Are you seeking Long Beach Eyelid Surgery physicians? Droopy eyelids may be a condition that is causing you a great deal of discomfort or may be obstructing your vision. Blepharoplasty (BLEF-uh-ro-plas-te), also known as as an eyelid lift, is surgery to repair droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, drooping upper lids and bags under your eyes. Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can impair your vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate such impaired vision.
An oculoplastic surgeon has training in both Ophthalmology and Plastic Reconstructive Surgery. The specialty of Oculoplastics is an art that combines the meticulous detailed microsurgical techniques of ophthalmology with the aesthetic understanding of plastic surgery.
