Upper Blepharoplasty

What is Upper Blepharoplasty?

Answer's Upper Blepharoplasty removes loose skin, unnecessary fat, and muscles to create a clearer and brighter shape to the eyes. When people are aging, the skin on the eyelids becomes looser due to eye movement. Thus, Upper Blepharoplasty surgery is mainly for middle-aged people. When the muscles are weak, the skin of the upper eyelids covers the eyes which also inhibits sight and leads to droopy looking eyes. The droopy eyes tend to cover the pupils and cause ocular problems. In order to solve this functional problem, the skin of the upper eyelids is reshaped. This process removes any loose or unnecessary skin on the upper eyelids.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between Souble Eyelid surgery and  Upper Blepharoplasty surgery?

A: Double Eyelid surgery is simply to create double eyelids. Upper Blepharoplasty surgery is to create double eyelids and remove unnecessary fats and muscles and lift the loosened skin up.

Q: What is the difference between Eyebrow Lift and Upper Blepharoplasty surgery?

A: Eyebrow Lift surgery is to cut the thick skin under the eyebrow to remove the loose skin. Upper Blepharoplasty surgery, however, is done to remove loose skin right above the double eyelid through incisions. Eyebrow Lift surgery cannot be performed if the distance between eyebrow and eyes are too close.

Q: Why does the skin on the outside of eyes become looser than the skin on the inside of the eyes?

A: When skin becomes loose, people tend to use the muscle force of their forehead to raise the skin up. There is no muscle on the outside of the eyes, so people cannot use their muscle force. Thus, the skin on the outside of the eyes loosens faster.

Q: Can young people get Upper Blepharoplasty surgery?

A: Yes. Recently, there is a tendency that younger people developing droopy upper eyelids due to excessive use of double eyelid tape, for example. In this case, young people also can consider Upper Blepharoplasty.

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
