Open Your Eyes to a Brighter You

Nothing ages a person’s appearance more than hooded upper eyelids and bags under the eyes. As we grow older, the muscles around the eyes start to weaken, causing the skin to sag. 

This can give the face a perpetually tired and older-looking appearance. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a cosmetic surgical procedure to correct puffy, droopy, or wrinkled upper and lower eyelids to restore a more youthful appearance to the eyes and the face.

Dr. Peck is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has many years of experience serving the greater New Jersey area in a wide range of plastic surgery procedures, and who is known for his commitment to surgical excellence.

Functional Reasons for Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery can take years off a man or woman’s appearance, but this procedure is also performed for non-cosmetic reasons. Loose, sagging skin in the upper eyelids can create folds, affect the natural contours of the upper eyelid, and impair a person’s vision. Blepharoplasty may become a medical necessity, particularly in older patients.

If excess skin on the upper eyelids is blocking your field of vision, your medical insurance may cover the eyelid surgery procedure. Check with your insurance provider to find out if you are covered. Our office can assist you with your medical insurance claim.

How It Works

Although eyelid surgery is sometimes called an “eyelift,” this is a misnomer, as the eyelid is not actually lifted during surgery.

In upper eyelid surgery, incisions are made to allow for removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue. Fine sutures are then used to bring the skin together and create an eyelid crease.

In lower eyelid surgery, an incision is made either just below the lower lash line or on the inside of the lower lid (transconjunctival approach).

The latter approach leaves no visible incisions. Fat can be removed or added to improve the contour of the eyelids. The lid may need to be tightened to eliminate sagging. This procedure may be combined with laser resurfacing to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the texture of the skin.

What to Expect with Eyelid Surgery

If you have excess skin on your upper eyelids that is obstructing your vision, you may be eligible for coverage of the eyelid surgery procedure through your medical insurance. You should check with your insurance provider to see if you are covered.

After the surgery, you may experience mild to moderate pain and discomfort for 1 to 3 days, which can be managed with prescription or over-the-counter medication. Sutures are typically removed 4 to 6 days after the surgery. 

The results of the procedure can last for 5 to 10 years or more. If you need help with your medical insurance claim, our office can assist you.
