Recovering from Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty, an eyelid surgery, is generally performed on patients who are well into their 30s or even in their 40s. However, in a technical sense, this surgery can be performed at any age. There are no specific age restrictions for undergoing blepharoplasty. In rare cases, five or six year old kids may also need to undergo the surgery because they have a problem opening the upper eyelid area.

Blepharoplasty Treatments from Dr. Edmund Kwan

Men and women affected by the effects of time and age may find that their eyes are no longer as bright and vibrant as they once were. This is often due to the loosening of skin and muscle around the eye, which then allows small fatty deposits beneath the skin to become highly visible. Some people experience such drooping that their vision becomes impaired. Droopy eyelids, as well as under-eye bags, can be treated successfully with blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery may be performed on the upper lids, the lower lids, or both in the same procedure. Dr. Kwan … Continue reading

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, an Eyelid Surgery, from Dr. Edmund Kwan

Blepharoplasty is a surgery involving the eyelid area. The area around the eyes is among the earliest portions of the face to show signs of aging. Crow’s feet or bags under the eyes and saggy upper eyelids are the typical conditions that make the face appear older. Skin on the eyelids is one of the most dynamic areas of the body. Constant blinking causes the eyelid skin to become stretched out. This ultimately results in loose skin and wrinkles in that area. Eyes are also usually exposed to environmental damage and sunlight. Gravitational pull may also cause the lower eyelids … Continue reading

Are there any risks involved in blepharoplasty?

A patient who chooses the blepharoplasty procedure should have a clear idea that the eyes are the most delicate and perhaps the most precious external organ of the human body. Any surgery that is carried out around the eyes is inherently a highly sensitive surgery. Therefore, it must be performed only by a very experienced and qualified surgeon who understands the procedure thoroughly. There are two potential risks that are associated with blepharoplasty. However, the fortunate part is that both these risks are fairly rare. The first risk is more closely associated with lower eyelid blepharoplasty. In this case, if … Continue reading

Who is a good candidate for eyelid lift?

Eyelid Surgery NYC from Dr. Edmund Kwan

Patients, young or old, who show signs of aging around the eyelids, are good candidates for an eyelid lift. Some patients might be younger and have more sun-damaged skin, while some other patients who are heavy smokers may have eyelid skin that is quite loose and drapes over the eye. If there is considerable laxity in the skin, and the eyelid’s excess skin is descending over the eyes, the patients can notice it easily by simply looking in the mirror. Patients’ age may range anywhere from the 20s to the 70s. On the lower eyelids, a patient may exhibit puffiness, … Continue reading

Will my eyes look different following eyelid surgery?

Eyelid Surgery from Dr. Edmund Kwan

Dr. Kwan prefers to preserve the original shape of the eye. An eyelid lift brings out the look of the eye which the patients had when they were younger, which is without the excess skin and the eyelid skin sagging. Therefore, the goal of the eyelid lift surgery is to restore youth, but not change the shape of the eye. If the eyelid lift is done properly, the shape of the eye will remain the same. In some patients, aging may cause the eyelid to droop, especially on the lower side. These patients may need to have the eyelid tightened … Continue reading
