Local Upper Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Cosmetic blepharoplasty of the upper eyelid involves surgically removing redundant eyelid skin. If required, the procedure can also be used for removing or contouring the fat around the eyes. The procedure aims at rejuvenating the area surrounding the eye. It renders a more youthful and rested facial appearance. Accomplished surgeons can perform the procedure under local anesthesia in a minimally invasive manner.

Men and women that notice the first signs of aging on their face resulting in droopy upper eyelids are usually the best candidates for upper eyelid blepharoplasty. Generally, candidates that choose to get blepharoplasty are genetically inclined to have naturally drooping eyelids which can make them look permanently aged or tired.
Procedure for Upper Blepharoplasty
Upper eyelid procedure can restore an alert, youthful and rested eye appearance. Patients can suffer from ptosis or severely droopy upper eyelids. This can cause aging lines to appear above the upper lids. Droopy upper eyelids can make your eyes appear partially closed even when awake.
Your surgeon will create an incision on the natural contours of the eyelid in a discreet location. The incision will be used for removing the loose upper eyelid skin. Fine sutures will be used for closing the incisions.
Nano Fat Grafting
Nano fat grafting is helpful in the case of under-eye hollows and upper sagging upper eyelids. The procedure involves pushing fat through a nano filter that turns it into thick and viscous liquid, rich in growth factors and stem cells. The fat helps in improving skin texture, quality, and tone rather than providing volume or structure.
The procedure is helpful in smoothing crow’s feet and improving the texture and color of the tear trough. This is one of the reasons why the procedure has become highly popular. It’s among the most sought-after procedures for treating under-eye hollows and dark circles. You don’t need to worry about side effects since the fat is removed from your own body.
Nano fat transfer or fat grafting offers an innovative solution for eliminating eyelid hollowness. This may be because of fat loss from aging, previous cosmetic eye surgery, or significant weight loss. Aging people frequently complain about under-eye shadows. This is generally due to sagging of the upper cheek and fat loss around the eye.
Under-eye shadows may arise in young patients as an inherited trait. Fat grafting can rejuvenate the eye area by filling in the hollows within the tear trough or under the eyes.
