Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery that can be done for overall enhancement. It may be done in conjunction with a brow lift surgery or a facelift, depending on the specific needs of the patient. There are two types of blepharoplasty – upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty.
Upper blepharoplasty is also known as upper eyelid surgery. This procedure removes excess skin that may develop on the upper eyelid and cause patients to look tired. During this procedure, Dr. Dennis Dass, MD will create an incision and remove excess skin. This is done in an area of the eyelid that is inconspicuous. This procedure is done to open up the eyes and make patients look more alert.
Lower blepharoplasty is also known as lower eyelid surgery. During this procedure, Dr. Dennis Dass, MD will remove any excess skin and fat that may accumulate on the lower eyelid and underneath the eyes, resulting in bags. This is done to rejuvenate the eye area and can be performed in conjunction with an upper blepharoplasty.
Both upper and lower blepharoplasty may be completed under either local or general anesthetics, and some patients combine these procedures with others to reduce the cost and facilitate healing from all surgeries at the same time, greatly reducing the time needed off of work and other activities. A consultation appointment is the perfect time to discuss the advantages of having several procedures done at once for overall enhancement.
