When is Upper Eyelid Surgery Recommended?

Upper eyelid surgery may be recommended if you have any sagging or drooping of the skin that lies beneath the brow bone. This can occur as a result of aging and loss of elasticity in the skin and underlying tissue. When the skin droops down to cover part or all of the upper eyelid, an eyelid surgery may be a good option for you. This is especially true of the excess tissue is beginning to affect your vision.

It is important that you are in good health and not currently taking certain medications that could interfere with the procedure or healing. You should have realistic expectations of what the procedure can and cannot do. The goals for your appearance should align with the specific results that you can expect to achieve from the selected procedure. You should also be aware of, and accept, the potential risks and complications that can occur with surgery.

If the sagging tissue beneath the brow bone is caused by drooping eyebrows, your surgeon may recommend a brow lift instead. Once the weight of the eyebrows is lifted back to the natural brow bone, the sagging skin may be alleviated.
