What Is Upper Blepharoplasty?
Upper Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids. Whether you are experiencing signs of aging, genetic changes, or other conditions, an upper blepharoplasty could be able to help you restore your appearance and look your best. In many cases, the procedure is purely cosmetic, creating stunning enhancements to your facial appearance. However, it can also provide functional benefits for patients struggling with droopy eyelids that interfere with vision.
With an upper eyelid procedure, Dr. Kauh can address a range of concerns, including:
- Drooping or sagging skin on the upper eyelids
- Puffiness in the upper eyelids
- Bags or dark circles under the eyes
- Excess skin or fatty tissue in the upper eyelids
- Fine wrinkles or creases in the upper eyelids
Is Upper Blepharoplasty Right for Me?
If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your upper eyelids, then upper Blepharoplasty in Columbus could be your ideal solution. This procedure is excellent for helping patients achieve a rejuvenated, bright appearance, matching their inner and our selves so both can shine.
The best way to determine whether upper Blepharoplasty is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kauh. During your consultation, she will take the time to assess your individual concerns and goals for treatment. She will also perform a physical examination of your upper eyelids, looking at the skin, muscle, and fatty tissue in the area. With this information, she can help you make an informed decision about whether upper eyelid surgery is the best option for you.
“Dr. Kauh was helpful, kind, and went above and beyond to make me
feel comfortable in the approach to my healthcare. I couldn’t recommend anyone better to provide cosmetic services.”
What Is the Procedure Like?
Upper Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure, which means you will not need to stay in the hospital overnight. Most procedures can be completed in less than two hours, though this will depend on the individual case. While some patients may prefer full sedation, this procedure can also be done awake comfortable with only local anesthetic. We work with you to see which solution is best for enhancing both your comfort and safety during your surgery.
During your upper Blepharoplasty, Dr. Kauh will make incisions in the natural creases of the upper eyelids. Through these incisions, Dr. Kauh will be able to access the underlying muscle and fat. She will then gently reposition or remove excess tissue, creating a more youthful appearance. The surgery usually lasts only 1-2 hours, though this can vary and depends on factors such as whether you are combining it with other procedures or treatments.
Upper Blepharoplasty Results and Recovery
Most patients feel well enough to return home the same day as their upper blepharoplasty in Columbus. You will typically experience some bruising and swelling in the treatment area, which should improve within a few days to a week. During this time, most patients take one to two weeks off from work to focus on recovering. To help with healing, we will provide you with ice packs and detailed instructions for at-home care to boost your recovery. It is important that you follow all of our postoperative instructions carefully to minimize your risk for complications and ensure optimal results from your upper Blepharoplasty.
Most patients see initial results from their surgery within the first week or two after treatment. However, it can take several months for the full effects of your upper blepharoplasty to become apparent as swelling subsides. Once your final results are visible, they should be long-lasting. In many cases, the results of upper Blepharoplasty can last you for years.
