Why an Ophthalmologist Should Do Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Why an Ophthalmologist Should Do Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

You’ve heard the old adage: The Eyes are the Window to Your Soul. Yet, if your eyelids hang down over them and you constantly joke about the bags under your eyes being large enough to carry groceries in, then it’s time to make a change. The surgery you need is called Blepharoplasty, or more commonly eyelid surgery. However, this type of surgery pertains to more than just the eyelids; it can include all the delicate tissues surrounding the eyes that droop, sag or sink as you age.

When it’s time to give your eyes a more youthful appearance by tightening the skin around those “windows to your soul,” you may think a general plastic surgeon is the best person to call. However, an ophthalmologist with a specialty in Oculoplasty has the highest level of expertise and advanced training to work with these delicate tissues that are so important to your vision.

Blepharoplasty – Knowing Who to Call

Taking any risks with your eyes is never advised, so seeing an ophthalmologist who has the additional training as an oculoplastic surgeon is your best move. These specialists are trained to perform reconstructive surgery on the following conditions:

  • Aging eyelids or ptosis
  • Tear drainage problems
  • Eyelid malposition
  • Skin cancers of the eyelid
  • Eye socket problems – also called the orbit area
  • Anophthalmia – loss of an eye

Oculopastic surgeons at Katzen Eye Group in Baltimore and Lutherville, Maryland are better trained and qualified to perform your blepharoplasty procedure. If you are ready to revitalize your appearance and want the best care for your eyes, then please schedule an appointment today with Katzen Eye Group.
