I would like to remove this “hooding” which is caused by sagging skin under my eyebrow. However, I do not want to dramatically change the shape or position of my eyebrow. This before and after demonstrates the change I would like to make.

My favorite surgical procedure is a skin only upper blepharoplasty performed in our office under local anesthesia. The procedure takes about an hour, patients are sedated with Xanax and a weight appropriate dose of Demerol and an antihistamine so that they are extremely comfortable making the treatment quick and easy. The incision and stiches are in your natural eyelid skin crease which you can see in your photos. The sutures are removed 5 to 7 days after surgery. The lid is initially swollen and slightly bruised. A day or two after surgery concealer can be applied. The incision line evolves from red to pink to normal skin color over 4 to 6 weeks, once it is back to normal skin color it is not noticeable. The day of your upper blepharoplasty and the following day involve relaxing and resting, after that, you feel normal, may work from home or even put on your sunglasses and go about your business. Excercise may resume a couple of days after your stitches are removed. Feel free to contact me with any further questions or concerns. As with any aesthetic treatment it is extremely important to choose your treating physician carefully based on their experience, skill, certification, knowledge, care, and natural artistic vision.
