Home | Blepharoplasty


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.

One of the most common conditions that might prompt a patient to seek an eyelid operation is the tear trough deformity, mostly associated with dark circles around the eyes. Dr. Y has produced great success with this procedure time and again. Patients who visit Boston Plastic Surgery usually will undergo Dr. Y’s transconjunctival arcus marginalis release with fat transposition procedure, unless it is a severe condition that would then require transconjunctival arcus marginalis release with fat transposition and a tear trough implant. Again, Dr. Y is profoundly seasoned and highly successful in all these procedures, providing patients with the best results possible.

Dr. Y also provides instruction on all of these blepharoplasty techniques and procedures and lectures on them often as well both in his private practice and at other learning institutions around the world. He is one of the best blepharoplasty surgeons available, and you can count on significant results that last.
