When are you ready for an upper eyelid lift?
An upper eyelid lift or upper blepharoplasty is one of the most common procedures I perform in my NY oculoplastic and cosmetic surgery practice. It’s an elegant and often dramatic way to make your entire face look younger, less tired, and warmer without looking plastic. I use special refinements to ensure there is a natural-looking result, including fat grafting, laser skin resurfacing, fat preservation, crease stabilization, and other techniques.
But how do you know if you’re ready for an upper blepharoplasty?

What to do when it’s time for an upper blepharoplasty
If your eyelids fit one or more of the above criteria, you may be ready for an upper blepharoplasty consultation. While I see many prospective clients in my New York offices who travel from a distance to address their cosmetic eyelid concerns, I suggest you start by seeking a local oculoplastic surgeon. In the United States, there is an eyelid surgery specialist directory maintained by ASOPRS, an organization that oversees oculoplastic surgery training and certification. You can also seek out recommendations from friends or family members who have already had the procedure.
You should bring a list of questions for your potential surgeon, including “how many of these procedures do you do and how often do your clients need revisions ?”, “can I see examples of patients that have similar issues ?”, and “what can I expect to look like after the procedure ?”.
Upper blepharoplasty is a high-satisfaction procedure and in skilled-hands you should expect to end up looking like a younger version of you.
