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.
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.
