Upper Blepharoplasty (Upper Eyelid Surgery) is a procedure that removes excess skin, muscle, and fat to reduce the appearance of drooping, tired eyelids. As you age, your eyelid skin tends to stretch and the muscles that help support the skin and fat of your eyes weakens.
In some instances, an Upper Blepharoplasty is not only cosmetic, but it can also help to correct issues you may be experiencing with your vision.
Dr. Geers’ approach is to deliver an undetectable but effective result that restores your eyes to a more youthful state, without changing your overall face. She systematically addresses sagging eyelids, bulges of “bags” or fatty tissue, hollowness around the eyes, dark circles, and loose crepey eyelid skin, and then tailors this approach to each of her patients.
To correct the upper eyelids, Dr. Geers hides the incisions in the natural crease above each eye so that after surgery, the scar is almost imperceptible and camouflaged in the normal eye fold.
This procedure can also be combined with a brow lift, face lift, facial fat transfer, or a skin resurfacing procedure.
