Dr. James Rosing, board certified plastic surgeon, performs upper eyelid skin excess removal (blepharoplasty) in the office, under local anesthesia. The procedure takes 45 minutes and has one to two weeks of recovery time. "Upper blepharoplasty is one of the most underutilized plastic surgery procedures by both women as well as men. I think for most people, contemplating any procedure performed near the eye is anxiety provoking. Though I can quite confidently say, patients whom have undergone the procedure consistently report one thing; they wish they had done it sooner. The procedure is delicate, though straight forward, with subtle though notable results, and has a short recovery."
