Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a popular procedure that can restore the youthful appearance of your eyes. There are two types of eyelid surgery, upper blepharoplasty (eye lift) and lower blepharoplasty (eye bag surgery). At Glassman Plastic Surgery, we are dedicated to providing the best blepharoplasty results NYC has to offer.
The Benefits of Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It may be performed for cosmetic reasons or to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient’s field of vision. Blepharoplasty can be combined with BOTOX® treatments to raise the eyebrows or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet or dark circles under the eyes.
How Blepharoplasty is Performed
The procedure is usually performed in an office with local anesthesia and lasts 45 minutes to a few hours depending on how much work is done. Incisions are made along the eyelids in inconspicuous places (in the creases of the upper lids, and just below the lashes on the lower lids). The surgeon removes excess tissue through these incisions and then stitches them closed with fine sutures. In the case that no skin needs to be removed, the surgeon will likely perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, where the incision is made inside the lower eyelid and there are no visible scars.
There will be some swelling and bruising around the area following your blepharoplasty in NYC. any pain or discomfort can be managed with medication. The length of your recovery will vary based on the type of procedure performed, but on average patients need around two weeks to recover.
