Are you tired of feeling less than confident about your appearance? Eyelid surgery (sometimes known as blepharoplasty) is designed to remove excess tissue from around the eyes so your features seem more youthful and alert. At Lee Ann M. Klausner, M.D., PLLC in Manhattan, our skilled professionals are eager to guide you through this cutting-edge cosmetic procedure.

Anyone interested in this treatment should take the first step and book a personalized consultation with female facial plastic surgeon Dr. Lee Ann M. Klausner. We proudly serve patients in the Upper East Side, Yorkville, Lenox Hill, and Carnegie Hill.

What causes signs of aging around the eyes?

Numerous factors contribute to unwanted signs of aging around the eyes. Genetics, smoking, sun exposure, stress, and lifestyle choices are all possible causes of wrinkles and sagging in this region. And unfortunately, no amount of topical creams or over-the-counter products can erase drooping skin. Eyelid surgery is emerging as one of the most popular and reliable ways to restore a more youthful look.

How does blepharoplasty work?

Blepharoplasty involves addressing excess tissue and fatty deposits around the eye area. It can be performed on the upper or lower lids, and many people choose to have surgery on both. During a consultation in Manhattan, Dr. Klausner will thoroughly assess your condition and customize a treatment plan that produces the most natural-looking outcomes possible. We take into account your unique anatomy and desired results.

Patients in the Upper East Side, Yorkville, Lenox Hill, and Carnegie Hill can address the following concerns with upper and lower eyelid surgery:

  • Hooding or sagging of the upper eyelids
  • Drooping lids that obscure vision
  • Puffiness and bags in the lower lids
  • Tired, sunken-in appearance around the eyes
  • Facial asymmetry due to excess skin

What to expect during eyelid surgery

Before starting this cosmetic procedure, our skilled female facial plastic surgeon will carefully mark the treatment areas along natural creases where incisions should be made. Our advanced techniques ensure minimal scarring and natural-looking outcomes. During the procedure, which typically lasts one to two hours, Dr. Klausner removes excess skin and/or tissue while tightening the underlying muscles if necessary.

How long is recovery after blepharoplasty?

Some swelling, bruising, and redness are normal after eyelid surgery. Patients should follow the post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Klausner for a safe and successful recovery. You should begin to appreciate your improved appearance after several weeks. We may recommend follow-up appointments so we can measure your progress and ensure optimal outcomes.

How to maintain your refreshed results

Though the results of blepharoplasty are long-lasting, surgery cannot prevent signs of aging from forming in the future. To ensure long-term success, patients should follow a proper skincare routine that includes using sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection as well as applying eye cream to keep the area hydrated. Avoid smoking and sun exposure, as these accelerate aging and can sabotage your outcomes.
