Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty), reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons. It's also an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision.
When to Consider Eyelid Surgery
• If you have excess, hanging skin covering the natural fold of the upper eyelids
• If you have loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids over the eyelashes
• If your upper and lower eyelids appear puffy, making your eyes look tired and aged
• If you have deep grooves under your eyes.
How long does the procedure take?
Every situation is unique, but generally an upper Blepharoplasty surgery (under local) is about 1-1.5 hours long. An upper Blepharoplasty surgery (under general) is about 1 hour long, a lower Blepharoplasty surgery (under general) is about 1.5 hours long, and an upper and lower Blepharoplasty surgery (under general) is about 1-2 hours long.
Will it be performed under local or general anesthesia?
Either. The use of what kind of anesthesia depends on the patient and will be determined during the initial consultation.
How long will I be out of work?
Patients may return to work within 1 week.
How much does surgery cost?
Every situation is unique and the cost of surgery depends on several factors. The duration of the procedure varies on how extensive the surgery is. The duration will then determine the price of anesthesia and how long the surgical facility will be scheduled for. In order to provide the most accurate surgical fee estimate, it is necessary to meet with one of our board certified physicians for a consultation.
