Women and men who can benefit from eyelid surgery are typically those who suffer from an array of aesthetic imperfections around the upper or lower eyelids. These include puffiness and droopiness that not only make individuals look unhappy and tired but perhaps older than they really are. These imperfections can also affect vision. Eyelid surgery may not the best option for those wishing to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet or wrinkles; however, Dr. Zuckerman can perform other treatments such as injectable fillers or facelift surgery to address those issues. Depending on your own unique needs, eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.

• Upper eyelid surgery typically involves the removal of excess skin that is affecting your vision and/or giving you a tired, haggard appearance. Dr. Zuckerman lifts the remaining skin and reattaches it for a smoother, more refreshed look. Upper eyelid surgery can also help improve vision for those with drooping skin that is affecting your ability to see. Dr. Zuckerman makes incisions for the procedure in the crease of the upper eyelid, so residual scarring should be barely visible. A local anesthetic or general anesthetic can be used for upper eyelid surgery. The procedure is generally performed as an outpatient and takes from one to three hours to complete.

• Lower eyelid surgery is mainly performed to reduce the appearance of bagginess under the eyes. Dr. Zuckerman makes a small incision under the lower eyelashes and then removes excess skin, fat, and muscle. He reshapes the remaining skin into a smoother and firmer appearance. This procedure is typically completed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis, and takes from one to three hours to complete.

• Fat grafting to lower eyelids and tear troughs can also be performed in addition to or instead of lower eyelid surgery to rejuvenate the lower eye area. This fat Dr. Zuckerman typically harvests this fat from the abdomen, similar to a normal liposuction procedure.

Eyelid surgery can be performed at Dr. Zuckerman’s fully-equipped operating room inside his office in midtown Manhattan. This operatory is certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), signifying adherence to the highest standards of medical care.
