STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK - As the aging process begins, sagging and drooping skin, especially around the eyes, can make people appear tired and older than they are. Eyelid surgery, also referred to as blepharoplasty, can correct this.
To restore a youthful, more alert look to the eyes, fat deposits and excess skin and muscles must be removed. The ideal procedure for this is eyelid surgery, which is typically performed on the upper and lower lids.
The advantages of eyelid surgery include:
- Reduced puffiness in the upper eyelids
- Eliminate bags under the eyes
- Excess skin that prohibits the natural fold of the eye from functioning can be removed
- Correct droopiness of the eyes
- Improve the lower lids by removing excess skin, which results in fewer fine lines and wrinkles
"While this surgery focuses on improving facial aesthetics, the greatest benefit of the procedure is the way patients feel after the surgery," said Dr. Andrew Miller, Staten Island facelift and lifestyle lift surgeon. "And while this procedure is viewed as cosmetic in nature, some people find it to be necessary."
There are some cases where removing excess skin from the eyes can restore proper vision to the patient. In instances such as this, some patients will find their insurance will cover the procedure, however coverage is not guaranteed.
Eyelid surgery in Staten Island is generally performed as an out patient procedure under general anesthesia. The surgery involves removing excess skin and tissue in the upper, lower or both lids. The incisions are hidden in the crease of the eyelid, which hides the scars. Lower lid incisions are made inside the eyelid to address bags, wrinkled skin and dark circles.
Recovery is expected to take one week with minimal swelling and bruising around the eyes for the first few days, says the Staten Island plastic surgeon.
