Issues with the eyelids can create a variety of problems, both of the functional and aesthetic variety. Sagging in the lower eyelids, for example, or extra tissue that might be present in the upper eyelids, for another, can cause d

Sometimes problems with the eyelid can simply arise as a part of the aging process, the slowing of collagen production and loss of skin elasticity causing a sagging or drooping appearance, creating a tired and haggard look around the clock. Other times, these issues can come up as a simple result of genetics.

In either case, New York Laser Vision offers eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) to patients suffering from issues with their upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Reach out to us today to learn how we can correct your functional and/or aesthetic issues, allowing you to enjoy unobstructed vision and a much higher quality of life.

What Exactly Is the Blepharoplasty Procedure?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, involves a number of different procedures that are designed to correct issues with the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or both. This procedure can address a number of different issues:

  • Fat deposits above or below the eyes
  • Extra skin hanging over the upper eyelid
  • Drooping eyelids
  • Sunken appearance below eyelids
  • Loose layers of fatty tissue
  • Bulging fatty deposits
  • Tired, haggard appearance
  • Lost volume and definition around the eyes
  • Wrinkles, creases, or crepe-like skin around the eyes

Depending on the specific issue your procedure is designed to correct, your surgeon will discuss his specific technique with you, helping you to fully understand what you can expect in terms of your results.

In many cases, the blepharoplasty procedure does not leave behind noticeable scarring. Not only are incisions typically placed in areas that are difficult to see, but they are also quite small and difficult to detect without any kind of up-close inspection.

What’s the Recovery Process Like?

Eyelid surgery does come with a bit of a recovery period, but the downtime is not quite as significant as it might be with a more invasive procedure. You’ll experience bruising and swelling in the treatment area, which is normal, and will subside over the course of a week or two. You’ll want to take about seven to 10 days off work and other activities, staying at home and resting as you recover.

If you’ve been dealing with problems involving your upper or lower eyelids, blepharoplasty might be the perfect solution for you. Also known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty at New York Laser Vision can help to correct issues that are both functional and aesthetic, restoring your vision and your self-confidence in equal measure. Reach out to us today to learn more about how we can help you live life to the fullest with blepharoplasty.
