Eyelid Surgery Q & A

What cosmetic concerns does eyelid surgery address? 

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can help correct sagging skin around your eyelids. Many people develop under-eye bags or drooping upper eyelids as they get older. Baggy eyes can make you seem tired, and in extreme cases, eyelid sagging may even affect your vision.

Dr. Craig Foster uses eyelid surgery to help correct these issues. He often combines eyelid surgery with a brow lift to rejuvenate the appearance of your entire eye area. Eyelid surgery can erase many signs of aging and make your eyes appear more youthful.

What happens during an eyelid surgery procedure?

During your consultation with Dr. Foster, he lets you know which procedures can help you meet your aesthetic goals. He may recommend upper eyelid surgery, which lifts sagging lids, or lower eyelid surgery, which helps remove the bags beneath your eyes.

These procedures can be performed at the same time or combined with a brow lift, facelift, or BOTOX® injections. All procedures take place at Dr. Foster's Uptown Manhattan surgical office. The office is discreet, comfortable, and staffed by medical experts, including a board-certified anesthesiologist.

During your procedure, Dr. Foster removes fatty deposits under your eyes or tightens up sagging lids. If you’ve chosen to combine eyelid surgery with other procedures, like a brow or facelift, he performs additional surgery to tighten or rejuvenate the skin around your forehead or cheeks.

Procedure times can vary. Before your procedure begins, Dr. Foster will explain how long your procedure will take, what kind of sedation you'll receive, and any side effects you may experience.

What kind of results can I expect? 

Eyelid surgery helps eliminate bagginess and lifts sagging lids. After the procedure, your eyes will look younger and more awake. Most patients find that eyelid surgery produces a remarkable improvement in their appearances. Many feel that the procedure makes their face look ten years younger.

In his practice, Dr. Foster often combines eyelid surgery with other facial rejuvenation procedures to produce even more striking results. He also offers several different high-end skin care products that can help maintain the results of your surgery.
