The goal of any surgical procedure, and especially that of eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty, is to achieve a natural, well rested appearance without the stigmata of surgery. Sagging skin and wrinkles of the upper eyelid can give the appearance of fatigue and age well beyond one’s years. At The Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, New Jersey, upper eyelid surgery can restore youthful volume and smooth contours that are so vital to a natural and youthful look. Under local anesthesia and sedation (or general anesthesia) an incision is made across the eyelid within the eyelid crease to remove excess skin and fat and improve youthful contour. Sutures are placed which are then removed within several days, leaving an incision which is practically undetectable.
The techniques for lower eyelid surgery are varied and today are tailored to the patient’s specific anatomical changes. We all age somewhat differently; some with excess fat deposits resulting in puffiness to the lower lids, some with skin redundancy and others with skin wrinkles or dark circles. Still others have a combination of the above. Options for lower eyelid rejuvenation include removal or redistribution of fat deposits through concealed incisions within the eyelid, removal of skin redundancy by excising a small sliver of skin just below the eyelash margin, tightening lax muscle tissue and ironing out fine wrinkles with light laser or chemical peels. There are even non-surgical options for patients with minimal aging changes which include a combination of peels and fillers to tighten loose skin and fill tear trough depressions.
