Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove upper eyelid skin.  This may be done for aesthetic improvement for the improvement of peripheral vision.  The procedure takes about 20 minutes and patients can generally expect to be bruised for 1-2 weeks.  Dr. Iyengar performs this procedure in the office and in the operating room under light sedation.  Our practice is unique in that we are the only private practice in the San Diego area that performs this procedure EVERYDAY.  Our practice also regularly fixes complications from this procedure after patients have had surgery elsewhere. Oculoplastic surgeons have the most experience in blepharoplasty and our approach focuses on providing a natural, refreshed,  appearance while preserving the muscle under the skin responsible for eyelid closure.  We are especially proud of the number of physician colleagues and health care workers in San Diego that continue to choose our practice for their own eyelid surgery.

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is best performed by a fellowship-trained oculoplastic surgeon who is a member of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.  Our practice sees members of the aesthetic and medical community for this procedure because they know our focus on safety and that we do this procedure more regularly than anyone in San Diego.  Many physicians also choose our practice for their own eyelid surgery because they know Dr. Iyengar regularly fixes the complications of plastic surgeons in the San Diego community.
