Eyelid Lift New Jersey

Advanced Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) in New Brunswick, 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 the 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.

Blepharoplasty Frequently Asked Questions

The first day or so after eyelid lift surgery your vision may be slightly blurry, and 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.
