The eyes are the windows to the soul, but as you age your window dressing may get in the way.
Let your soul shine through with blepharoplasty, a procedure that will remove excess skin on your lids to give you a more youthful appearance. This procedure will banish sagging, droopy or puffy lids, reduce eye bags and wrinkles, define your eye contours, and let you bat your eyelashes with greater ease.
Your Eyelid Lifting (Blepharoplasty) procedure will be performed in Dr. Mona Stone‘s surgery center located in Westlake, TX.
During your personal consultation with Dr. stone , she will perform a complete evaluation of your face and eyes to determine what needs to address your concerns and achieve the look you desire. This may involve excising extra eyelid skin, removing or relocating fat, and even tightening or repositioning muscles around the eyes.
In some occasions she might recommend combining treatment with one or more complementary procedures, such as fat transfer or skin tightening with laser.
Once you and Dr. Stone have agreed upon a plan for surgery, he will discuss the type of anesthesia used, how the procedure will be performed, and any possible risks involved. He will also provide a comprehensive overview of how to prepare for treatment and what to expect during the recovery process.
What Are the Top Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?
You can address conditions such as:
- Tired appearance to the eyes
- Puffiness in the upper eyelids
- Loose and/or sagging skin
- Fine wrinkles on the lower eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Lower eyelid droopiness
As well, it can also be beneficial from a functional standpoint in the event you have significant upper eyelid drooping. When this is the case, skin removal and tightening during upper blepharoplasty can lead to a greater range of vision that was previously obstructed by hanging tissue.
What Is Recovery from Eyelid Lift Surgery Like?
Recovery from blepharoplasty is relatively short compared with other types of surgeries. Immediately after the procedure you’ll be moved to a recovery room. You’ll be monitored for side effects and, unless there are any complications, you’ll go home the same day.
Dr. Stone prescribes medication drops, cold compresses, and ointment to enhance healing and provide relief from any discomfort that may be encountered—though most patients report only feeling soreness and/or tenderness as opposed to notable pain. After about five to ten days, most normal, non-strenuous daily routines can generally be resumed, but vigorous exercise, physical sports, and/or other strenuous activities will need to be avoided for approximately two to three weeks.
What Does Blepharoplasty Cost?
The cost of upper and lower eyelid surgery together is generally about $7,000. Upper blepharoplasty alone typically starts at $3,000 when performed with a local anesthetic, and lower blepharoplasty by itself usually begins at $5,000 due to the need for general anesthesia. Of course, factors such as the complexity of treatment and whether or not complementary procedures are simultaneously performed may further affect total pricing.
