How Much is Blepharoplasty?

The delicate area around the eyes often shows signs of aging before the rest of the face. Eyelids can start to sag, and undereye bags emerge. A blepharoplasty or eyelid lift restores a youthful appearance to the upper or lower eyelid and leaves you looking more rested and alert. 

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both if the person chooses. The procedure will improve the appearance of the eyelid area by addressing loose skin and accumulated fat. To provide complete rejuvenation, Dr. Brenman can perform eyelid lifts in a single procedure or combine them with other procedures, such as a facelift.

How Does Blepharoplasty Work?

People may have blepharoplasty on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both, depending on their areas of concern. A consultation with Dr. Brenman will help determine if blepharoplasty will work for you and which type you need

Upper Blepharoplasty

During an upper blepharoplasty, a small incision in the crease of the upper eyelid allows the surgeon to remove excess fat, tighten the eyelid muscles, and then remove excess skin to restore a smoother, more alert, and bright-eyed appearance. A direct browlift to elevate the outer third of the eyebrow may also be performed through the same incision if indicated.

Lower Blepharoplasty

A lower blepharoplasty focuses on the undereye bags and drooping skin beneath the lower eyelids. A small hidden incision lets the surgeon remove excess fat pads to remove undereye bags, then tighten excess skin to remove wrinkles and sagging. After a lower blepharoplasty, people often look more well-rested and refreshed.

How Much is Blepharoplasty?

While costs vary significantly based on your location, your provider, and the type of procedure, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons lists an average cost of $4120. You will need to schedule your consultation to get an accurate estimate since costs will differ based on the procedure and other factors. 

What is Recovery Like From Blepharoplasty?

After surgery, you will experience swelling, bruising, and soreness. Cold compresses can help ease swelling and make you more comfortable. Most people can return to work within a week of their procedure. Some swelling and bruising will remain, but many people find that they can cover this with makeup. You can resume normal physical activities after four to six weeks with Dr. Brenman’s approval. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

If you have sagging skin or accumulated fat around the upper or lower eyelid, you may be a good candidate for a blepharoplasty. The ideal candidate does not smoke and has no serious health problems or medical problems with their eyes. Discuss any health concerns during your consultation. 

Perfect – no pain during and two hours after anesthesia wore off, I had no discomfort whatsoever. Less than one week afterwards, all swelling & redness had gone away. Now my eyelids don’t throw a shadow on my vision. Excellent! Thank you Dr. Brenman.
