Welcome to Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery for eyelid surgery in NYC on Park Avenue.

 Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can correct a multitude of concerns around the eye area.

Creating a Youthful, Wakeful Look

The eyes are often the first feature noticed on our face—and they are also one of the first areas that truly reflect our age. As we get older, the skin and muscles surrounding our eyelids begin to loosen and sag.

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can effectively restore a youthful look to your eyes and improve the overall attractiveness of your face. If you feel bothered by eyes that appear to be aging, it’s time to explore the options of blepharoplasty with Dr. Steven Pearlman, a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon in NYC.

 

Anyone who is bothered by sagging eyelids, puffy eyes, discoloration or undereye bags may be an excellent candidate for a blepharoplasty. Dr. Pearlman suggests that patients be in good mental and physical health, with no major medical issues that might interfere with surgery or its recovery. Patients should be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for improvement based on their confidential consultation at our Manhattan office.

A Consultation With Dr. Pearlman

How it Works

Consultation

To prepare for your blepharoplasty in NYC, you will first meet with Dr. Pearlman for a consultation at our office on Park Avenue. Dr. Pearlman will listen to your concerns and desired results from this procedure.

He will then examine the treatment area, explain potential options for the results that will best suit you, and answer any questions you may have.

Whether you’re treating tired eyes, drooping eyelids, or another concern, your blepharoplasty / eyelid surgery in NYC with Dr. Pearlman will have natural, rejuvenated results.

Eyelid Surgery in NYC

We often perform a more natural conservation lower eyelid blepharoplasty by preserving the fat that was bulging and creating the bags, then re-positioning that fat pad into the hollow area beneath called the tear trough.
We use your own fat to create a smooth contour. The “hill above” is lowered and the excess placed in the valley that was beneath.

What To Expect

Upper Eyelids

Dr. Pearlman makes incisions in the natural creases of the eyelids to remove excess skin and fat while adjusting muscle tissue. Upper eyelid surgery through blepharoplasty also reduces sagging skin or hooding that may impair vision, fine lines, and puffiness of the upper eyelids

Lower Eyelids

Dr. Pearlman often is able to hide incisions inside the eyelid so no one can ever tell you had surgery. This is called transconjunctival blepharoplasty. We sometimes combine this with laser therapy or an incision just below the lash line of the lower eyelids to remove excess skin. Lower eyelid surgery through blepharoplasty reduces loose skin and fine wrinkles in the lower eyelids as well as puffiness and bags under the eyes.

Recovery

As with all of our surgical treatments, our team will provide you with detailed and thorough guidelines for your post-surgery care. The typical patient recovery period for eyelid surgery in NYC from Dr. Pearlman is just 1 week.

Frequently Asked Questions

Blepharoplasty

How long do eyelid surgery results last? 

The results of eyelid surgery last for many years. The tissues around the eyes will continue to age naturally over time.

How soon can I wear contacts after blepharoplasty surgery?

Most individuals can wear contact lenses about 1 to 2 weeks after surgery.

What is the best age to undergo an eyelid lift?

While there is no “best” age to undergo an eyelid lift, most of our eyelid surgery patients are in their 40s or beyond. Some people may decide to undergo the procedure in their 30s and occasionally even in their 20s.

What is the cost of eyelid surgery in NYC?

The cost of eyelid surgery in NYC will vary from patient to patient because eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper lids, the lower lids, or both at the same time. If you receive additional treatments such as dermal fillers or laser therapy, then the costs will also naturally be affected. Dr. Pearlman will provide you with a full, detailed quote during your private NYC consultation for blepharoplasty. We will also assist you with securing financing from a variety of reputable healthcare lenders.

What is the recovery time for blepharoplasty in NYC from Dr. Pearlman?

The recovery time for a blepharoplasty is 7 to 10 days in most instances.

Will blepharoplasty scars be noticeable?

To make blepharoplasty scars as inconspicuous as possible, Dr. Pearlman makes incisions in the natural creases of the eyelids and sometimes inside the lower eyelid to hide them.
