Blepharoplasty - known as eyelid Lift surgery in NYC
Your eyes can tell a lot about you. When the signs of aging begin to set in, the eyes can also be a dead giveaway of your age or make you look even older. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, with NYC plastic surgeon Dr. Scheinman can help reverse the effects of drooping eyelids and puffiness to restore a youthful and lively look to your eyes.
Is Eyelid Surgery Right for You?
Issues with your upper or lower eyelids can be improved with an eyelid surgery procedure. Eyelid surgery is most commonly used for treating age-related changes to the eyelids, but it can also be used to treat certain medical disorders.
You may benefit from eyelid surgery if you are struggling with one or more of the following:
- Drooping or sagging of the upper eyelid
- Puffiness or bags beneath the eyes
- Darkened or discolored circles around the eyes
- Vision obstruction due to drooping eyelids
- Congenital disorders (Ptosis, Dermatochalasis)
You may not require both upper and lower eyelid surgery. Dr. Scheinman will carefully observe your condition and listen to your expectations to determine which treatment plan will work best for you. Patients who have eyelid surgery also often undergo other facial surgeries such as a facelift or brow lift in order to achieve a more balanced rejuvenation of the entire face.
How Your Eyelid Surgery Will Be Performed
General anesthesia will be used to help you sleep throughout your surgery. Dr. Scheinman will then make a careful incision using the naturally existing creases and folds of your eyelids to conceal the incision lines. Any excess fat and tissue can be removed before trimming away excess skin and closing your incisions.
Recovering from Your Eyelid Surgery in NYC
You may experience some slight blurred vision at first, but this should clear up over the next couple of days. Keep your head elevated and allow your eyes some rest before returning to work at a computer or in front of a screen. As any bruising or swelling subsides, you will begin noticing the revitalizing results of your blepharoplasty procedure.
