Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a plastic surgeon who practices in Bethesda, Maryland. With more than 25 years of experience, Dr. Oldham is well versed not only in perfected surgical skill but also in compassionate patient care. Ideal candidates for cosmetic surgery procedures for facial rejuvenation include men and women of all ages who identity aging features in their face—features that are dissatisfying. While a procedure like facelift is more comprehensive, other procedures like blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) targets specific features like the eyelids.
With blepharoplasty, patients receive relief from the appearance of aging features, rejuvenating the windows to the soul so that you appear more sprite and youthful than before. Surprisingly, there is another common motivation for seeking blepharoplasty: obstructed vision. Blepharoplasty can be cosmetic and medically necessary as well. In some patients, the eyelid has drooped to such degree that the loose skin actually rests over the eyelash line and can inhibit the full range of vision. In these cases, it is usually an eye doctor who advises patients to consider the procedure, because, unfortunately, the symptom will not improve on its own. These patients’ eyes are dramatically improved, both for evidence of aging and obstruction of vision: before and after blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery) with Dr. Roger J. Oldham.
