This 34-year-old female patient came to Aristocrat’s Great Neck, Long Island office seeeking cosmetic surgery to improve the look of her face and open up her eyes. In the case of our patient, she was experiencing upper eyelid sagging, which can affect some people as they age. In her initial consultation with Dr. Tehrani, she was given a recommendation to undergo an upper blepharoplasty procedure.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a procedure that corrects drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle from the area. Some people are born with facial features that include hooded, heavy upper eyelids, and in some cases, eyelid surgery corrects overhanging upper lids that obscure vision.
Based on our patient’s condition, an upper blepharoplasty procedure under local anesthesia was performed by Dr. Tehrani, which helped to accentuate her eyes without changing the shape or expression of them, and to give her a more youthful and well-rested appearance.
If you think your eyes are being hidden under the hooding of heavy upper lids, consider an upper blepharoplasty to correct them. Dr. Kevin Tehrani has been in practice for many years, providing safe and natural-looking eyelid lifts for his patients in Manhattan, Long Island, and the entire New York metro area.
