Eyelid Surgery and Upper Blepharoplasty. This 55-year-old male patient had a consultation with Dr. Tehrani to discuss having upper eyelid surgery. Our patient complained about having loose skin on his upper eyelids. Dr. Tehrani’s recommendation was for the patient to undergo an upper blepharoplasty, a procedure that takes about 90 minutes. An incision is made in the curved eyelid crease of the upper eyelid. This placement assures that the scar will be well hidden when it heals. Dr. Tehrani removes the previously determined amount of excess skin and fat, and the incision is closed with small sutures. There’s hardly a noticeable scar following healing. After the patient heals, he looks like a changed man, with no loose skin hooding over his eyes. Our patient looks and feels more confident with his new look. Dr. Tehrani has been in practice for many years, providing safe and natural-looking eyelid lifts for his patients in Manhattan and Long Island, as well as the entire New York area.
