Upper eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the eyes by removing excess bulk that covers the natural creases of the eyes. Patients often say they look more tired than they feel, that the eyelids feel heavy or in severe cases, affect their vision. Women who regularly use eye makeup and mascara will find that the extra skin on top of the eyelids causes creasing and smudging. The excess skin is removed surgically, if there is excess fat or bulky muscle, these are trimmed at the same time. When it comes to eyelid surgery, having an eye for aesthetics and detail is as important as the technical execution of the procedure. There are important differences in aesthetics between male and female patients. It is important that these differences be appreciated by your plastic surgeon in order for you to get the results that are harmonious with the rest of your facial features. Remember to ask us about this point and we will go over some photos with you during the consultation.

Our Preferences:

Surgery on the face, especially near the eyes requires an even higher level of precision. Artistic intuition distinguishes a satisfactory outcome from an exceptional one. This is why we take great pride in producing beautiful blepharoplasty results for our patients. We hide the incision in the natural crease of the eyelid. Usually patients have more loose skin on the outer corners of the eyes so we remove more skin accordingly to create an open and lifted look. Conservative fat removal is done to reduce bulk but not too much to avoid hollowing of the eyes.
