Blepharoplasty

Drooping upper eyelids and puffy, baggy lower eyelids can impede your vision and give you a sleepy, aged appearance.

A blepharoplasty is a procedure that can improve sight by lifting drooping eyelids, as well as give you a more youthful look. 

Dr. James Kirszrot of Rockland Eye Physicians & Surgeons in Garnerville, NY, can improve your vision and appearance with eyelid surgery...

Eyelid surgery performed by Dr. Kirszrot can remove excess fat deposits, tighten sagging eyelid muscles, and trim excess skin on the upper and/or lower lids. After reviewing your cosmetic needs and plastic surgery goals, he can design a fully customized blepharoplasty procedure that complements your unique facial features and contours while minimizing scarring. 

Why Choose Us for Your Blepharoplasty

Board-Certified Surgeon

Dr. James Kirszrot has years of specialized eye and facial surgery training and education that many ophthalmological surgeons do not. His certification guarantees that he is at the top of his profession.

Prestigious Affiliations

Dr. Kirszrot is the current Director of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Metropolitan Hospital Center in New York City.

Twilight Sedation

Our Garnerville and West Nyack, NY, practice offers safe IV sedation, where a relaxing medicine is introduced into your system by a trained staff member. You'll be sleepy throughout and after your procedure, so you'll need a ride home. 

Experience

Dr. Kirszrot performs this procedure several times a week and has performed over 1,000 blepharoplasty procedures overall.

No Uncomfortable Stitches

Unlike other surgeons, Dr. Kirszrot uses dissolving sutures, meaning you do not have to come back to our office to have your stitches removed.

Two Convenient Locations

You can visit either our Garnerville, or West Nyack, NY, locations for your consultation and exam. Dr. Kirszrot exclusively performs blepharoplasty procedures at our fully equipped West Nyack office.

What Causes Eyelids to Sag and Puff Up?

  • Our eyelids tend to stretch as we get older, causing our eyelid muscles to lose strength.
  • This can lead to excess skin and accumulated fat deposits in our upper eyelids, as well as our lower eyelids.
  • The results are upper eyelids that droop down over our eyes and baggy, enlarged lower eyelids.
  • This can cause eye irritation and obscure your upper, lower, and side (peripheral) vision.
  • This can also leave you looking exhausted and prematurely aged.

Four Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

Improves Vision...

...by removing visual obstructions caused by sagging upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids. The procedure gives you a clean line of sight, improving your quality of life.

Refreshes Facial Appearance...

...by creating a more alert, youthful appearance, which can boost your self-esteem in social and professional situations.

Enhances Eye Health...

...by raising drooping lower lids, protecting your eyes from dust and irritants that may collect in the creases.

Refine the Look of Your Eyes...

...by tightening sagging lower eyelids that may reveal too much of the whites of your eyes.

They were very pleasant and professional during these trying times. I have been a longtime patient and have always been very satisfied. They did exactly what they needed to and I love the fact an optician is right there.

What About Insurance Coverage and Financing?

  • Because blepharoplasty is considered a plastic surgery procedure, it may not be covered by insurance if done for strictly cosmetic reasons.
  • However, if drooping, puffy eyelids are impeding your vision, insurance may cover your eyelid surgery as a medical necessity. The knowledgeable staff at our patient-friendly Garnerville, New York, office will do everything they can to get you maximum coverage if this is the case.
  • Should out-of-pocket costs occur, we happily accept financing through CareCredit®, a trusted third-party lender that offers low-interest monthly payment plans.

Another 5-Star Review for Our Practice

"The office and staff were safe, efficient and as always, extremely competent. I have been a patient of this office for over 20 years and would never receive services anywhere else."

The Blepharoplasty Procedure Timeline

Consultation

Dr. Kirszrot will conduct a detailed consultation, reviewing your medical history and examining your eyes. After verifying your candidacy for blepharoplasty, he will create a personal surgical plan to reduce the sagging and drooping that are affecting your eyelids.

Sedation & Incisions

The day of your blepharoplasty, IV sedation will be administered for your comfort. Dr. Kirszrot will create small incisions, either on the eyelid crease, lower lash line, or both, depending on your procedure. The incisions will be precisely placed to hide any scarring.

Surgical Removal & Tightening

Excess skin will be trimmed, unwanted fat deposits will be removed, and sagging muscles will be tightened and lifted. In some cases, pockets of fat cells can be redistributed to reduce puffiness.

Sutures & Recovery

Once surgery is complete, Dr. Kirszrot can close the incisions with dissolving sutures or specialized glue. You can now go home to rest and recuperate. Please make sure you someone is standing by to drive you home as you will be groggy.

What Is Blepharoplasty Recovery Like?

Dr. Kirszrot's advanced, effective techniques can minimize discomfort after surgery. You should be able to go back to work in about ten days. You may experience some minor side effects, most of which should subside quickly, including:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Eyelid Irritation
  • Blurred Vision
  • Dry Eyes

Dr. Kirszrot can prescribe pain killers, antibiotics, drops for dry eyes, and ointments to ensure a smooth recovery. He will review at-home care instructions after surgery for optimal healing, which include using ice packs to reduce swelling and bruising, getting plenty of rest, and avoiding strenuous activity for a few weeks.
