Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a treatment that improves the signs of aging around the eyes. As we age, skin naturally stretches, muscles weaken and the effects of environmental factors cause uneven skin pigmentation. Because the skin around our eyes is more delicate than the rest of our body’s skin, the effects of aging start to show around our eyes first. At City Facial Plastics, we address changes to the upper and lower eyelids with a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.

Correct Droopy or Sagging Upper Eyelids

Excess skin on the upper eyelid is a common issue with aging. The skin becomes thinner, stretches and sags. This can make the eyes look tired and even sad. In some cases, drooping upper lids can be so prominent that it becomes difficult to completely see. In these cases, blepharoplasty may even be able to improve vision. Surgery involves removing or repositioning excess skin and/or fat, as needed.

Lower Eyelid Lift for Revitalized Eyes

Under the eye, sagging skin can create bags and wrinkles. This can make you older and tired. A lower eyelid blepharoplasty or eyelid lift removes the excess skin and fat that creates bags under the eyes. This can smooth and tighten the area below the eye for a revitalized and rejuvenated appearance. The incision is usually discreetly placed below the lower lashes.

Complete Eyelid Lift Surgery

In many cases, our patients want both an upper and lower eyelid lift to completely rejuvenate their eyes. This can help open the eyes and reduce the bags and wrinkling. It is common for a brow lift to be combined with a blepharoplasty to improve the overall upper portion of the face.

If you have eyes that look tired, sad or aged due to sagging upper or lower eyelids, contact City Facial Plastics today at our UES office to schedule an eyelid surgery consultation. Dr. Linkov is an experienced facial plastic surgeon who can create incredible results to rejuvenate your eyes.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!
