Westchester Blepharoplasty by Dr. Kim

The Eye Lift Procedure

You've heard the English proverb, "Your eyes are the window to your soul." That adage continues to endure because more than any facial feature, the eyes always hold a special beauty and allure, especially in revealing emotion. Unfortunately, loose "sagging" or "bulging" skin around the upper and/or lower eyelids, a commeyelifts, eyelid surgery can restore the natural contour of the upper and/or lower lids, resulting in a younger, more rested and alert appearance. Blepharoplasty (eyelift) can address many different issues including:

  • Puffiness in the upper eyelids created by excess fatty deposits.
  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds above the upper eyelid, sometimes even impairing vision.
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid.
  • Under eye bags.
  • Droopiness of the lower eyelid.

Eye Lift Q&A


What is a blepharoplasty procedure?
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift) is a surgical procedure that can improve an aged, tired, droopy or swollen appearance to the eyelids. Upper blepharoplasty can address sagging of the upper eyelids while lower blepharoplasty addresses under eye bags. An under eye blepharoplasty can also fix wrinkles or crepiness. Surgery may be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. During the procedure, excess fat and skin are removed and the underlying tissue is tightened, for a more youthful, rested eye appearance.


Who is a good candidate for a blepharoplasty?
Good candidates for blepharoplasty should be physically healthy, should not smoke, and should be realistic about their goals. A consultation with Dr. Kim is the best way to determine if blepharoplasty is right for you.


How is blepharoplasty surgery performed?
Dr. Kim performs eyelid surgery in Bellava’s Joint Commission-accredited surgical suite. The upper blepharoplasty procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, while the lower blepharoplasty usually requires general anesthesia.


What is recover like after blepharoplasty surgery?
The recovery period from blepharoplasty usually takes about 7 - 10 days following blepharoplasty surgery. Stitches from an upper blepharoplasty are usually removed after three to four days, while lower blepharoplasty procedures do not use stitches. Make-up can be worn after approximately 5 - 14 days to help conceal bruising.
