In Long Island, eyelid surgery
has surged in popularity because it can immediately create a more youthful look by removing sagging skin and bulging fat above or below the eyelid, thus offering a refreshed appearance. Rejuvenation of the eyelid area when combined with a facelift or brow lift, can thoroughly improve the facial appearance to restore the eye area. The best candidates are healthy men and women with realistic expectations. Dr. Arnold Breitbart meets with patients in an initial consultation to determine their goals, review their current health and medical history, and offer suggestions for the best results. In Long Island, eyelid surgery
has also been effective to lift up drooping upper lids found to interfere with vision. Often done in conjunction with a facelift, brow lift, laser resurfacing, or forehead lift in Long Island, eyelid surgery involves making incisions in the crease of the upper lid or inside the lash line of the lower lid, while removing excess skin and fat. Sutures close up the incision and naturally dissolve within five days.
For patients undergoing eye surgery or liposuction, Long Island’s Dr. Arnold Breitbart advises general rest for several days after surgery before resuming normal activities. All difficult or strenuous physical activity should be avoided until the patient has fully recovered after three to four weeks from eyelid surgery or liposuction. Long Island
patients notice dramatic results within a few days with a refreshed and more youthful appearance.
