Also called an eyelid lift,blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the eyelids to improve the appearance of sagging skin, under eye bags, and puffiness. Dr. Greenberg can perform blepharoplasty on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both.
Blepharoplasty can restore a more youthful and alert appearance to the eyes. For many people, the delicate eye area shows signs of aging before other parts of the face, so eyes can make a person look older than they are. Dr. Greenberg restores the eye area to give you a more rested and brighter appearance.
How Does Blepharoplasty Work?
Dr. Greenberg can perform blepharoplasty on the upper or lower eyelid. Some people will opt to have both. Upper and lower eyelid procedures work in a similar way but address some different concerns.
An upper blepharoplasty uses an incision hidden in the crease of the eyelid to remove loose, drooping skin. Dr. Greenberg will also remove accumulated fat that can make the eyes look heavier.
Dr. Greenberg will perform a lower blepharoplasty by removing excessive fat that forms under the eye as well as removing drooping skin and correcting a heavy, sagging appearance.
Blepharoplasty offers many benefits, especially since the eyes form such a noticeable and expressive part of the face.
Restores a Youthful Appearance
Because blepharoplasty lifts sagging skin around the eyes, it restores a more youthful and bright-eyed appearance. The skin around the eyes can show age more obviously than most other areas of the face so that blepharoplasty can change a person’s entire appearance.
No More Looking Tired
People often look like they haven’t had enough sleep with sagging skin, drooping eyelids, and bags under the eyes. After blepharoplasty, expect people to stop asking if you’ve been sleeping well. You will look rested and rejuvenated.
Results from an eyelid lift can last for well over five years since the excess skin and fat pads have been removed. Most people remain happy with the results of the procedure for many years.
Works Well With Other Procedures
Dr. Greenberg can combine blepharoplasty with a wide range of other surgical and non-surgical procedures to help you get the results you want. A blepharoplasty may be recommended to complement and improve the results of another procedure.
After the initial swelling resolves, people can enjoy the benefits of their surgery. Because the eye area can show age so much, correcting this can restore a younger and more alert appearance to the entire face.
How Much is Blepharoplasty?
People often ask how much blepharoplasty costs. This question can be difficult to answer without a full consultation to determine the exact procedure you will need. However, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates an average cost of $4120 for the surgeon’s fee. Additional costs include anesthesia and operating room fees. This varies by provider, location, and type of procedure.
