Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia, Pollard Plastic Surgery offers blepharoplasty to patients who desire plastic surgery.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Pollard Plastic Surgery offers eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, for men and women. Eyelid surgery uses the latest technology to reduce the excess muscle, fat and skin around the eye. The procedure can be performed to correct drooping upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids. In some cases, Dr. Emily Pollard may recommend corrections to both the upper and lower eyelids.

Blepharoplasty Procedure

The first step in your eyelid surgery procedure, or blepharoplasty, is to meet with Dr. Pollard so that she can examine your eyelids and propose the best possible solution. She may discuss several factors with you, such as puffiness, loose skin, and fatty deposits. During your consultation, share with Dr. Pollard any other eye problems that you are experiencing, such as irritation that may be caused by skin rubbing against your eyelashes.

After examining your eyes, Dr. Pollard may recommend upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or both. Upper eyelid surgery is recommended for patients who have excess skin and fat above their eyes. Pouches beneath your eyes, puffiness, and a lumpy appearance are some of the cosmetic concerns that are addressed by lower eyelid surgery.

Blepharoplasty Benefits

Eyelid surgery not only makes you look better, but the procedure can also help you feel less tired while reading and watching television. The weight of your upper eyelids can fatigue your eye muscles, and you may not have even noticed how much energy you exert to keep your eyes open.

Eyelid surgery is not intended to reduce certain signs of aging, such as crow’s feet and other wrinkles around your eyes. The procedure will not address dark circles or restore your brow area. Dr. Pollard may recommend eyelid surgery in conjunction with a brow lift, facelift, and skin rejuvenation.
