Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) at Our Uptown Manhattan Practice in New York City
Excess skin on the eyelids and fatty deposits around the eyes, especially ones that form "bags" under the eyes, can cause you to look tired, angry, and even older than you are. In the fast-paced world of New York City, you need to appear to be on your game. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can help rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes. At his Uptown Manhattan cosmetic surgery office, Dr. Craig Foster skillfully performs eyelid surgery to help his patients not only look better, but also see better. Dr Foster offers several eyelid surgery options at his Upper East Side practice, including:
If you have both excess skin causing drooping or saggy eyelids and fatty deposits causing bags under your eyes, a full blepharoplasty performed by our double-board-certified New York plastic surgeon will most likely be the best solution for you. During eyelid surgery, Dr. Foster will trim the excess skin from the upper eyelid and remove the fatty deposits from beneath the eyes. For comprehensive rejuvenation, patients at our Manhattan practice have combined their eyelid surgery with other facial procedures, including a brow lift, a facelift, BOTOX® injections, or facial fat transfers.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
If your primary issue is the appearance or vision obstruction of a sagging eyelid, upper eyelid surgery may best benefit you. Many patients at our New York practice choose an upper blepharoplasty instead of a full eyelid surgery procedure.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
However, if drooping eyelids are not an issue for you, but you are plagued with bags under your eyes, lower eyelid surgery would better meet your needs. Our Manhattan-based surgeon can help you determine if lower blepharoplasty, rather than a full eyelid surgery, would be the best use of your cosmetic surgery dollar.
