Eyelid surgery, technically known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure to remove fat and excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can correct the sagging of the upper eyelids and the bags of the lower ones, characteristics that make us look older and more tired than we are, and that, in some cases, can interfere with vision. However, blepharoplasty does not remove “crow’s feet” or other wrinkles or drooping eyebrows. It can be performed in isolation or together with other cosmetic surgeries of the face, such as the cervicofacial lift or the forehead lift. Suppose you are considering the possibility of undergoing a blepharoplasty NYC. In that case, you will obtain necessary information about the surgery, when it is indicated, how it is done, and what results can be expected. However, all your questions can’t be answered since they largely depend on personal factors and the preferences of the plastic surgeon. If you do not understand something, ask your plastic surgeon.

Who is the ideal candidate for blepharoplasty?
The ideal candidates to undergo blepharoplasty are those who seek improvement, and not absolute perfection, in their appearance. If you are in good general health, have psychological stability, and are realistic in your expectations, you will be the right candidate. Generally, the patients are 35 years or older, but in some cases, with a family tendency to have bags, the patients are younger. Blepharoplasty will improve your appearance and self-confidence, but it will not make us look like someone else or treat us differently. Before deciding whether to have a blepharoplasty think about what you want to achieve and discuss it with your plastic surgeon.
