Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Introduction: Cosmetic Upper Blepharoplasty involves removing excess skin from the upper eyelid to enhance the appearance of the upper eyelids.

Methods: Markings were made for the inferior incision on the upper eyelid between 8-10 mm above the upper lash line.  Forceps are used to pinch the excess upper eyelid skin in the middle, nasal, and temporal, aspects of the upper eyelid.  Markings are then made superiorly at the middle, nasal, and temporal points and are connected. Toothed forceps are used to pinch the excess upper eyelid skin, using the markings as a guide.  Iris scissor is used to excise the pinched excess skin and the underlying orbicularis muscle. The skin between the two eyelids was closed.

Conclusions: In our experience, cosmetic upper blepharoplasty is an efficient way to enhance the appearance of the eyes.
