Upper lid blepharoplasty (often called an eye lift) has been a procedure used for many years to treat loose skin on the upper eyelid, or dermatochalasis. This condition occurs naturally with aging, but the extent of which it occurs often depends on genetic predisposition, ethnicity, and lifestyle choices. Over time skin loses elasticity, connective tissues weaken, and gravity takes a toll on the skin; which leads to skin folding down. Performing eyelid surgery for over 18 years, Dr. Malouf understands the balance between anatomy, results and downtime. Book an appointment now.
Blepharoplasty surgery typically takes about one hour, and it usually takes four to six weeks for the final results to be seen after the eyelid fully heals. After the procedure is complete, a topical antibiotic will be applied to prevent infection. In the two days following treatment ice packs should be used as directed by your doctor to prevent bruising and reduce swelling. On day three, warm compresses can be applied to promote faster recovery. If you are interested in blepharoplasty contact our office to schedule your consultation.
