Some people are born with excess skin around their eyes, while others experience it as they age.
If you have hooded upper eyelids or sagging bags beneath your lower eyelids, Dr. Arnold S. Lee can help.
Let him resolve your cosmetic issue with a blepharoplasty at AELeeMD Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Boston, MA.
What Is a Blepharoplasty?
A blepharoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery addressing your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.
Understanding the Two Kinds of Eyelid Surgery
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Hooded eyes, fat deposits, and winkles can all be addressed using upper eyelid surgery. The procedure varies depending on your needs, but it typically begins with an incision along the crease of your eye.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
If you have bags or wrinkles beneath your eyes, you may benefit from lower eyelid surgery. During the procedure, Dr. Lee will carefully refine the area via a lashline or under-eyelid incision.
Did you know that a blepharoplasty has lasting effects beyond cosmetic changes?
Improve Your Eyesight With Eyelid Surgery
For people with extreme sagging, eyelid surgery can actually improve their quality of life. Because sagging eyelid skin can block your vision, a blepharoplasty may improve your eyesight. Additionally, excess skin may cause dry eyes, which can feel painful or irritated. However, eyelid surgery can be an effective treatment, provided that your dry eyes are caused by sagging eyelids.

"Nothing short of outstanding" Boston Patients Talk About Dr. Lee
Dr Lee is very caring and compassionate.
From her initial consultation to her surgery and even the follow up appointments Dr Lee and his staff have been outstanding. From the receptionists at his office to the OR/recovery nurses, it was a team effort.
They made my wife feel extremely comfortable and everything went smooth. I believe other medical practices should take a look at Dr. Lee practice and follow it from top to bottom. A well deserved Thank You to Dr. Lee and his staff.
My experience with Dr. Lee has been nothing short of outstanding. He is so caring, considerate and thoughtful...He was extremely honest, helpful, accessible and accommodating throughout the whole process and wanted to make sure it was 100% safe before he did any work on me. He really takes the time to listen to your concerns, and never once did I feel rushed. He even gives patients his cell number for any questions/concerns that may come up. I continue to have the utmost confidence that I am in excellent hands and I look forward to continuing to heal and enjoy my results. I couldn't be happier with the care and results I've received.View On Yelp

The Blepharoplasty Procedure From Start to Finish
Maximize Your Results With an Additional Brow Lift
If you have eyelid wrinkles, you may also have forehead wrinkles. Fortunately, there is a way that you can refine them both at the same time. Pairing your blepharoplasty with a brow lift can provide amazing results, giving you smoother, more youthful skin.
Dr. Lee provides both brow lifts and eyelid surgery at his state-of-the-art facility in Boston. He can discuss whether or not you are a good candidate for these two effective cosmetic procedures during your initial consultation.
Will I Have a Scar After My Blepharoplasty?
You may have a minimal, hidden scar — or you might not have one at all. As blepharoplasty techniques evolve and improve, it has become easier to conceal the incision site. Lower eyelid scars are often easier to hide, especially if your plastic surgeon makes an incision within the lash line. As for upper eyelids, they may have slight scarring, but because the incision is made in the crease, the mark is harder to see.
