Blepharoplasty: Eyelid Surgery

Your eyes express more than any other feature of your face. If you suffer from eyes that are heavy, puffy, wrinkled, or pigmented, eyelid surgery may be the right choice for you.

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can rejuvenate and freshen your eyelids. When your eyelids are smooth rather than puffy or drooping, you appear younger and well rested.

Dr. Lesesne is a top New York eyelid surgery specialist and treats men and women of all ages, starting in their early twenties.

Upper Eyelid Lift

Dr. Lesesne performs upper eyelid blepharoplasty to remove excess, sagging skin that makes you appear tired and can even impair vision. He can also remove excess fat deposits that make your eyes appear puffy.

Lower Eyelid Lift

Dr. Lesesne performs lower eyelid blepharoplasty to remove fat deposits that cause "bags" under your eyes. He can also remove excess skin or tighten skin to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and/or eye droopiness.

Both upper and lower eyelid procedures give you a more alert, younger appearance that can last for years with the proper care and attention.

Eyelid Analysis and Surgery


Dr. Lesesne’s analysis will focus on the anatomy of your eyelids, the eyebrow level, crow’s feet, skin pigment, and facial tone. In some cases a Visual Field Test is required before surgery. A detailed operative plan will be reviewed with you. Our goal is to make your eyelids look younger, rested, smoother, beautiful, and natural.


Upper eyelid surgery begins with a small incision in the natural crease of the eyelid. The procedure involves tightening muscle tissue, repositioning fat, and removing excess skin. Upper eyelid surgery is done in our Park Avenue surgical suite under intravenous sedation or local anesthesia. The procedure typically lasts 1/2 hour to 1 hour.

For lower eyelid surgery, an incision is made just below the lower eyelash. Excess skin is removed through that small incision to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and puffiness or bags. If Dr. Lesesne determines that a transconjunctival incision is the best option for you, an incision will be made inside the lower eyelid to further minimize scarring. Dr. Lesesne can also recommend laser and chemical peel treatments to remove dark shadows from under the eye.

Because Dr. Lesesne makes small incisions in inconspicuous areas, the result is barely noticeable scarring. The incisions can also be easily concealed during healing with minimal makeup.


After your eyelid surgery you will apply a cold compress to your eyes to reduce bruising and swelling. Some patients require eye lubricants to keep the eyes from becoming dry. Your stitches will be in for about a week and, if visible, will be covered with a small, flesh-colored bandage. In most cases, dissoluble stitches are used and do not need to be removed.

Dr. Lesesne and his team will give you clear instructions about follow-up visits, medications required for bruising and swelling, and how to properly care for your eyelids after surgery.
