What is Upper Blepharoplasty?

Upper Blepharoplasty, rejuvenate your youthful and elastic eye shape

In general, most people merely consider that saggy eyelids are a natural symptom of aging.
However, the root causes of the aging of eyelids vary and include droopiness of all other parts above the eyelids such as scalp, forehead, eyebrows, and eyelids. Thus, eyelid lift correction is not simply about cutting the saggy parts of the eyelids but correcting the overall balance of eyelids.
Eyesight can become deteriorated by the droopy eyelids, and more wrinkles around eyebrows and the forehead can be created as a patient tries to open his/her eyes wide. As droopy eyelids could cover the iris, his/her sight may also become interrupted. The saggy eyelids cover double eyelid lines as well. Upper blepharoptosis wrinkle surgery reduces saggy eyelids and it is divided into upper blepharoplasty and endoscopic brow lift. Upper blepharoptosis wrinkle surgery consists of blepharoplasty

  • 01It removes the saggy skin of eyelids and creates new double eyelid lines.
  • 02There are other methods of removal of the sagging skins without creating double eyelid folds and proportional resection of skin around eyebrows
