Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is the most common office procedure performed by Dr. Iyengar. This is the procedure that involves the removal of excess skin from upper eyelid. Dr. Iyengar has built a national reputation for natural results from this procedure . Additionally, he is often asked to fix complications when plastic surgeons run into challenges with this procedure.
Couple things that Dr. Iyengar, as an eyelid specialist, does in his customized upper eyelid surgery:
- Careful measurements performed by Dr. Iyengar EVERYDAY, are used to place the incision is placed in the eyelid crease so as to provide the best aesthetic outcome and make it the least visible.
- The underlying muscle below the eyelid skin is preserved, so eyelid closure is maintained. This is a safety difference from having eyelid surgery with someone who is not a fellowship-trained eyelid specialist.
Cosmetic upper eyelid blepharoplasty can be performed in the office setting under local anesthesia or in the operating room when combined with other procedures.
