Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) in Chevy Chase, MD and Washington, DC
Puffy eyes or baggage around the eyelid are all-too common problems that make you look tired or older. If you have excess skin around your eyelids, or pockets of fat that are contributing to puffiness, the most effective way to correct these issues is through cosmetic eyelid surgery. Dr. Kung has been helping patients see exceptional results with eyelid surgery in Chevy Chase, MD.
What’s Involved in Eyelid Surgery?
Getting eyelid surgery (or blepharoplasty) involves re-shaping eyelids into the desired appearance by removing excess skin and fat. Treatment can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or a combination of both. For some patients, loose skin around the eyelids can even diminish your vision. Eyelid surgery helps treat:
•Skin that has drooped over eyelashes
•Lack of a double eyelid fold
•Upper eye puffiness
•Drooping lower eye skin
Dr. Kung begins the treatment with a very fine incision made along the natural lines and creases of your eyelids, for minimal scarring. From here, he can provide you with the eyelid shape you desire, based on your initial consultation.
The entire procedure takes approximately two to three hours, depending if this treatment is performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. We provide our patients with only the highest quality care before, during, and after their eyelid surgery, for best results.
Eyelid Surgery for Patients of Asian Descent
Dr. Kung is also able to customize eyelid surgery for patients of Asian descent, many of whom lack a double eyelid fold. Our Chevy Chase office offers eyelid surgery to add what is called a supratarsal fold. The results are natural-looking eyelids that give the entire face a more youthful and energetic look, and can make simple beauty routines, like applying eye makeup, easier.
Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Alternatives
For some patients with baggage or puffiness that is not caused by excess skin, we offer a laser-assisted form of eyelid surgery called transconjunctival blepharoplasty. With this laser cosmetic surgery, treatment begins on the inside of the eyelid, which produces no external, visible scarring.
