Manhattan Plastic Surgeons Highlight the Various Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Stafford R. Broumand and Dr. Daniel Y. Maman Discuss the Numerous Aesthetic Enhancements That Can Be Made to the Eye Region Through Blepharoplasty

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2015) - As a focal point of the face, the eyes can reveal a lot about a person, states New York City plastic surgeon Stafford R. Broumand, MD. For instance, dark circles under the eyes are often a sign of fatigue, puffiness can be evidence of sadness, wrinkles and/or sagging skin may be an indication of age, and so on and so forth. Unfortunately, these revelations about one's physical and/or emotional state are not always desired, and in some cases, they are simply untrue. For individuals who are continually told they look tired, angry, older, and/or something different than they actually are or feel, Dr. Broumand says blepharoplasty may be an excellent cosmetic surgical option.

Also known as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift, blepharoplasty can be performed to achieve a more rested, rejuvenated appearance for both men and women. At their Manhattan-based practice, Dr. Broumand and his partner, Dr. Daniel Y. Maman, offer upper eyelid surgery, lower blepharoplasty, or a combination of the two techniques that can be customized to help:

  • Smooth wrinkled and/or sagging skin of the upper and lower eyelids
  • Decrease bagginess and puffiness in the eye region
  • Remove fat pockets in the upper and lower eyelids
  • Excise hanging, redundant skin in the eye region
  • Diminish dark circles and bags underneath the eyes

In addition to its cosmetic benefits, Dr. Maman explains that blepharoplasty can also be medically advantageous as the procedure can be performed to remove excess, drooping skin that may be partly or significantly obstructing one's field of vision. Furthermore, he notes that tear trough deformities along the nasojugal groove can generally be corrected at the time of a lower lid blepharoplasty for qualified candidates.

Ultimately, regardless of the specific concerns being addressed with blepharoplasty, Dr. Broumand emphasizes that the personality and character of the patient's eyes should not change. When performed by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, he says eyelid surgery can noticeably improve a person's appearance without making him or her look different.
