The eyes and eyelids are the center of a youthful and alert facial appearance, and eyelid surgery is the most critical and detailed type of facial plastic surgery. Blepharoplasty also known as an eyelid lift is the repositioning or removal of soft tissue from the upper or lower eyelids. Given his training in eye surgery and oculoplastic and orbital surgery, Dr. Lin Yang is a cosmetic eyelid specialist.
Blepharoplasties and related eyelid surgeries are among the top five most commonly performed surgical procedures across the United States, usually falling behind liposuction, breast augmentation/reduction, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), and brow lifts. Even so, according to the American Academy of Plastic Surgeons, the average, busy plastic surgeon performs 23 blepharoplasties each year, or roughly one every other week. Compare this experience to Dr. Lin’s, where he performs nearly 10 blepharoplasties each week, or some 500 / year, each procedure carefully customized to each individual’s needs.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery is performed through a cosmetic lid crease incision allowing the surgeon to reshape the contours of the upper eyelid. If you feel great, but your friends occasionally ask if you are tired or angry, you may be a perfect candidate for an upper eyelid lift.
Removal of redundant skin allows makeup to be used more effectively and brings out the natural beauty of the human eye. The upper eyelid blepharoplasty procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures like a lower lid lift, mid-face lift, filler injections, ptosis repair, or a forehead lift. Skin wrinkles of the lower lid or corner of the eye can be treated with Botox injections, skin care, or chemical peel.
