Upper eyelid surgery (upper blepharoplasty) is performed both to improve the appearance of the eyes and address functional problems with your vision. Heavy-appearing eyes as a result of loose, sagging skin are rejuvenated with this procedure.
Upper blepharoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure under IV sedation or general anesthesia. A well-disguised incision is made in an upper eyelid crease and excess skin is removed. Swelling and bruising are common, but typically resolve within two to three weeks. Using ice compresses as instructed by Dr. Belz, sleeping with your head elevated, and avoiding strenuous activity aid in a safe recovery. Dr. Belz will review the entire procedure, risks and benefits, and post-operative course during your personalized consultation.
Don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation with Dr. Belz. She is ready to provide you with personalized care and a feminine perspective to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
