Florida surgeons at Tallahassee Plastic Surgery perform a surgical procedure called blepharoplasty to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Blepharoplasty in Tallahassee restores smoothness to the area surrounding the eyes and makes patients look more rested and alert.
With eyelid lift surgery, Florida surgeons can treat:
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or hides the natural contour of the upper eyelid
- Excess skin that hangs down from the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
- Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper or lower eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
To develop realistic expectations regarding results, it is important to look over blepharoplasty before and after photos.
How Is Blepharoplasty Surgery Performed?
For upper eyelid surgery, also called upper blepharoplasty, an incision within the natural crease of the upper eyelid allows access to remove excess skin, muscle, and underlying fatty tissue.
For lower eyelid surgery, also called lower blepharoplasty, an incision inside the lower eyelid allows fat to be removed or redistributed and muscle to be modified. This corrects a baggy lower eyelid. Another option is an incision just below the lower lash line, which specifically allows excess skin to be removed.
The Blepharoplasty Recovery Process
Florida surgeons at Tallahassee Plastic Surgery say bruising should subside in 5-10 days and swelling should subside in 2-4 weeks. It’s best to keep one’s head elevated during the undereye bag surgery recovery process in order to aid in swelling reduction. Results improve 1-3 months as swelling decreases, but most patients see immediate changes. Incision lines will continue to refine and fade for 1 year.
How Much Does Blepharoplasty Cost?
The price of an eye lift is dependent on a variety of factors. The techniques used, the anesthesia fees, and the total time required to perform the procedure all affect eyelid surgery cost.
