Get over the statement-“I’m tired of people telling me, I have droopy eyelids”

In parties people generally have the habit of looking into each other and pin-pointing them on their dress, looks and face. The most common thing about, which people talk about, is the face. This is something, which annoys a person especially when all have same statements to make “you growing old and it can be easily noticed from your droopy eyelids”. Such a terrible feeling is it when all pass-on some bad comments right on your face!

So, if you are also one of them facing dropping eyelid (ptosis) and feeling neglected from the society then you need to go for blepharoplasty surgical procedure in NYC. Confused what is it? Then let me put your glance on the term 'blepharoplasty and on its procedure'.

What is blepharoplasty?Also known as eyelid surgery; it is a surgical procedure, which is used to remove the excessive skin and muscle on the upper and lower eyelid of the patient. However it depends on one’s condition and particular needs but it is very helpful in removing the droopy eyelids and bagginess of the eyes.

Before starting with the procedure, surgeon would give anesthesia to the patient, which would make him/her unconscious and won't let them feel the pain of the surgical procedure being undertaken. Once anesthesia is given comes the procedure of actual operation. During the procedure, the surgeon would make incisions on the patient's eyelids (whether upper or lower or both eyelids, depending on the discussion made between the patient and the surgeon before the treatment). The incision for upper eyelids is made in the creases of upper lids and for lower eyelids incision is made just below the lashes.

Besides the changes made in upper and lower eyelids, plastic surgeon would also extend incision to the laugh lines at the corner of the patient’s eyes, so as to reduce the appearance.

Once the incisions are made, surgeon would separate the skin from the tissues and remove the excessive fat in and around the eyes. Later when fat is being removed from the eyes, the surgeon would close the incisions using fine sutures.

However there are situations where a patient has fat under their eyes but do not have sagging skin, in that cases a different eyelid lift is done in New York, known as a "transconjunctival blepharoplasty”. This is basically performed on younger patients who have elastic skin and incisions are made inside the lower eyelid, since only fat is needed to be removed.
