Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
- 2k Downloads
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is one of the most common facial aesthetic procedures performed today. Then surgery is performed for both functional and aesthetic purposes by surgeons from a number of different subspecialties. As the surgery involves one of our most important sensory organs, the eye, a detailed understanding of relevant anatomy, operative technique, and potential risks is paramount. With this in mind, the procedure is generally safe, effective, and reliably reproducible when experience is gained. To attain these kinds of results, care and attention must be given to patient selection, expectations, the preoperative evaluation, the surgical technique, and to postoperative care. Complications are usually mild and self-limiting and can be addressed with conservative measures and reassurance.
