Your eyes are a crucial aspect of your overall appearance and are two of the first places the signs of facial aging make themselves known. Upper eyelid surgery is offered by Dr. Karam as a standalone procedure, or as an aspect of the comprehensive and customizable Vertical Restore procedure.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
The ideal surgical candidate for upper eyelid surgery is a patient from any age group that exhibits redundant upper eyelid skin to a degree that it is negatively affecting the individual’s appearance. It’s difficult to feel like your confident and best self when your age is showing through your eyes, so upper eyelid surgery is here to help you enjoy a more open and inviting appearance.
The upper lids may appear “tired” and, in some extreme cases can impact the lateral visual field. Younger patients affected by familial blepharochalasis (extra eyelid skin formation) often benefit from upper blepharoplasty between the ages of 20 and 40 years old, but the typical “aging face” patient will benefit from surgical excision once they reach 40 years or older.
