Boston Plastic Surgery
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a type of plastic surgery that can improve the appearance of the eyelids. The procedure can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids and will improve such things as bags under the eyes, droopy eyelids, dark circles, excess skin and fine wrinkles under the eyes. Blepharoplasty requires a highly specialized technique because eye surgery takes place so close to one of the most-delicate organs of the body and so room for error and complications is higher. Dr. Y is a highly respected and well-known surgeon in his field for his expert technique in blepharoplasty procedures and ability to conduct the more complicated operations with exceptional results.
At Boston Plastic Surgery, Dr. Y regularly performs a variety of innovative and modern eyelift techniques, producing an outstanding outcome every time. Some techniques Dr. Y uses include the transconjunctival approach with arcus marginalis, known for release and fat redistribution as opposed to excision—a procedure that is quite successful in terms of long-term viability. Another technique Dr. Y performs is the selective use of lateral canthopexy, which prevents a common issue with lower-lid malposition. The other two most-used and more complicated techniques Dr. Y regularly employs are skeletal augmentation and midface elevation, both known to produce much better results with the more-difficult blepharoplasty challenges.
