Aging Eyes

As we age, the soft tissues around our eyes (skin, muscle, and fat) begins to sag causing visual problems and making us look old and tired. Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift can reverse these signs of aging eyes improving your vision and turning back the clock 10 years or more. Check out the photo gallery below to see the transformation of Dr. Strecker’s blepharoplasty patients before and after surgery.

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift is a delicate surgical procedure involving the soft tissues around your eyes.  Dr. Strecker is a reconstructive and cosmetic eyelid specialist who has been performing blepharoplasty or eyelid lift for more than twenty years.

Dr. Strecker uses the very latest technology including incisional and fractional CO2 to perform blepharoplasty or eyelid lift. Surgery can be performed with local, topical, and oral sedation in his Plymouth office or IV “twilight anesthesia” at his Medicare approved level 3 ambulatory surgery center in Sandwich.

Dr. Strecker performs blepharoplasty for visual conditions (covered by insurance) along with purely cosmetic blepharoplasty (not covered by insurance).  Dr. Strecker performs blepharoplasty or eyelid lift on a wide range of patients both male and female ages 30’s to 80’s.  Most importantly Dr. Strecker understands the subtleties of surgery so his patients maintain their natural look.  This is particularly  critical for male patients who do not want to be feminized but want to keep their masculine appearance AND look 10 years younger.
