Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Upper (Eyelid) Blepharoplasty
Lower (Eyelid) Blepharoplasty
Creation of Upper Eyelid Fold

Eyelid Surgery may be done either on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid or both. It can also be used to transform an Asian eyelid (absent upper eyelid fold) to make them more natural-looking. Scars will usually fall along your lower lash line or in your upper lid crease and will become indiscernible within a few weeks. Excess skin, muscle and fats maybe removed during the procedure.
At Dr. Amy Anti-Aging and Cosmetic Surgery Center, the procedure usually starts with a comprehensive and individualized approach to Eyelid surgery, noting the guest’s concern and safety as the top priority. Guests are then evaluated giving emphasis on their present medical conditions. Allergies, bleeding problems and medications taken are to be reviewed and when needed a cardio-pulmonary clearance will be required. Certified expert doctors will then provide you with the best option on what procedure will be appropriate for you.
