Blepharoplasty Eyelid Surgery & Endoscopic Browlift
Proudly serving New York City, Manhattan, Staten Island, Long Island & nearby areas of New York
Fresh, lively looking eyes reflect your youthful attitude. However, as we age, the expressiveness of our eyes is often eclipsed by drooping eyelids, puffy bags under our eyes, and heavy brows. Loss of fat in the face and sagging cheeks can result in creasing and dark shadows under your eyes, leaving them looking sunken and hollow. Other people experience heavy bags under their eyes because of a pronounced fat pocket that develops under each eye.
If you are experiencing any of these signs of aging, Dr. Miller and Dr. Heller may be able to create a treatment plan to restore your youthful appearance. Call (212) 661-2563 to arrange your consultation.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
An endoscopic brow lift has many benefits for our patients. This procedure can:
- Lift your brow into a higher, more youthful position
- Reduce the heaviness of the outer eyelid
- Reduce the skin that needs to be removed in upper eyelid surgery
During an endoscopic brow lift, the surgeon will make small incisions behind your hairline where an endoscope is inserted. The surgeon releases your brow from its current position, then lifts and secures it for a more youthful appearance. The result is long lasting and natural with no incisions across the forehead.
This patient had endoscopic browlift and upper eyelid surgery. Note how the intense sagginess on the outer part of the eyelid was lifted with these procedures.
Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
An upper lid blepharoplasty rejuvenates your upper eyelids to provide a more open appearance. During the procedure, your surgeon will:
- Make an incision that will be concealed in the natural crease of your upper lid
- Remove excess skin from your upper lid
- Create natural looking contours with your lid
- Close the incision
This procedure leads to minimal discomfort in most patients and often results in only minor bruising and swelling during recovery.
Note the heavy upper lid skin before the procedure and the improved upper lid crease created after the surgery.
Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Lower lid blepharoplasty reduces the appearance of bags under your eyes. During this procedure, the surgeon will:
- Create a small incision inside the eyelid
- Remove fat from the fat pocket or "bag" under the eye
- In some cases, tighten the skin with a laser or remove unwanted skin
- Close the incision that is discreetly hidden on the inside of your eyelid
Most patients experience a small amount of swelling and bruising and can return to work within a week.
This patient had substantial under-eye bags that were effectively diminished.
Cheek Lift and Fat Injection
We can reverse the signs of aging with a threadlift to return your cheeks to a more youthful contour. We can also add fat in the groove beneath your eyes to correct the hollowed out look that often comes with age.
Surgeries are performed in our AAAHC certified surgery center, and patients can return home the same day.
As you recover, you can expect mild to moderate swelling and bruising in the surgical areas. Pain and discomfort are minimal. Many patients do not even take the prescribed pain medication. You can expect to return to work and most normal activities in about a week. You should avoid strenuous activities for a couple of weeks.
You will need to see your surgeon for two to three follow-up visits after your surgery to ensure that you are healing well and your results are as expected.
