Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty is a procedure in which extra skin (also known as dermatochalasis) and/or fat is removed or repositioned to help give a more youthful and rested appearance.
Depending on the patient, a blepharoplasty procedure may involve the upper, lower or both lids. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can be medically necessary (and covered by the insurance) if it blocks your peripheral vision, otherwise it is commonly done for cosmetic purposes. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is typically not covered by insurance, but is a good way to reshape the eyelid and appearance.
Dr. Neel Kumar completed years of training to specialize in treating eyelid conditions. He uses surgery to remove extra skin that causes eyelids to droop. Based on the patient’s individual condition and needs, Dr. Kumar will develop a customized care plan to achieve optimal results.
