Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery surveys, upper eyelid blepharoplasty yields the highest satisfaction rate of any plastic surgery procedure. The attractiveness of this procedure is the short length of the operation, the ability to perform the operation under local anesthesia, the relatively brief recovery time (time away from work), and inconspicuous scarring due to the location of the incisions.
