Improvements from Eyelid Surgery in New York
Eyelid surgery, technically known as "blepharoplasty," is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for both women and men who visit our New York practice, especially those in their 40s to 60s. Our patients choose eyelid surgery for many personal reasons, which often include:
- Lifting loose, sagging upper and lower eyelids
- Correcting under-eye bags
- Restoring peripheral vision obscured by loose eyelid skin
- Removing fatty deposits from upper and lower eyelids
In addition to cosmetic eyelid surgery, our surgeons often perform functional eyelid surgery to restore vision obstructed by sagging upper eyelids. Since this procedure can help you see better, your medical insurance provider might cover the costs. You will usually need to be screened by your optometrist to determine the extent to which your eyelids obstruct your vision if you are interested in insurance coverage. Our office staff will be happy to help you determine your provider's particular requirements.
Only the Beginning
You can combine eyelid surgery with other cosmetic surgery procedures including brow lift, facelift and neck lift for a more complete facial rejuvenation. Sometimes our patients find that a brow lift alone can achieve the refreshed look they desire.
Our on-site medical spa offers a wide range of facial treatments that can help you achieve the refreshed eye area you desire, such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. Dark pigmentation under the eyes can be corrected with a bleaching solution or chemical peel. Your surgeon will help you arrive at the right combination of procedures for you during your personalized consultation.
What to Expect
Your eyelid surgery is performed - either under heavy sedation or general anesthesia - in our on-site, outpatient facilities. The procedure, when performed alone, usually takes between 1 to 3 hours. This time will increase with additional procedures. Arrange to have someone to drive you home and help you out for the first day or two after your surgery.
Initially, you will need to apply cold compresses to your eye area to minimize bruising and swelling. You will also need to keep your head elevated, including when you are sleeping, for the first few days. Most patients are ready to return to light activity, including work, in about 10 days, but need to wait at least 3 weeks before resuming more strenuous exercise.
When chosen with clear and realistic expectations, our patients are usually pleased with their renewed and refreshed look from eyelid surgery in New York. Although we cannot stop the aging process, our patients are satisfied with their improvements for many years. The New York Group for Plastic Surgery can help you attain a natural, yet younger, look to your eye area.
