Eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) corrects the signs of aging in the upper and lower eyelids. Thousands of men and women in NYC undergo this procedure every year to reduce puffiness and "bags" under the eyes as well as excess skin, which may even impair vision. Upper and lower eyelid surgery is done under sedation or local anesthesia and produces a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Common Questions about Eyelid Surgery:
What is eyelid surgery?
Blepharoplasty, or cosmetic eyelid surgery, is used to enhance the appearance of the eyes by removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids. Eyelid surgery can be done in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift and brow lift to achieve the desired look and is one of the most requested cosmetic surgery procedures.
How is eyelid surgery performed?
NYC Eyelid Surgeon, Dr. Kassir performs Blepharoplasty eyelid surgery in his surgical clinic in 799 Park Avenue, NYC office. He usually performs eyelid surgery with local anesthesia and IV sedation. The eyelid surgery procedure can take less than 45 minutes. Incisions are made by the eyelid surgeon along the eyelids in inconspicuous places: in the natural creases of the upper lids for upper eyelid blepharoplasty and just below the lash line on the lower lids for lower eyelid blepharoplasty. If no skin needs to be removed, nyc eyelid surgeon Dr. Kassir will likely perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, where the incision is made inside the lower eyelid and there are no visible scars. In all cases, the nyc eyelid surgeon then removes excess skin from the eyelids using a scalpel, laser or radiofrequency tool. Fat may be removed as well during the eyelid surgery procedure.
Recovery from the Eyelid Surgery:
Bruising, a feeling of tightness in the eyelids, and swelling are common after eyelid surgery but should subside within 2-4 weeks. Most patients resume normal activities in 3-5 days, when non-absorbable stitches are removed by the nyc eyelid surgeon, and can return to work in about 10 days.
By one to two months after surgery, you should see the actual results of your eyelid lift: a more awake and cheerful look around the eyes, and greater self-confidence.
