Patients dealing with a puffy under eye area can benefit from the remarkable results of a lower blepharoplasty in NYC. The under eye region is often the first area of the face where patients start to notice aging. Even in patients who get proper sleep and are full of energy, under-eye bags and dark circles are prominent issues. For patients that are struggling with these problems, a lower blepharoplasty, or lower eyelid surgery, can help. It is a simple, quick, and effective procedure that garners incredible results.

What is lower blepharoplasty?

Lower blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the lower eyelids by tightening muscles and removing excess skin. The treatment is able to correct issues such as:

  • Under eye bags
  • Sagging of the lower eyelids
  • Excess, bunching skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Hollow areas under the eyes

A lower eyelid blepharoplasty in NYC is a treatment option for both men and women and gives them a younger, more revitalized appearance that brightens up the entire face. 

Who is an ideal candidate for lower blepharoplasty?

Generally speaking, ideal candidates for lower blepharoplasty in NYC are patients who meet the following criteria:

  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Are non-smokers
  • Are not suffering from any medical eye conditions
  • Have healthy facial skin and muscle in the surrounding areas

Patients that are suffering from loose, sagging skin or puffy under eye bags can find relief in this treatment, as it mitigates and corrects these unwanted conditions. Patients walk away with a more youthful, refreshed aesthetic. 

As with any cosmetic procedure, it is vital that patients have realistic expectations for the outcome of the treatment. While it is effective at addressing concerns in the lower eyelid, it will not completely transform the face. 

What does the procedure entail? 

The first step in a lower blepharoplasty procedure is to make an incision behind the lower eyelid. Fat pads of the lower eyelid can be reached through this incision, allowing them to be sculpted into shape to reduce puffiness of the lower eyelid. Once the necessary changes have been made, the incisions are sealed shut with sutures and the patient is able to rest. 

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Mesa. He and his staff are simply great. He did a lower blepharoplasty and I could not be happier with the result. Thanks Dr. Mesa. You are the best.

What is the recovery process like?

In the first few days following the procedure, it is normal for patients to experience slight swelling and redness around the treatment area. These effects will fade away within the first week. An ointment will be prescribed in order to prevent the eyes from becoming overly dry. 

It typically takes several weeks for patients to fully recover from the procedure. The stitches will be removed within two days to a week. Patients should refrain from reading and watching television in the early phase of recovery, as the eyes are still weak and healing at this point.

Lower Blepharoplasty FAQs: 

Can lower blepharoplasty be combined with other procedures?

Yes, lower blepharoplasty can often be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as upper blepharoplasty, facelift, or brow lift, to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

How long do the results last after a lower blepharoplasty?

Lower blepharoplasty results are long-lasting, but they cannot stop the natural aging process. Over time, the aging of the skin and tissues will continue, albeit from a more youthful starting point.

Will there be visible scars after my lower blepharoplasty?

Incision placement and technique play a role in minimizing visible scars. Surgeons often make incisions in inconspicuous areas to reduce the visibility of scars, and they can provide advice on scar management.

Is a lower blepharoplasty painful?

Anesthesia is administered during the procedure to ensure that patients do not feel any pain. After the surgery, some discomfort, swelling, and bruising may occur, but pain is usually manageable with prescribed medications.
