Blepharoplasty in Rochester, NY

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?

The cost of your treatment is going to vary widely depending on your current condition and your desired results. The best way to learn more about your personalized treatment cost is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kim. He’ll help you set up a payment plan that’s perfect for you and your lifestyle. Natural Face™ also offers financing options for your convenience.

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?

If you are a healthy adult with sagging or baggy eyelids and want relief, this procedure may be what you’ve been looking for. Patients with high blood pressure, dry eyes, heart disease or other conditions, blepharoplasty may need to talk to Dr. Kim before considering blepharoplasty. Ideal candidates for this procedure are 35 or older, are in good physical health and don’t smoke.

If you are interested in learning more about your blepharoplasty treatment, call us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kim today. He’ll go over your personalized treatment plan and help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.

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.
