Upper Blepharoplasty Beverly Hills, CA

Upper Blepharoplasty

Restore Your Eyes’ Bright & Energized Look

The eyes are the most important part of the face and should be highlighted, not hidden. With age, skin laxity and changes to the underlying tissues can cause the upper eyelids to appear heavy or tired, gradually drooping over the eyes and, in some cases, impairing the field of vision.

Sagging or hooded upper eyelids can also make makeup application more difficult, as there is no smooth skin to serve as a canvas. Face specialist Dr. Patrick Davis takes care to open the eyes in a way that looks natural through various cosmetic procedures. Such procedures include Upper Blepharoplasty (eyelid), Lower Blepharoplasty, and Brow Lift. For patients with concerns about their upper eyelids, an upper blepharoplasty offers long-lasting rejuvenating results.
