Eyelid Lift Surgery

in Buffalo & North Tonawanda

If you’re considering getting blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid lift surgery, the doctors of Siedlecki Cataract & Vision Care are here to help in Buffalo and North Tonawanda, NY.

Blepharoplasty can eliminate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It may be performed for cosmetic reasons or more commonly to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient's field of vision, in which case the procedure is covered by most insurances. The procedure is performed under sedation in our New York State licensed and AAAHC accredited on-site, in-office ambulatory surgery center by Dr. Siedlecki.


Prior to the eye surgery, our doctors will perform physical and vision examinations in addition to taking photos of your eyes at different angles. This is so we can properly assess your general health, identify any risk factors, and discuss the likely outcomes the eye surgery will provide. Once your medical history and current conditions have been discussed, you’ll be asked to take certain preventative measures before the surgery to achieve the most successful outcome possible.

A few of these measures include:

  • Quit smoking in the weeks leading up to the surgery
  • Eliminate certain medications including aspirin, ibuprofen, and any other anti-inflammatory supplements
  • Coordinate with a friend or loved one to drive you to and from the surgery

Abiding by these requests will aid in your body’s ability to recover efficiently. They will also help to reduce complications during the procedure. To learn more about blepharoplasty eye surgery, contact us today!
