Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
At Our Center’s

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can help you look younger and more energized by eliminating eye bags and tightening saggy eyelids. Drooping or puffy eyelids can make you appear tired, depressed and older. In some cases drooping eyelids can even impair your vision.

Board-certified New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Zubowski will make tiny incisions along the natural lines around your eyes to remove the excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Under his skilled hands, this procedure often leaves no visible scars at all. After surgery, you may experience swelling for several days, but you can usually return to work within a week.

There are specific types of eyelid surgery from double eyelid surgery, ptosis surgery, lower eyelid surgery, oculoplastic surgery, transconjunctival blepharoplasty to laser blepharoplasty.

Double Eyelid Surgery

Double eyelid surgery, also known as East Asian blepharoplasty or Asian eyelid surgery, is a type of cosmetic eyelid surgery where the skin around the eye is reshaped. The purpose of double eyelid surgery is to create an upper-lid crease.

Ptosis Surgery

Ptosis is defined as drooping of the upper lid, partly covering the pupil. Ptosis causes a tired, sleepy appearance and reduces vision. Ptosis surgery is used to provide a more youthful, vibrant appearance as well as to improve your sight. Some patients with ptosis also have excess skin and fat in the upper lid, which can be corrected at the time of their procedure.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Many people have baggy and puffy lower eyelids. Lower eyelid surgery (removal of excess eyelid skin) can drastically minimize the appearance of baggy and puffy lower eyelids. The cause of baggy and puffy lower eyelids is due to a combination of herniating fat, excessive skin, and edema (water retention).

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery is used to correct eyelid droop and improve your overall facial appearance.

Oculoplastic Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery (otoplasty) involves both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures on the eyelids, orbit (bones and anatomic structures behind the eyeball) and lacrimal (tear drain) system. Typical eyelid disorders treated by oculoplastic surgery include ptosis (drooping eyelids), congenital malformations, trauma (lacerations), tumors (skin cancer), malpositions such as entropion (turned-in eyelid), ectropion (turned- out eyelid), styes (chalazia), blepharospasm and eyelash abnormalities.

Lower Eyelid

Lower eyelid suspension surgery (canthopexy or tarsorrhaphy) can fix eyelids that droop or sag due to sun damage, prior eyelid surgery, aging, or paralysis. Lower eyelid suspension surgery will tighten and possibly elevate the lower lids. The perfect candidate for lower eyelid suspension surgery (canthopexy or tarsorrhaphy) shows excessive, sagging, or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin, an individual with eyelids that droop because of prior eyelid surgery, aging, or paralysis, and/or someone with puffy pouches of fat in the lower lids that create a tired or aged appearance. The intended results of lower eyelid suspension surgery (canthopexy or tarsorrhaphy) include tightening and possible elevation of the lower lids, reduction of the symptoms from excessive conjunctival and corneal exposure (such as weeping, inflammation, irritation, redness, and blurring of vision), and improved appearance of the lower eyelids and eyes.

Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty

Transconjunctival blepharoplasty (the concept of operating on the lower eyelid from the inside of the lid) is a gentle, precise, safe and tissue-sparing procedure for eyelid rejuvenation. Patients contemplating eyelid surgery for eye bags and lower eyelid laxity should consider the associated benefits, as the transconjunctival blepharoplasty approach offers several aesthetic and long-term functional advantages compared to traditional techniques. A ‘transconjunctival’ approach (through the conjunctiva) immediately provides access to the deep layers without violating the important central layers of the eyelid. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty (tissue-sparing lower blepharoplasty, muscle-conserving blepharoplasty, or no-touch blepharoplasty) is the concept of leaving the structural middle-layer of the eyelid intact. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is the key-component in a fully customizable modular approach to aesthetic and functional eyelid surgery. It offers the best method for tailor-made, deep-layer fat manipulation, such as fat removal or fat repositioning. Recovery after transconjunctival blepharoplasty is shorter than traditional eyelid surgery (usually only a few days) and patients generally experience limited bruising and swelling. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty allows a scar-free rejuvenation of the lower lid and has met with a high degree of patient satisfaction. The risk of complications from this procedure is quite low.
