Eyelid Lift New Jersey

Learn about Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) in New Jersey

Upper Eyelids

Your eyes receive more attention day in and day out than any other feature, which is why blepharoplasty, more commonly known as an eyelid lift, is such a frequently selected procedure by both men and women. The drooping of upper eyelids can result in a tired, sad look. In extreme cases, eyelid drooping can even obstruct a patient’s vision. During an eyelid lift, the upper blepharoplasty incision is made in the eyelid fold, rendering it nearly invisible, yet dramatically restoring eyelids to a more youthful state. Recovery is usually complete in several days, and, if the patient desires, the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia alone.

Lower Eyelids

Fat pads and/or dark circles around the lower eyelids can age even a young face. Sagging lower eyelids result from aging as well as genetics, making the eyelid lift procedure popular with men and women of all ages. A surgical procedure called “trans-conjunctival blepharoplasty” employs invisible incisions made inside the lower eyelid. A lower blepharoplasty will reduce the appearance of age and tiredness, removing dark circles and fat pads, which detract from your appearance. The results are dramatic. At Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey we use a gentle surgical technique with the addition of herbal remedies, to reduce swelling and bruising. Our patients usually return to their normal routine within three to four days.

What to expect from an eyelid lift with Dr. Kevin Nini in New Jersey?

An eyelid lift goes beyond mere aesthetic enhancement. It symbolizes a rejuvenated perspective, a celebration of one’s enduring allure as life unfolds. When executed with precision, as by esteemed professionals like Dr. Kevin Nini, it revitalizes and brightens the eyes without changing the inherent spirit reflected in one’s gaze.

 Here are the benefits of undergoing an upper or lower eyelid lift at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey:

  • Rejuvenated Appearance: One of the most immediate and noticeable benefits is the refreshed and alert look post-procedure. Tired, droopy eyes that once gave an appearance of fatigue, even with ample rest, are revitalized, giving you a more youthful and energetic expression.
  • Reduction of Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Beyond just lifting the eyelids, the procedure can also diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, often referred to as crow’s feet.
  • Minimized Under-Eye Bags: A lower eyelid lift addresses and reduces the puffiness or under-eye bags that can make one appear older or perpetually tired.

Blepharoplasty Frequently Asked Questions

The first day or so after eyelid lift surgery your vision may be slightly blurry, and this is usually due to the protective ointment the doctor puts in your eyes during and after the procedure. You should expect some minor discomfort which can be alleviated with pain medication. Most of the swelling or bruising from the procedure will resolve within the first few days. The use of eye makeup should be avoided for at least a week after blepharoplasty and contact lenses should not be worn for about 2 to 3 weeks.

Most patients feel well enough to begin watching TV or reading after just a few days. We recommend up to a week of rest before returning to work. Light exercise and more moderate workouts can be considered after 3-4 weeks. Always consult with your physician before starting an exercise program, as blepharoplasty recovery times vary per patient.
