The periorbital region often demonstrates the earliest signs of aging and is often the first that people notice. The skin in this area is very thin, offering little resistance to the formation of wrinkles and puffiness. Drooping eyelids can interfere with vision and in pronounced cases interfere with simple tasks such as driving. Thankfully, Dr. Correa performs high-quality blepharoplasty, which can help reverse these unfortunate signs of aging.

TYPES OF EYELID PROCEDURES
Upper eyelid surgery addresses the excess skin and fat that can lead to the appearance of early aging. Correcting this problem involves tightening the skin and muscles in and around the eyelid. It may also require the removal of excess fat in the area which can be done at the same time. In some patients, as the muscles in the upper face relax, the skin over the eye can droop to such a degree that functionality is impaired and vision is obstructed. Normal daily activities such as driving, reading, and household activities can become difficult to do. In these cases the functional benefits can be significant.
Dr. Correa’s patients have remarked at how refreshed they look and feel from this one procedure. Removing excess skin and fat and altering the muscles that are responsible for expression is a skill requiring technical precision as well as a sense of artistry.

ASIAN EYELID SURGERY
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Most people are good candidates for eyelid surgery, however, some people with chronic eye diseases such as dry eyes or thyroid eye disease may not be good candidates for this surgery. Dr. Correa can determine if the procedure should be delayed pending resolution of any underlying medical condition. He wants to ensure you get the best results possible.
Prior to your procedure, you will be asked questions concerning your overall health and what medications you are taking. If you take blood thinners you will be asked to refrain from taking them for a period before and after your surgery. Smokers are of course always encouraged to quit, but for the sake of surgical healing are asked to refrain from smoking for at least a short period of time so that the healing process is not impeded.
THE SURGERY: WHAT TO EXPECT
Dr. Correa’s Philosophy on
“The eyelids represent a unique and dynamic component of facial beauty. This beauty is delicate and demands an exacting surgeon with a great understanding of the anatomy and meticulous surgical technique to create the desired effect while still preserving the important functional aspect of the eyelids.”
