Blepharoplasty / Excess Upper Eyelid Skin


Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to repair a condition called dermatochalasis, or droopy eyelids.  Droopy eyelids due to dermatochalasis is when the excess skin on the upper eyelid loses elasticity and droops down over the eye, limiting vision and giving the eyes a heavy and tired appearance.  Lower eyelid dermatochalasis may result from excess skin, fatty pockets, or a combination of both.  Removal of the excess skin in upper eyelids will improve an individual's field of vision as well as their appearance.  Lower eyelid dermatochalasis will improve the look and feel below the eyes.

When people refer to the term "eyelid surgery," they are often referring to Blepharoplasty, although there are several procedures that fall under the category of eyelid suergery.   Upper eyelid blepharoplasty may be covered by insurance depending on the amount of vision which is impaired or blocked by the droopy eyelids.  A visual field test, taking approximately 20 minutes, is done in the office to help determine if the procedure is deemed "medically necessary" and therefore covered by insurance.  The surgery is performed at an out-patient facility close to the Victor Eyecare office. 

Dr. Victor is involved with each patient every step of the process - from the initial examination and pre-surgical history and physical, to the  actual surgery and suture removal.   This ensures continuity of the best possible patient care.

Trust your eyes to a fellowship trained, board certified eyelid plastic surgeon, who has performed thousands of blepharoplasty surgical procedures.
