Upper Blepharoplasty

One of the most popular facial procedures is an upper eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) to address droopy or heavy eyelids. The development of excess skin of the upper lids, contributing to a heavy or tired look is a very common part of facial aging. The eyelid crease becomes saggy and the extra skin can make the eyes feel tired as the day goes on. Too much extra skin can even obstruct some of your vision.

Luckily, most upper eyelid lifts can be done as a straightforward procedure in the office. The procedures take less than an hour and can be done with local numbing medication. After careful marking of the lids to ensure the right amount is removed, the excess skin is excised and the eyelid is tightened. Your natural eyelid crease is restored without changing the size or shape of your eyes. Your freshened, more awake appearance can be achieved very naturally with a virtually invisible scar.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Whether it’s genetic or from facial aging, bags or “puffiness” in the lower eyelids can contribute to looking tired or sad. This problem is often due to the bulging of excess fat pads that naturally occur under the eye. Removing this excess fat to address a puffy look is performed with a lower blepharoplasty.

In this procedure, incisions are hidden behind the lower eyelid. The bulging fat underneath the skin is carefully removed to create a smoother appearance. When completed, the lower eyelids appear less puffy and less tired. This procedure has no visible scars, and no sutures are needed. Recovering from an eyelid lift is typically less than one week. You must avoid raining your eyes and wear sunglasses when you are out to limit your exposure to the sun to ensure a fast recovery and optimal results.

Lower eyelid surgery is very delicate and also carries important risks. This surgery should only be performed by fellowship-trained surgeons who are experts in eyelid surgery. If you are interested in improving your lower eyelids, a consultation with Dr. Yamamoto is essential to find out if you are the right candidate for a lower blepharoplasty.
