Some patients choose upper eyelid blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to reduce the signs of aging and deliver a more youthful appearance. Others choose it because they want to complement other facial procedures they’re receiving. But still others suffer from secondary issues associated with drooping eyelids, including vision impairment, and wish to improve their visual health. Regardless of your reason for choosing eyelid surgery, our New York City cosmetic surgeon is here to help. Please contact Manhattan Surgical Care today at 212-308-1566 to schedule your upper eyelid rejuvenation consultation.
Blepharoplasty is an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery that addresses puffiness and sagging in the eyelids. These aesthetic issues can make you look tired and feel older than you really are. In some extreme cases, sagging eyelids can even interfere with your field of vision by drooping over your eyes.
In a blepharoplasty procedure, Dr. Pakeman makes small incisions in the contour of the upper eyelid. These are strategically located so as to be virtually unnoticeable after you recover. Working within the openings made by these incisions, Dr. Pakeman then repositions and adjusts the fat and muscle tissue of the upper eyelid and then removes any excess skin that may be causing you problems. Finally, he closes the incisions and you are sent home with a comprehensive recovery plan.
The result of the surgery is a more invigorated, youthful appearance. After you’ve recovered from your procedure, you’ll notice a marked difference in how your eyelids look and feel. Many of our New York City area patients even include upper blepharoplasty as part of a more comprehensive treatment plan that may also include other surgical options like facelift and brow lift, or dermal fillers like Restylane.
If sagging, puffy upper eyelids are interfering with your vision, your insurance plan may even cover all of part of your upper eyelid rejuvenation surgery. We know insurance can be confusing, and our staff will be happy to help you learn what your plan does and does not cover. If your plan won’t cover the procedure, or if you are seeking the surgery for purely aesthetic reasons, we’re pleased to offer a number of attractive financing options as well. We believe that our procedures should be available to anyone who wants to improve their appearance.
Upper eyelid rejuvenation can help you look better and feel better, and it may cost less than you imagined. To learn more, please call Manhattan Surgical Care today at 212-308-1566 to arrange a private, confidential consultation with our New York City plastic surgeon.
