Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Are you searching for a way to improve dark circles and bags under your eyes? Do you look tired or angry? You should be looking for a plastic surgeon that approaches eyelid surgery with a modern perspective. This is achieved through the intricate balance of artistic vision, thoughtful analysis and surgical precision. Many years of experience have refined Dr. Kim’s unique technique and artistic approach to blepharoplasty.

Why you should choose Dr. Kim for your eyelid surgery

  • Dr. Kim focuses on achieving an artistic balance for your face.
  • Comprehensive pre-operative analysis improves desired results.
  • Dr. Kim provides a blend of skin removal, fat removal, skin resurfacing and fat repositioning that creates a natural appearance.
  • Laser scar management improves long term healing.
  • Meticulous post-operative care personally provided by Dr. Kim.
  • Direct access to Dr. Kim via cell phone following your procedure.

Many other plastic surgeons focus on removing excess skin and fat on the upper and lower eyelids. Less artistic approaches to eye surgery use out-of-date techniques that can result in a hollow, unnatural appearance of the eyelids. Dr. Kim of Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center LLC feels that removing excess skin and fat on the eyelids is only part of the solution. Dr. Kim also tightens the muscle of the lower lid to bring youth back to the eyes. For certain patients, he will even use fat injections to restore a smooth contour to the under eye area. Also, the latest laser resurfacing techniques improve skin color and wrinkles.

Every patient is unique. Dr. Kim uses his many years of experience to create the most ideal appearance based on your individual needs and concerns. When you meet with Dr. Kim in consultation, he will evaluate you to determine which course of action is most appropriate. Meticulous and gentle technique ensures optimal results with minimal recovery.

Finally, Dr. Kim performs your post-operative evaluation and care to ensure proper healing and results. Unlike many of his colleagues, Dr. Kim provides direct access to him via cell phone for any concerns you may have following your procedure.

 

Eyelid
As people age, the eyelid skin stretches, muscles weaken, and fat accumulates around the eyes, causing "bags" above and below.

Before surgery, the surgeon marks the incision sites, following the natural lines and creases of the upper and lower eyelids.

Underlying fat, along with excess skin and muscle, can be removed during the operation.

The surgeon closes the incisions with fine sutures, which will leave nearly invisible scars.

In a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, a tiny incision is made inside the lower eyelid and fat is removed with fine forceps. No skin is removed, and the incision is closed with dissolving sutures.
