What is Upper Eyelid Surgery?
The aging of eyes are much faster than other parts of the face since the eyes are constantly moving. One of the main symptoms of aging is droopy eyelids. In many cases, sagging eyebrows and forehead are accompanied with the natural aging process. These conditions can reduce the field of vision and cause discomfort in daily life. Upper eyelid surgery, also known as the upper blepharoplasty, can correct the sagging skin, tissue, and weakened muscle in the upper eye area. The primary goal is to remove excess skin and sometimes fat or orbicularis muscle with the intent of restoring the upper eyelids to a more youthful appearance.
Who is it Recommended For?
1. For those who have droopy eyelids due to aging
2. For those who have severely droopy eyelids which disturb vision
Benefits of the Upper Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is a relatively safe and proven operation. Because the eyes are the focal point on the face, the procedure may achieve anything from a subtle to dramatic improvement in a person's appearance, depending on the starting point and patient preferences. A reasonable expectation is that you will obtain about an 80 to 90% improvement.
How is the Upper Eyelid Surgery Performed?
Upper blepharoplasty uses a full incision along the crease to remove excess fat and sagging skin for a youthful eye appearance. If necessary, ptosis correction is performed in conjunction to strengthen the weakened eye opening muscles.
