Upper Eyelid Surgery
One of the most common reasons people seek upper eyelid surgery is that they look in the mirror and see that their upper eyes make them look more tired or older than they feel inside. Some patients will say that their friends and co-workers will ask if they are mad or tired even though the person does not feel this in any way. With over 20 years of specialized facial surgical experience, Steven Mobley, MD is one of the leading cosmetic upper eyelid surgeons in the Mountain West region and has both written medical papers as well as lectured on the topic of eyelid surgery extensively.
Upper eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure that can be performed in either the office setting (oral sedation plus local anesthesia) or in the OR setting where it can be performed under either IV sedation or a full general anesthetic. The patient’s choice of anesthesia and the surgical setting are discussed as part of every consultation experience.
One advantage to Upper eyelid surgery is that it has one of the shorter recovery times of all facial surgeries while at the same time having a substantial “wow” factor as the eyes are indeed the windows to the soul.
While each patient is unique, statistically speaking, the most common time to have cosmetic upper eyelid surgery is in the 40s. However, eyelid surgery can sometimes be offered to patients as young as their late 20s and is routinely performed on those over the age of 70. Whether you are in the younger or older age range for this procedure, a beautiful and natural looking result is always our goal under under the care of Dr. Mobley’s skillful hands. Our before and after photos, along with our online reviews speak volumes to Dr. Mobley’s attention to detail in every case where he blends his 20+ years of surgical expertise with his eye for artistry to give the patient a natural result that gives the eyes energy and a visual “pop” but never leaving the patient looking over done or pulled too tight.
Upper Eyelid Surgery and the Eyebrows
Although not as common, some patients who think they need upper eyelid surgery will actually achieve a better cosmetic result by adding or having only cosmetic brow-lifting surgery. During every patient’s consultation, clinical photos will be taken and analyzed and if you fall into this category, Dr. Mobley will go over all of this with you to fully educate you on your options.

Insurance and Upper Eyelid Surgery
In selected cases it may be appropriate to use insurance benefits to cover part of your cosmetic eyelid procedure. Each case is unique and our staff is well trained to navigate the insurance processes if this is the appropriate care for a given patient’s specific case. All of this will be covered in detail during the consultation process.
Blepharoplasty – Putting it all Together
In summary, there are many different types of cosmetic eyelid surgery broadly categorized as: upper eyelid, lower eyelid, and sometimes functional blepharoplasty. While patients often think of the upper and lower eyelids together, Dr. Mobley, as an experienced expert in facial cosmetic surgery, tends to view these as two different areas of the human face that need to be in balance for maximum facial beauty. An upper eye lift will remove the excess skin and fat that can develop on the upper eyelids. Alternatively, a lower lid surgery removes what is commonly called “bags” and wrinkled skin that appears underneath the eyes. He has found many patients prefer to have both procedures done at the same time for optimal results and simultaneous recovery. Many patients who want better looking eyes often receive additionally cosmetic enhancements with chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and cosmetic fat injections. There are links to these complimentary procedures on this page. Feel free to explore more.
