Don’t look as young and refreshed as you feel? Choose eye lift treatment in Fort Lee NJ

Dr. Edmund Kwan awakens a tired, aged appearance with eye lift treatment techniques in Fort Lee NJ.

Take years off the appearance of your face and improve the comfort of your eyes and clarity of your vision with blepharoplasty. This eye lift treatment is available in Fort Lee, NJ at the office of Edmund Kwan, MD.  Trust the health and beauty of your eyes to Dr. Edmund Kwan, a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Kwan has a diverse client base, so he’s also experienced and adept at offering “Asian blepharoplasty” or “double-eyelid surgery.”

Open your eyes to blepharoplasty

Droopy eyelids or ptosis can be caused by congenital and neurologic conditions; however, it’s most commonly associated with aging. Gradually, the tendon attached to the levator muscle that lifts your eyelid stretches. As the muscle stretches, the lid falls. Gradual changes also occur to how fat is distributed. These changes can result in excess padding over or under the eyelids, sagging eyebrows, and under-eye bags. Your eye area may make you look older than you are and more tired than you feel.

As upsetting as cosmetic changes can be, saggy tissues also interfere with peripheral vision. If you have severe ptosis, it can be difficult to open your eyes. Brows may need to be manipulated to keep the eyes open. Sometimes, patients may manually lift their eyes with their fingers, just so they can see! Many of Edmund Kwan, MD’s patients have experienced surprising effects from the blepharoplasty procedure. They no longer find themselves compulsively rubbing their heavy and weary eyes. They’re experiencing a lot more comfort and look as vibrant and youthful as they feel.

“Blepharoplasty,” combines “blepharo” (for eyelid) and “plasty” (for surgical repair). If, following a consultation and thorough examination, Dr. Kwan determines blepharoplasty is the best way to treat ptosis or related conditions, it may be recommended that smoking or the use of some medications and herbal supplements be discontinued. These products can delay healing and increase your risk of bleeding. You’ll also need to arrange a ride to pick you up from our office, an AAAASF-certified ambulatory surgery facility, following the procedure.

  • During the procedure, medications will be administered to numb the treatment area, and possibly to help you relax.
  • Kwan removes excess skin, fat, and muscle along the fold of the eyelid.
  • Incisions are closed.
  • Excess is removed along the natural crease or inside of the lid for the lower eyelids.
  • Additional procedures, such as a brow lift or skin resurfacing, may be performed at the same time as the blepharoplasty procedure.
  • Once respective incision sites are closed, you’ll be monitored by our staff at the office.

It’s common for you to experience mild redness, puffiness, tenderness, bruising, sensitivity to light, and watery eyes. These side effects are typically temporary, and after-care can aid with healing and managing symptoms. It’s generally suggested to avoid activities that strain your eyes, including working at a computer or watching television. Apply drops and ointments as directed and pain relievers may be prescribed. A follow-up appointment is scheduled around five days after surgery to remove stitches.

A note on Asian blepharoplasty

Image of a Young Lady ready to face Asian blepharoplasty treatment

Patients of Asian descent may wish to have a pretarsal crease or fold placed on the upper eyelid. This approach can create a more “awake” and “bright-eyed” look. They may request a crease like their Asian friends who were born with such a fold. Some patients may also wish to improve a puffy or tired appearance related to a fatty upper eyelid. By removing excess and creating a natural-looking crease, patients have also found it’s easier to enhance their eyes with makeup products such as eyeliner. They may have less reliance on cosmetics, because their eyes appear larger and rejuvenated without the assistance of such products. Dr. Kwan understands that every patient’s goals are different. He creates the youthful and refreshed look that you desire, while preserving your ethnicity.

Additional techniques involve injecting fat into areas that have succumbed to volume loss, improving the “hollowed eyes” often caused by sunken upper lids. The results from these procedures can last a lifetime. Take care to protect this investment in your health and appearance from damaging ultraviolet light and other environmental factors that irritate the area and hasten the effects of aging. There is no time like the present to explore your answer to looking (and even seeing!) your best. Call 201 947 3636 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Kwan at his New Jersey office.

  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - reviews by Tina R
    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)

    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was involved in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and professionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anesthesiologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews T. Cannon
    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
