The eyes are the most prone to developing aging signs, influenced by factors like genetics, environment, and age. Crepey skin, discoloration, and puffiness can commonly develop on the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is an effective plastic surgery procedure for improving the appearance of the eyes and addressing functional concerns.  Under the expertise of our skilled plastic surgeons at bodySCULPT®, individuals seeking blepharoplasty in Manhattan can anticipate a comprehensive facial transformation, resulting in heightened vitality and enhanced natural beauty.

The procedure provides both aesthetic and functional benefits such as –

  • Reduces the appearance of tired eyes
  • Improves eyelid crease
  • Corrects puffiness and bags under the eyes
  • Enhances facial symmetry
  • Improves vision
  • Creates tighter eyelid contour

In severe cases, drooping upper eyelids can obstruct the upper field of vision. Upper and lower eyelid surgery can address this problem, leading to a noticeable improvement in vision.

Blepharoplasty in Manhattan for More Attractive Eyes

The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids and tightening the skin, making you look more alert and young. Skilled in performing both traditional and minimally invasive surgical procedures, our surgeons will choose the right option based on your cosmetic goals and health condition.

  • Upper blepharoplasty: This surgery focuses on the upper eyelids to address sagging skin, excess fat, or drooping that may impact vision or contribute to an aged appearance. This procedure can create a more youthful and alert look.
  • Lower blepharoplasty: This procedure targets the lower eyelids, addressing issues such as under-eye bags, puffiness, and excess skin. It aims to rejuvenate the lower eye area and enhance overall facial harmony.

Our surgeons are skilled in combining upper and lower blepharoplasty in a single procedure to comprehensively rejuvenate the entire eye area. They can perform blepharoplasty options as standalone procedures or in conjunction with other facial surgeries, such as a face lift in NYC, for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
