Eyelid Lift Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Posted by Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging on Nov 21, 2020 9:17:34 AM

Our eyes convey our emotions, expressions, well being, and can reflect how we are portrayed by others around us. Over time, the skin around our eyes can start to lose its laxity, causing wrinkles, bags, puffiness, and droopy eyelids to appear. The eyes are often seen as the most important feature of the face, and this occurrence can cause many to feel self-conscious about their facial appearance. In response to aging eyes, Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging provides the Eyelid Lift Surgery, clinically known as Blepharoplasty, to tighten our patient’s eyelids. This minimally invasive procedure can treat conditions including droopy eyelids, bags under the eyes, puffy upper and lower eyelids, as well as excess skin and fine wrinkles. 

Blepharoplasty Options

 

Upper Eyelid Surgery:

During this procedure, the surgeon will mark the natural lines and creases of the lids. The incisions will be made along these natural folds, to help minimize the scar visibility.

 

Lower Eyelid Surgery:

This surgery particularly helps with puffiness in the eyelids. Incisions along the lower eyelid for minimal visible scarring.

Am I a Good Candidate for an Eyelid Lift?

The eyelid lift procedure benefits both men and women of a variety of ages and skin types. This procedure is beneficial for healthy individuals that have excess skin or fine lines around the eyes that can cause the eyes to appear tired. If you have lines, wrinkles, puffiness, or sagging skin around the eyes, you could benefit from a Blepharoplasty.


How Much Does an Eyelid Lift Cost?

The cost depends on how extensive your procedure will be.  Some patients will be a candidate for a standard eyelid lift while others may also need a lateral brow lift or additional procedures. At your free consultation with Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti Aging, our surgeon will do a thorough examination of the skin, your medical history, and talk with you about your goals for the Blepharoplasty.
