Blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that modifies the eyelids by removing or repositioning excess tissue. Excess fat may accumulate above and below the eyelids causing upper eye lid droop, under eye bags, and/or sagging eyebrows. Not only can these physical changes make us look significantly older, but they can also impair our peripheral vision and even result in vision complications such as astigmatism. Many people seek to correct these signs of aging not only for aesthetic reasons, but to improve the quality of their vision. If you have excess skin, muscle laxity or fat deposits, blepharoplasty can resolve the issue and provide beautiful results with little downtime.
Blepharoplasty is a very effective way of improving the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. Dr. Ariel Ostad performs this procedure at his accredited onsite surgical facility. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia and has minimal downtime. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery takes one hour, and lower eye blepharoplasty can take one to two hours. Patients return for suture removal in five days, most patients return to work in two days. Patients see results when the sutures are removed, and it improves over the next few weeks as the minor swelling subsides. Patients are thrilled with the outcome, and the results last for years.
Dr. Ariel Ostad performs all surgical procedures at his New York City office, which is a fully certified operating facility by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF).
