Dr. Doshi's Eyelid Surgery in Long Island Before & Afters

What are some things eyelid surgery can address?

Dr. Doshi can perform many types of blepharoplasty in his Long Island practice, addressing issues on the top eyelids, the bottom eyelids, or both. This procedure is perfect for the correction of issues that can wind up having effects that are functional, as well as aesthetic — lost volume in the skin above your eyes can cause the skin to sag and droop, impairing your vision while also creating a less-than-desirable appearance.

Aging can similarly cause the loss of collagen under the eyes, resulting in a sunken, drained look, while frustrating fat deposits can form and contribute to an annoying, bulging appearance. Dr. Doshi is adept at a number of different eyelid surgery procedures, each one designed to tackle a specific set of issues for elegant, youthful results.

  • Long-lasting results

Am I a candidate for blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery is an excellent way to fight back against the signs of aging, including drooping skin in the upper lids and bags, puffiness, and discoloration in the lower lids. It can be especially helpful for patients who have noticed that their field of vision has been compromised due to sagging skin. The ideal candidate is mentally and physically healthy and is not currently struggling with any uncontrolled medical concerns. They should be non-smokers who have positive expectations for their results, based on a private consultation with Dr. Doshi and his team.

Types of Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery

Upper Blepharoplasty

This procedure is designed to correct issues with the top eyelids, and involves an incision made along the top crease of the eyelids. Fat deposits will be excised or repositioned, while the underlying muscles will be pulled tight as extra skin is removed for a fresher, tighter appearance.

Lower Blepharoplasty

With an incision made just below the lower eyelash line, lower blepharoplasty involves the removal and/or redistribution of unnecessary fat in the region, along with the removal of any problematic extra skin.

The Transconjunctival Approach

Many patients request the transconjunctival eyelift in our Long Island office, as it typically doesn’t leave behind a visible scar. The incision is made on the inside of the lower eyelid, which allows Dr. Doshi to remove or reposition pockets of fat and correct skin issues.

The Transcutaneous Approach

This eyelid surgery technique avoids an external scar by placing its incision along the lower lid’s conjunctiva, through which excess skin and fat can be removed, while also allowing Dr. Doshi to tighten the underlying muscle and tissues.

Fat Repositioning

Some patients who experience both excess pockets of fat as well as a hollowed-out appearance under the eyes might prefer the fat repositioning technique. Using this technique, Dr. Doshi will remove extra fat around the eyes, while also repositioning some of it to eliminate sunken, hollowed areas as well.

Blepharoplasty FAQ

Can blepharoplasty help with the dark circles under my eyes?

If your dark circles are due to fat bulging in the lower lids, eyelid surgery will be able to help improve your appearance. If the cause has more to do with the pigment in your eyelid skin, Dr. Doshi will most likely take a non-surgical approach, such as a chemical peel. Both surgical and non-surgical procedures can be used in tandem to fully overhaul the aesthetics of the upper face, rejuvenating your smile and boosting your confidence.

How successful will my blepharoplasty be in achieving my anti-aging goals?

Eyelid surgery can go a long way in helping you to look more youthful, relaxed and well-rested. The surgery can remove sagging skin and correct pockets of fat that make the eye area unsightly. The one thing the surgery cannot do is to make you look like a different person altogether, so it’s important that you are realistic in your expectations. Dr. Doshi will discuss the potential benefits of eyelid surgery with you in depth during your confidential consultation.

Are there any age limits when it comes to eyelid surgery?

Dr. Doshi does not assess candidacy for blepharoplasty based solely on age. The biggest factor is the patient’s overall health, as certain medical conditions may inhibit surgery and/or recovery. While clients in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s make up the bulk of blepharoplasty patients, Dr. Doshi has successfully performed surgery on older clients in excellent health.

Are there cases where blepharoplasty is medically necessary?

When sagging in the eyelids begins to negatively affect your vision, then the procedure may be considered a medical necessity. You can undergo an eye evaluation and visual field exam with a trusted ophthalmologist before blepharoplasty, during which the doctor will photograph your eyelid ptosis for insurance purposes. Surgery on the lower eyelids is typically considered elective/cosmetic, unless there is some kind of injury or deformity. You should check with your insurance company to find out the specifics. Rest assured, our office will assist you as much as possible to fill out all the paperwork and have a stress-free experience during blepharoplasty.

What can I expect in terms of scarring after my blepharoplasty surgery?

Dr. Doshi employs a meticulous and conservative approach that results in minimal scarring. Incisions are made within the natural creases and lines of the eyelids where they are well hidden. If you wear makeup on your eyes, these fine scars will be completely undetectable.

What’s the Recovery Process Like?

Recovery following your blepharoplasty in our Long Island practice varies in terms of its time frame, depending on the specific procedure and whether or not it was performed in conjunction with any other surgeries.

Dr. Doshi will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific areas of concern, and will also provide you with specific aftercare instructions to ensure a speedy, proper recovery process.

You’ll want to take seven to 10 days off work and other strenuous activities as you heal, during which time it’s normal to experience a moderate amount of bruising and swelling. This will subside over the course of a week or so, as your shapely, youthful eyelids also become more noticeable.
