Your eyes make a lasting impression and impact the overall appearance of your face. When your eyes look tired or older, your entire face has that appearance. Changes to the skin and tissue on the upper and lower eyelids are often the cause of droopy eyes and eye bags. Excess skin, sagging tissue and fat deposits can affect the shape and youthfulness of the eyes. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can rejuvenate the eyes, making you look more energetic and like your younger self.
Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, is one of the top facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons in the New York area, offering superior results for those seeking eyelid lift surgery. He uses advanced techniques to remove excess skin and fat from the upper or lower eyelids while gently tightening and lifting the lids. As with all his cosmetic procedures, Dr. Rosenberg focuses on creating results that look natural, without a pulled or “fake” appearance. Often, upper and lower eyelid lifts are performed together to ensure the entire eye area looks revitalized and youthful after the surgery.
Upper and Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
For the upper eyelid, surgical lifting can open the eyes and diminish a droopy, sad appearance. The incision is made in the upper eyelid crease to remove excess skin or fat and tighten the area. Lost elasticity of the skin can allow the top eyelid to become heavy, and the eyes look smaller and hooded. An eyelid lift reverses this effect for wider, happier eyes that look years younger.
Lower eyelid lifts require an incision under the bottom lashes to access skin and fat that cause bagging and puffiness. Liposuction, excess skin removal and lifting will smooth the area under the eyes, eliminating those eye bags.
Eyelid lifts can have a transforming effect on the entire face. You can appear younger, happier and more energetic, looking more like you feel. If you are interested in blepharoplasty, contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenberg.
