The eyelids are especially revealing when it comes to aging. Laxity in the skin around the eyes is a natural part of the maturing process, but loose skin in the eyelids can lead to aesthetic dissatisfaction as well as functional impairment. Upper blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that corrects loose and excess skin in the upper eyelids to restore youthfulness to the face. Using modest corrective techniques, Dr. Renato Calabria offers his male patients brighter, revitalized eyes while preserving their natural masculinity.
The Benefits of Upper Blepharoplasty

Dr. Calabria’s Upper Blepharoplasty Technique
Dr. Calabria believes that the aging male face should maintain a somewhat rugged aesthetic, and he applies this principle to all of his male-specific facial rejuvenation procedures. When performing upper blepharoplasty, Dr. Calabria is careful to excise minimal eyelid skin and fat to retain a youthful fullness in the eyes. Upper blepharoplasty patients enjoy natural yet stunning results without compromising the integrity of their eyes.
After an extensive consultation, Dr. Calabria will recommend which technique will help you achieve the best results possible. He often utilizes multiple techniques to customize your procedure. Tailoring each procedure to the individual allows Dr. Calabria to produce natural-looking results that highlight your facial contours while maintaining the masculine qualities of your facial structure.Schedule a Consultation
Because excess eyelid skin is removed through an incision created along the natural eyelid crease, any scarring is virtually undetectable. Dr. Calabria takes a conservative approach to upper blepharoplasty that prevents the tell-tale signs of having undergone plastic surgery.
Dr. Calabria believes that fixing an overdone upper blepharoplasty requires fat grafting in the upper fold of the eyelid. The fat graft fills in the emptiness created by an over-skeletonized skin and fat excision, vivifying the tissue around the eyes.
You may experience minimal discomfort after upper blepharoplasty, which can be controlled using oral pain medication. Apply cold compresses to the eyes for a few days to control swelling and promote healing.
Upper blepharoplasty may be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as endoscopic brow lift or transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty, if necessary. Dr. Calabria believes his most important job as a plastic surgeon is to guide his patients in their unique cosmetic surgery journeys. During a personal consultation, he will develop a treatment plan that best addresses your needs.
