The eyes tell the world so much about you. They can reveal if you are tired or sad and may suggest your age by the lines, wrinkles and sagging on the eyelids. If your eyes make you look tired or older than you prefer, there is a cosmetic facial solution. An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, can transform the eyes to achieve a more youthful and energetic appearance. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio is a highly respected and board certified plastic surgeon who offers eyelid lift surgery at Uptown Body Contouring in NYC.
Upper Eyelid Lift Surgery
The upper eyelid is vital for creating the shape of the eye and allowing normal function. When the skin on the upper eyelid sags, it can make the eyes look smaller and tired. The delicate skin around the eyes is very susceptible to stretching and drooping. When wrinkles and excess skin form on the upper lid, it can make you look tired and older than you feel.
Upper blepharoplasty is used to remove excess skin and fat from the upper eyelid. A small incision can be made along the crease to tighten the tissue. Not only can blepharoplasty improve the appearance of the upper eyelid, but it can also resolve functional issues if the excess skin was obscuring the vision.
Lower Eyelid Lift Surgery
The delicate skin and tissue on the lower eyelid can sag with aging. Eye bags can appear that make you look perpetually tired and sad. Lower blepharoplasty is used to remove excess skin and fat, then tighten the undereye area. Incisions can be made either inside the lower eyelid or along the lash line.
Both upper and lower eyelid lift procedures can transform the eyes. Many patients will have both eyelids lifted at the same time or have this procedure performed in conjunction with a facelift or other cosmetic treatments.
If you want to rejuvenate your lower or upper eyelids, blepharoplasty may be the solution. To learn more about eyelid lift surgery, contact our team at Uptown Body Contouring in Manhattan to schedule a blepharoplasty consultation with Dr. Del Vecchio.
