Eyelids

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Upper lid blepharoplasty is the most common eyelid procedure performed by Dr. Bundrick for both functional and cosmetic reasons. Excess eyelid skin and prolapsed orbital tissue can start to droop over the eyelashes and become a problem both cosmetically and it can constrict your visual field.

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery removes the bagginess of the upper eyelids and restores the youthful eyelid crease, which immediately conveys a youthful and rested appearance and can enhance peripheral vision in those with severe enough lid droop.
There is minimal discomfort from surgery and most people return to their daily activities within the first 5-10 days following surgery.

Upper eyelid ptosis surgery

Before and After Upper eyelid ptosis surgery

The most common reason for developing ptosis is improper functioning of the levator muscle, a major muscle responsible for elevating the upper lid.  Some are born with a droopy eyelid but more frequently it is a result of aging, trauma or muscular or neurologic disease.  Dr. Bundrick can surgically correct ptosis by reattaching stretched muscles to their proper anatomic location, restoring the natural position and contour of the upper eyelid.  Surgery is performed either through a hidden eyelid crease incision or from the back side of the eyelid, which leaves no visible external scar.  There is minimal discomfort from surgery and most people return to their daily activities within the first 5-10 days following surgery.

Lower Eyelid Malpositions

Aging and other factors can contribute to malpositions of the lower eyelids that can be quite bothersome. These problems such as ectropion and entropion can cause severe irritation of the cornea from the eyelashes rubbing it or from excess exposure to the air and wind. These problems can be fixed with a variety of lid tightening procedures that are done under local anesthesia.
