Vancouver Area Blepharoplasty for the Upper Lids

Print This Page

You may have had heavy upper eyelids your whole life, or this may be a condition that has developed with age. In any case, overhanging, droopy eyelids can contribute to a tired, aged appearance, and may even interfere with your vision. For patients from in and around Vancouver, blepharoplasty with Dr. Mathew Mosher can correct this condition, and leave you with more open, alert-looking eyes.

Patients who come to Dr. Mosher for upper eyelid surgery often complain of looking sad or tired, even when they are rested and happy. This is because excess, wrinkled skin overhanging the eyes can change your expression and create the appearance of fatigue or tension. By tightening this excess tissue and skin, Dr. Mosher can "open up" the eye area and create a beautifully contoured, refreshed looking eye. Frequently, a minimally invasive Browlift or Browpexy will be performed along with upper eyelid surgery to better rejuvenate the brow and forehead areas. Dr. Mosher also specializes in creating an upper eyelid crease for Asian patients, a procedure known as "Asian blepharoplasty."

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty of the upper lids is surgery that is performed to tighten excess skin and reduce fat from the area which may be wrinkled, sagging, and may even obscure peripheral vision. It may be performed alone or in conjunction with a brow lift, which addresses a sagging brow and wrinkled forehead. Some of our patients in the Vancouver area need only blepharoplasty of the upper lids, while others may choose upper and lower eyelid surgery to look more youthful and awake.

Asian Blepharoplasty

Patients of Asian descent may have an eyelid crease that is very shallow to non-existent, which causes the skin beneath the brow to overhang the lashes and even part of the eye. These patients also tend to have thicker skin than Caucasian patients, and more fat in the upper lid. A highly trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Mosher understands the unique needs of Asian blepharoplasty patients, and can make the precise alterations necessary to create a more open, contoured upper eyelid that enhances rather than changes your appearance.

Your British Columbia Blepharoplasty Procedure

This surgery is typically performed at our surgery centre using local anesthesia with sedation or light general anesthesia. Dr. Mosher makes a well-concealed incision along the natural crease of the upper eyelid through which he tightens lax skin and reduces excess fat. In some cases, Dr. Mosher will alter the muscle that lifts the eyelid to correct drooping and open up the eye.

Recovery and Results

For a few days after your procedure you will probably experience mild discomfort, which is easily managed with pain medication and cool compresses. Swelling and bruising typically subside over the course of 1 to 3 weeks, during which time your results will become more noticeable. At YES Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery Centre, we can help you enhance your results with skin care treatments at our Medspa. Many blepharoplasty patients add BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments and dermal facial filler injections for a more complete rejuvenation of the upper face.

If you want blepharoplasty information, request a consultation with Dr. Mosher at his practice in Langley. You can also call YES Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery Centre at (604) 888-9378 and one of our helpful staff members will schedule your appointment.
