Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a delicate, transformative procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the eyes, addressing premature aging signs and revitalizing the overall facial aesthetic. Dr. Matthew White, a leading expert in facial plastic surgery in New York City, brings his extensive knowledge and artistic skills to help you achieve a more youthful and vibrant look.
Blepharoplasty Before & After
What is eyelid surgery?
Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the eyes by treating sagging skin, puffiness, and fine lines in the eye area. Over time, factors such as aging, genetics, sun exposure, and lifestyle choices can contribute to the loss of skin elasticity, leading to a tired and aged appearance. Dr. White specializes in tailoring eyelid lifts to address these issues, restoring definition to your eyes and revitalizing your overall facial expression.
What is the procedure?
Dr. Matthew White is renowned for his meticulous approach to eyelid surgery, ensuring that each procedure is customized to meet the patient’s unique needs. For upper eyelids, incisions are strategically placed in the natural creases to make incision lines virtually invisible. These incisions allow for the repositioning of fat deposits and the precise removal of excess skin. Lower eyelid enhancements are performed with equal precision, with incisions made within the lower eyelid to conceal scars. Dr. White’s expertise ensures a seamless integration of surgical skill and aesthetic balance, providing beautiful and natural results.
In the words of our patients…
“beautiful, natural results”
“I have been a patient of Dr. White’s for many years, and I have always been impressed with his understanding of the aesthetics of the face. I also like the fact that he specializes in facial surgery alone. Dr. White’s highly refined sense of facial proportion produces beautiful, natural-looking results that do not in any way look like plastic surgery. You, only better!”
“My outcome is so natural.”
“By far the kindest plastic surgeon EVER. And by far the very best in a town where everyone is great. He’s the plastic surgeon’s surgeon! He actually listens to what your concerns are. He does not try to sell you anything. His main concern is the patient. My outcome is so natural. He takes his time and is quite gifted. Highly recommend. Why go anywhere else! And he was recommended to me by a plastic surgeon. The best!”
“I couldn’t be happier with my decision…”
“I can’t recommend Dr. White enough. Once I sat down with him to discuss my surgery, I knew I didn’t need to look any further for the right surgeon for me. He is sincere, knowledgeable, and professional, and I felt extremely comfortable in his care. At several weeks post-op, I couldn’t be happier with my decision and am already thrilled with my results. Because of Dr. White and his wonderful staff, I felt completely prepared for my surgery and knew what to expect post-op.”

What can eyelid surgery treat?
- Sagging or loose skin: Creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision.
- Excess fatty deposits: Appear as puffiness in the eyelids.
- Bags under the eyes: Eyelid surgery can reduce or eliminate these.
- Drooping lower eyelids: Showing white below the iris (colored portion of the eye).
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid: Eyelid surgery can smooth and reduce these.
- Hooded eyelids: The excess skin from the upper eyelids can be reduced, which makes the eyes appear more open and awake.
- Asymmetry: Correcting differences in the upper or lower eyelids.
- Festoons: Lower eyelid surgery can be customized to treat “festoons,” or “malar bags,” the swollen mounds below the lower eyelid.
Recovery time after eyelid surgery
Recovery from eyelid surgery is typically quick, with most patients returning to work or their other regular activities within a week to ten days. You may experience some bruising and swelling initially, but these symptoms are temporary and subside as you heal.
