Eyelid Lift In Manhattan

 

EYELID LIFT SURGERY

A primary reason for droopy eyes is simply due to age. As everything droops, so do the eyebrows. When the outer parts of the eyebrows droop, the skin of the upper eyelids will look saggy, as if you had developed extra skin that was not there several years before. Trimming this "extra" skin can dramatically improve that droopy look.

Another reason for "tired eyes" is because of migrating eyelid fat. This fat is held back by a thin wall of fibrous tissue called the orbital septum, which sags over time. The fat, held firmly back by this wall in youth can bulge with age, giving you "baggy" upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty trims this extra fat and tightens the wall, restoring a



THE SURGERY

Eyebrow Lift

Eyelid lifts can either be done alone or together with eyebrow and forehead lifts. If done alone, the operation takes about one and a half hours for both upper and both lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids alone typically takes less than 30 minutes and is most often performed under local anesthesia only.

For those patients with puffiness under the eye or baggy upper and lower eyelids, laser eyelid surgery can reduce and often eliminate these problems. The end results are a more alert and youthful look around the eyes.



OTHER OPTIONS

Eyelift

Sometimes eyelid lifts are combined with other procedures called endoscopic eyebrow and forehead lifts to improve the height and maintain the contour of the upper eyebrow. Dr. Della Rocca will discuss whether you might benefit from this combined procedure during your initial consultation.






THE RECOVERY

Recovery from eyelid surgery is complete within seven to ten days. Initially a small amount of lumpiness is usual at the corners of the eyes. Minimal blurry vision quickly resolves. Sunglasses allow you to go out in public immediately after surgery, and make-up can be worn within about one week. Normal activity can be resumed the next day, and exercise can be resumed within 7 to 10 days after surgery
