  • Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Background: This Bay Area woman came in with her daughter to consult Dr. Mabrie about the loose tissues around her eyes. Over time, she had noticed a lot of 'extra skin' above her eyelids, and was actually beginning to have difficulty seeing traffic lights when driving. When she asked her primary care physician about it, he referred her to Dr. Mabrie to discuss upper blepharoplasty, an Oakland area eyelid surgery.

Dr. Mabrie's Assessment: "This is a case of dermatochalasis, the medical term for excess or hanging skin that drapes over the eyelid crease. The treatment for this condition is elegant and straightforward, requiring a relatively quick cosmetic surgery in San Francisco. To correct the upper eyelid, I remove the excess skin through a small incision before suturing the incision closed. I really enjoy performing blepharoplasty procedures, and patients are frequently surprised with the ease of recovery."

Procedure: This woman received upper-lid blepharoplasty performed by Dr. Mabrie to lift and remove the loose excess skin that was blocking her vision.

3 Month Follow-Up: This patient is very pleased that the excess skin above her eyes has been removed, and the skin that was hooding her eyes along the lash line has been pulled back. Her field of vision is much better and she feels and looks great!
