Cosmetic Surgery Associates of New York offers blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to New York women and men who want to brighten their look, eliminate the "tired" appearance of aging eyes, and restore a more youthful glow to their face. A blepharoplasty procedure is highly effective in reducing the excess fat and tissue that causes bags below the eyes. In addition, eyelid surgery can eliminate wrinkles and sagging folds of skin on the eyelids. The eyes often exhibit the first signs of aging; however, the effective methods we employ for eyelid surgery may remove years off of your appearance.

If you would like to find out more about eyelid surgery at any of our New York locations, request a complimentary consultation online or contact us at (914) 761-8667(914) 761-8667. Our surgeons look forward to helping you achieve your reconstructive and cosmetic goals.

What's New

Some women and men may be good candidates for one of the latest forms of blepharoplasty our New York eyelid surgery specialists perform: an advanced technique called transconjunctival blepharoplasty. During this procedure, the incision is made inside the lower eyelid, allowing our surgeons to remove unwanted fat tissue. Recovery time is usually between 3 to 5 days.

The CSANY Difference

At Cosmetic Surgery Associates of New York, our surgeons have decades of experience with this procedure. Additionally, we can combine other surgical and nonsurgical facial enhancements to improve the overall result of your surgery, helping to achieve dramatic, yet natural results. In addition to offering the latest techniques with eyelid surgery, we tailor every procedure to what you need, making it a unique experience.

Procedure Overview

Your blepharoplasty surgeon in New York will make certain the diminutive incisions trace the natural contour lines along the lower and upper eyelids. The thin surgical scars are virtually undetectable and blend into the natural lines and folds of the eyelids. Westchester women and men may choose eyelid surgery on its own or in conjunction with a face lift or with other aesthetically enhancing procedures.

Lower eyelid surgery is often combined with laser skin treatments to smooth and tighten the lower eyelid skin. The result is a reinvigorated look, one that reflects your inner youth and projects it outward.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can eyelid surgery correct crow's feet?

For the most part, eyelid surgery by itself will not eliminate crow's feet. However, eyelid surgery can be combined with other rejuvenation procedures including a face lift, or BOTOX® Cosmetic for a more comprehensive and extensive rejuvenation.

Is a brow lift a better option for sagging eyelids than eyelid surgery?

A brow lift can help refresh and rejuvenate a sad or tired appearance, and can be performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery. Sometimes sagging brows can contribute to sagging eyelids or excess skin of the lid, so it is important that your surgeon assesses exactly what is causing the sagging.

How long is recovery?

Recovering from eyelid surgery varies between individuals; however, following post-operative instructions given by your surgeon will help to speed up your recovery time. In general, it can be expected that you will need to take about 7 to 10 days off of work to recover. Makeup can help camouflage any slight bruising that may persist.
