Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure that removes excess tissue from the upper and/or lower eyelids, in turn smoothing and refining the remaining skin around the eyes. The best candidates for eyelid surgery at Dr. Hetzler’s New Jersey practice are patients who feel that their eyes are excessively puffy or tired-looking.
For patients who experience bags under the eyes but have no significant wrinkling, our New Jersey practice can perform blepharoplasty using the “transconjunctival” approach (where an incision is made on the inside of the eyelid). This approach allows us to remove the excess fat that causes the baggy appearance, with no external incisions.
Blepharoplasty gives our patients a rested, youthful appearance. If you are interested in eyelid surgery in New Jersey, contact the practice of Dr. Peter T. Hetzler for a consultation.
