What is Blepharoplasty?
Also called eyelid surgery or an eye lift, blepharoplasty in New York City is a cosmetic procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, muscle, and sometimes fat.
These tissues are removed from the lower and upper eyelids to improve the appearance of the eyelids or correct vision problems related to overhanging eyelids.
Eyelid surgery can correct:
- Drooping upper lids
- Puffiness in the area below your lids
- Eyelid problems that may obstruct your vision
Drooping eyelids are a major reason why most people consider eyelid surgery. The primary goal of the surgery is to trim away loose excess skin on the eyelids for a fresher, more youthful appearance. The surgery enhances the appearance of your lids and boosts your self-image and confidence.
Blepharoplasty can also improve your vision by offering clear, less-obstructed vision once excess skin, muscle, and fat are removed.
