An upper eyelid surgery or upper blepharoplasty is a plastic surgical procedure carried out to remove skin and fat from the upper eyelids. The upper eyelid surgery has gained significant importance in past few decades with both its knowledge and performance being increased rapidly with time. An upper blepharoplasty is usually carried out for cosmetic reasons to remove the sagging and fat deposit from the upper eyelid and help increase the vision as well. As a person ages, the skin loses elasticity and causes the skin to get collected on the upper eyelids which is removed with upper eyelid surgery. An upper blepharoplasty doesn’t remove the dark circles or other facial wrinkles and is usually carried out with procedures like forehead lift, filler injection or laser resurfacing etc. 

In order to get the maximum out of the upper eyelid surgery the patient must discuss with the surgeon their expectations from the surgery. People with good general health and usually of more than 35 years of age are ideal candidates for the procedure. The surgeon makes incision across the upper eyelids to remove the fat and skin from it. The incision is made through the natural creases on the upper eyelid in order to hide the scars from the surgery. The surgeon would remove and reposition the fat deposits, excess skin and tighten the muscles and suture it making a crease on the eyelid. The upper eyelid surgery is one of the most important surgeries to rejuvenate the orbital area by removing the sagging skin and providing a proper brow position.

The upper blepharoplasty is performed as an outpatient surgery and the procedure is carried out as an outpatient surgery. The surgeon would provide proper medication to apply and take orally to induce the healing process and protect from any infection. The patient initially witnesses some swelling, bruising or irritation immediately following the surgery which may be controlled with the help of proper medication and gradually reduces with time. The patient is needed to protect the eyes from sun till fully completion of the healing process and should follow up with the surgeon in time.
