How the Eyelids
Change Over Time
The delicate skin and muscles around our eyes undergo various changes as we age. One of the most common age-related issues is the gradual loss of skin elasticity. Over time, the skin on the upper and lower eyelids can become loose and droop, creating a tired appearance. This drooping not only affects one’s aesthetic appeal but can also impede vision in severe cases, making simple tasks like reading or driving more challenging.
Another significant change that occurs with age is the accumulation of fat deposits in the eyelid area. These fat deposits can result in puffiness and bags under the eyes, contributing to a worn-out look. Additionally, the weakening of eyelid muscles may cause the eyelids to sag and lose their natural contour. Eyelid surgery can correct these cumulative effects of aging on the eyelids to restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance and improve vision. For lower and upper eyelid surgery in NYC, we have you covered.

Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the eyelids. It involves the removal of excess skin, muscle, or fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids to address issues like sagging, puffiness, and fine lines. The goal of blepharoplasty is to create a more youthful and refreshed look while potentially improving vision in cases where sagging eyelids obstruct the line of sight.
