Dr. Mark Schwartz Helps Patients Improve Their appearance, with Blepharoplasty

New York, NY ( release-news ) December 23, 2013 - With age, the area around the eyes can become puffy, or drooped, causing one to have a fatigued, aged look. This is often extremely noticeable, and may become even more of a concern if a droopy eyelid falls into a person's eyes, obstructing their eyesight. Fortunately, blepharoplasty ("eyelid surgery") can correct this issue.

Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schwartz performs blepharoplasty, to improve the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. "Blepharoplasty removes excess skin and fat from the eyelid areas," Dr. Schwartz explains, "The procedure leaves patients with a refreshed, more youthful look." He adds, "The best candidates for the procedure are adult men and women who are in good health, and want to address the appearance of loose skin, or puffy bags around their eyes. Patients who have serious eye conditions, such as cataracts or glaucoma, are not considered suitable candidates for this treatment."

Blepharoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure, usually under twilight or local anesthesia. Depending on their desires, patients may either choose to have a lower eyelid lift ("lower blepharoplasty") or upper eyelid lift ("upper blepharoplasty"), or a combination of the two procedures. Upper eyelid lifts are the more common procedure of the two, and are done to remove excess skin from the upper region of the eyelid. An incision is made along the crease of the upper eyelid fold, removing the fat and excess skin. A lower eyelid lift tightens and removes puffiness from the lower region of the eyes. Incisions with both of these procedures are discreet, and leave behind little or no scarring. In cases where the main issue is puffiness, incisions can be made within the eyelid to avoid an external scar. This approach is known as "transconjunctival blepharoplasty."

Following the blepharoplasty, Dr. Schwartz recommends using cold compresses to relieve any side-effects of the procedure, which may include swelling, irritation, or bruising. Patients will usually be able to return to work about a week or so after the procedure, although strenuous activities should be avoided for up to two weeks.

"The results of blepharoplasty are visible almost immediately," Dr. Schwartz says, "The patient will likely continue to see improvement in the appearance of their eyes for up to a year after surgery. The scars are virtually unnoticeable, and patients are thrilled with their appearance following this highly-effective procedure."

Dr. Schwartz practices in New York City, and offers both surgical and non-surgical procedures, helping patients achieve ideal cosmetic results. Interested parties should contact 212.737.9090 or visit http://www.drmarkschwartz.com, for more information.
