Upper blepharoplasty

At HouseMD Plastics, we specialize in upper blepharoplasty (ble-fuh-ro-plas-tee), a procedure designed to rejuvenate and refresh your eye area. Dr. House and our skilled team focus on achieving natural, aesthetically pleasing results, enhancing your overall appearance.

What is an Upper bLepharoplasty?

Upper blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, addresses sagging or drooping eyelids that contribute to a tired or aged appearance. This surgery involves removing excess skin and, if necessary, removing or repositioning fat deposits to define and invigorate the eye contour.

How is an Upper blepharoplasty performed?

Dr. House uses a careful and personalized approach. Incisions are made in the upper eyelids' natural folds for minimal scarring. The procedure is tailored to preserve the natural characteristics of the lids and prevent hollowness, often incorporating patients' youthful photos for reference.

In select cases, additional procedures like a brow lift or fat grafting may be recommended. Dr. House may also use a CO2 laser for enhanced skin smoothing around the eyes.

Addressing Hollow Upper Eyelids

For those with hollow upper eyelids due to volume loss, our focus is on restoring volume rather than removing skin. Fat grafting is utilized to rejuvenate the eyelids, creating a smoother, more youthful look. Orbital fat, or fat near the eye, can also be repositioned to help fill any hollowing. This is done through the same incision used for the skin removal segment of the surgery.

What is the expected recovery?

Every patient is different, and every surgeon manages postoperative care differently. Recovery from upper blepharoplasty is generally quick. Most patients can resume normal activities within a week, with full results visible as swelling subsides over a few weeks.

Some points to consider during your recovery:

  • Suture Removal: 7 days
  • Return to Work: 7-10 days in person, many work from home after a few days
  • 75% Recovery: 3 weeks
  • 100% Recovery: 3 months
  • Ice compresses may be useful if you see bruifor the first 48 hours
  • Some oozing from the incisions is normal for the first 48 hours
  • If there is excessive bleeding, discoloration, swelling or sudden or severe pain, call your surgeon

PTosis Repair

At HouseMD Plastics, we understand the impact that ptosis, or drooping eyelids, can have on your confidence and vision. Ptosis can affect one or both eyelids and may result from aging, muscle dysfunction, or other underlying causes. Dr. House specializes in ptosis repair procedures designed to elevate and rejuvenate the eyelids, restoring not only a more youthful appearance but also improving vision in some cases. With Dr. House's expertise in eyelid surgery and a commitment to personalized care, you can trust HouseMD Plastics for safe and effective ptosis repair tailored to your unique needs.
