In extreme cases, these sagging lids can even interfere with a person’s vision. A solution to help restore a youthful appearance is upper eyelid surgery, also known as Upper Blepharoplasty.
During the procedure, excess skin, fat, or even muscle is removed to give the eyelid that perfect shape. Since each person is different, Dr. Torgerson will have to first do an assessment, after which he will discuss with you in more detail what he recommends.
It is also important for patients to have realistic expectations. While this type of surgery can dramatically improve the patient’s appearance, it may not be a permanent solution. Since the skin around the upper eyelids will continue to age, it may be necessary to repeat the procedure at some point in the future.
During your consultation, it is important to be completely honest about your medical history and conditions, since some conditions such as diabetes, smoking, and problems with dry eye can increase risks associated with the procedure.
During the upper eyelid surgery, the surgeon will first mark the area around your eyelids carefully. Next he will make an incision in the natural eyelid’s folds, which are in the crease of your upper eyelids. He will then remove excess skin, fat, or a muscle to restore the eyelid to a more youthful-looking shape.
