Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty is surgery to rejuvenate the eyelids.   The procedure can be performed on both upper and lower lids, and often involves removal of excess skin.   There ay be additional surgery to remove and /or reposition the muscle or fatty tissue in that area.

Dr. Charles Loguda, Dr. Howard Tepper, Dr. Richard Tepper and Dr. Jerrold Zeitels at Associates in Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery, offer their unique approaches to achieve a natural, rejuvenated appearance.  They can utilize the most current approaches such as fat grafting and repositioning to help avoid that “hollowed out” appearance more typical of older procedures.
