Dr. Brent Cabell Faulkner of Faulkner Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics has treated cosmetic surgery patients with a variety of procedures for nearly twenty years. As a trusted Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Faulkner has repeatedly been recognized as an area top doctor over the span of his practice. With a variety of cosmetic services offered, Dr. Faulkner is able to provide a number of options that are best for you.

Enhancing Your Appearance with an Upper Eyelid Surgery

Cosmetic eyelid surgery, or an upper blepharoplasty, is popular because Dr. Faulkner does this procedure in-office under local anesthetic – making it quick and easy to schedule and allowing you to avoid the hospital operating room. This procedure improves the appearance of the upper eyelids to give a rejuvenated appearance, which results in a more rested and alert look.

Upper blepharoplasty is a procedure to reshape the upper eyelid skin and soft tissue,” explained Dr. Faulkner. “What I love about this procedure is that it provides fairly immediate results.”


Are You A Good Candidate for an Upper Blepharoplasty?

If you have sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelids, or heavy and hooded upper eyelids then Dr. Faulkner may consider you a candidate for an upper blepharoplasty. He recommends scheduling a consultation with his team at Faulkner Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics to further determine if this procedure is right for you. During the consultation, you will have an opportunity to share your goals, ask questions and learn more about the procedure. According to Dr. Faulkner, “The goal for most of my patients is to improve the crispness and appearance of the eyelid crease.”

Best Ways to Prepare for Upper Blepharoplasty Surgery with Dr. Faulkner:

The greatest benefit of an in-office procedure under local anesthetic is you are avoiding the operating room. This means preparation for the procedure is quick and routine.

  • Be well-rested. It is recommended patients have seven to nine hours of sleep before the day of surgery.
  • Be well-hydrated.
  • Do not take any blood thinners such as Aspirin, Advil, or any Ibuprofen 7-10 days prior to the procedure.

After-care for Lasting Results and Noticeable Benefits

Upper eyelid surgery is a rewarding procedure. Results will appear gradually as the swelling and bruising subside to reveal a smooth, better-defined eyelid and surrounding region, and an alert and rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Faulkner points out, “The after-care for an upper blepharoplasty is fairly routine with a focus on healing the incision for one week until sutures are removed. I inform my patients not to do any strenuous activity for generally four to six weeks following the procedure.”


“The results are fairly immediate, especially at the two-week mark, when most of the swelling has resolved. The results are typically long-lasting. However, one will still be undergoing the aging process,” says Dr. Faulkner.

A few benefits Dr. Faulkner shares, “There are physical improvements in the aesthetics of the upper eyelids, giving one a more refreshed and likely younger look. This can lead to an improvement in your self-esteem and confidence.”
