Board-certified surgeons Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics offer blepharoplasty for patients residing in Cheektowaga, NY.
What Is Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to remove excess muscle, skin, or fat from the eyelid area. Surgery can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids, or on both at once. Blepharoplasty drastically improves the look of “droopy eyes,” bags under the eyes, and the appearance of “hooded eyes.” It can also correct vision difficulties caused by ptosis or a drooping of the eyelids into the field of vision. Blepharoplasty is not designed to correct wrinkled or droopy brows, as it focuses only on the area around the eyelids.
Who Are Good Candidates For Eyelid Surgery?
Physically healthy people age 35 or older are usually the best candidates for eyelid surgery. Patients with certain medical conditions, including high blood pressure, dry eyes, or cardiovascular diseases are not ideal candidates for blepharoplasty. Another consideration is the structure around the eyes and if it will support the surgical procedure. Most people who are in good health, however, can undergo the procedure and find relief from dropping and sagging upper or lower eyelids.
What Does Eyelid Surgery Involve?
The surgeon will make a very small incision along the folds of the upper eyelid, as well as on the perimeter of the lower rim of the eye if both lids are being corrected. If excess fatty tissue is present, the surgeon will perform transconjunctival eyelid surgery, which involves a small incision just inside the eye’s lower rim. The incision may extend to the outer corner of the eye. Fatty and muscle tissue are separated, and the excess fat is removed. The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis using a local anesthetic and a relaxing sedative.
