Blepharoplasty in Cheektowaga, NY

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.

Dr. Sang W. Kim

Harvard Trained, Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon

Sang W Kim, MD is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery, nasal/sinus surgery, and hair restoration surgery.

I was working in Central New York and had an upcoming event and needed to get 2 areas of Dystport done. They were able to accommodate my schedule( as it was short notice) Dr. Kim’s entire staff was so friendly and welcoming!! During the procedure , even Nurse Dan held my hand and kept me smiling the whole time!! I was incredibly impressed with Dr Kim as he made sure he took the time to explain the process as well as not “ being rushed” something I have experienced with previous Doctors. I live in Florida but will be seeing Dr Kim from now on, and will be recommending their office to my fellow New Yorkers! It’s been almost 2 weeks since my appointment and the results are amazing!!! So happy! Thank you so much Dr Kim, Mary and the rest of the staff !

Dr. Kim is a world-class facial plastic surgeon. I’ve been to the top surgeons in the country from Beverly Hills to Miami and I found Dr. Kim to be superior. His face and neck lift were flawless and so natural that no one could tell I had anything done, but everyone said I looked ten years younger. As Syracuse is a discreet location, I would highly recommend anyone who wants a top notch face and neck lift to fly in. His bedside manner is as fantastic as his work. I can’t recommend Dr. Kim enough. I think he is the best Facial plastic surgeon in the country.

I am very happy with Dr. Kim and all of his staff. Not only did I have a surgical procedure done but I also go there every week for allergy shots and they couldn't be nicer. And Dr. Kim is awesome - - great bedside manner! I highly recommend them!!!

57 years old and wanted to start my new path in life retired...not looking tired! I did extensive research and sought out 5 surgeon recommendations. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Sang Kim for several reasons: 1 - He specialized in and only performs /neck surgeries, 2 - Dr. Kim is younger and probably more newly established, but there was no doubt that he is a perfectionist and a professional in his field, 3 - He is patient and really listens. I felt confident and trusted that he was giving me his best recommendation for my concerns, 4 - He didn't try to push unnecessary or extra procedures, 5 - I was impressed by how obvious it was that Dr. Kim's administrative and medical staff liked him and respected his work. But most of all, I am extremely satisfied with the results of my face lift!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kim. He is the most patient, professional, and personable physician I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Instead of being rushed through the practice, every member of his staff made me feel welcome and important from the moment I walked through the door. He wouldn't perform a single procedure on me until he fully answered every minute question I had (all of which he eloquently and candidly answered); you can tell that his formal training was exceptional. His bedside manner and skilled technique easily make him one of the best kept secrets in Syracuse. I have referred numerous friends to him who have also, in turn, referred their friends. Make the consult and see for yourself... you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Kim and his staff were incredible. I had a face lift done this past summer and I was treated with dignity and respect by everyone. Dr. Kim is an exceptional surgeon and one of the nicest and kindest doctors I have ever met. I had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I recently went back to Dr. Kim for injections. Again my experience was wonderful. He explains everything he is going to do and what to expect. I didn't bruise and I love the fact that he doesn't overdo. He and his staff are just incredible. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
