Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) NJ
NJ Eyelid Surgery | New Jersey Blepharoplasty
What is eyelid surgery?
Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, and gives a rejuvenated appearance to the area around your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.
Enhancing your appearance
New Jersey eyelid surgery seeks to restore a youthful rested appearance to your eyes and the surrounding areas.
Specifically, eyelid surgery can treat:
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
- Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris (colored portion of the eye)
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
Depending upon the exact cause and nature of your specific condition, Dr. Rosenberg may recommend that a brow lift be performed at the same time as your upper eyelid surgery in order to ensure that the area around the eyes have an optimally rejuvenated appearance.
Is a NJ Blepharoplasty right for me?
Eyelid surgery is usually performed on adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles and have realistic goals for improvement of the upper and/or lower eyelids and surrounding area.
You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.*

What to expect during your consultation
The success and safety of your Bergen County eyelid surgery procedure depends very much on your complete candidness during your consultation. You’ll be asked a number of questions about your health, desires and lifestyle. Dr. Rosenberg and his staff members will also:

- Discuss likely outcomes of eyelid surgery and any risks or potential complications

Preparing for surgery
Prior to surgery, you may be asked to:
- Get lab testing or a medical evaluation, and possibly an eye exam from an ophthalmologist
- Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
- Stop smoking well in advance of surgery
- Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding
