Upper Blepharoplasty

with DrBfixin in Long Island, NY

Our eyes reflect so much of our life and are often the first thing strangers notice. They are a focal point of the face and allow others to see parts of who we are. Expressions and emotions are found in the eyes, making them a critical part of interaction. Eyes change over time, and age can sometimes interfere with the pure and bright appearance of the eyes. 


The upper eyelids can begin to droop, creating a heavy, hooded look to the eye, and many struggle with feeling confident in their image when this aging process begins. At Cameo Surgery Center, Dr. Scott Blyer, often known as  DrBfixin, knows that the eyes should be a point of joy and confidence, not shame and embarrassment. DrBfixin is here to help revitalize your gaze through the best upper blepharoplasty Long Island, NYC.

The Effects Of Age On The Eyes

Aging has profound effects on the eyes, particularly the upper eyelid region. Due to the loss of muscular tightness and fat around the orbital socket, the upper eyelids can fall lower toward the lash line, creating a heavy and sunken appearance. Additionally, when the skin becomes thin and begins to sag, it can interfere with the field of vision and create issues with eyesight. Some other issues the upper eyelids can face include: 

  • Always looking tired
  • Overhanging eyebrows
  • Hollow skin around the orbital socket
  • Upper eyelid skin that touches the inner eye crease
  • Wrinkled skin on the eyelid
  • Fatty tissue above or on the eyelid
  • Issues with vision due to excess skin and fat
  • Feelings of embarrassment due to eye appearance

Luckily,  upper eyelid surgery Long Island works to correct all of these issues and restore youthful and vitality to the eyes. We can give you a refreshed and natural look.

It’s common for patients to need cosmetic or functional surgery, but it can also be performed for both.

Upper Blepharoplasty Surgical Process

Before undergoing an upper blepharoplasty, the patient will attend a consultation with DrBfixin. This consultation will help him ensure safety, verify the best solutions, and create the perfect plan for every goal.

Upper Eyelid Surgery, Long Island

During an upper blepharoplasty surgery, DrBfixin will create a tiny incision on the natural crease of your eye (where it folds naturally). After the incision, he will eliminate all excess skin and underlying fatty tissue from the eye. In some instances, some of the muscle is removed and tightened to ensure the eye is lifted. 

The surgery is commonly performed with the patient under local anesthesia, as it is less invasive than most cosmetic surgeries. It can be performed with some light sedation as well for those who are nervous.  While the patient is awake during the surgery, DrBfixin ensures they are comfortable and feel no discomfort. If a patient has more procedures done with their upper eyelid surgery, they may be put under general anesthesia. Patients often undergo a brow lift and upper blepharoplasty simultaneously, as it can create the ideal eye lift for every patient.
