Upper Blepharoplasty by Wave Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Laser Center
Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery operated on the eyelid, that’s why generally it is simply called as the eyelid surgery. It is conducted, when a patient wants to improve the upper or lower lids in order to look younger, or to make the eyes seem bigger. Obviously, mostly female patients undergo this kind of cosmetic surgery in a search for a more beautiful appearance. When a person gets older, the face is a part of the body that shows a person’s age better than any other. And eyelids are one of the best indicators, too.
At Wave Plastic Surgery, upper eyelid surgery is one of the most common procedures that we perform in our outpatient surgery center. Patients of all ethnic background and age are candidates for upper eyelid surgery but the technique and approach is variable so it is very important to have a plastic surgery consultation to determine the best technique for each individual.
We believe that there are several aspects of upper eyelid surgery in young people that is essential.

What happens during an eyelid surgery?
Step 1 – Anesthesia
Medications are administered for your comfort during the eyelid surgery procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Step 2 – The incision
The incision lines for eyelid surgery are designed for scars to be well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid region.
Droopy conditions of the upper eyelid can be corrected through an incision within the natural crease of the upper eyelid allowing repositioning of fat deposits, tightening of muscles and tissue, and/or removal of excess skin.
Conditions of the lower eyelid may be corrected with an incision just below the lower lash line. Through this incision, excess skin in the lower eyelids is removed.
A transconjunctival incision, one hidden inside the lower eyelid, is an alternate technique to correct lower eyelid conditions and redistribute or remove excess fat.

Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.
Is it right for me?
A blepharoplasty procedure is usually performed on adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles and have realistic goals for improvement of the upper and/or lower eyelids and surrounding area.
