Eye Lift Surgery

A blepharoplasty, or eye lift, is a procedure performed by our highly-qualified Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Team to help lift sagging eyelids, tighten muscles, and remove excess fat from underneath the eyes (under-eye bags).

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and the muscles around our eyes begins to weaken, causing unsightly upper eyelid drooping and pronounced bags of fat both above and below the eyes.

Genetics also play a role in the degree of fat accumulation that develops in the eye area as a person ages. Our New York facial plastic surgeons have years of experience in artistry and creating natural-looking results.

Candidates For Blepharoplasty (Eye Lid Surgery)

Just about anyone is a good candidate for undergoing this transforming cosmetic surgery eyelift procedure.  An ideal blepharoplasty patient is one who is in good health (no major health issues or eye diseases) and who is currently experiencing a less-than-desirable appearance in the areas around the eyes, including the eyelids.

We require that all our patients stop smoking at least two weeks prior to the surgery and do not start smoking again afterward. Cigarettes cause constriction of the blood vessels in the skin, thus delaying healing and complicating patients' end results.

The Eye Lift Procedure

The eye lift procedure is done under general anesthesia which will be administered intravenously. Patients are carefully monitored during the entire procedure by an anesthesiologist, or doctor who specializes in anesthesia for surgical patients.

The eye lift procedure can last anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, depending upon the extent of correction being made to the eyelids. The procedures for upper and lower eyelid correction are shown in the videos below.
