Predictability Patients are extremely happy provided the right procedure is chosen for them. Given the precision required-excellent results are just a matter of millimeters-surgery must be performed by an expert physician. Excessive hooding, which can sometimes interfere with peripheral vision, often requires addressing the root problem by performing a brow lift (and not just cutting excess upper eyelid skin).
Discomfort during the procedure Minimal. We use local anesthesia and intravenous sedation.
Downtime 2-5 days
Cost You may benefit from upper and lower eyelid surgery or both. Because this procedure can be performed in combination with others to maximize results, patients may receive lower pricing with a service package that addresses most facial imperfections at the same time.
Some people have excess skin and fat on their upper eyelid, which can create a heavy looking eyelid, aged appearance, puffiness and can sometimes block vision. Upper blepharoplasty is performed to remove this excess skin and fat.
Lower blepharoplasty removes excess skin and fat and reduces wrinkles. Adding fat can also be done to improve a ‘hollowed’ and tired appearance.
This is also known as ‘Asian double eyelid surgery’ and is a procedure that aims to surgically create creases in the eyelids of Asian patients. This surgery is also known as Westernization of the eyelid.
