Upper Blepharoplasty Gives Crisper-appearing Eyelids, North Carolina
This 41-year-old woman felt that she always looked tired and that her eyes betrayed her age. She desired a crisper look to her upper eyelids. She did not want extensive surgery just improvement in the facial appearance. Upper blepharoplasty was performed with nice improvement and she feels much more refreshed looking. Upper blepharoplasty involves a crescent like excision of redundant excess eyelid skin and also to some degree, removal of some protuberant fat pads which can add to the puffiness of the upper eyelids. The procedure can be done with general anesthesia, sedation or in some cases, even under local anesthesia. Recovery is relatively rapid with suture removal performed by the end of 1 week and ability to wear makeup again at 2 weeks. The scars are usually imperceptible as the skin is very thin and tends to heal very nicely. Upper eyelids have natural crease lines which the typical scar falls into, making them minimally noticeable. Upper eyelid surgery is a very powerful tool to restore youthfulness to the upper faceMore
