We know that signs of aging in the eyes can make you look older. But those with drooping, sagging eyelids know that these concerns can also make you appear less vibrant and more tired than you feel. With our Boston upper blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery) you can not only look years younger, but you can also look perky and alert throughout your day.
Dr. Michael Tantillo and Dr. Christopher Lee are premier Boston plastic surgeons with both the technical skill and artistic eye needed for stellar cosmetic results. At Clareo, we are dedicated to making your upper blepharoplasty a success.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure that is meant to correct sagging skin, puffiness, or drooping of the eyelid. Using very delicate incisions and strategic adjustments of tissue, fat, and skin, a plastic surgeon can smooth and lift the appearance of the eyelids. This provides the patient with a youthful, brighter look that can also help them appear more alert and awake.
This procedure addresses issues specifically in the upper eyelid. These may include aesthetic concerns as well as functional in those who have drooping eyelids that affect their vision. This surgery should be performed by an experienced surgeon who can skillfully and artfully remove just the right amount of skin and fat to avoid an overly tight or surprised-looking result.
Aging eyelids or hooded eyes can not only make you look older, but they can also give you a tired or dull appearance. An upper blepharoplasty surgery can reverse this to give you a bright, alert, vibrant look. For some people, it can also take years off of your face. Enjoy positive benefits like:
Dr Lee’s message to patients considering upper blepharoplasty: The eyelids are an important structure of the face both functionally and aesthetically. They also tend to heal extremely well and leave very little evidence of any work at all. Upper blepharoplasty is a very low-risk and quick procedure that will leave you looking younger without any obvious stigmata of surgery. Your friends will see your brighter, more open eyes and know you look younger without knowing what improvements you have made.
Dr Tantillo’s message to patients considering upper blepharoplasty: It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul; a blepharoplasty opens up that window and brightens the eyes. Blepharoplasty results in a natural youthful appearance of the eyes and upper face, lending vim and verve to one’s appearance.

Making the decision to undergo plastic surgery is a very personal one, and we want to ensure that all of our patients are well-informed and confident throughout their entire experience at Clareo Plastic Surgery. During an upper blepharoplasty consultation, we will examine your eyelids, and make recommendations for a comprehensive treatment plan that will ensure you understand the entire process from preparation through follow-up.
This procedure usually lasts approximately one hour and is typically performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation; intravenous sedation or general anesthesia can be used if the patient prefers. A precise incision is made along the crease of the eyelid, which, when healed, is nearly totally hidden. Your surgeon will very carefully remove skin, excess fatty tissue, and close the incisions.
Upper blepharoplasty recovery is typically very mild, and most patients feel well enough and are comfortable enough with their healing to go out socially or back to work within about five to seven days. Most patients do experience some amount of swelling and bruising, however, regular icing, over-the-counter pain medications, and keeping the head elevated are typically enough to help symptoms go away with treatment at home.
Recognized as both RealSelf and Vitals Top Doctors, both Dr. Tantillo and Dr. Lee are highly trained and skilled plastic surgeons in Boston who understand that getting to know each patient and personalizing their treatment for optimal results is key to the overall success of each procedure. The entire staff at Clareo is committed to providing unmatched expertise and patient care.
