Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery

The voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses.
— E.E. Cummings
 

What is cosmetic eyelid surgery?

The eyes are a focal point of a person’s face.  It is possible to communicate a multitude of expressions with just a subtle change of eye expression.  And as we age, the appearance around our eyes can take on a perpetually tired expression – even when that is not the case.  

With Dr. Chang as your surgeon, you can look forward to regaining your expressive eyes anew.  We provide a number of eyelid enhancing surgeries that make an impact to improve your entire facial aesthetics. 

Procedures

  • Upper/Lower Blepharoplasty 

    This procedure involves a surgical eyelid lift where excess skin (from aging process) is removed and bulging contours (eyelid bags) are smoothened.  These procedures are usually performed in the later decades of life to address eyelid changes that occur from aging.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, blepharoplasty surgery is the most common cosmetic procedure performed year after year.  

  • Ptosis Correction

    This procedure involves a surgical repair of drooping upper eyelid, where the upper eyelid cannot open completely despite your maximal attempts.  You should receive a thorough examination to diagnose the cause of eyelid ptosis before undergoing surgery.  Symptoms of eyelid ptosis include, drooping upper eyelids, impaired peripheral visions, and chronic stress-related headaches due to straining the eyes and eyebrows in attempts to see better.  

  • Male Blepharoplasty

    In the male patient, blepharoplasty surgery should be performed with conservative consideration for male aesthetics in mind. 

The Consult

All consultations with Dr. Chang are unhurried and relaxed.  First and foremost, a thorough medical examination and history is performed to ensure all safety precautions are properly addressed.  Adequate time is taken to listen to all of your questions and to focus in on what your precise concerns may be.  If you are a suitable candidate, a customized treatment plan will be designed for you.
