As we age, our upper eyelids can begin to sag, eventually obliterating the natural fold in the upper lid. Lower eyelids can develop wrinkles and may bulge as fat pushes its way up from beneath the orbit. Aging eyelids can be rejuvenated by blepharoplasty, which involves removing excess skin and fat in the upper eyelids. This simple outpatient surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with mild sedation. Most patients feel good the day after surgery and are able to drive and do minor chores with their healing eyelids hidden by sunglasses.
An upper eyelid blepharoplasty involves removal of the sagging skin and suturing it to form a new upper lid crease. Because the incision is placed in the natural crease it is barely perceptible. Often excess fat, particularly on the nasal edge of the eyelid, is also removed to improve the eyelid contours.
