sagging or excess skin around their eyes, which can cause an aged or tired appearance. Some other common reasons for blepharoplasty include:

  • Puffy or baggy eyelids due to excess fat deposits
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
  • Loose or sagging skin that impairs vision
  • Deep creases or wrinkles under the eyes

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.

Upper Eyelid Lift Recovery

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



The results of blepharoplasty can vary depending on the individual's specific concerns and the extent of the procedure performed. However, in general, the surgery aims to improve the appearance of the eyes by removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids.

Some potential results of blepharoplasty include:

  • A more youthful and rested appearance
  • Smoother, tighter skin around the eyes
  • Reduction or elimination of under-eye bags or puffiness
  • Improvement in vision if sagging eyelids were obstructing it

The results of blepharoplasty can last for many years, although the aging process will continue to affect the area around the eyes. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, avoiding smoking, and protecting your skin from sun damage, you can help prolong the results of your blepharoplasty surgery.

  • Physical Exam: The surgeon will perform a physical exam of your eyes and surrounding areas to evaluate the extent of the procedure needed. They will assess the skin's elasticity, fat deposits, muscle tone, and any other factors that may impact the surgery's success.
  • Discussion of Options: The surgeon will discuss the various surgical options available and which approach would be best suited to your individual needs. They will explain the potential risks and benefits of each approach and help you make an informed decision.
  • Pre-operative Instructions: If you decide to proceed with the surgery, the surgeon will provide pre-operative instructions, such as medications to avoid, and specific steps to follow to prepare for the surgery.
  • Cost: The surgeon will provide information on the cost of the procedure, which can vary depending on the extent of the surgery, the surgeon's experience, and the geographic location.

Overall, the consultation is an opportunity for you to discuss your concerns, learn about the procedure, and ask any questions you may have. The surgeon will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that meets your goals and addresses your unique needs.
