What is a Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that works to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes and surrounding areas. This highly precise treatment addresses a range of concerns to either upper or lower eyelids, such as sagging skin or ptosis, excess fat, and drooping eyelids, to restore a more youthful and refreshed look.

Vision of Beauty

What is Upper Blepharoplasty?

Upper blepharoplasty is a specialized procedure that targets the upper eyelids exclusively. Precise incisions are made in the upper eyelid area, designed to suit the patient's unique anatomy, create a more lifted and awake look, and improve the look of hooded eyes. It can also be used as a functional treatment if a hooded eyelid has begun to obstruct vision.

Precise and Prepared

Your Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty Procedure

Upper blepharoplasty surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia combined with sedation, depending on the patient's preferences and the extent of the surgery. Dr. Harris will start by making precise incisions in the upper eyelid area that are expertly placed to minimize post-operative scarring. Then, excess skin, muscle, or fat that may be contributing to sagging or puffiness will be addressed. Finally, the incisions will be meticulously closed with fine sutures to create a tightened and smoother appearance. On average, the procedure typically lasts approximately one to two hours.
