As we age our eyes are one of the first parts of the face to change. You might notice that applying eyeliner is not as easy as it once was!
Our eyelids can actually stretch, making it easier for excess fat and skin to gather there. Drooping and sagging eyelids can cause us to look older and can even impair our vision. An upper blepharoplasty in NYC at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery can be the answer to these problems.
What is an upper blepharoplasty?
An upper blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that removes excess skin, fat, and/or muscle from above the eyelid to address drooping or sagging eyelids. It’s a relatively simple procedure as far as plastic surgery goes, it can be completed in as little as 45 minutes with local anesthetic.
Sometimes we combine an upper blepharoplasty with a lower eyelid surgery or a brow lift to provide total rejuvenation of the eye area.
What is recovery like?
The downtime from an upper blepharoplasty in NYC is about 1 week, though it might be longer if combined with other plastic surgery procedures. Most patients are able to fully enjoy their results by the end of week 2! Of course full healing takes a few months.
How long do results last from upper blepharoplasty?
The results from your upper eyelid surgery will last for many years, especially with proper skin care and maintenance. Of course, the aging process continues and it’s possible for the skin to begin to sag again, however most patients don’t experience this for 10 to 15 years.
