An upper eye lift, also known as a 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.
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.
Dr. Troiano has specialized training in upper and lower eyelid cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and 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.
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, and surgical equipment, and refined care in a luxurious facility.

For patients who cannot undergo blepharoplasty or want to avoid surgery altogether, we have other solutions that are minimally-invasive. Botox and dermal fillers can sometimes be used to give a lifted appearance to the eyes in a select group of patients.
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 seven to ten days, with most patients seeing almost a full recovery at around two weeks after their surgery. 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.
