Home » Face » Eyelid Lift

Introducing Dr. Karan Mehta, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan specializing in scarless blepharoplasty in Manhattan. With expertise in restoring a refreshed and youthful appearance to the face and eyes, Dr. Mehta helps patients achieve a more awake, friendly, and rejuvenated look by improving the upper and lower eyelids.

Make Your Eyes Look
Awake & Revitalized

Eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes. As we age, the skin around the eyes can become droopy, puffy, or wrinkled, resulting in a tired and aged look. Eyelid lift surgery addresses these concerns by removing excess skin and fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and repositioning the tissues. This procedure can effectively make your eyes appear more awake, revitalized, and youthful, enhancing your overall facial harmony and boosting your self-confidence.

Types of Eyelid Lift Procedures

Upper Eyelid Lift

During an upper eyelid lift, a small incision is typically made in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. This allows for discreet placement and minimal visibility of the scar. The procedure addresses concerns such as droopy or sagging upper eyelids, excess skin, and wrinkles. Removing the surplus tissue results in a more youthful appearance of the upper eyelids.

Lower Eyelid Lift

A lower eyelid lift, also known as lower blepharoplasty, focuses on rejuvenating the lower area of the eyes. The procedure involves making an incision either inside the lower eyelid (transconjunctival) or just below the lash line (subciliary). It addresses concerns like puffiness, bags under the eyes, and fine lines by removing excess fat and tightening the skin.

Double Eyelid Lift

A double eyelid lift, or Asian blepharoplasty, is a specialized procedure commonly sought after by individuals of Asian descent. It involves creating a natural-looking crease in the upper eyelid, enhancing the definition of the eyes. Scarless blepharoplasty in Manhattan can address concerns such as monolids or asymmetrical eyelid folds. It results in a double eyelid that beautifully frames the eyes.

Candidates for Eyelid Lift:

  • Individuals with droopy or sagging upper eyelids
  • Those with excess skin and wrinkles on the eyelids
  • Individuals with puffiness or bags under the eyes
  • Those with fine lines and wrinkles around the lower eyelids
  • Those in good overall health
  • Those who have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure
  • Those who are non-smokers or willing to stop smoking before or after the procedure

Eyelid Lift Surgical Details

Your eyelid lift surgery with Dr. Mehta will be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. During the surgery for the upper eyelids, Dr. Mehta will make an incision within the fold of the eyelid. Through this incision, he will remove excess skin and fatty tissue and tighten the muscles and tissues.

For the lower eyelids, he will create an inconspicuous incision below the lower lash line. Through this incision, he will remove excess fat or redistribute it to create a firmer appearance. Alternatively, a transconjunctival blepharoplasty may be performed, where the incision is made inside the lower eyelid, with no skin removal, and closed with dissolving sutures.

During scarless blepharoplasty in Manhattan, the incisions are strategically placed within the natural creases and structures of the eyelid region to minimize visible scarring. The duration of the procedure can vary depending on the specific technique used, and whether both upper and lower eyelids are treated, but on average, it typically takes about 1 to 2 hours, following which you’re monitored in the recovery room.


I could not be more pleased with my experience with Dr. Mehta! I went to Dr. Mehta for an under eye blepharoplasty and he was extremely professional and comforting at the same time. I was a little nervous before the procedure but Dr. Mehta made sure to address any of my concerns and he truly made the entire process from consultation to post procedure follow up so simple. I am so happy with my results and I have received so many compliments on the work he did on me! The recovery was quick and easy. I would recommend anyone looking for a plastic surgeon in NYC to go to Dr. Mehta! I will go back to him for any other potential procedures and refer him to anyone I know.

Dr. Mehta is the best. He did my lower eyelids 3 weeks ago and I couldn’t be happier. I had heavy bags under my eyes and they are totally gone. I show all my coworkers my before and after pictures and they are amazed. He also did my daughter’s lower eyelid surgery and she is thrilled with the results. I am sending all my friends and family to him.

Paulette D.

Exceptional. I have complete confidence in Dr. Mehta. He recently performed my upper and lower blepharoplasty, and I cannot imagine how it could have been done any better. What impresses me most is how precise the suture was. The stiches were just removed the day before yesterday, and I can already tell that any sort of scar line is going to be undetectable since the work was aligned so perfectly with my natural eyelid crease and was done immaculately. I can appreciate this precision even more so, because a loved one works in several plastic surgery offices and says that this level of execution is not always the case, even among reputable surgeons. I am grateful that Dr. Mehta was recommended to me so that my procedure was done to the highest level of quality, and will be adamantly recommending him to my friends and family. (P.S.- my eyes already look better than they did when I was 20! I’m super excited about my results!)

I had a great result with MD Mehta. I will recommend him to my friends and family. He is amazing!


I had the most amazing experience with Dr. Mehta!! He exceeded my expectations, and I am super thankful for his work and my results! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! 😀


Dr. Mehta performed my blepharoplasty while I was under local anesthesia. I felt very comfortable and felt no pain at all. I chose him because of his credentials; I felt like he had to be good. As for the results, I could not have asked for better. He exceeded what I expected. I still have some swelling to go down but already it looks great. I can see my big brown eyes again!


The Recovery Process

After your eyelid lift surgery, you can expect a recovery process that involves downtime and special care. Immediately following the procedure, your eyes may be covered with bandages or ointment to protect the incision sites. You may also experience some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication and cold compresses.

During the initial days of recovery, it is essential to keep your head elevated, avoid strenuous activities, and follow Dr. Mehta’s post-operative instructions. This may include using prescribed eye drops, applying ointment, and avoiding activities that strain your eyes, such as reading or using electronic devices for extended periods.

It’s crucial to attend follow-up appointments with Dr. Mehta to monitor your healing and have any sutures or dressings removed.

While individual recovery experiences may vary, most patients can resume their regular activities within 1 to 2 weeks post scarless blepharoplasty in Manhattan. However, it’s essential to note that complete healing and final results may take several months. Dr. Mehta will provide personalized guidance and support throughout your recovery journey to ensure optimal healing.

Eyelid Lift FAQs

How long do the results of an eyelid lift last?

The results of an eyelid lift typically last for years or over a decade, though individual experiences may vary. Factors like genetics, aging, and lifestyle habits can influence longevity.

How much does eyelid lift surgery typically cost?

The cost of eyelid lift surgery varies based on factors like the extent of the procedure, the type of eyelid surgery needed, and more. Dr. Mehta offers personalized consultations to assess each patient’s needs and provides transparent pricing before the procedure.

Will an eyelid lift surgery change the shape of my eyes?

Eyelid lift surgery, or blepharoplasty, is primarily focused on rejuvenating the eyelids’ appearance by removing excess skin and fat. While it can enhance the contours around the eyes, the surgery is not intended to alter the fundamental shape of the eyes.

Can eyelid lift surgery improve vision obstructed by drooping eyelids?

Yes, eyelid lift surgery can often improve vision obstructed by drooping eyelids, a condition known as ptosis. By lifting and tightening the eyelid skin and muscles, the procedure can restore a clearer field of vision, enhancing both the aesthetic appearance and functional aspects of the eyes. Dr. Mehta specializes in customized approaches to address such concerns.
