Most of the aging changes occur around the eyes. An ophthalmic plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon of the eyes can best address the cosmetic issues in the face as they are familiar with the eyelids, microincisions, working under microscopes and precise suturing techniques. Dr. A.M. Kulkarni has the experience of performing innumerable surgeries to improve the appearance of the face.
Blepharoplasty is the removal of under eye bags and eyelid hooding, which give a tired look to the face. It involves the removal of excess sagging skin, protruding fat and rarely muscle from the upper or lower lids. In older individuals it may be needed to improve the visual fields. The incision for the upper lid is through the skin and lower lid through the conjunctiva so that there are no visible scars.
The brows are refixated to a higher position giving a younger look and smoothening the lines between the eyes. It can be performed endoscopically or via small incisions given above the eyebrow or near the hairline.
