CORONA, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2014) - According to the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. "I think this is because the eye region is oftentimes the focal point of our face, and due to thinness of the skin, it is quick to show signs of aging," says Corona plastic surgeon Christopher Chung, MD. "This, coupled with the fact that eyelid procedures are fairly expedient with minimal risks, makes them popular."

At his practice, Dr. Chung performs blepharoplasty using innovative techniques he helped develop to remove excess fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelids. In a recent blog post titled, "Maintaining a Youthful Appearance With Eyelid Surgery," the Corona plastic surgeon notes, "Though most patients elect to have an eyelid lift performed for aesthetic improvement, there can also be functional benefits for certain individuals," such as the removal of excess skin attributing to vision impairment. Additional benefits listed in the blog entry include: a more youthful contour, a reduction in puffiness and signs of fatigue, and a refreshed appearance.

To provide additional information to patients researching eyelid surgery, Dr. Chung details typical candidacy requirements in a follow-up blog post titled, "Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?" Considerations include:

  • Deposits of fat in the upper and/or lower eyelids
  • Puffy, sagging, or wrinkled skin around the eyes
  • Vision impairment caused by significant skin inelasticity

In addition to anatomical elements, Dr. Chung says he also examines his patients' expectations for results. During the consultation, he notes that he will develop a customized treatment plan that will address the needs and goals of each patient and explain the risks and benefits of the available approaches. "I have several procedural elements that are unique and innovative that often allow for quick recovery and minimal downtime." In some cases, he says he may recommend additional procedures, such as brow lift, to best achieve patient goals.

Ultimately, Dr. Chung states that blepharoplasty performed at his practice can help reduce signs of early aging around the eyes. He says the advanced techniques he utilizes typically involve minimal risks and can offer patients results they will love.
