Aging around the eyes is unmistakable as it negatively impacts the smile and the youthfulness of the other features. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) with Dr. Leong in Morgantown WV can help mitigate drooping, unattractive upper lids while removing excess skin and fat from the lower lids. The result is a complete revitalization of the upper face, restoring your self-confidence and self-image.

What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery is performed on both the upper and lower lids. For upper blepharoplasty, the incisions are hidden in the natural eyelid creases, while for lower blepharoplasty, the incisions are hidden within the lower lashline. Through these tiny incisions, Dr. Leong is able to remove excess fat and skin, enlivening your facial expression and rolling back the clock on the aging process. Often Dr. Leong will combine eyelid surgery with a brow lift to ensure the entire upper face is rejuvenated.

What are some key benefits of eyelid surgery?

  • Improved smile
  • Enhanced self-confidence
  • Corrected vision
  • Smoothing away of wrinkles and creases
  • Removal of excess fat and skin

Who makes the best candidate for the procedure?

Morgantown WV candidates for surgery should be non-smokers who are healthy in body and mind, and who have realistic expectations for their outcome. Anyone who is unhappy with droopy eyelids and a fatigued appearance will benefit from blepharoplasty. The procedure is useful in combating the following:

  • Drooping eyelids that interfere with one’s vision
  • Excess fat and skin on the upper lids
  • Upper eyelid wrinkles that make you look tired
  • Undereye bags and puffiness
  • Wrinkles or fatty tissue in the lower lids

Dr. Leong will provide you with a detailed aftercare plan, along with prescription pain medications.
