Upper Eyelid Lift (Upper Blepharoplasty) by Dr. Jon Mendelsohn

• 20 Minutes • Minimal Downtime • Local Anesthesia • 10 Year Guarantee

 

Are you tired of people asking if you’re tired? As we age, excess skin and fat above the eye can droop, getting in the way of a youthful appearance – and even your vision. Upper blepharoplasty
is likely the single best treatment available for refreshing the eye area. The procedure simply removes the redundant skin and fat, rather than lifting the brow, which does not solve the problem of hooding or upper eyelid heaviness. It takes just 15 to 20 minutes and requires just one stitch per eye, so there’s minimal downtime.

The procedure delivers a lasting, bright-eyed, youthful look that will continue to improve over three to six months. We’re so confident in our upper blepharoplasty treatment that we guarantee
the results will last for 10 years after your procedure.

Please note: Lower blepharoplasties are available, but treatments like fillers and dermal optical thermolysis (DOT) laser often can help you achieve your goals without surgery.

An Upper Eyelid Lift Addresses the Following Concerns:

 

  • Probably the single best procedure to help you appear more refreshed.
  • Comments about looking older, sad, or tired.
  • Excess skin, wrinkles, hooding, heaviness of the upper eyelids, and inability to apply makeup to the upper eyelids.
  • Sagging, drooping, or “hound dog” look at the corners of the eyes.
  • Difficulty with vision when looking upward or ahead.
  • Excess fat either below or above the eyes, or both.

  • Outpatient procedure performed under local anesthetic in our AAAHC accredited surgery center.
  • Procedure takes about 15 to 20 minutes to perform.
  • When treating the upper eyelids, an incision is made in the natural crease of the eyelid, and excess skin and fat are removed.
  • When treating the lower eyelids, an incision is made inside the lower eyelid, or below the edge of the outer lower eyelid, and then excess skin and fat are removed.
  • Lower blepharoplasties may not be recommended, as non-surgical treatments like fillers and DOT laser may help rejuvenate many of the concerns patients have without surgery.

  • You will need to sleep and rest with your head slightly elevated for a week after your procedure. We prefer that you do NOT sleep on your face.
  • Pain is minimal, subsides by the second or third day, and is easily controlled with medication like Tylenol. Most patients do not take anything after the first day.
  • Swelling is mild to moderate and peaks at day two, then subsides rapidly over the next several weeks.
  • Bruising is minimal.
  • You will come in the day after your procedure for a checkup, and sutures are removed about six days afterwards.
  • Makeup may be applied after sutures are removed, and you are able to comfortably appear in public after that time.
  • You may resume many activities within the first week after surgery, and most regular activities by the end of three weeks.

    • The outpatient procedure is performed in a private operating room in our surgery center, which is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care.
