Eyelid Surgery in New York City
Rejuvenation of the eye area is one of the most effective ways to make a person look younger and more rested. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure that unveils the natural beauty of the eyes and restores a refreshed, vibrant appearance to the face. Dr. Matthew Schulman’s depth of experience and advanced technical knowledge allows him to achieve natural-looking results for eyelid surgery patients of our New York City practice.
Dr. Schulman has experience performing eyelid surgery for both aesthetic and functional reasons, including:
- Reduce the appearance of under eye bags
- Remove excess skin and fat above and below the eyes
- Improve hooded upper eyelids
- Refresh the appearance of “tired eyes”
Is Eyelid Surgery Right for Me?
Eyelid surgery offers youthful rejuvenation and enhancement of the natural beauty of your eyes. Dr. Schulman commonly performs this surgery to help reverse the signs of aging, but he also performs eyelid surgery on younger patients of our New York City practice who suffer from under eye bags and excess skin of the upper eyelids.
During your consultation, Dr. Schulman will take the time to walk you through your options and develop a treatment plan that will help you achieve your appearance goals. Depending on your unique needs and objectives, you might be interested in learning about other procedures that may help you attain an even more refreshed look, such as forehead lift, facelift, injectable fillers, and Botox®. Dr. Schulman will also explain your facility choices, anesthesia options, and expected recovery process.
The Blepharoplasty Procedure
Dr. Schulman performs eyelid surgery using the most advanced surgical techniques. During eyelid surgery, Dr. Schulman creates a small incision within the natural creases of the eyelid. Then, he delicately removes excess fat, trims excess skin, and finely sutures everything into place. For patients lacking lower lid support, he may perform a suspension procedure of the lower eyelids (canthoplasty).
Aftercare for eyelid surgery involves gentle care to prevent eyestrain, the use of gauze soaked in ice chips to reduce swelling, and rest to minimize bruising. Dr. Schulman will see you throughout your recovery period to help ensure smooth healing.
When swelling subsides, the results will be fully evident and the benefits may be enjoyed for a lifetime.
