EYELID LIFT OR UPPER BLEPHAROPLASTY
The signs of premature aging, such as dark circles under the eyes, sagging upper and lower eyelids, fine lines, and wrinkles, can make you look tired and less engaged. Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is the recommended and most often preferred treatment for improving droopy eyelids or removing bags under the eyes. These aging eye conditions can add years to your appearance and even impair your vision. More often than wanting a more “youthful” look, we find that our patients want a more “rested” or “happy” look, which eyelid rejuvenation addresses well. Many patients report feeling more light entering their eyes, and an improvement in peripheral vision that they did not realize they had lost.
Our patient examples below show results from upper blepharoplasty. Please take your time with the sliders and try to see what they saw in the mirror: faces that looked “unhappy”, “tired”, “old”, or were just a poor match for the energy that they felt. See the difference that the whole face takes when the eyes have a more “engaged” look.
How is Eyelid Lift Surgery performed?
Dr. Kundaria will make well-planned incisions along the natural lines of your eyelids, which results in minimal scarring in the upper eyelid. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin from the upper eyelids, and Dr. Kundaria may remove fat and tighten muscle to help you attain a fresher, more alert—yet completely natural—eye expression. Surgery is typically performed with local anesthesia (numbing injections like a dental procedure) in the office, though it can also be performed in an operating room if the patient prefers that setting.
What is the recovery time after Eyelid Lift Surgery?
Usually, you will be ready to return to work or normal activities in 7 to 14 days. Most patients are back to their normal routine within days, although complete recovery may take a few weeks. If you notice how your drooping eyelids and puffy or hollow under eye areas may be adding years to your age, ask Dr. Kundaria how an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) can help you. We can reassure you by showing you our patients’ before-and-after pictures that Dr. Kundaria will take an artistic approach and will personalize the surgery and any non-surgical services to be right for your unique face.

“I had erbium laser resurfacing done by Dr. Kundaria five days ago and I am amazed by how quickly I am healing. The whole experience has been amazing! Dr. Kundaria has an excellent bedside manner, extremely attentive to my questions and any concerns I might have. He even called several times after the procedure to check on me at home. I feel very confident in any procedure he performs on me and would recommend him to everyone!!!”
“I had such an amazing experience with Dr. Kundaria!! Him and his staff were so incredibly helpful and made me feel so comfortable from the minute I walked in. I told him what my area of concern was and we made a plan based on my condition and concerns with keeping in mind my price point. He really cares and wants the patient to walk out with the best result possible. I can’t wait to see my final result after my series of laser treatments.”
“A wonderful find. Dr. Kundaria has a top notch, professional approach. There is no pressure or excess. Cindy Roberts did my laser hair removal and she, along with Noelle, answered every question and set my mind at ease explaining everything in detail. The office is clean and simply yet professional and comforting. I highly recommend Nuance and their staff. I am actually looking forward to my next treatment and future procedures.”
“I went for a consultation with Dr. Kundaria. After some significant time, he recommended an upper blepharoplasty. I had my procedure done a few weeks ago, and I am so pleased with everything. I look and feel like a million bucks. He called me the night of my procedure. He checked up on me during the long weekend. I didn’t have any pain, and the results are phenomenal. I highly recommend him to anyone. He is just awesome.”
“I recently went to Nuance Facial Plastics where I met Dr Kundaria. I met with him one on one and he took the time with me to answer all my questions and concerns. My initial thought was for me to come back and get my treatments but he took me right away to start the process. Everything he told me that would happen, did. He is very knowledgeable with all the procedures and was very thorough during the procedure. I’m excited for my next visit and I will not go to anyone else. Best doctor I have ever interacted with.”
“I initially visited Dr. Kundaria for a consultation. Dr. Kundaria answered all my questions thoroughly and took the time to explain treatments and procedures. After a thoughtful recommendation, I decided on Dysport and a facial laser treatment that day (my first experience with both treatments). Very happy with the results! I will definitely be returning and highly recommended Nuance Facial Plastics!”
