A person's eyes are a beautiful aspect of the face that deserve to be seen, but sometimes an excess of skin on top or around the eyes can render an unflattering facial appearance. Huntington, NY plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli and John Layliev perform eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) to lift and tighten the lower, upper, and/or all four eyelids, creating a younger and awakened facial appearance. So many men and women have eyelid surgery at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery on Long Island to correct sagging skin, which assists with both function and appearance. Whether upper, lower, or all four, eyelid surgery creates a softer, younger appearance and can produce subtle yet noticeable improvements. Contact our office in Huntington, NY to learn more.
Ideal Candidates for Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty is a facial cosmetic enhancement that is popular among both men and women. During the initial consult, treatment options will be provided by our surgical team based on your condition that needs to be corrected. Most often, ideal candidates are impaired by excess, sagging skin and folds on the upper eyelid or puffy skin just under the bottom eyelid. These irregularities can cause function problems that can get in the way of everyday activities. For a more awake facial appearance, blepharoplasty may be the appropriate treatment for you. If you have excess, hanging skin on the upper eyelid or bulges and puffiness under the eyes, blepharoplasty can repair this to provide you with a softer appearance.

Surgical Technique for Blepharoplasty
During eyelid surgery, depending on the nature of the surgery, some form of anesthesia will be used. This cosmetic procedure may be done on the top eyelid by itself, on the bottom portion, or a blend of both treatments at once.
Upper eyelid surgery assists in reducing the excess of skin that impairs vision and attains a more flattering look. the incision point is often placed along the natural crease to remove skin and tissue.
Lower blepharoplasty is performed to improve bulging, bloated skin underneath the lower lid. In most cases, an incision is made below the lash line to surgically remove fat, and the skin is gently lifted to create a flatter, smoother look. Sometimes, a nonsurgical laser procedure may be performed to help with discoloration, while injectable fillers can be used for additional volume and smoothness if needed.
Combines both the upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures. It will utilize the techniques describes above to create a younger-looking profile to the eyes. Specific details of this method can be discussed during your initial consultation, as it may not be right for everyone.
What to Expect from Blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery can take up to two hours depending on whether both eyes, one, or all four are treated. After surgery, you should allow several days to rest. Cold compressions can assist in reducing swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The outcomes from eyelid surgery may last a decade or longer and even though the results are long lasting, aging does not stop. To continue to enhance the surgical outcomes, nonsurgical treatments at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery such as injections, fillers, and lasers can be added to create a glowing appearance.
