The eyes are the first things we notice about someone, and we all want to make our best first impression. Sometimes as we age, the eyelids start to droop and cause issues with our eyesight and appearance. This is where the blepharoplasty steps in. We are happy to provide blepharoplasty for residents of Rochester, NY and the neighboring communities.
What is Blepharoplasty?
As we age, our skin tends to lose its elasticity, which can wreak havoc on our appearance and the functionality of your bodies. With our eyes, it’s common to see our eyelids go from alert and awake to looking tired and droopy. This can cause an unsightly appearance and trouble with our eyesight. The blepharoplasty rids your eyes of excess skin and fat to give your eyes a more refreshed and youthful look.

How is a Blepharoplasty Performed?
This procedure is done in-office with a local anesthetic and mild sedative. During your blepharoplasty, Dr. Kim will improve the appearance and functionality of the upper and lower eyelids. This is done by making a small incision along the crease of the upper eyelid and along the lower rim of the eye. From there, the excess fat and skin in the area are removed. Because the incisions lie in the natural creases of the eye, there won’t be noticeable scarring after your procedure.
How Much Does Blepharoplasty Cost in Rochester, NY?

What is Recovery from Blepharoplasty Like?
Recovery from your blepharoplasty takes only about seven to 10 days. During this time, you’ll want to recruit a friend or close family member to drive you home from your procedure and help you with any tasks you may need assistance with. Dr. Kim advises you take pain medication as needed to help you stay comfortable throughout recovery, and that you ice your eyes while keeping your head elevated to aid in the healing process. You should refrain from watching too much TV during your recovery time as well.
Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
