Reasons to Have Upper Eyelid Surgery
Cosmetic surgery for the upper eyelids can have both aesthetic and functional benefits. This is a popular procedure that has helped many men and women rejuvenate the appearance of their eyes and remove obstructions to their vision caused by drooping upper eyelid skin. Upper eyelid surgery is performed to:
- Firm and tighten lax muscles and skin that has lost its elasticity
- Remove excess skin in the upper eyelids
- Remove fat bulges above the eyes
- Lift drooping eyelid skin out of the field of vision
Upper Eyelid Surgery Procedure
This is a minor surgery that produces truly dramatic results. It is performed on an outpatient basis and can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, including lower eyelid surgery.
An incision is made within the natural crease of the eyelid to allow for tightening of the muscle, removal or repositioning of fat deposits, and removal of excess skin. The placement of the incisions in the natural crease of the eyelids ensures that surgical scars are fully concealed within the natural structure of the eyelid area.
The incisions are closed with sutures or medical skin glue. If sutures are used, they are removed within one week. Results become evident after the minor swelling and bruising subside. The eyelid and surrounding area will be better defined and the eyes will appear brighter, more alert, and rejuvenated.
