What is eyelid blepharoplasty surgery? You may be wondering the benefits and reasons one would undergo this cosmetic procedure. Several considerations and goals are involved. During a blepharoplasty procedure, the baggy, sagging, excess skin on both the upper and lower eyelids are surgically removed. As a result, peripheral vision can also improve if the skin was interfering with your line of sight.
During Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty surgery is typically performed as an outpatient surgery. Board-certified oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwarcz will make surgical incisions in the creases of the upper and lower eyelid to preserve a natural appearance and minimize any scarring. He will then remove the excess fat and tissue surrounding both lids.
This cosmetic procedure can be performed simultaneous to other enhancements such as a brow lift which can reverse years of aging and pull the skin together for a tighter appearance. In addition to cosmetic surgeries, Dr. Schwarcz is able to perform reconstructive surgeries including eyelid ptosis repair, ectropion, entropion, tear duct repair, and lower eyelid retraction.
