Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)

The development of excess fat and drooping skin of the upper eyelids or “bags” or dark circles of the lower eyelids are a significant source of concern for many individuals.  They feel that their eyes may make them appear angry or fatigued to others, when they are, in actuality, well-rested and in good spirits .  For those patients, upper/lower eyelid tuck surgery (ie. Blepharoplasty) may provide the perfect solution.

Performed under intravenous sedation anesthesia in a State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’), combined upper and lower blepharoplasty lasts approximately 2 hours and patients are able to return home afterwards.  Most patients are able to return to work and comfortably engage in social situations in about one week.

In more advanced cases, excess upper eyelid tissue may represent a health risk by causing obstruction of vision.  If this is documented by a test known as a ‘visual field’ study, a corrective upper blepharoplasty may then be considered a ‘covered’ procedure by some health insurance plans.  However, criteria for coverage vary widely, usually requiring the submission of a formal written request letter (known as a ‘preauthorization letter’) and require fulfillment of certain photographic criteria to be valid.

When considering blepharoplasty surgery, be sure to select a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 15 years of clinical practice experience and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (The Mark of Distinction in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery® ASAPS), Dr. Robert Kimmel welcomes the opportunity to help you achieve your goals and enjoy a healthier, more confident lifestyle.

When your eyes appear bright and alert, people perceive you as being happier, more approachable, and well rested.

We are proud to serve patients from Scranton, Allentown, and Harrisburg.
