Not only are your eyes considered windows to the soul, they also show your age. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, improves droopy eyelid skin and removes eye bags.
Am I A Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Good upper eyelid surgery candidates have excess skin hiding the natural crease of the upper eyelid. Good lower eyelid surgery candidates have eye bags which are fat and skin. If you wake up and puffiness under the eye remains after a good night’s sleep you are a good candidate for lower eyelid blepharoplasty.
Why have Blepharoplasty by Dr. Thomas Kaniff?
Eyelid Surgery Consultation
At your eyelid surgery consultation Dr. Kaniff will discuss your concerns and examine your eyelids. Based on this discussion and his experience he will recommend the best eyelid plastic surgery option. Often brow surgery is combined with eyelid surgery to reposition the brow to a more youthful position. If a droopy brow is present brow lift surgery should be considered at the same time as blepharoplasty. Dr. Kaniff may also recommend nonsurgical eyelid procedures such as injectable fillers and Botox / Dysport in addition to eyelid surgery or in some case instead of eyelid surgery.
The Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Upper eyelid surgery or eye lift is performed through an incision in the natural skin crease above the eyelash line to remove excess fat and skin. Upper eyelid plastic surgery results in more youthful and rested looking eyes. Lower eyelid surgery is generally performed through an incision below the eyelash line. Fat, which often creates a puffy appearance, is removed along with excess skin. An incision-less method call trans-conjunctival blepharoplasty approaches the fat herniation from inside the lower eyelid so that no eyelid skin incision is necessary. This approach is often best suited for younger patients or those without excess skin.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery
Eyelid surgery recovery is measured in terms of days with minimal pain, swelling and bruising. Most people having blepharoplasty return to work after several days. No heavy bending, lifting or straining is recommended for two weeks.
Eyelid Surgery Cost
The cost of blepharoplasty depends on whether you are considering both upper and lower eyelid surgery, and the complexity of your individual situation. A detailed quote will be given to you after meeting with Dr. Kaniff.
