“I felt Dr. Pearlman really knows what he is doing. He listened to what I didn't like and told me he would have no problem correcting it. (I had fat in my upper eyelid that the last surgeon did not take out). He did a great job. I hardly swelled up after the surgery. The office is very clean and always made sure your body was clean whenever they worked on you. The staff was so nice. Everyone made you feel so comfortable there. I would recommend Dr. Pearlman to anyone! Atmosphere was very relaxing. Loved them playing Marvin Gaye through the surgery.”

What is blepharoplasty?

The eyes are often the first feature noticed on our face, and they are also one of the first areas that truly reflect our age. They say, “the eyes are the window to the soul” but what if your eyes are revealing the wrong message? We blink thousands of times a day. As we get older, the skin and muscles surrounding our eyelids begin to loosen and sag.

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can effectively restore a youthful look to your eyes and improve the overall attractiveness of your face. If you are bothered by eyes that appear to be aging, it’s time to explore the options of blepharoplasty in NYC with Dr. Steven Pearlman.

What are some of the benefits of blepharoplasty?

  • Provides a more youthful, rested and alert appearance
  • Restores a sense of vibrancy and self-confidence
  • May restore impaired vision by reducing eyelid hooding

Who makes the best blepharoplasty candidates?

Anyone who is bothered by sagging eyelids, puffy eyes, discoloration or undereye bags may be an excellent candidate for a blepharoplasty. Dr. Pearlman suggests that patients be in good mental and physical health, with no major medical issues that might interfere with surgery or its recovery. Clients should be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for improvement, based on their confidential NYC consultation.

Does Dr. Pearlman ever combine procedures?

Dr. Pearlman's blepharoplasty in New York is often combined with other facial cosmetic procedures for more comprehensive changes. Blepharoplasty treats "tired eyes," while a brow lift is more for droopy eyebrows or an "angry" look. We also combine blepharoplasty with facial peels or lasers, brow lift and facelift surgery.

FAQs Blepharoplasty

    What is the recovery time for blepharoplasty?

    In most instances, patients can return to work within 7 to 10 days.

    How long do the results last?

    The results of blepharoplasty last for many years. The tissues around the eyes will continue to age naturally over time.

    Will scarring be noticeable after surgery?

    Incisions are made in the natural creases of the eyelids and sometimes completely hidden inside the lower eyelid to make scarring as inconspicuous as possible.

    How soon after surgery may contact lenses be worn?

    Most individuals can wear contact lenses about one to two weeks after surgery is performed.

    What is the best age to undergo an eyelid lift?

    Although most individuals are in their 40s and beyond when they undergo eyelid surgery, some people may decide to undergo the procedure in their 30s and occasionally even in their 20s.

    What is the cost of eyelid surgery?

    Because eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper lids, the lower lids, or both at the same time, the cost of the procedure will vary from patient to patient. If additional treatments such as dermal fillers or laser therapy are employed, then the costs will also naturally be affected. Dr. Pearlman will provide you with a full, detailed quote during your private NYC consultation. We will also assist you with securing financing from a variety of reputable healthcare lenders.
