It’s not unusual for patients who are aging to have excess eyelid skin associated with prominent fat pads. This not only makes the eyelids look heavy but also makes the patient look tired. For these reasons, patients often request upper eyelid blepharoplasty.
This procedure is performed through an upper eyelid incision and removes excess skin and fat collections. The procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia. Patients typically recover in about 5 to 7 days following surgery.
Patients who undergo this procedure often look younger, rested, and more energetic.
