This active gentleman wished for cosmetic improvement of his upper eyelids. He had a previous upper eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) approximately 25 years ago by another surgeon, and had significant recurrence of the upper lid skin. Under light oral sedation with valium, we performed an upper eyelid lift safely under local anesthesia in our Center. His recovery time was under one week (sutures removed on day 6 post-op), at which time he was able to return to work.
