This 50-year-old woman noted heavy hooding of her upper eyelids with the skin resting on her eyelashes. She felt that she always looked tired and that this appearance aged her facial appearance. She underwent upper blepharoplasty which involves removal of excess skin and fatty tissue from the upper eyelid. The results can be very dramatic, freshening the appearance of the upper eyelid and rejuvenating the facial appearance. Sometimes, this procedure alone is sufficient even with some degree of brow drooping. While brow lifting is sometimes added to this procedure, it is often unnecessary. Many women notice that the first sign of excess upper eyelid skin becomes apparent in applying mascara where the excess skin prevents accurate placement of the make up. This patient was very pleased with the improvements that this relatively simple procedure made. Upper blepharoplasty is generally well tolerated and only entails an approximately two-week recovery. It is usually very cost-effective and can sometimes be done with light sedation or even local anesthetic alone.
