Upper blepharoplasty to get rid of upper eyelid fat and loose skin
The upper blepharoplasty can be done with a scalpel although a modern approach uses the laser blepharoplasty to remove upper eyelid aft and loose skin.
The operation is fairly simple and straight forward if done by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Recovery is not painful and usually consists of time for swelling and bruising to go away. Typically, after laser upper blepharoplasty swelling and bruising are gone in 10 days to two weeks at most.

Eyelid surgery can be done in the office under local anesthesia. The recovery is about 5-7 days. Sometimes blepharoplasty is combined with laser skin resurfacing or chemical peel to tighten skin and smooth wrinkles and lines.

Due to the delicate anatomy in this area, we generally advise a surgical approach to fat removal. Non surgical methods such as mesotherapy are dangerous around the eye and should generally be avoided.
