What is blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty in New Jersey, is one of the most common surgical procedures. This procedure 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 rejuvenative effect with relatively quick recovery with blepharoplasty in New Jersey.

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 surgery can be covered by your health insurance.

What is recovery like for surgery?

Eyelid surgery in New Jersey takes between 1 – 2 hours, and patients can go home afterwards. 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 are able to apply eye makeup to areas of their eyelid that had 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.

More FAQs

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.

When will I see results after the procedure?

You may experience mild redness and swelling around the incision sites after the surgery. 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 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.

    • Under-eye bags
    • Sagging skin under the eyes
