Benefits of NaturaLook™ Blepharoplasty for New York Residents

Our eyes are the focal point of our face, revealing our emotions, our health, and unfortunately our age. Studies show that we spend 80% of our time looking at other people’s eyes when we are talking to them.  In some cases, accelerated aging in the eye area can make us look older than we are—or than we feel.

Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty surgery or double eyelid surgery, NYC area men and women have been helped by addressing some of the most common signs of aging that appear around the eyes:

  • Loose and droopy excess skin on the upper lids that make eyes look hooded, fatigued, or even sad
  • Fine lines and wrinkles on the lower eyelid and deeper creases on the outermost corners of the eyes that age a person's facial appearance
  • Puffy bags on the lower eyelids that can make a person look angry or tired
  • Dark circles on the innermost corners or lower eyelids that create a tired, angry, or ill appearance

What To Expect From Eyelid Surgery

Upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or a combined upper and lower eyelid surgery is typically performed under local or monitored anesthesia, which is administered in a boutique operating room certified by either the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) or the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). The blepharoplasty can also be performed under general anesthesia if the patient requests it, or if the surgery is combined with other procedures. Eyelid surgery lasts one to two hours, depending on the surgical complexity.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Alizadeh performs upper blepharoplasty by creating a single laser-focused incision in the natural crease of the upper eyelid, which eventually creates a well-concealed scar. He then excises any redundant skin, but preserves the strip of muscle, called the orbicularis oculi, to maintain the youthful fullness in the upper eyelid. If needed, he reduces or repositions fat to create a fresh fold along the uppermost portion of the eye (known as double eyelid surgery) then closes each incision with absorbable sutures or biological glues.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Alizadeh performs lower blepharoplasty by creating a small incision either inside the lower eyelid, called a transconjunctival approach, or along the lash line of the lower lid, a subcilliary incision. He then tightens the ligaments of the lower lid while making sure to reposition the  fat, and redrapes the lower lid skin as necessary, ensuring a youthful and lasting result. Biological glues or absorbable sutures are used to close the incisions.

What Complements Eyelid Surgery?

Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Alizadeh may recommend combining procedures and treatments to complement your blepharoplasty results:

  • Laser skin resurfacing to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dermal fillers 
  • NaturaGlow™ Fat Transfer to fill hollows or deep grooves
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic to minimize dynamic wrinkles in the eye area 
  • Another facial plastic surgery option, the NaturaBrow™ Brow Lift, can elevate a heavy forehead above the eyelids.

What To Expect From Recovery

Following eyelid surgery, most patients find that they need to take approximately one week off from work to allow any bruising or swelling in the eye area to subside. You will need to sleep on your back for one to two weeks and avoid exercise and sun exposure for three to four weeks following your procedure. Dr. Alizadeh and his staff will give you very specific pre- and post-operative instructions, and they will be available throughout the recovery period should any concerns arise.
