At New York’s Facial, Plastic, Reconstructive and Laser Surgery, we know that the eyes are the most attractive feature of your face and are often called the “window to your soul.” As we get older, eyelid skin loosens and the eyebrows become droopy, making eyes look tired and heavy. The loose skin may hang down over the eyelashes like a shade, obstructing your vision. The fat under the eyes can pooch out, creating bags.
A blepharoplasty procedure, also known as an upper or lower eyelid lift, can surgically improve the appearance of the eyelids by removing excess fat and skin. Our surgeons are experts at blepharoplasty, often repositioning the fat to prevent the eyes from looking hollow or sunken. Incisions are hidden and often invisible. Advanced lasers are used to resurface the skin. In this fashion, Poughkeepsie eyelid surgery can restore your youthful appearance, making you look rested and years younger.
Who Should Have Poughkeepsie Blepharoplasty?
It is important that you are in good health and do not have any pre-existing eye problems. At New York’s Facial, Plastic, Reconstructive and Laser Surgery, your health comes first – we always make sure to get medical clearance from your primary care doctor and arrange for ophthalmology (eye) clearance. Patients with certain endocrine disorders may not be eligible for eyelid surgery due to the increased risk of swelling and other issues involving the eyes.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on patients of any ethnicity seeking to reduce the appearance of aging around the eyes, or who have blockage of their vision. These patients are often told they “look exhausted” or “annoyed” even when they are not.
About Recovery from Poughkeepsie Blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is usually performed in our on-site surgical suite using mild sedation. After carefully removing and tightening the extra fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelids, your surgeon closes the incisions where the scars are hidden, healing in the natural folds of your eyelid or inside the eyelids where they are not visible.
Poughkeepsie Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure – most patients go home shortly after the procedure. Recovery takes a week to ten days, at which time you may go back to work and resume light activities. It is common to experience some discomfort, bruising, and puffiness during the first weeks after surgery. At New York’s Facial, Plastic, Reconstructive and Laser Surgery, we provide you with complete postoperative guidance including our Rapid Recovery Protocol to help you heal quickly using the safest and most natural options.
