Your eyes tell a story when you first meet someone. But as we age, our upper eyelids start to sag, making us look much older than we are and can even obstruct the field of vision. Double fellowship-trained, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Ricky Sayal and Dr. Christine Lepoudre offer a range of eyelid surgery procedures, including Upper Blepharoplasty in Detroit - removing excess skin and muscle from the upper lid to those who have drooped lids which affect their appearance and impede their vision. Dr. Sayal invites you to come to see him at his clinic here in Detroit for your free consultation today!
Eyes don't lie
The upper eyelid is a complicated structure made up of many moving parts. CFPS offers their patients in Detroit Upper Blepharoplasty - a surgical procedure that addresses excess skin and muscle around the upper lids, thus giving you younger-looking eyes. The surgery can be done on anyone of any age who wants to see his or her appearance improved for different reasons.
Upper Blepharoplasty may be right for you if you have been troubled by upper eyelid bags or excess skin or muscles around your eyes. This procedure is minimally invasive, lasting an hour or two depending on the surgery required and providing noticeable results after only a few days. At your first consultation with one of our experienced Detroit plastic surgeons — after assessing any concerns you might have about how much extra skin or muscle there is around your eyes - they will go over what this procedure entails to provide information so that you can make an informed decision before going through it.
The best candidates for Upper Blepharoplasty are those with excess skin or muscle causing them to appear tired or fatigued, have sagging eyelids, a full upper lid, an inability to open their eyes fully, difficulty applying makeup, or a heavy look. Upturned corners of the eyes may also indicate that excess tissue is present. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will help you determine if you are a good candidate for Upper Blepharoplasty.
Improve Your Self Esteem
When opting to undergo Upper Blepharoplasty Detroit patients can expect their procedure to take between 60 minutes and two hours. While your doctor will discuss your case in detail during your initial consultation, their goal is typically to achieve symmetry of your upper eyelids by removing excess skin while preserving as much muscle function as possible. The first step in your upper blepharoplasty procedure involves numbing an area around each eye with a local anesthetic. Then, once you're comfortable, your doctor makes small incisions along your natural eyelid creases. Next, they remove any extra fat or loose skin before closing your incisions with stitches or surgical tape. During recovery, you may experience some swelling and bruising around your eyes; however, most patients can return to work within one week after their procedure.
Because Upper Blepharoplasty is not a reconstructive procedure, we recommend two weeks of recovery time before going back to work. Depending on your job, you can usually return to work within three to four days. If you have any swelling or redness after surgery, we recommend taking a few extra days off just in case. After that, it's all about getting back into your everyday routine!
Things Are Looking Up
It can take a few weeks to months before you start seeing your final results from Upper Blepharoplasty. The goal is to create more youthful-looking eyes while also correcting any issues you may have had that caused you to need surgery in the first place. This is typically achieved by having smaller eyelids and less tissue to create a more open, natural appearance. Your doctor will go over all these details during your consultation, so you know what to expect during recovery.

Because Upper Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure, Medicare or your insurance company may not cover it. However, your primary care physician can check to see if you are eligible before referring you to a board-certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation. Call us today to schedule a consultation with the Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in our Detroit office.
Before beginning your consultation, it's essential to understand exactly what is being addressed during Upper Blepharoplasty. Essentially, your doctor will reduce the extra skin and excess muscle in your upper eyelid to give you a smoother appearance. Meanwhile, lower blepharoplasty focuses mainly on removing fat deposits around your eyes—specifically under your eyes.
