Your upper eyelids play a significant role in framing and enhancing the beauty of your eyes. Factors that detract from this beauty are related to aging caused by genetics, sun exposure, and weight fluctuations, among other causes.
These changes vary from patient to patient, from having more hooded eyelids due to sagging skin and excess fat, to drooping (or ptotic) eyelids from fat or volume loss. Upper blepharoplasty offers a transformative solution. This cosmetic procedure focuses on rejuvenating your upper eyelids and restoring a youthful, refreshed look.

For patients in West Palm Beach upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that treats common issues like excess skin and bulging on the upper eyelid.
With the combined effects of long term sun exposure, changes in weight and hormones, and the inevitable forces of gravity, our skin on the entire face, and especially around the eyes, can start to lose its elasticity and tightness. Our eyes are one of the first areas of the face to start showing signs of aging and can make you seem tired or sad when you are anything but that! As the upper eyelid changes, it can also change the way you apply makeup and even how well you can see. An upper eye lift addresses these changes to help reverse signs of aging and rejuvenate the appearance.
Upper blepharoplasty offers numerous advantages that can significantly enhance your quality of life. Some of the key benefits of this transformative treatment include:
These benefits, combined with the expertise of Dr. Troiano and the dedicated team at Troiano Facial Plastics, make upper blepharoplasty an ideal choice for those seeking to enhance the beauty and vitality of their eyes.
An upper eye lift involves making careful incisions along the natural folds of the skin to help hide any visible scarring. If determined to be necessary at the time of your consultation, special maneuvers are performed to reshape excess fat and even suspend the brow to a higher position.
If you're interested in upper blepharoplasty West Palm Beach facial plastic surgeon Chelsea Troiano, MD has specialized training in upper and lower eyelid cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. She is adept at customizing each procedure to fit each patient’s desired goals while respecting the individual’s facial contours. Following your aftercare instructions carefully can reduce the risk of visible scarring after cosmetic surgery.
The recovery period for eyelid surgery typically lasts 2 weeks, with some individuals requiring additional healing time. Dr. Troiano generally recommends taking two weeks off work, although many patients return after just one week. The initial 7-10 days following surgery will likely see the highest level of bruising or swelling. Significant pain is uncommon during blepharoplasty recovery. Non-dissolvable sutures, if used, are typically removed in a follow-up visit after one week.
To minimize swelling, apply cool compresses or ice the eye area at least four times a day. Maintain an upright sleeping position and use prescribed eye drops or ointments while keeping the eyelids clean. Contact lens wearers should refrain from wearing them for at least two weeks. The majority of swelling subsides within two weeks, but it may take up to six months for complete resolution and optimal results. Blepharoplasty scars typically fade within a year, becoming barely noticeable.
Patients who want to correct the appearance of loose, sagging skin around the upper eyelid are excellent candidates for an eye lift procedure. To undergo a cosmetic enhancement procedure, you must be in good general health. It is recommended that smokers plan to quit as it delays healing and leads to inferior surgical results.
Our procedures are also customized to suit every patient’s individual needs appropriately. This means we calculate costs and fees for treatment based on the unique approach taken for each patient. This will always factor in technical needs, like the cost of Dr. Troiano and her team, surgical equipment, and refined care in a luxurious facility.

As a general rule, most health insurance will not cover elective surgery. Cosmetic procedures such as blepharoplasty or an upper eye lift generally will not be applicable for insurance coverage.
The recovery for an upper eye lift surgery is generally two weeks. However, it is important to remember that it takes the body an entire year to fully heal from any surgical procedure. This means that incision line texture and color will continue to improve over the course of time.
For eyelid surgery, local anesthesia is used to numb the area for your comfort and to help ensure you won’t experience pain during the procedure. While you will likely experience a degree of swelling and bruising during the recovery period, most Palm Beach upper blepharoplasty patients do not experience significant pain.
Blepharoplasty is considered a safe procedure with minimal risks. Like most cosmetic surgeries, there are some associated risks, such as swelling, bruising, bleeding at the incision points, and infection. Working with an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Troiano ensures these risks are minimal.
Upper Blepharoplasty is generally considered a permanent procedure. However, it will not halt the natural aging process, and many patients may consider a second procedure after about 10-15 years.
