What is Blepharoplasty?

One of the areas that is often overlooked for anti-aging rejuvenation is the eyelids. The delicate skin is prone to losing elasticity which allows it to sag downward, over the upper part of the eye. Even the lower eyelids can sag, leaving the soft pink tissue under the eyeball exposed and giving you an exhausted appearance.

Blepharoplasty, known as eyelid surgery, is a relatively simple procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia in many cases. For upper eyelid surgery, the incision is made in the natural crease and the tissue is pulled taut over the area. Any extra skin and fat is removed. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision is typically made in the eyelash line and excess tissue is removed before closing the incision.

What is the Cost of Blepharoplasty?

The average cost of blepharoplasty is about $3,900 for the lower eyelids; the average cost for the upper eyelids is between $2,600 – $3,900, although this does vary by patient. We can discuss the details of your cost for blepharoplasty at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.

What Are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty?

  • Gives the eyes a more open and alert appearance
  • May reduce eye fatigue that is caused by the weight of sagging lids
  • Small change that produces significant results in the eye area

What is the Recovery Time for Blepharoplasty?

After the surgery, your eyelids will feel tight and you will have swelling, bruising, and some discomfort. Your eyes may be covered to protect the incisions. We give you an ointment to use on the incisions to keep them soft and moist. You may need to use cold compresses and eye drops to stay comfortable after the surgery.

For the first seven days, you will not be able to read, watch television, or partake in other activities that could dry out your eyes. When you are outdoors, wear dark sunglasses.

You will spend the first week resting at home, and you can return to work after 10 days. Full recovery from blepharoplasty can take three to six weeks.
