Look 10 Years Younger with an Upper Blepharoplasty

The impact of the skin around your eyes on your perceived age is truly remarkable. Drooping, sagging, or puffy upper eyelids can add years to your appearance. When it comes to effective anti-aging cosmetic procedures, eyelid surgeries, or blepharoplasty, stand out as subtly transformative options. This minimally invasive procedure has the power to shave off a decade or more from your look.

At YCO Facial Plastic Surgery in Encinitas, California, Dr. Mario S. Yco and his dedicated team specialize in helping you achieve your anti-aging goals. Consult with Dr. Yco to explore how blepharoplasty can restore a more youthful appearance to the area around your eyes.

The challenge of droopy eyelids lies in the aging process, which brings about changes in skin volume and texture. Additionally, the accumulation of fatty tissue above the eyes becomes more apparent with age. These combined effects can result in sagging or drooping eyelids that not only reveal your age but may also impact your vision. Enter blepharoplasty, the solution to refresh your appearance.

Dr. Yco’s dual board certifications in Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery attest to his expertise in these procedures. He places emphasis on both aesthetic enhancement and vision function, ensuring a comprehensive approach to your well-being.

How blepharoplasty works: This minimally invasive surgery reshapes the eye area, with upper blepharoplasty focusing on the upper eyelids and lower blepharoplasty addressing under-eye bags. Dr. Yco can perform both procedures in a single session if necessary. Additionally, blepharoplasty can be combined with other facial plastic surgeries like eyebrow lifts, facelifts, or laser skin resurfacing.

Ideal candidates for upper blepharoplasty are individuals in good overall health, nonsmokers, and those without underlying eye conditions like glaucoma or thyroid problems.

During an upper blepharoplasty: Dr. Yco makes small incisions along the natural fold of your eyelid, ensuring no visible scarring post-healing. After removing or repositioning excess skin and fat to create a more aesthetically pleasing and functional upper eyelid, the incisions are closed. Following a brief recovery period in the clinic, you can return home without the need for hospitalization.

Post-procedure effects may include watery eyes, light sensitivity, and temporary double vision or eye discomfort. These effects, along with eyelid swelling, typically resolve quickly on their own.
