Younger, Vibrant Eyes with Eyelid Surgery
Not only is eyelid surgery one of the most popular procedures offered by New York plastic surgeon Dr. Lloyd Landsman, it’s also one of the most rewarding. When expertly performed, eyelid surgery can dramatically transform aged or tired-looking eyes, which in turn enhances the overall facial appearance. Following eyelid surgery, Dr. Landsman’s Nassau and Suffolk County patients no longer feel self-conscious because of sagging eyelids or puffy under-eye bags. Instead, they look and feel younger and more confident than ever before.
Because the eyes are one of the most prominent features of the face, they should only be treated by an expert plastic surgeon. Dr. Landsman has over 25 years of experience in facial rejuvenation, including eyelid surgery. He has spent his career perfecting his surgical skills, which he combines with his natural artistic ability to create long-lasting and natural-looking results. He believes that the key to successful eyelid surgery is to make carefully planned changes to enhance the eyelids while still preserving each patient’s unique beauty.
Candidacy for Eyelid Surgery
Ideal candidates for eyelid surgery are those with:
- Loose, excess skin on the upper and/or lower eyelids
- Fatty deposits on the upper or lower eyelids
- Drooping skin on the upper lids that hangs so low that it interferes with the line of sight
- Puffiness or “bags” under the lower eyelids
Depending on your facial aging concerns, Dr. Landsman may recommend combining eyelid surgery with another procedure. The surgeon offers a range of facial rejuvenation options, both surgical and non-surgical, and will work closely with you to find the best treatment(s). For instance, if you are bothered by the appearance of sagging skin and creases on the cheeks and jawline, Dr. Landsman may recommend combining eyelid surgery with facelift. Dermal fillers can complement the rejuvenating effects of eyelid surgery by restoring volume to sunken cheeks while laser skin treatments such as photofacials and peels can improve the texture and tone of the skin. Fat grafting is often combined with eyelid surgery to restore volume to the cheek bone areas and the temporal areas
Eyelid Surgery Procedure Details
Eyelid surgery can treat the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Details of your procedure will depend on a variety of factors such as the amount of excess fat and skin on your eyelids, the condition of your eyelid muscles and the position of your eyebrows. During upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Landsman will create tiny incisions in the natural crease line of the upper lid. He will then remove excess skin and fat and reposition the muscles to create a firm and toned appearance. Loose skin will be excised while the remaining skin will be tightened.
When treating the lower eyelids, Dr. Landsman will create incisions underneath the lower lash line to conceal visible scarring. He will then reduce under-eye bags by removing excess fat and repositioning the muscle tissue. Fine wrinkles around the lower eyelids will also be smoothed out to create a softer appearance.
