Case #65 Details
At 39 years of age, this Long Island woman felt her eyes made her look tired, and older than she actually was. She wanted less heaviness of her upper lids.
We examined her at our Long Island Plastic Surgery office and noted that her blue eyes were somewhat hidden by the amount of her upper eyelid skin. That skin, especially to the side, gave almost an unhappy look to this very personable and happy young woman. We recommended an upper eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, in which the excess skin is removed, with the incision hidden in the natural crease of her eyelid.
Her surgery took about 1 hour to perform, using a sedative type of anesthesia. She was awake in the recovery room and left the office just a few hours after she came in. This patient jokes that she was riding around in her car on errands just a couple of days after surgery. The few sutures from her eyelids were removed less than a week after surgery.
In comparing her before and after photos you will see that she looks completely natural, just "more rested" and more youthful than before. And you can see home much her beautiful blue eyes shine through.
To learn more about eyelid rejuvenation on Long Island, give us a call at 631-424-3600. Plan to visit our plastic surgery office on East Main Street in Huntington soon.
Surgeon: Dr. James N. Romanelli
