What is Upper Blepharoplasty?

Achieving a more attractive look for sagging or drooping upper lids and even resolving vision obstruction caused by fat buildup in the area can be done through an Upper Blepharoplasty - commonly referred to as eyelid lift surgery. This cosmetic procedure removes excess skin, fat, and muscle from your upper eyelids, creating younger-looking eyes you’ll want to show off.

What to Expect During Treatment

During upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Passaretti will make a small incision along the natural crease above your eyelid. Through this incision, Dr. Passaretti will remove excess fat deposits that weigh down your eyelids, and trim and tighten any excess tissue.

This precise procedure can create a smoother, more lifted appearance above the eyes. Because the incision is very small and placed in your natural eyelid crease, it is usually completely hidden once it has healed.

What can Upper Blepharoplasty do for me?

Upper Blepharoplasty can provide several benefits for patients who are unhappy with the appearance or function of their upper eyelids, including:

  • Improved appearance: Removing excess skin and fat can create a more youthful and refreshed appearance, reducing sagging or drooping eyelids.
  • Improved vision: If excess skin or fat on the upper eyelids obstruct vision, upper Blepharoplasty can help improve the visual field and reduce eye strain.
  • Increased self-confidence: Many patients who undergo upper blepharoplasty report feeling more confident and satisfied with their appearance following the procedure.
  • Long-lasting results: The results of upper Blepharoplasty are typically long-lasting, with many patients experiencing benefits for several years or more.
  • Minimal scarring: The incisions made during upper Blepharoplasty are typically well-hidden in the natural creases of the upper eyelid, resulting in minimal scarring.

Who Can Benefit from Upper Eyelid Surgery?

Dr. Passaretti offers both upper and lower eyelid surgery, and will determine which procedure is needed to address a patient's unique concerns. Upper eyelid surgery specifically targets sagging skin on a patient's upper eyelids. It is also a good option for patients who do not have a defined fold in the upper eyelid.

It is not intended to address bags or puffiness under the eyes, for which lower eyelid surgery is more appropriate.

Candidacy Considerations

Patients considering eyelid surgery should be in good overall physical and mental health. Certain ophthalmic conditions, such as dry eye and glaucoma, may complicate this surgery. Dr. Passaretti will review your medical history and work with your primary care physician or eye doctor to determine whether eyelid surgery is safe for you.

Eyelid Surgery for Vision Impairment

Some candidates elect to have eyelid surgery to correct impaired vision. When the upper eyelid is weighed down by excess skin, it can impair a patient's field of vision. In some of these cases, insurance may cover part or all of your treatment cost.

Patients undergoing surgery for aesthetic purposes, however, are not usually covered by insurance. We offer CareCredit℠ patient financing to help our patients break their total treatment cost into manageable monthly payments.

Erase Signs of Aging

Upper eyelid surgery can rejuvenate your appearance and erase signs of aging around your eyes. Dr. Passaretti has honed his skill in eyelid surgery, so you can expect dramatic, yet natural-looking, results. If your eyesight has become impaired by your drooping eyelids, the procedure can also expand your field of vision.

In addition to upper eyelid surgery, some patients elect to have other procedures done at the same time. Patients receiving a face lift, for example, can undergo upper eyelid surgery during their appointment for a more complete rejuvenation. By undergoing multiple procedures at once, patients can combine recovery time and often save money.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

To ensure optimal recovery from upper Blepharoplasty, you should plan to take 7-10 days for rest and recuperation. During this time, it is imperative to avoid strenuous activities that might stress the eyelids or cause inflammation—in addition to keeping them clean and dry at all times. Plus, applying cold compresses throughout the day can help reduce swelling and provide relief as well. With these precautions in place, your incisions will have a better chance of healing correctly with minimal risk of infection.

To ensure optimal healing, it is recommended that you abstain from smoking for a minimum of two weeks post-procedure. Additionally, protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses or a hat when outdoors and exposed to the sun’s rays and windy conditions.

After about 4-6 weeks, you’ll start to notice the results of your upper Blepharoplasty - though it will take up to six months for complete healing. Generally speaking, these results should be long-lasting; however, future procedures may still be necessary as the natural aging process occurs. To ensure that your skin looks its best and stays healthy over time, don’t forget to maintain a good skincare routine and lead a healthy lifestyle!
