Upper Eyelids

Nobody wants to look old and tired. However, drooping skin, heavy eyelids and puffiness can have precisely that effect.

With the help of a safe and simple procedure from the surgeons at Plastic Surgery of New York, you can soon find yourself looking well-rested and much more vibrant. Upper eyelid surgery has wonderful rejuvenating effects and is a simple outpatient procedure. When combined with an eyebrow lift, we can achieve truly outstanding natural-looking results. Discover our patient-driven and surgeon-guided approach.


  • Look fresh and vibrant with reduced puffiness and drooping around the eyelids
  • Simple and quick procedure
  • Scar naturally hidden in the fold of the eyelid
  • Recovery time of under a week
  • Brighter, more colorful looking eyes since more light reaching your eyes allows them to truly sparkle
  • Possibly less forehead wrinkles since some people try and compensate for drooping eyelids by raising their eyebrows and crinkling their brow

  • Besides cosmetic improvement, eyelid surgery can also address non-cosmetic issues such as hanging upper-eyelid skin so severe that it interferes with vision.



Small incisions are hidden in the upper eyelid crease, allowing for removal of all of the excess skin and the underlying fat pockets that cause the loose skin and puffy effect. This leaves a tighter, cleaner-looking eyelid with entirely hidden scars.


Eyelid surgery can also address non-cosmetic issues such as hanging upper-eyelid skin that interferes with vision.

In certain instances, the surgery can be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on the patient’s other conditions and their cosmetic needs.
You should take it easy and rest for a few days, to allow swelling and bruising to subside. We recommend keeping your head elevated on some pillows and following our detailed and thorough aftercare instructions, which we will review with you before your consultation and also after the procedure.
You may experience swelling and bruising. This will improve quickly and the Plastic Surgery of New York team are here to answer any questions in the meantime.
