Blepharoplasty in Skaneateles, NY

Dr. Sang W. Kim, board-certified surgeons for the Natural Face™ Clinics, offer blepharoplasty for patients in Skaneateles, New York.

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a type of plastic surgery performed to remove excess fat, skin or muscle from the upper or lower eyelid area. The surgery may be performed on both. Blepharoplasty improves the feeling and appearance of sagging upper lids, bags under the eyes or any difficulties with sight caused by eyelid drooping or ptosis. Though this procedure is corrective for drooping lids, the procedure is not designed as an effective corrective measure for wrinkling or drooping brows.

Who are good candidates for eyelid surgery?

People who are physically healthy and over the age of 35 are the most likely eligible candidates for eyelid surgery. Patients with conditions, such as dry eyes, high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease, often are forced to forgo the procedure for medical safety reasons. The supporting bone and muscular structures around the eyes may also prohibit a candidate from undergoing this procedure. However, if you are in satisfactory health and possess or suffer from drooping or sagging upper or lower lids, this procedure may be to your benefit.

What does this procedure involve?

In this procedure, the surgeon places a careful incision along the delicate creases of the upper lid and, depending on the circumstances, just along the lower rim of the patient’s eye. If fatty tissue is removed, then the surgeon will then perform what is known as transconjunctival eyelid surgery. This surgery places a small incision just inside the lower rim of the eye. The incision frequently extends from the inside to the outer corner of the eye. Fatty tissue is separated from muscle tissue so the excess fat may be removed. The procedure is performed using only local anesthetic and a sedative for relaxation.
