What is an Upper Blepharoplasty?


Eyelid surgery is a highly adaptable procedure, and we personalize each treatment carefully so that we target your precise expectations.
Our goal for each procedure is for our patients to look and feel like their best.

For the upper eyelids, we focus on improving the looseness or droopy features that come with age. Genetics can also cause eyelids to droop, and we can help with that as well. As our eyelids droop, we can look tired and aged, even if we feel quite the opposite! Upper eyelid procedures can deliver drastic improvements that leave you looking alert, younger, and overall vibrant.

What Is Upper Eyelid Surgery Like?

We perform upper blepharoplasty in a surgery center, providing patients with either local anesthesia or sedation. Either option will ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, so it depends on your health needs and personal choice.

With upper eyelid surgery, we focus on removing excess skin and tightening the eyelid subtly. We may also remove targeted pockets of fat if they are interfering with your appearance. Even though the changes are minor, the results can be stunning. We also are sure to hide any incisions in the eye’s natural folds. This way, any of the minimal scarring is out of sight! You can also get this procedure on only one eyelid if you want to address any asymmetry!

After your surgery, you can return home right away and can even have your eyes already open.

How Does Dr. Shah Vira Customize Upper Blepharoplasty?

Since every patient is different, we tailor every eyelid surgery to our patients’ specific goals. We work with you to understand your desired look and what you hope to achieve. As part of this, we consider your natural anatomy and how that affects upper blepharoplasty results. For example, some patients may have more skin or fat than others. We also look at the position of your eyebrows, as that can also affect how your eyelids will look after surgery.

In short, we want to make sure that you love your results! To do that, we take the time to personalize your treatment from start to finish. We can also provide suggestions and options for combining your upper eyelid procedure with other cosmetic treatments to further enhance your results.

How Is the Recovery?

Eyelid surgery is a full procedure and can take about 1-2 weeks for the initial recovery period. In most cases, you can return home the same day as the surgery. However, it will be important to focus on resting for this initial period. Your surgeon will provide you with complete aftercare tips and instructions to help speed along your recovery. It can take several weeks or more for all the swelling to fully go down. But once it does, you will be able to see your full results. With a healthy lifestyle and good care, you can see your improvements last for years to come.
