Upper blepharoplasty is a surgical operation to remove skin and sometimes fat from the upper eyelids.

It is done to reduce upper eyelid puffiness and drooping. It may also be done in minor cases of upper eyelid ptosis.

The surgery is typically done under local anaesthesia, with or without sedation. There will be some swelling immediately post-operatively and for 1-3 weeks after while the wound heals. Bruising may also occur as the eyelid skin has many blood vessels.

For the surgeon to accurately assess your eyes it is highly recommended that you bring in photographs of yourself or desired look for the consultation before surgery.
