Anti-aging Eye Surgery: Upper Blepharoplasty

As we get older, the skin loses its elasticity. The skin around our eyes sags as time passes. At the early stage of the aging process, the double folds become smaller.

When people notice sagging skin on the upper eyelid, they often presume that the cause is only skin sagging on the eyes. However, upper eyelid sagging can sometimes also be caused by sagging of the forehead or eyebrow. Therefore, it is important to accurately determine the cause of sagging upper eyelids and correct the issue.

For example, when the eyes seem aged due to a droopy forehead and eyebrows, if upper blepharoplasty is performed, the distance between the eyes and the eyebrows is shortened, giving a patient a frustrated or stern expression.

However, when this gets worse, the angle of the eyelashes turns downward, which can poke the eyeball, causing excess tears. Also, sagging skin on the upper eyelid can badly obstruct the field of view. In such cases, by removing excess skin and pulling up the eyelids, clear sight and elasticity on the upper eyelid can be restored.

Recommended When

  • The upper eyelid is not puffy.
  • There is enough distance between the eyebrows and the eyes.
  • Clear vision is difficult.
  • There is discharge on areas of the eye covered by sagging skin.
  • Loss of skin elasticity has caused wrinkles around the eyes.
  • The eyes look sleepy due to weak eye-opening strength.

CDU's Upper Blepharoplasty

As we age, the skin, muscle and fat layer become thinner, so we need to be careful when deciding how much skin should be removed. After figuring out the condition of the skin around the eyes, the appropriate amount of skin, muscle, and fat is removed.

Depending on an individual’s physical characteristics, skin removal alone can be performed, without making double folds.

By removing sagging skin as well as unnecessary fat from the incision site, the eyes become brighter and the overall appearance becomes youthful.

By lifting the eye area and removing excess skin, the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes can be improved.

Surgery Process

01

After considering the patient’s needs, the design is made.

02

Excess skin, fat, and muscle are removed.

03

The wound is closed.

04

Bright and natural eyes are achieved.

Upper Blepharoplasty Methods

No Double Eyelid
With Double Folds

Upper blepharoplasty without creating a double eyelid

  • For eyes with double folds.
  • The recovery process for this method is shorter and faster, and the expression and appearance are not changed much.

What if I am not a candidate for either surgery?​

When it comes to saggy eyebrows, upper blepharoplasty or a subbrow lift may not be appropriate. In this case, an endoscope forehead lift is recommended to improve skin sagging on the eyes.
