Eyelid surgery is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the United States. This does not include the vast number of individuals that have eyelid surgery for functional, traumatic, and reconstructive purposes. However, just because the procedure is common does it mean eyelid surgery is safe?…and does it mean it is the right decision for you? To help make this decision it is important to consult with a surgeon that has the knowledge, experience, and patience to develop a plan that is most appropriate for YOUR concerns.

Baggy or puffy eyelids are a common complaint that gives an aged or tired appearance to the face. In men, the excess skin may rest on the eyelashes causing irritation or tearing. In women, the excess skin makes it difficult to apply eyeliner, mascara, and eye shadow. At times, the eyelid skin is so prominent that it may block vision. Blepharoplasty is a procedure used to address this excess skin. It is a quick (less than 1 hour) procedure with minimal to no pain. A comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Sajja will help you determine if you are a candidate for the procedure. In some cases, this procedure is covered by your medical insurance.
At Milan Eye Center, your safety and satisfaction is our utmost concern. Each patient-client is part of our treatment team. Dr. Sajja welcomes the opportunity to discuss your specific concerns and work with you to design an appropriate and individualized treatment plan.
