The skin surrounding the eyes is the thinnest and most delicate on the body. The constant movement of the eye, exposure to UV rays, aging and other factors can cause lines, wrinkles, stretching and sagging on the upper (and lower) eyelids. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can remove excess skin and tighten the upper eyelids for a rejuvenated appearance. Our team at LM Medical NYC offers upper blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, at our state-of-the-art facility in Manhattan.
Dr. Lesley Rabach is one of the best facial plastic surgeons in NYC and focuses her expertise on only the face. To transform the upper eyelids, she utilizes her extensive surgical skills and artistic talent to reshape the upper eyelid to portray vibrant, youthful eyes. An upper blepharoplasty can open and reshape the eyes, creating the energetic, beautiful appearance desired.
Benefits of Upper Eyelid Lift Surgery
When the skin on the upper eyelid loosens, sags and wrinkles, it can create a hooded appearance. The eyelid crease can disappear, and the eyes appear smaller in size. An upper eyelid lift surgery can remove the excess skin and fat, tightening the tissue to create a more youthful, open appearance to the eye. Once an upper blepharoplasty has been performed, the eyes look wider and more energetic with a youthful, natural appearance.
Both upper and lower blepharoplasty can be performed separately or together, depending on the patient. Some patients will pair an upper eyelid lift with a brow lift to rejuvenate the entire upper face. The incisions are carefully hidden for a discreet, natural appearance with little to no visible scars.
If you have upper eyelids that droop or sag, making you look older and tired, contact us at LM Medical NYC. We can schedule an eyelid lift consultation with Dr. Lesley to discuss upper blepharoplasty at our upscale clinic in Greenwich Village.
