Blepharoplasty New York


Blepharoplasty Procedure in NYC

People are most likely to pay attention to the eyes since they are the most noticeable feature on the face. Regrettably, the eyes are frequently the first face feature to exhibit signs of aging. The skin and muscles surrounding the eyes continue to lose elasticity and relax as we get older, which can give the appearance of bags under the eyes.

Blepharoplasty, often known as cosmetic eyelid lift surgery, can give patients a more refreshed and young appearance while also boosting their self-confidence.

What is a blepharoplasty procedure?

Blepharoplasty, often known as an eyelid lift, is a form of cosmetic surgery that restores a more youthful appearance to the eyelids. Either the upper or lower eyelids can be treated with this procedure. During eyelid surgery, excess skin, muscle, and fat are either removed or repositioned in the patient’s body.

In order to prevent an abnormal position of the eyelid after surgery, this treatment may occasionally necessitate the tightening of the lower eyelid. Blepharoplasty does not get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, but it helps alleviate the appearance of tiredness and age around the eyes. It is possible to combine this treatment with other facial cosmetic procedures, such as Botox, which smooths out wrinkles to complete a more youthful appearance. 

What are the advantages of having blepharoplasty performed?

The primary advantage of blepharoplasty is that it can refresh the look of the eyes, giving the patient the impression of being more rested and less exhausted than before the procedure. Keeping the eyelids looking natural is one of the most important goals that Dr. Saman strives to achieve. Other advantages of eyelid surgery include the following:
  • Reduction in the appearance of under-eye bags; 

  • Removal of excess skin and fat; 

  • Correction of sagging skin and drooping eyelids; 

  • Restoration of healthy facial tissue for a more youthful appearance; 

  • Restoration of a more rested and alert appearance; 

  • Improvement in field of vision;

Eyelid procedures offered at Saman MD

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty and lower eyelid surgery are some of the cosmetic operations that Dr. Saman does around the eyes.

Upper blepharoplasty – Upper eyelid surgery

It’s possible that as you get older, the skin on your upper eyelid will start to become more relaxed and saggy, giving you the appearance of being fatigued or irritated. Excess skin that hangs down over the edge of your eyelid can obscure your vision, impede you from applying makeup correctly, and make you feel self-conscious, Blepharoplasty, which is surgery on the top eyelids, can give you a new look that is more awake, alert, and pleasant.

Lower blepharoplasty – Lower eyelid surgery

Lower eyelid lifts are a type of blepharoplasty, which is a cosmetic operation that, like upper blepharoplasty, aims to improve the appearance of the eyes. They diminish the appearance of sagging skin, dark circles, and puffiness around the eyes, which are all telltale indications of age. Eyelid lifts are one of the many cosmetic procedures that can help you look younger and better overall by improving the appearance of your facial features.

What is the blepharoplasty procedure?

During upper lid blepharoplasty surgery, extra skin is removed from the area beneath the lower eyelids, and the eyelids themselves are reshaped. After that, fat might be relocated or fully removed from the body. In order to achieve the appearance of younger, more refreshed eyelids, a lower blepharoplasty involves the removal of excess skin and sometimes fat from above the eyes, as well as fatty tissue from under the eyes, tightening of the underlying muscle, and the removal of extra facial folds of loose, hanging, wrinkled, or sagging tissue.

How exactly does one go about performing a blepharoplasty?

Before beginning the procedure on the patient’s eyes, either a local or general anesthetic is administered.During the surgical procedure, you might be given drugs to help you relax and feel more at ease. This medication comes in three forms: general anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or sedative that you take orally. Your physician will decide which course of action is appropriate for you to take.

Healing the incisions made during eyelid surgery

Sutures are typically used to close any incisions that are made when operating on the eyelids. After a few days have passed, the surgeon or his nurse will remove the sutures from the wound. Eyelid surgery scars are made to seem natural within the natural creases of the eyelids, and they become scarcely noticeable within a few months’ time. Therefore, you should not worry too much about the incisions being visible after the procedure.

What are the potential risks of blepharoplasty?

An upper lid blepharoplasty and a lower eyelid blepharoplasty, much like any other operation, carries with it the inherent (but manageable) dangers of scarring, bleeding (and bruising), infection (superficial or deep), and pain (temporary or permanent).

However, the most significant danger associated with any form of cosmetic surgery is the possibility that the patient would be unhappy with the results. In most cases, Dr. Saman is able to provide his patients with the results they want after conducting an appropriate consultation that consists of a comprehensive examination as well as a photo evaluation. However, we are unable to regulate the process by which tissues mend, and some patients heal in an unanticipated manner, which can result in asymmetries and other irregularities that, in some cases, call for additional procedures.

What exactly takes place during the consultation phase of a blepharoplasty?

