- Dr. Inessa Fishman
This 51-year-old woman was bothered by the tired appearance of her eyes. Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with an upper blepharoplasty, or surgical eyelid lift. The patient is shown with great treatment results and more open, brithger eyes a few months after surgery.
About Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Some individuals may have excess fat (“eye bags”) and skin at their upper and lower eyelids due to genetics or the aging process. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a form of surgical facial rejuvenation that helps patients reduce the appearance of aging by removing and repositioning excess skin, muscle and fat from the eyelids. Eyelid surgery helps patients enjoy a more youthful, alert appearance with a relatively minor treatment. Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman commonly performs eyelid surgery as a standalone procedure, or in combination with rhinoplasty or facelift surgery.
