Aesthetic Services / Eyelids
Blepharoplasty, better known as cosmetic eyelid surgery, is one of the most common performed facial plastic procedures. The aging process of the face can make the upper eyelids droop. This creates a tired or aged look. The removal of small amounts of skin and fat from the upper lids can restore a more youthful appearance and refreshed look. The procedure can be performed as an outpatient in our surgery center.
What is Blepharospasm?
Blepharospasm is an abnormal, involuntary blinking or spasm of the eyelids.
What Causes Blepharospasm?
The basal ganglion is the part of the brain responsible for controlling the muscles. Blepharospasm is associated with the abnormal functioning of the basal ganglion due to unknown reasons. In rare cases, heredity is known to play a role in the development of blepharospasm.
How is Blepharospasm Diagnosed?
Blepharospasm can be diagnosed when symptoms are displayed during a comprehensive eye exam.
What are the Treatment Options?
BOTOX® injections to treat blepharospasm have proven effective in partially blocking the nerve impulses to the tiny muscles in the eyelid.
