What Eyelid Surgery Is Best For The New Year?

The eyes are the focal point of the face. If your eyes are surrounded by fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles, this can make you look and feel older than you are. The area around the eyes is some of the thinnest on the entire body, and therefore it is the most susceptible to early signs of aging. As the muscles and tissue of the eyelids weaken, the eyelids appear droopy, sunken, puffy, and wrinkled, ultimately hiding your gorgeous eyes.


Eyelid surgery with board-certified eyelid and facial plastic surgeon Dr. Malena Amato can take years, even decades, off the appearance of your eyes. Here are some eyelid surgeries offered by Dr. Amato to help you start the new year with a better perspective!

Upper Blepharoplasty

The upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid lift, is perfect for drooping, puffy eyelids. This surgery repairs the form and function of the eyelids that have been affected by loosening eyelid muscles and sagging skin. Results from this eyelid procedure restore a youthful, vibrant look and can even widen your peripheral vision. Dr. Amato typically uses minimally invasive techniques to minimize scarring and discomfort when conducting eyelid surgery. Her approach includes tiny incisions and precise instruments to allow for a speedy recovery and natural yet youthful results.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower blepharoplasty, or lower eyelid lift, is for patients experiencing downward migration of the midface, bulging lower eyelid fat pads, and drooping or wrinkling skin that are hard to conceal with makeup or reverse with topical products. Dr. Amato improves the contours of the eyelids by removing excess skin and removing or repositioning fat to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags, hollowness, and skin laxity while also reducing wrinkles and the folds around the eyes. The results of this procedure are a vibrant, well-rested, and more welcoming expression.

Asian Blepharoplasty

Many East Asian descendants are born with eyelids that have either a partial pretarsal crease or none at all. This type of eyelid doesn’t always create cosmetic or functional products at all, but in some cases, they can lead to eye irritation from lashes and obstruction of vision. Asian blepharoplasty is designed to create a crease in the upper eyelid to meet your ideal cosmetic preference while also improving clarity of vision. With Asian blepharoplasty, Dr. Amato can remove excess fat from the upper and lower lids to create a refreshed, awakened look to your eyes.
