Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a highly popular procedure offered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Kulick to perform. The procedure is designed to remove fat and excess skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids. The end result of the surgery is to lift the skin and reduce wrinkles and excess fat in the eyelids.

Ideal candidates for a blepharoplasty are generally in good health and have no pre-existing medical conditions that could add risk to the procedure.

Candidates who smoke should stop for several weeks before considering the procedure. Smoking decreases the blood flow to body tissue, which can significantly alter a person’s ability to bounce back from surgery. Patients who do smoke are at a greater risk for complications including infection and the need for a longer healing period.
