Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
Conveniently located to serve Newport Beach and Beverly Hills
Upper lid blepharoplasty, also referred to as upper eyelid surgery or an eye lift, is a surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that can restore the appearance of drooping and wrinkled upper eyelids. Upper lid blepharoplasty can help to restore the youthful appearance of the eyes and face, as well as restore vision that has been obstructed by sagging upper eyelids.
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Raymond Lee has extensive training in aesthetic facial procedures and is one of the best facial plastic surgeons in Newport Beach and Beverly Hills. He can provide you with outstanding care and results.
The Benefits of Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
This procedure is needed when the excess skin and internal muscle above your eyelid starts to stretch and cover your natural eyelid crease. This skin may even stretch or sag so far as to touch your eyelashes. There may even be difficulty seeing, makeup may become hard to apply, and a tired look arises. Also sometimes a fatty deposit in the central corner of the eye develops and requires removal.
Good Candidates for Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
Good candidates should be in good overall health and should have realistic goals and expectations regarding the results of their procedure. In General, individuals who are unhappy with the droopy or aged appearance of their upper eyelids are good candidates for surgery. Patients may also be interested in lower lid blepharoplasty to eliminate puffy bags underneath the eyes and restore the appearance of the lower eyelids for more comprehensive rejuvenation. Dr. Lee can let you know if you are a good candidate for upper lid blepharoplasty during the consultation process at our office in Newport Beach or Beverly Hills.
How Upper Lid Blepharoplasty Is Performed
The surgical technique is rather simple. The excess skin is carefully measured out and marked. A hidden incision in the natural eyelid crease is made to remove the marked excess skin. Fatty tissue may also be removed. Small sutures are used to close the incision.
Upper Lid Blepharoplasty Recovery
Some swelling, bruising, and discomfort is to be expected during the recovery period following your upper lid blepharoplasty. Applying ice packs to the area can help to reduce and manage swelling. These issues should begin to subside after a few days. Recovery is rather quick and 5-7 days off may be all that is needed. More strenuous activity will need to be avoided for a few weeks.
