Eyelid Blepharoplasty Surgery Improves Vision, Lessens Discomfort and Enhances Appearance

Eyelid blepharoplasty surgery is a prime example of what Dr. Robert Schwarcz offers his patients looking for a cosmetic and functional adjustment to their appearance. Not only does blepharoplasty surgery improve the look of your eyes, it also has the opportunity to improve vision.

Without sagging or excess skin in the way, your eyes can be focused on what is being looked at. Some cases of excess skin around the upper and lower eyelids can be more severe than others. Depending on your age, health, and skin laxity around the eyes, Dr. Schwarcz can work with you to achieve your optimal goal.

A blepharoplasty surgery can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids individually, or both if necessary. During the procedure, both excess skin and fat deposits are removed. Dr. Schwarcz is a board-certified oculoplastic surgeon who has received special training and is a member of the American Society of Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons.
