Upper lid blepharoplasty

Posted On 10/21/2013 by Dr. Christopher Zoumalan

Upper lid blepharoplasty surgery is a very gratifying surgery for patients. Dr. Zoumalan is one of a handful of surgeons that exclusively specializes in upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty surgery. Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery which involves the removal of excess skin and fat pockets in the upper and lower eyelids. In the upper eyelids, excess skin can result in a tired appearance to some, while in others, it can actually result in difficulty seeing in the top gaze of your vision (also referred to as limitations in super visual field).

This particular patient had excess skin blocking her visual fields and resulting in a tired appearance (termed dermatochalasia). She has mild droopy lids (ptosis) as well in addition to a mild left brow ptosis. She underwent bilateral upper lid blepharoplasty, mild ptosis repair, and a left-sided brow lift.
