I saw a video of an eyelid surgery procedure and it looked like they completely removed the upper eyelid and then reattached it. I was shocked! Is this what really happens?
I always wonder how patients watch You Tube videos prior to their own surgical procedures. What goes on in the videos without the proper guidance looks horrible. Having said that, upper eyelid surgery is actually very non-invasive in most cases. I have performed upper lid blepharoplasty under local anesthesia and no sedation. The eyelid is never completely detached in upper eyelid surgery but a small amount of skin and fat are removed during the procedure.
