Abstract

Summary: Periorbital tissues are a keystone in facial beauty and a representation of youth. The aesthetically pleasing and youthful upper eyelids are full, with a defined tarsal upper lid crease and with smooth, taut pretarsal and preseptal skin. The upper blepharoplasty is a critical component of any facial rejuvenation procedure. This five-step procedure provides key steps in the correction of upper lid age-related changes and provides a reliable and reproducible method of achieving excellent results. Furthermore, the addition of fractionated fat restores volume and youthfulness of the upper lid, and also improves the skin quality of the upper lid.