A thorough questionnaire and an evaluation of the patient’s physical condition come first in a consultation. Your surgeon will review the photos with you after they have been taken. As a result of the fact that some patients seek adjustments that are not always attainable during surgery, this is a crucial tool for communication.

After that, we will discuss the operation, as well as the recuperation process, and Dr. Moubayed will answer any and all questions that you may have. Your surgeon will talk to you about all of the blepharoplasty eyelid surgery options available to you, including eyelid surgery on both the upper and lower eyelids.

The decision to have cosmetic facial surgery is a significant one, therefore it is critical that you have all of the relevant information at your disposal before moving forward with the procedure.

How to get ready for your blepharoplasty consultation?

It is a good idea, and it is simple to do, that you prepare yourself for the consultation that you have scheduled.

To begin, you should get yourself ready to make a list of the features around your eyes that you would like to enhance and then arrange them in descending order of significance. These features include your brow position, upper lids, lower lids, skin colour, excess skin, and fat. Do you also have discomfort in other areas of your face, such as your jowls, neck, chin, nose, or lips?

Finally, if you have had cosmetic soft tissue fillers injected into your face or around your eyes, you should make an effort to discover which products were used and when they were administered. If you have already undergone facial surgery, you should bring the operative report from any previous treatments you’ve had done if it is at all possible to do so.

What is the average length of time required to do a blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is known for its safety, delicacy, and accuracy. It can take anything from half an hour to two hours, depending on the amount of eyelids being removed and the related methods.

Are there non surgical alternatives to blepharoplasty?

Certain patients who have been properly selected can reap the benefits of less invasive resurfacing operations or injectable fillers and achieve outstanding rejuvenation outcomes from these treatments. Fat injections around the eyes can be beneficial for some patients, particularly those who want the effects to be more permanent.

However, nothing can take the place of a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon who is able to provide the whole spectrum of facial rejuvenation techniques, including those that do not require surgery and those that do, so that you may find out which one is most suited to your particular face.

According to the patient’s facial aging profile, Dr. Saman is able to advise patients on the sort of operation that will provide the most personally personalized results.

What complications could arise following eyelid surgery?

Any surgery on the eyelids carries with it the possibility of less common complications such as lagophthalmos (an inability to close the eye), malposition of the eyelids as a result of poor scarring, injury to the muscles around the eyes, strabismus, dry eyes, or loss of eyelashes either temporarily or permanently. Last but not least, any operation performed in or around the eyes poses the extremely remote possibility of vision loss.

The principle of conservatism is the most essential component of eyelid surgery (not being too aggressive). In his treatment of patients, Dr. Saman takes a method that is both conservative and customized. In addition, he has vast experience performing face surgery. After surgery, every patient is given extremely specific and very specific instructions, and they are followed very meticulously. All of this is done in an effort to reduce the likelihood of the dangers described earlier.

Is upper blepharoplasty the same as a forehead lift?

Both of these processes are distinct from one another. Sometimes, a fatigued appearance is caused not by a lack of sleep but rather by the heavy appearance of the eyebrows, which is caused when the eyebrows are positioned lower than the optimum desired position. A consultation is the only way to determine which of these two procedures—a forehead lift or blepharoplasty—is going to be most beneficial for you.

What anesthetic is used during the blepharoplasty procedure?

Depending on the complexity of the operation, the patient’s preferences, and any other treatments that are related to it, blepharoplasty may be performed under local anesthetic, local anesthesia combined with sedation, or general anesthesia.

The kind of anesthesia known as complete intravenous anesthesia is the one that is utilized for general anesthesia (without using anesthetic gasses). This particular type of anesthetic is not only risk-free but also alleviates post-operative symptoms such as nausea and coughing. Our patients frequently comment on how enjoyable their sedation and/or anesthetic experience was.

How long does the healing period take after a blepharoplasty?

The patient begins their recuperation at home with very specific instructions after leaving the surgical center on the same day as the procedure.

After 5 to 7 days have passed since your surgery, you will have your first post-operative appointment, during which your sutures will be removed and your incision will be checked.

Bruises might last for as long as two or three weeks in some cases. This is the amount of time that is suggested for healing after undergoing cosmetic surgery around the eyes.

After one week, you may return to light physical activity; however, it is recommended that you wait three weeks before engaging in more strenuous activities such as weightlifting in order to reduce the risk of bleeding.

How long does bruising & swelling last after eyelid surgery?

After one week, the majority of our patients are ready to be seen. However, after three weeks, you will be quite presentable in society and even have the option of participating in a professional picture session if you so desire. The vast majority of the swelling goes down during the first three months, but some minor swelling that is just barely noticeable can linger for up to a year after that. Do not be reluctant to get in touch with your doctor Saman MD if you do not experience a full recovery from your illness.

  • Your eyes look as though they are irritated or exhausted;
  • You do not have eye illness or dry eyes;
