The delicate eye area is particularly susceptible to visible signs of aging. Over time, tissues may sag, brows may droop, and accumulated skin and fat on the upper eyelids can contribute to a tired and aged appearance. Not only can sagging upper eyelids affect aesthetics, but they may also impact vision. If you’ve noticed any of these signs, eyelid surgery presents a potential solution.
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery in Manhattan, New York City is designed to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. The primary objective of this surgery is to refine the overall look of the eye area while also addressing concerns related to vision impairment caused by drooping eyelids.

During your initial visit, our plastic surgeon will carefully examine your eyes and the surrounding area. The upper eyelids cannot be viewed in isolation from the other structures in the upper part of the face. Our surgeons provide effective treatment by taking the entire forehead-eyebrow complex into account, including the eyebrows, forehead and hairline. Based on this evaluation and your goals, they will recommend the appropriate surgical procedure for an optimal outcome.
Ideal candidates for the procedure are individuals with concerns about sagging or drooping eyelids, excess skin, or puffy bags around the eyes. A thorough evaluation by our skilled surgeons will determine your candidacy for the procedure.
Discomfort is typically minimal during the procedure, as it is performed under anesthesia. Patients may experience some swelling and bruising during the recovery period, but pain is generally well-managed with prescribed medications.
Eyelid lift recovery times vary, but patients can expect some initial swelling and bruising, which typically subsides within a few weeks. Most individuals can return to their regular activities within a week or two.
Our skilled surgeons strategically place incisions in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. Over time, any residual scars tend to fade and become less noticeable.
The results of the procedure are long-lasting. While the natural aging process continues, patients can enjoy a more youthful and refreshed appearance for many years.
Yes, in cases where drooping eyelids are obstructing vision, this surgery can help improve both the aesthetic appearance and functional aspects of the eyes.
