Upper Blepharoplasty or "Eyelid Lift" De- Ages in Raleigh, NC

Procedure Details

This 57 year old woman noted significant excess skin in her upper eyelids. It made her look and feel tired all the time. She remarked that it was especially noticeable when she was applying eye makeup. She underwent an upper blepharoplasty. This is a relatively simple procedure where excess skin and some protruding fat is removed with a scar that is usually barely noticeable. The upper eyelid skin is thin and scars well with the scar concealed in a normal skin crease. Additional maneuvers, such fixing the brow laterally and partially removing frowning muscles through the eyelid incision can be added to improve results. Recovery is usually fairly rapid with most patients taking a week or so off from work as there is some swelling and bruising associated with the procedures. This one powerful procedure is a very effective technique that" de-ages" the face. It makes the eyes appear brighter and younger. While Botox and other neuromodulators can improve frown lines, forehead lines,crows feet and sometimes brow position, upper blepharoplasty is necessary when skin excess overcomes the ability of non invasive measures to achieve a more youthful eye appearance.
