Upper Eyelid Surgery
By NewBeauty Editors |
Blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids can reposition fat and muscle and reduce excess skin to correct the drooping and puffiness that can make a person look older and more tired and may also interfere with vision.
The procedure requires an incision that follows the natural contour of the upper eyelid and may extend to the outer corner. Once it has fully healed, the incision line is easily concealed with makeup. Over time, it will fade to a faint line that is camouflaged in your natural upper eyelid crease.
After the procedure, the upper lids look more open and alert, and people don’t look sad, which makes a dramatic difference in the overall look of the face. Blepharoplasty (both upper and lower) can be performed under twilight sedation (it can also be performed under general anesthesia) and has a fairly easy and quick recovery.
Hands down, upper blepharoplasty is the most effective way to correct an upper eyelid that has become slack. To avoid a sunken in or skeletal look, it’s important that not too much fat is removed.
