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 surgery 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 in Korea.

There are other methods of removal of the sagging skins without creating double eyelid folds and proportional resection of skin around eyebrows.

  • Bring clothing you can easily change into without irritating the surgical sites, such as a shirt or a big T-shirt.
  • Cigarettes may cause phlegm, sneezing, or bleeding after an operation. We strongly recommend that you stop smoking for two weeks before an operation.
  • A serious cold may reduce your trachea and respiratory functions. Please inform your doctor in advance if you happen to be suffering from a serious cold on the day of surgery.
  • You must stop taking any medications that might disturb hemostasis (oral contraceptive pills, hormonal drugs, vitamin E, aspirin, etc.) at least one week before an operation. If you are currently receiving treatment for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or thyroid disease, you must inform your doctor in advance.
  • We recommend that you take a bath and wash your head on the day before an operation. You must remove makeup and wash your teeth on the day of surgery. In addition, you must remove your contact lenses, any accessories, nail polish, and pedicure.

Caution After Eye Surgery

  • You can wash your face with water from the day after the stitches are removed. You may take a shower but should refrain from using a sauna or a public bath.
  • You must take the medications on time as prescribed by a physician and refrain from taking aspirin or hormonal drugs.
