What is Blepharoplasty?
An eyelid lift, medically known as a blepharoplasty, is the procedure performed to improve the appearance of sagging skin around the eyes. This procedure can involve the upper and lower eyelids and the skin around the eyes. A blepharoplasty targets the sagging skin that has developed over time from aging and other factors such as weight loss.
A blepharoplasty procedure removes excess skin, contours the eye, diminishes under eye bags, and tightens the skin around the eyes.
What are the Benefits of a Blepharoplasty?
The benefits of blepharoplasty are numerous. Both functionality and the aesthetic look are restored after an eyelid lift. Some of the main benefits of this treatment include tighter skin around the eyes, reduction of under-eye bags, improved vision, improved self-confidence, and a more aesthetically pleasing look to your eyes. Many patients also report feeling like they have a more youthful and refreshed look.
What is the Cost of a Blepharoplasty?
In Northern Alabama, the cost of a blepharoplasty is between $2,500 and $6,000. This price is dependent on the amount of skin that needs to be corrected or removed and if it is just the upper or lower eyelid or both. Some blepharoplasty procedures are done for cosmetic reasons and are often times not covered by insurance. However, if an eyelid lift is needed to improve vision or functionality, it is possible that insurance may cover some of the procedure cost. The best way to gain an accurate cost for your procedure is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nease.
What is the Recovery Time Like?
Recovery after blepharoplasty is minimal. Patients will likely see some swelling and bruising, but it usually dissipates in a few days. It is recommended that those who went through an eyelid lift follow careful instruction from their doctor. This may include over-the-counter medication and cool compress. You can generally return to work and your normal activities in about 7-10 days. Full recovery is expected within 14 days of the procedure.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Blepharoplasty?
If you suffer from sagging and dull looking eyelids, then this procedure is right for you. If you are an adult in good health you may also be a great candidate for this procedure. You should expect realistic results and understand that the doctor will recommend the best course of treatment for your eye condition.
