What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is one of the most common surgical procedures. Blepharoplasty in Somerset County, New Jersey, removes unwanted fat deposits and sagging skin from around the eyelids, thereby reversing the signs of aging. Younger patients can also opt for eyelid surgeries to reduce puffiness around the eyes.

Dr. Ramesh carefully examines your eyes and only recommends surgeries if nonsurgical options, such as Botox, laser skin resurfacing, and Dysport, are deemed unsuitable.

Have droopy eyelids?

The eyes are the first feature that others notice about you and convey a multitude of emotions and expressions. Droopy, saggy, or baggy eyelids can create the illusion of looking sad, tired, worried, or even angry, and addressing the eyelids provides a powerful rejuvenating effect with relatively quick recovery with blepharoplasty.

In some cases, droopy eyelids can be so severe that the vision is affected. Patients may have difficulty driving, reading, or simply getting around as the ability to look up is limited. In many cases, this eyelid surgery in Somerset County, New Jersey, can be covered by your health insurance.

I visited Dr Ramesh due to complications from a blepheroplasty performed by another surgeon. He was so nice, compassionate, gentle, and knowledgeable. He pinpointed what the issue was – which was something very obscure – and treated appropriately. I highly recommend him.

How is blepharoplasty performed?

What is recovery like for eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery in Somerset County, New Jersey takes between 1 – 2 hours, and patients can go home afterward. Usually, patients have bruising and swelling around the eyes for 1 – 2 weeks, and pain is minimal. Most patients are ready for social events in 2-4 weeks, and “wedding-ready” by 3 months. Strenuous activities must be limited for the first week, and patients may return to normal exercise and other activities after 7 days.

No matter the approach, our goal is for you to look more youthful and refreshed, without any appearance of having had surgery. Eyelid surgery, upper or lower, generally does not cause visible scarring after surgical healing is complete. Complications after surgery are extremely rare, and patients are typically very satisfied after the procedure.

Most patients report better vision leading to improved driving, reading, or simply getting around, as they can see through more open eyes. Women can apply eye makeup to areas of their eyelids that have been covered by excess skin for years. Men and women often report increased confidence and self-esteem as they feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle their day.

  • Sagging skin under the eyes
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Hooding of eyelids due to excess skin
  • Lower eyelid hollowing and gauntness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes

Can eyelid surgery improve my vision if I have severe drooping eyelids?

Yes, eyelid surgery in Somerset County, New Jersey, can often improve vision in cases where severe drooping eyelids obstruct your line of sight. This procedure can lift the eyelids, allowing you to see more clearly.

Will I experience discomfort during and after blepharoplasty?

Most patients report minimal pain or discomfort during eyelid surgery. Dr. Ramesh performs eyelid surgery under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, so there’s no pain. Furthermore, he will provide pain management instructions and prescribe medication to ensure a comfortable recovery.

Will there be scars after eyelid surgery?

All surgeries have the possibility of scars. However, Dr. Ramesh carefully places the incisions along your natural creases and folds, making them imperceptible to the naked eye. For lower eyelid surgeries, Dr. Ramesh makes incisions on the inside of the eyes, so there are no visible scars.

Are there any risks or potential complications associated with blepharoplasty?

Like any surgical procedure, blepharoplasty in Somerset County, New Jersey, carries some risks, such as infection, scarring, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. However, complications are relatively rare, and Dr. Ramesh takes precautions to minimize them. Please follow all post-operative care instructions to reduce the risk further.

How soon can I return to my regular activities and work after eyelid surgery?

The recovery time varies from person to person but is typically relatively short. Most patients can resume light activities and work within a week to 10 days, although strenuous exercises and heavy lifting should be avoided for a few weeks to ensure a smooth recovery process.

When will I see the results after blepharoplasty?

You may experience mild redness and swelling around the incision sites after blepharoplasty. However, the side effects will gradually dissipate over several weeks. The results of your blepharoplasty will be completely evident after about six weeks, making your eyes look brighter and more alert after your blepharoplasty in Somerset County, New Jersey.

How long will the eyelid surgery results last?

Eyelid surgeries reverse the signs of aging around your eyes, but they don’t stop the aging process. Generally speaking, the results from eyelid surgeries last for 10 to 15 years, making you look at least a decade younger. However, the longevity of your results also depends on your overall health, genes, and skincare.
