If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then sagging or drooping eyelids are the old curtains over those windows that need to be replaced. Excess skin around the eyelids that obscures the natural folds on the upper region is a common problem associated with the aging process. Patients visit us seeking help with a puffy or swollen appearance around the upper eyelids that creates a tired, sad demeanor. For these problems and more, eyelid surgery is a fairly simple procedure designed to rejuvenate your appearance.
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, surgically removes excess skin and tissue around the eyes through a hidden incision located within the natural folds of the upper eyelid. In some cases, excess fat is redistributed. The techniques and scope of the surgery vary depending on the desires of the patient and the extent of correction required.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Kulick takes pride in bringing the physical changes to his patients’ lives that they desire with the least amount of recovery time possible. He achieves this in his eyelid surgery by implementing laser applications into his techniques.
