An upper eyelid blepharoplasty is presently one of the most commonly performed plastic surgeries and because the 'all so important to us' eyes are involved, it's considered a major part of what we call 'global facial rejuvenation'. It is said that almost everyone is in need of one for one reason or another. Most frequently an upper eyelid surgery is designed to target heavy feeling eyelids, puffiness of the upper eyelids, sagging eyelids or droopiness of the eyelids (with or without an impairment of peripheral vision). The surgery removes mostly excess skin from the upper eyelids, but also, in some cases, small amounts of muscle and bulging fatty tissue. With a scalpel, a small incision is made in upper eyelid in the area of the natural eyelid crease in order to remove excess skin, muscle and/or bulging fatty tissue. Once this has been completed, the skin above and below the wound area will be sutured back together creating a fine scar line designed to heal exactly within the crease of the upper eyelid.
