Upper Eyelid Surgery (Upper Blepharoplasty) can:

  • Smooth out, tighten loose, wrinkled eyelid tissues
  • Remove "puffy" fatty pockets above the eye
  • Lift eyelid tissues so they no longer hide the natural lid crease or impede vision
  • Create a more open, positive and natural appearance

Planning Your Procedure

The eyes communicate your energy, emotion, and inner beauty; it is very important for you to select a plastic surgeon who offers the highest levels of precision in order to create natural elegant results that look right for you. Dr. Raffi Hovsepian works with you to understand and meet your upper eyelid aesthetic goals.

Dr. Hovsepian will examine your eye tissue thoroughly and listen to your goals before developing an upper eyelid enhancement plan, to create the changes needed to meet your desired aesthetic look. His techniques can correct droopy eyelids that result from aging or genetic characteristics.

Eyelid surgery requires only a small incision along the lash line or a "scar-less" incision along the eyelid's inner surface. Dr. Hovsepian has extensive experience in facial cosmetic surgery and takes a minimalistic approach in order to avoid removing excess tissue and ensure natural results.

Upper Eyelid Surgery (Upper Blepharoplasty)

Before your procedure, Dr. Hovsepian and his aesthetic team will meet with you to make sure you understand your procedure and recovery thoroughly. He will also answer any questions you may have. Safety, privacy, comfort, and excellence in treatment with trusting compassionate care are the hallmark of Dr. Hovsepian’s patient experience.

You will need to begin fasting 8 hours prior to your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water prior to coming into the Beverly Hills surgery center. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.

Upper eyelid surgery is performed under general anesthesia, meaning you will be asleep and feel nothing during surgery. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may stay in a near-by aftercare facility or hotel. The surgery itself takes about an hour, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. Afterward, you will return to your home, hotel or aftercare facility located a short distance from the surgical center.
