Upper Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Michael McCracken can help you combat the signs of aging around the eyes with upper eyelid surgery, also known as upper blepharoplasty. Upper eyelid surgery can remove excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids, improving the appearance of puffiness and
creasing that contribute to a tired and aged facial appearance.

How can upper eyelid
surgery help?

Upper eyelid surgery can help minimize the appearance of bagginess and puffiness in the upper eyebrow region, giving you a younger, fresher appearance. An Upper Blepharoplasty can also:

  • Remove loose and sagging skin that creates folds and “hooding” around the eyes
  • Remove excess fatty deposits that cause puffiness
  • Improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the upper eyelids
  • Make your eyes look refreshed and rejuvenated
  • Make your eyes and face look less tired
  • Provide a more youthful appearance

This is often combined with a brow lift or lower eyelid surgery.

How is Upper Blepharoplasty Surgery Performed?

The process generally takes about 30 minutes and can be done under local anesthesia with IV sedation. During surgery, Dr. McCracken makes a small incision hidden in the natural eyelid fold to remove excess skin and fat. Our process is performed in such a way to ensure any scarring is not visible. Once the desired corrections have been made, the incision will be closed. Our sutures should dissolve within a few days.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

As a natural part of the aging process, the skin around the lower eyes can become loose, and the fatty deposits can bulge forward. Time, heredity, and environmental factors can cause the skin and fat of the lower eyelid to become wrinkled and baggy. The fat of the lower eyelid can result in a tired, puffy, and aged appearance. Dr. McCracken performs a range of surgical procedures to help reverse the signs of aging and help patients look and feel their best.
