Do you feel the appearance of your eyes (more specifically the upper eyelids) makes you look older than you actually are? Over time, the elasticity of our eyelid skin begins to diminish, frequently leading to drooping of the upper lids as well as the formation of creases and wrinkles, puffiness, and various other signs of aging that can add years to our facial aesthetic. In some instances, the excess skin can even obstruct our upper field of vision.
For individuals experiencing concerns about the appearance of the upper lids, upper blepharoplasty can be performed to rejuvenate the look of the eyes. Also called upper eyelid surgery or upper eyelid lift, this popular procedure can be customized to help:
Eliminate excess skin causing drooping of the upper lids
Excise pockets of fat in the upper lids
Reduce bagginess and/or puffiness of the upper lids
Smooth out upper eyelid lines, wrinkles, and/or creases
Improve upper visual field obstruction caused by drooping lids
In addition to these benefits, upper eyelid surgery can often be performed in conjunction with lower blepharoplasty for a more inclusive rejuvenation that also targets under-eye bags, fine lines on the lower lids, and dark circles beneath the eyes.
