Blepharoplasty with Oculoplastic Specialist, Dr. Richard Bryant

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a medical and cosmetic surgical procedure performed here at Eye Center South by Oculoplastic Specialist, Dr. Richard Bryant that is designed to eliminate excess tissues from the eyelids in order to enhance the look of the eyes. As time passes, eyelids have a tendency to stretch as the supporting muscles become weak. Because of this, unwanted fat deposits may collect either above or below the eyelids resulting in sagging eyebrows, drooping eyelids, and the appearance of bags under one’s eyes. While the listed conditions are not only cosmetically undesirable; they can also affect one’s peripheral vision. Blepharoplasty is a great way to improve such issues.  Most people are not aware that Blepharoplasty is also a medical procedure that is covered by most insurance companies if deemed necessary.  A full evaluation with Dr. Richard Bryant is needed to determine whether it is medical or cosmetic.  To find out more about the risks and benefits of this surgery or to schedule an evaluation in our Dothan, AL or Destin, FL office, please contact us at 334-793-2211 or 800-467-1393.
