What is an eyelid lift and which NYC area residents are good candidates for this surgery?

Patients of all ages who are showing signs of aging in their eyes may benefit from blepharoplasty. This procedure is also known as an eyelid lift. NYC patients can visit Dr. Edmund Kwan, M.D. for a consultation appointment and thorough examination to determine if eyelid surgery is right for them.

Eyelid Lift Surgery from Dr. Edmund Kwan

During an eyelid lift procedure, excess skin and fat is removed from upper and lower eyelids. Muscle can also be tightened to give the upper portion of the face a more youthful, rested appearance. The surgery is completed as an outpatient treatment and patients are to arrange transportation home. It is done under twilight anesthesia. After this procedure, patients enjoy compliments from others regarding their refreshed look and younger appearance. The procedure is done in a way that provides natural, beautiful results, and many friends and family are not aware that work has been done unless the patient informs them.

Patients must be determined to be a viable candidate for an eyelid lift before undergoing the procedure. In most cases, patients are older and want to address sagging eyelid skin that may even be draping over the eye. Patients with bags underneath the eyes can also benefit from an eyelid lift to enhance the area aesthetically, and wrinkles such as crow’s feet can be reduced.

Blepharoplasty treatment is beneficial in both physical and emotional aspects. While it can reduce the signs of aging and address tired-looking eyes, it can also be a great way to boost one’s self-esteem and confidence. Patients who have been unhappy with the way they look will enjoy their brand new appearance and the benefits of happiness with their new quality of life!

If you are a resident in the New York City area and you have been considering plastic surgery to improve the appearance of your face and eyes, now is the time to contact Dr. Edmund Kwan to schedule your initial examination. During this visit, you can consult with him regarding your concerns and find a viable solution to the signs of aging. His practice offers a variety of plastic surgery procedures to assist patients in improving their appearance and their self-confidence with a more youthful look!
