Eyelid Surgery

Why choose Blepharoplasty?

Since there is not much tissue support in the eyelids, this is often the first area to show signs of aging. The eyes are also the first feature others see when they look at you. Aging eyes can make you appear tired, sad, or just plain old.

Occasionally, the excess skin of the upper eyelid is often what contributes to the appearance of aging. For this reason, people often focus first on their eyes before they express concern about improving the appearance of their neck, or other areas.

During eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty, it is of utmost importance to determine the appropriate amount of skin, muscle, and fat to be removed in order to obtain optimal and natural looking results. Therefore, it is important to choose a surgeon with experience and expertise in eyelid surgery.

Doctor Shahar also has vast experience with Asian eyes and understands the importance of maintaining these characteristics.

What Is Eyelid Surgery / Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to remove eyelid skin and to remove fat from the eyelids.

There are 2 types of eyelif surgeries:

Upper blepharoplasty surgery: small incisions to the upper eyelid to remove skin. the eyelid is then stitched (with a very thin stitch) back together to create an eyelid crease. This procedure can be done under local anesthesia.

Lower blepharoplasty surgery: small incision underneath the eyelash either from the inside or the outside of the lower eyelid to remove fat.

Reviews from our Eyelid Surgery patients

"My experience with Dr. Shahar was a very positive one. I went to him for under-eye surgery. He understood what I wanted and he executed it perfectly to my taste. I was very nervous to have this procedure done so it was good that Dr. Shahar was very approachable. I met with him several times to discuss what I wanted done. I was also able to go through photos of his previous clients who had had similar procedures. This helped build my confidence in him, as I really liked his previous work. Dr. Shahar is careful and conservative in his approach and has a great eye for knowing how to enhance and make a person look their best while maintaining a natural look. I am very pleased with my results."
