Upper Blepharoplasty

If you’re considering a way to rejuvenate your eyes and achieve a more alert and youthful appearance, Upper Blepharoplasty, offered at our Greenwich Village location, might be the perfect solution for you.

What is Upper Blepharoplasty? 

Upper Blepharoplasty, commonly referred to as an eyelid lift, is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove excess skin, fat, and sometimes muscle from the upper eyelids. The goal is to correct drooping eyelids that can make you look tired or obstruct your vision. This procedure is particularly popular among individuals who want to reverse signs of aging around the eyes.

How Does Upper Blepharoplasty Work? 

The process of Upper Blepharoplasty involves careful surgical precision. Here’s a simple breakdown of the steps:

  1. Consultation: First, you’ll have a consultation with our expert dermatologists. We’ll discuss your goals, evaluate your eyelids, and determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

    Preparation: On the day of the surgery, the target area will be cleaned, and local anesthesia will be applied to ensure your comfort.

    The Procedure: The surgeon makes fine incisions along the natural lines of your eyelids. Through these incisions, excess skin, fat, and muscle are removed as needed. The incisions are then closed with tiny sutures.

    Recovery: Post-procedure, you may experience swelling and bruising, but these typically subside within a week or two. Most patients return to normal activities within 10-14 days.

Who is a Good Candidate for Upper Blepharoplasty? 

Ideal candidates for Upper Blepharoplasty are those experiencing droopy or sagging eyelids, possibly impacting their vision or aesthetic appearance. It’s important for candidates to be in good general health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the outcome. While Upper Blepharoplasty is often sought for its cosmetic benefits, it also offers functional improvements, such as an unobstructed field of vision.

What Are the Expected Results? 

Patients often notice a significant improvement in the appearance of their eyes. The eyes look more open, refreshed, and youthful. While the results are long-lasting, it’s important to remember that Upper Blepharoplasty does not stop the aging process, and some may opt for additional treatments in the future.
