Blepharoplasty in Oneida, NY
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics offer blepharoplasty to residents of Oneida, NY.
What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing excess skin, fat or muscle from the eyelid area. It can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelids or even both. The surgery can improve the appearance of the eye area by reducing bags under the eyes, correcting droopy upper lids and improving eyesight hindered by eyelid drooping. Blepharoplasty primarily corrects drooping lids and is not a procedure that can help with wrinkles or drooping eyebrows.
Who is a good candidate for eyelid surgery?
The best candidates for blepharoplasty are individuals over the age of 35 who are in overall good health. Certain medical conditions, like high blood pressure, heart disease and dry eye, can exclude a potential patient from having the procedure. It is also important that the muscular structure around the eyes of the potential eyelid surgery candidate be in good condition. However, for those who are over 35 years old and in generally good health but have drooping or sagging in the area of the eyelids, blepharoplasty can be a good option.
What does the procedure involve?
During the surgery, the doctor will make a tiny incision in the crease of the upper or lower eyelid as necessary. If the procedure requires removal of fatty tissue, the surgeon will create a very small incision inside the lower eye’s rim in a technique known as transconjunctival eyelid surgery. Frequently, this incision will extend to the outer eye corner. Fat and muscle tissue are then separated, and the excess fat is excised. The entire procedure is performed using only a relaxing sedative and a local anesthetic.
