If your face looks very tired or appears aged, you may benefit from a blepharoplasty procedure. This procedure, also known as eyelid surgery, can help to open up the eye area by getting rid of excess tissues throughout the area, removing puffiness under the lids and smoothing out lines around the eyes. Many of our patients who have undergone this surgery have been amazed at how much better they look after they heal from the procedure.

When most people think about blepharoplasty, they think about a procedure that is performed in order to make a person look younger. And at Chase Lay MD, we certainly offer this procedure. However, we’re proud to also offer Asian eyelid surgery, which is a more advanced procedure that Dr. Lay specializes in.

While blepharoplasty can typically be used to treat the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both eyelids simultaneously, Asian eyelid surgery tends to focus on the upper eyelids. During this procedure, new creases are created in the upper eyelids using state-of-the-art techniques that aim to enhance the appearance of the lid while also maintaining the patient’s cultural identity.

While most of our patients have this procedure done for cosmetic reasons, some do come to us for other reasons. For example, eyelid surgery can oftentimes help to improve eyesight and, in particular, peripheral vision. However, results vary from patient to patient, and each procedure is customized based on a variety of factors.

At Chase Lay MD, we are proud to offer traditional blepharoplasty procedures, as well as Asian eyelid surgery. Dr. Lay is board-certified by both the American Board of Otolaryngology and the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, making him the go-to surgeon in the area for facial procedures.
