Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery to remove excess, loose skin and reduce prominent fat pads when present. This surgery can help reduce the fatigued appearance that comes with excess skin folds on the eyelids. Blepharoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed. Age, allergies (eyelid swelling) and genetics (often runs in families) are contributing factors to the development of excess eyelid skin. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids and the surgery should be customized for each individual. Dr. Reistad has performed thousands of blepharoplasty surgeries on both men and women. Additionally, Dr. Reistad has experience with Asian blepharoplasty and the variations found in the anatomy of the Asian eyelid. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is sometimes covered by insurance if the excess skin significantly blocks vision.
