UPPER EYELID BLEPHAROPLASTY/ EYELID LIFT

“I cannot say enough about how satisfied I am with the surgery Dr. Sina performed removing excess skin from my eyelids. That skin really aged me and I can see that even more with the great results I have had. So meticulous and thorough, I had such an easy recovery with minimal (very minimal) bruising and swelling. I look years younger!”

For many people, one of the first signs of aging is the appearance of excess upper eyelid skin. Common complaints include looking tired or sad and an inability to apply make-up to the upper eyelids. An upper eyelid blepharoplasty or eyelid lift can address these issues with minimal downtime. 


What is an upper eyelid blepharoplasty or eyelid lift?

An upper blepharoplasty or eyelid lift is the surgical correction of excess skin, muscle or fat of the upper eyelids. 

As we age, the skin of the upper eyelids can become thin, redundant and droopy. These changes usually result in a tired and sad appearance. An upper blepharoplasty or eyelid lift will restore a refreshed and youthful appearance with minimal downtime. An upper blepharoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia in about 1 hour. The scar is hidden in the natural crease of the upper eyelid and patients can return to work in about 1 week. 


What are some of the benefits of an upper eyelid blepharoplasty?

As the popularity of social networks as well as of video conferencing and virtual meetings increases, many people are more aware of their appearance than ever. One of the sequelae of facial aging is the appearance of heavy upper eyelids resulting in a tired and sad appearance. An upper blepharoplasty or eyelid lift provides a more youthful, rested and alert appearance. It can improve self-confidence and, in some cases, restore visual field deficits caused by droopy upper eyelid skin. 


Who is a candidate for an upper eyelid blepharoplasty?

The ideal candidate for an upper eyelid blepharoplasty is anyone who is bothered by excess upper eyelid skin and is in good physical and mental health.
