Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids and on the lower eyelids. Commonly referred to as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is a procedure that is often considered cosmetic because it promotes a more youthful appearance. However, eyelid surgery is also often completed for non-cosmetic reasons. For example, if a patient’s eyelids are interfering with his or her field of vision, eyelid surgery might be completed for functional reasons.

If you are located in the Manhattan area and you are experiencing issues with your eyelids, or if you want to have your eyelids altered for cosmetic reasons, it’s important that you schedule a consultation to find out if you are a good eyelid surgery candidate.

Eyelid surgery candidates typically have the following issues with their eyelids and the area surrounding their eyes:

  • Sagging upper eyelids
  • Skin that hangs over the eyelid’s natural fold
  • Skin that droops over the eyelashes
  • Eyelid skin that is puffy
  • Excessively baggy areas under the eyes

Eyelid surgery is very common among patients in the Manhattan area. In fact, many people experience puffy and sagging eyelids as they begin to age. This type of surgery can be completed as a stand-alone procedure, or it can be combined with other procedures that are designed to collectively create a more youthful facial appearance.
