Eyelid Surgery is a Great Way to give you a more Youthful & Rested Appearance!
Aging and gravity can have a profound effect on the tissues of the face. Nowhere is this more apparent than around the eyes. Loose skin, bags under the eyes, and fatty deposits can all contribute to a look that says “old and tired”.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), upper & lower, can help turn back the clock and restore your eyelids to give you a more youthful, rested appearance. Dr. Hall takes care to place incisions in a location that is not noticeable after your eyelids have healed.
Am I A Candidate For Eyelid Surgery?
You may be a candidate for eyelid surgery if you are healthy and:
- Have sagging, droopy upper eyelids
- Have lower eyelid bags that don’t go away (even after a good night’s sleep)
Eyelid surgery is performed in an outpatient surgery center, and in some cases can be done under a light anesthetic. Surgery length can range in time depending on what different procedures you and Dr. Hall decide are right for you. You will go home the day of the procedure and will apply cooling packs to your eyes to minimize swelling and discomfort.
Over the course of the first week after eyelid surgery, swelling of the eyelids significantly decreases. Sutures are typically removed 5 days after surgery (if there are any to remove at all). You will be given some eye drops that you will need to use for the first week after surgery.
Because of the swelling, most people take a week off of work to recover. Typically, hypoallergenic makeup can be worn after approximately a week, and you can go back to wearing contact lenses (if you need them) at that time.
What Does It Cost?
The cost for eyelid surgery will vary depending on how much skin and fat need to be removed and whether any other procedures are done at the same time. Typically, the total cost for an upper or lower lid eyelid surgery ranges between $4,110 and $5,520. For both upper and lower eyelid surgery, the total cost typically ranges between $7,940 and $8,940. For more information on what is included in the total cost of the procedure, please see the Plastic Surgery Pricing page.
