What Is An Upper Blepharoplasty?

An upper blepharoplasty is a procedure that removes protruding fat and loose, sagging skin from the eyelids. This procedure may be performed for cosmetic or medical purposes. The sole purpose of a cosmetic blepharoplasty is to improve one’s appearance. A functional blepharoplasty is performed to improve vision. Loose skin and droopy eyelids may contribute to vision problems.

Why You May Need An Upper Blepharoplasty

You may need to get an upper blepharoplasty if your upper eyelid skin is beginning to sag. This can lead to vision impairment. It is also one of the main reasons people decide to get an upper blepharoplasty.

You may also want to get an upper blepharoplasty if your eyes are starting to look tired. Your brows deflate and your skin stretches as you get older. That is why tired eyes often come along with the aging process. This procedure may not improve your vision, but it can help improve your appearance.

Additionally, if you have fat bulges in your upper eyelids, then you may want to get a blepharoplasty. The fat bulges can be removed or smoothed out with a blepharoplasty.

Who Are The Best Candidates For A Blepharoplasty?

People who are in good health are the best candidates for a blepharoplasty. The surgery is most common in men and women over 40 years old. If you are getting a blepharoplasty done for cosmetic reasons, then it is important to remember that the aging process will continue. That is why the results will not be permanent. However, the results can potentially last up to 10 years. Your overall health will also affect how long the results of the procedure will last.

Recovering From A Blepharoplasty

You may experience some mild to moderate discomfort and bruising after your surgery. This is normal, and it will likely subside within a few days of your surgery. It is important to follow all of the instructions given by your doctor. This will ensure that you recover properly and do not suffer any complications from the surgery.
