Upper Blepharoplasty (Eye Lift)

A cosmetic surgery to correct heavy or drooping upper lids and refresh the brow area

An upper blepharoplasty or eye lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is done to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids. It can be done in combination with a lower blepharoplasty (eye bag removal) procedure to rejuvenate the entire area surrounding the eyes.

As we grow older, the upper eyelid skin loses its elasticity and starts to droop or sag. This can lead to the formation of folds or creases that hang low over the lashes. 

An eye lift procedure can treat common problems like sagging skin, loose skin, and folds of skin in the upper eyelids. These age-related changes can make you appear tired and may even interfere with vision. Eyelid surgery can also eliminate fatty deposits that cause puffiness in the eyelids. The procedure can open up your eyes, helping you look more rested and look years younger.

At Venus Medical, our plastic surgeons perform eyelid surgery using local anaesthesia. The incision for an eye lift is well concealed in the natural fold of the upper eyelid. The incision is used to access the deeper layers to trim away excess muscle or fat, as well as skin.   

You can find out if you are a suitable candidate for an upper blepharoplasty eyelid surgery during a consultation at Venus Medical or by connecting remotely on the MeTime app.
