What is Blepharoplasty?

Known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure meticulously crafted to enhance the eyelids’ appearance and functionality. This surgical technique can remove fat deposits, reduce puffiness, remove excess skin, and restore a more youthful contour to your upper and lower eyelids. By precisely sculpting the eyelids, blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes, creating a more refreshed and alert look.

Types of Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty can be categorized into three main types, each targeting specific concerns and areas of the eyelid.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

This procedure primarily aims to remove excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids. It is often sought by individuals with sagging, drooping, or puffy eyelids, which may contribute to a tired appearance or even obstruct vision. Upper blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the area around the eyes and, in cases where vision is impaired, can significantly improve the field of sight.
Each type of blepharoplasty addresses specific concerns and can be tailored to your particular needs and aesthetic goals. Whether seeking improvement for functional reasons or cosmetic enhancement, blepharoplasty offers a transformative solution to a wide range of eyelid issues.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

Here are the essential criteria to see if you’re an ideal candidate for our eyelid surgery:

Age Considerations

Ideal candidates are typically over 30, where aging signs are more visible, though younger individuals may opt for the procedure for cosmetic reasons like double eyelid surgery.

Health Status

An ideal candidate is in overall good health, without medical conditions that could complicate surgery or recovery, and free from serious eye conditions.

Vision-Related Issues

Those experiencing visual impairment due to drooping eyelids obstructing their field of view may benefit significantly from blepharoplasty.

Realistic Expectations

Understanding what blepharoplasty can realistically achieve and being informed about the recovery and risks are crucial for potential candidates.

Emotional Well-being

Ideal candidates should be emotionally stable and seek eyelid surgery based on personal satisfaction goals, not due to external pressures.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Here’s an overview of the benefits that come with opting for our blepharoplasty procedure:

Blepharoplasty Procedure

Consultation and Evaluation

The first step in our blepharoplasty process is a comprehensive consultation with our cosmetic surgeon. During this consultation, expect your medical history to be evaluated, your eyes examined, and your aesthetic goals discussed. This vital step determines the best technique for your desired outcomes and ensures your suitability for the procedure.

Once deemed suitable, detailed preparation instructions will be provided, including dietary guidelines, medication restrictions, and possibly smoking cessation. Adhering to these instructions minimizes risks and ensures optimal results. Additionally, arrangements should be made for transportation and assistance during the initial recovery period.

On the day of the procedure, you will be administered anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the surgery. The specifics of the blepharoplasty procedure vary depending on whether you have upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or both.
For upper eyelid surgery, our surgeon makes incisions along the fold of the eyelid to remove or reposition fat deposits, tighten muscles, and remove excess skin. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision is typically made just below the line lash or inside the lower eyelid to correct under-eye bags and improve the appearance of wrinkles.
Our surgeon closes the incisions with fine sutures, which might be removed after a few days or dissolve on their own.

Blepharoplasty can be combined with a brow lift, facelift, and/or BOTOX® treatments to raise the eyebrows or minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, facial wrinkles, fine lines, or dark circles under the eyes. This provides comprehensive facial rejuvenation and enhances overall aesthetic results.

Recovery After Blepharoplasty

It’s common to encounter swelling, bruising, and some discomfort immediately following the surgery, which are all normal reactions. Your surgeon will prescribe appropriate medications and may recommend using cold compresses to alleviate these initial symptoms. We will also provide guidance on eye care and schedule your next consultation.

 It’s beneficial to keep your head elevated while resting during the initial days after surgery to reduce swelling. You’ll be advised to avoid strenuous activities, including heavy lifting, for approximately 10-14 days to ensure a smooth recovery process. For those who wear contact lenses, it’s advisable to refrain from wearing them for the first couple of weeks to allow your eyes to heal properly.

While you may begin to feel significantly better within a few weeks, the complete healing process, especially the fading of scars, may extend over a few months. For a smoother recovery, it is recommended that you shield your eyes from sunlight using sunglasses and avoid the urge to rub your eyes.

Cost of Blepharoplasty

The cost of eyelid surgery can range from $3,000 to $7,000. It varies depending on several factors, including the expertise of the surgeon performing the procedure, whether you’re opting for surgery on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, 
or both, and other associated fees like those for the surgical facility and anesthesia.

Botox & Fillers

I’ve came to Dr. Bailey for years now and have always had the highest quality experience!!! He always goes above and beyond to make sure the procedure for Botox and Filler are pain free. In my 20’s I struggled with extremely bad migraines, at least 3 per month. Once I started Botox with Dr.Bailey they were completely alleviated and of course the cosmetic results were top notch as well. The entire office staff has always made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I truly feel like they care about me and I’m not “just another patient”. I am always 💯 pleased with my results. Dr. Collin Bailey is the BEST!! His unmatchable expertise keeps me coming back!!!!

Making an appointment was very easy. The doctor was very honest with what needed to be done. I am very pleased with the results and will definitely return for my second procedure!

Breast Lift & Implants

“I was intimidated when I first came in but I was greeted at the door and Dr. Bailey’s staff was so nice and made me feel so welcomed. When I was having my consultation I felt insecure about myself but Dr. Bailey and his staff made me feel at ease. They were willing to tell me all my options and explain the procedure thoroughly. I am so happy I moved forward with a breast lift and my implants are a perfect size as well. I am feeling and looking better than ever! I have more confidence and overall feel better about myself. I couldn’t recommend this facility more! I keep telling my friends to come in for consultation so they can have a great experience like I did.”
