Upper Eyelid Lift
Is the delicate area around your eye beginning to droop or sag?
Upper Eyelid Lift – Restore & Rejuvenate the Eyes
Our eyes are one of the first places that begin to show signs of aging, making us feel much older on the outside than we feel on the inside. An upper eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure that’s often done for aesthetic purposes to rejuvenate the eyes. If you’re ready to restore a naturally well-rested and youthful appearance, it might be time to consider an upper eyelid lift at Stein Plastic Surgery.
How Does an Upper Eyelid Lift Work?
Upper eyelid lifts are typically done with a local anesthetic with or without sedation on an outpatient basis. Over the course of about an hour, Dr. Stein meticulously works to reposition fat deposits, tighten underlying muscles, and remove excess skin causing droopiness. Incisions are made within the natural creases of the eyelid keeping visible scarring to a minimum.
Dr. Stein is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He uses his advanced surgical skills, techniques, and artistry to produce natural-looking results each and every time.
Am I a Good Candidate For an Upper Eyelid Lift?
An upper blepharoplasty may be worth considering if you’re bothered by a sagging upper lid that is making you look tired, angry, or sad even when you’re not. Upper eyelid lifts can be done for medical reasons as well including a severely drooping eyelid that’s obstructing vision. Dr. Stein will help determine your candidacy for the procedure at the time of your initial consultation.
The ideal candidate for any surgical procedure is a non-smoker who is in otherwise good general health. Patients should have realistic expectations about what an upper eyelid lift can do for them. Prior to treatment, you’ll undergo several routine medical exams to ensure you’re a good fit for the procedure.

What Results Will I See?
In most cases, you’ll see some immediate improvement right away. The eyes will have a more open, relaxed, and friendly appearance. An optimal outcome will gradually occur as any post-surgical swelling dissipates over the course of several weeks. Blepharoplasty procedures are often long-lasting when done correctly. In fact, most upper eyelid lifts have a high lifelong patient satisfaction rate.
What is the Recovery Like?
Dr. Stein has perfected his upper eyelid technique allowing for minimal post-operative swelling and bruising. Many of his patients feel comfortable returning to work and other activities in just several days. More strenuous tasks such as exercise should be postponed for up to 2-weeks or until Dr. Stein has given the go-ahead. Dr. Stein creates custom recovery plans to facilitate a smooth, easy recovery based on your procedure and lifestyle.
