Get ready to say goodbye to droopy eyelids with eyelid surgery
Eyelid surgery (also called an eyelift or blepharoplasty) is one of the most common facial surgeries performed in the U.S. – and, because the eyes are what people first notice about you, the results can be stunning.
Join the many satisfied patients of MAXiM Facial Aesthetics who can’t believe how different they look after a single eyelid rejuvenation procedure. There are many types of eyelid procedures we offer at our New York City and Long Island locations.
In general, eyelifts involve removing sagging skin from under the eyes in addition to removing excess skin from the upper eyelids. It’s a delicate area, requiring the finesse of an accomplished surgeon.
Depending on a patient’s needs, certain types of eyelifts may be performed. At MAXiM, the various eyelid procedures we offer are as follows:
An upper blepharoplasty involves surgery on the upper eyelid only.
This type of eyelid procedure involves surgery on the area beneath the eyes, through an incision just under the lower lashes.
This type of eyelid procedures also involves surgery on the area beneath the eyes, but through an incision from inside the eyelid. The benefit of this type of lower-eyelid procedure is that it leaves no external scarring.
A forehead lift (browplasty) begins with an incision at the top of the forehead, just beneath the hairline, and pulling the skin upward to raise the eyebrows.
This is considered a traditional eyelift procedure, in which skin is tightened up above and beneath the eyes.
In this popular combination, sagging skin above and below the eyes is surgically restored, and a forehead lift raises the position of the eyebrows for a more engaging appearance and to reduce the appearance of horizontal wrinkles on the forehead.
Combining some of these surgeries often yields the most rejuvenation to the eyes – but every situation is different. You'll want to discuss with the doctor which procedures may be most appropriate for you.
Isn’t it time you enjoyed a more youthful, alert appearance after an eyelift? If your upper eyelid skin is interfering with your vision, surgery can result in improved eyesight, too.
