Blepharoplasty (Upper and lower eyelid surgery)

Blepharoplasty is a surgery designed to remove puffiness, fine lines, and sagging skin from the upper or lower eyelids. Good candidates for blepharoplasty are people of any age or background who feel that they always look tired and have chronic eye bags or puffiness around the eyes.

Puffiness or drooping around the eyes is often caused by excess fat or skin in the orbital area, around the eye sockets. Blepharoplasty is  method of improving contour, tightening the skin, and creating a smoother, more refreshed appearance.

The most common form of blepharoplasty uses a camouflaged incision in the crease of the upper eyelid and another just below the lash line of the lower eyelid. In certain instances, an incision can be completely hidden inside the lower eyelid, in what is known as the tranconjunctival approach. When using either method, Dr. Mittelman takes special care to keep incisions as inconspicuous as possible. After the incisions are made, excess tissue is removed to rejuvenate and tighten the eyelid.
