What Is an Upper Blepharoplasty?

- Droopy eyelids
- Eyelid asymmetry
- Eye shape aesthetics
- Loose or bulging eyelid skin
- Eyelid damage
- And more
Benefits of Upper Blepharoplasty

- Minimal (and hidden) incisions
Am I a Candidate for Upper Blepharoplasty?
Upper eyelid surgery can be an ideal solution for patients from all walks of life. If your upper eyelids have begun to negatively affect how you feel about your appearance, then this procedure could be for you. To start and see if you are a good candidate for upper eyelid surgery, contact us today to set up your consultation with Dr. Sykes. By personally meeting with an experienced facial surgeon, you can learn all about your treatment options and see what is right for you. Together, you and Dr. Sykes can build a personalized procedure plan to take your eyes and facial aesthetic to where you want it to be.
What Is the Procedure Like?
Every procedure is slightly different, since we adapt every step to match your treatment plan and goals. However, the general outline remains similar, with a total duration of about 1-2 hours. During this time, we will ensure that you are comfortable through anesthesia or sedation, depending on what works best for you. After Dr. Sykes finishes your procedure and ensures everything looks good, you will be free to go home, as long as someone drives you.
The Recovery Process
While eyelid surgery works on a small area of the body, it is still important to give your body a period of time to rest and fully recover. Most patients can expect about 1-2 weeks of downtime after their upper eyelid procedure. This is the time to take off work and let your body do its thing and heal. The time frame can vary from patient to patient, and depends on factors such as age, health, and following your post-procedure instructions, which Dr. Sykes will fully cover with you. These after-surgery care instructions are designed to improve your results and speed along your recovery without any problems arising. Be sure to call our office if you have any concerns after your upper eyelid procedure, and we will gladly provide any helpful tips or answers to your questions.
When Can I See Results?
After your procedure, all the changes will already be made. It is only a matter of waiting for your body to recover before you can see the results. For most patients, they can begin to get an idea of their results after the initial swelling goes down after about two weeks. But it can take several more weeks for all the swelling to disappear and let your final results shine through clearly. The good news is that upper eyelid surgery provides years of results, so your rejuvenated look will not be going anywhere anytime soon. However, taking good care of your skin and overall health will play a large role in how long your results stay amazing!
