Upper Blepharoplasty in Greenwich

With passing years, age can start to take a toll on our appearance in quite a few ways. Genetics can also play a major role in how we look, especially when it comes to our eyelids. Excess or loose skin can lead to a tired and unalert appearance, even though you feel just as alive as ever. With upper blepharoplasty in Greenwich, we are proud to provide a way for patients to see a rejuvenated appearance.

What Is Upper Blepharoplasty?

Upper blepharoplasty, also called upper eyelid surgery, is a procedure aimed at providing cosmetic improvements to the upper eyelid area. It targets the skin and underlying tissues of the eyelid, creating subtle but stunning changes to deliver results that leave you looking refreshed, alert, and younger. Age, genetics, and skin damage can all lead to changes that leave patients looking tired due to eyelid positioning. But this procedure reverses those changes, providing a revitalized aesthetic.

What Is the Procedure Like?

Your upper eyelid procedure will be personalized to match your unique goals. Every feature of it is decided on ahead of time between you and Dr. Sohrab. This includes deciding on the level of anesthesia, which is typically local numbing for upper eyelid surgery. Once you are comfortable, she begins the procedure, precisely following your treatment plan at each step. In total, patients can expect surgery to last about 30 minutes.
This can be longer if combined with other procedures based on your unique treatment plan. Patients can combine upper eyelid surgery with other cosmetic procedures for a fully optimized experience. Common combinations include lower eyelid surgery, a brow lift, or non-surgical treatments.

Testimonial Image
After having a mild stroke in February, my husband’s eyelids were drooping enough to affect his range of vision. Dr. Sohrab did upper blepharoplasty which resulted in lifting of his upper eyelids, restoring his vision. ( We were also diligent in applying frozen peas in snack size plastic zip loc bags that I had prepared ahead of time and using additional pillows to elevate his head, no lowering of his head to tie shoe laces or pick up things from the floor.)

What Is the Recovery Process?

Eyelid surgery targets a small area, but the recovery period is still highly important. By taking about 1-2 weeks of downtime, you can give your body the rest it needs to heal smoothly, allowing for optimal results. During this initial period, some swelling, bruising, and discomfort are normal. But Dr. Sohrab will provide you with complete care instructions and prescribed medication to manage everything. With plenty of rest and good self-care, you should gradually improve each day until you are fully healed and can enjoy your renewed aesthetic. Dr. Sohrab and her team are only a phone call away for any additional info or answers to questions that you may need.

When Can I See Results?

Upper eyelid surgery provides immediate changes to the treatment areas. Still, it is important to remember that it can take time for the swelling to go down, allowing you to see your final results. Most of the time, the initial swelling goes away enough to see your first results within several week. Then it fully goes down, revealing your final resultswithin a few months, depending on how quickly your body heals and whether the surgery is combined with other procedures. Eyelid procedures can provide long-lasting results, giving your eyes a rejuvenated appearance for years to come with proper care and a healthy lifestyle.
