Upper eyelid lift Las Vegas (a.k.a. an “upper blepharoplasty”) is one of our most popular treatments…and Dr. Lanfranchi’s favorite! The goal of an upper eyelid lift is to remove most of the excess thin skin (a.k.a. “hooding”) found over both upper eyelids. This tissue is the sagging thin skin that covers the tops of the lids and worsens with age. This loose skin makes one look tired and depressed in appearance. Many women complain with frustration that their makeup application is hindered by this excess skin. Even a few patients will claim that their vision is bothered at times if the condition is severe enough. The end result of this amazing simple, yet delicate, procedure? A noticeably more awake and bright-eyed natural appearance!
A tiny hair-line incision is placed in the natural crease of both upper eyes. First, the excess thin skin is meticulously removed. If present, any prominent bulging fat pads are then removed to enhance the contour of the inner aspect of each eyelid. For some patients with significant hooding, an upper eyelid lift procedure can actually improve their peripheral vision (by removing the skin that was blocking their view).
The Upper Eyelid Lift is a very natural procedure that does not change the shape of the eye. It will not effect the brow position, so there is certainly no risk of developing a “surprised” unnatural appearance. Removing the weight of this skin creates less pressure on the eyelids, so many patients report feeling less tired at the end of the day. Women state that makeup application is much easier, faster, and more effective. This allows them to make their eyes look even more beautiful!
The upper blepharoplasty treatment typically has one of the shortest, and easiest, recovery periods. Recovery can be as short as 2-3 days for many patients! When indicated, an upper eyelid lift can be performed in patients as early as age 30. Many clients choose to have a Brow Lift with their eyelid lift in order to maximally rejuvenate their eyes.
“The great thing about him is that he only works on faces. That is his specialty. The entire procedure took a little under two hours. I felt absolutely no pain whatsoever.”
