The Eye Center Offers Upper Blepharoplasty

Columbia, SC – At The Eye Center, an ophthalmology practice committed to providing their patients with top-notch care and outcomes, men and women of any age can now benefit from upper blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure that removes extra skin and fat from the upper eyelids. The team of specialists at The Eye Center are dedicated to providing superior care and results.

Dr. Clary of The Eye Center emphasizes the significance of providing comprehensive eye care services, which now includes blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure that can help improve vision impairments and give patients a more youthful and alert appearance. “We understand how important it is for our patients to look their best, but more importantly to get the help they need for vision impairments. We are proud to be able to offer this treatment,” said Dr. Clary.

Blepharoplasty can also have health benefits beyond just improving your appearance: severely sagging skin around your eyes can impair your peripheral or side vision making it much more challenging to perform your daily activities such as driving or reading small print on labels or signs. One of the main risks is inability to see your blind spot when driving due to sagging eyelid skin that covers part of the eye’s field of vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate such impaired vision while also making you look younger and more vibrant at the same time!

The blepharoplasty procedure itself typically takes about one hour per eyelid depending on the amount of tissue being removed and requires only local anesthesia with minimal discomfort during recovery time afterwards. The results are usually visible within two weeks after surgery with full results visible within six weeks after surgery as swelling subsides completely.

At The Eye Center, we strive for excellence in all aspects of eye care including procedures such as blepharoplasty. Our team provides our patients with safe and effective treatments that will help them look their best while also improving their overall well-being!  For more information about blepharoplasty at The Eye Center, please visit or call us at 803-256-0641 for an appointment today!
