Upper Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid surgery, known as upper blepharoplasty, is performed when the eyelids droop down due to reduced skin elasticity. Droopy eyelids can impede vision and sometimes the outer edge of the eye could become ulcerated. During this procedure, a part of the skin tissue in the eyelid is resected and the elevating muscle of the upper eyelid (muscle levator palpebrae superioris) is tightened to address the problem.
Duration of Surgery
After 5~7 days
