The skin around the eyes is delicate, thin and susceptible to stretching and losing elasticity with aging. Years of squinting, blinking, rubbing and cosmetic application/removal can cause stress to the skin, resulting in loose, excess skin on the eyelids. Excess eyelid skin can impact both the upper and lower eyelids, creating lines, wrinkles, bags and drooping. At LM Medical NYC in Manhattan, we offer advanced options in excess eyelid skin removal surgery to restore energetic, youthful eyes.

Excess skin on the upper eyelid is a common issue. While genetics can be responsible for excess skin on the upper eyelid (dermatochalasis), the most common cause is aging. Excess or stretched skin can fold over the eyelid, making the eyes look smaller. In severe cases, the fold of extra skin can impact vision. An upper blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, can remove excess skin and tighten the upper eyelid to create eyes that look wider, youthful and more energetic.

Dermatochalasis Surgery

Excess or sagging skin on the lower eyelid can result in bags that make your eyes look older and tired. Once again, genetics or dermatochalasis can play a role in the formation of excess skin under the eye, but aging is also a key factor. A lower blepharoplasty can be used to remove excess skin and fat below the eyes to diminish bags. A small incision at the lash line or inside the lower lid can be used to access the excess skin for removal.

Excess eyelid skin removal surgery can refresh the appearance of the eyes. If you have excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids, blepharoplasty can make a dramatic difference. Dr. Lesley Rabach at LM Medical NYC is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in eyelid lift surgeries for eye rejuvenation.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
