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.

Get in Touch
The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog is here to give you the most honest, up to date information from us to you, in our “sponsored by nobody” style. Our discussions will include topics that interest our readers, with a focus on facial plastic surgery. We will use this space to answer frequently asked questions and also discuss current trends, new products, and emergent technologies. Information is widely available on the internet, but good information that is not marketing material in disguise is hard to find, and often times constitutes a majority of what patients read as their “research”. The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog differs, as we are an independent practice that has no exclusive deals with any vendors, companies, or other entities that would influence the quality and honesty of the information we provide you.
Our First Series
One of the most common discussions that we have with patients are about the differences between products that we offer, as there is some overlap. The single most common question we get asked is, “what is the difference between Botox and Dysport?”. Our first three-part series will explore the differences between the three neuromodulators currently available in the USA, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Several topics, such as differences in the strength, longevity, or “spread” between the products will be discussed. Despite being broken into a three-part series, there is quite a lot of information, as the information from these posts are rooted in science, and the claims are supported by multiple articles published in high quality, peer-reviewed medical literature.
