What is upper blepharoplasty?

Upper eyelid surgery is a precision procedure in which a small section of eyelid skin is carefully removed to remove the excess skin and restore a more youthful, energetic appearance to the eyes and nearby tissues. The procedure is customized to match the unique condition of the patient, and may involve removing fat lodged in the region, muscle modification or other precision changes to restore a youthful appearance. Dr. Afrooz addresses every upper blepharoplasty procedure with the most advanced surgical techniques, and can resolve hooding, and fine-tuning eye symmetry to achieve a remarkably refreshed, healthy look. 

What is the procedure?

All upper eyelid lift surgeries are customized to match the individual condition of the patient. In general, the procedure involves administering intravenous sedation and local anesthesia to ensure a comfortable experience. Then a precise quantity of excess eyelid skin is meticulously removed, and the incision closed with delicate sutures. The tissues and fat may be repositioned to, with a conservative approach to ensure the outcome appears natural, not overdone. 

A consummate professional, Dr. Afrooz is often called upon as a featured speaker at national and international symposiums on facial plastic surgery. He works closely with each patient to help them achieve their personal aesthetic goals, bringing outstanding skills and artistry to upper eyelid blepharoplasty.

Am I a candidate for upper blepharoplasty?

If you are experiencing any of the following conditions, you may be a good candidate for this customized surgical procedure:

  • Hooded eyes
  • Sagging eyelid skin
  • You look tired, even when well rested
  • Difficulty applying cosmetics due to excess eyelid skin
  • Puffy upper eyelids
  • Impaired peripheral vision due to sagging skin

What is the recovery time after upper eyelid blepharoplasty?

The recovery time after upper eyelid surgery is typically short and uneventful. Initially, you can expect some swelling and bruising, which takes in the range of one to two weeks to face. You will need to protect your eyes from sun exposure during healing and take the time you need for your skin to heal. Set aside a week to ten days to recover, after which you should feel ready to reveal your refreshed look at work or other activities. The subtle changes to your look should not be obvious as having been achieved with surgery – a result of the precision approach of Dr. Afrooz.
