Eyelid Lift

Strong eye contact and a healthy, energetic appearance are both signs of confidence and attractiveness. But sagging, drooping skin and puffiness beneath the eyes can send the wrong message, causing an angry, overly serious, or fatigued appearance, even if you feel great.

Eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty, restores a more vibrant, younger look. By removing excess, drooping skin above the eye and fat deposits under the eye, surgery can help to rid a “tired” look caused by puffiness and wrinkling or even improve peripheral vision affected by sagging skin.

Who can benefit from eyelid surgery?

Any man bothered by an aged, tired appearance around the eyes may benefit from blepharoplasty. By restoring a more energetic, alert and youthful appearance to the eyes, blepharoplasty can have life-enhancing benefits, including:

  • An improved self-image
  • Looking more healthy and happy
  • Renewed confidence in working with clients and colleagues
  • Improved field of peripheral vision

Blepharoplasty Details

Your surgeon will make an incision along the natural lines and creases of the upper eyelids, so any scar is virtually undetectable. Then excess skin, fat, and muscle is removed to restore a naturally youthful eyelid contour. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures.

Blepharoplasty surgery takes one to two hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure, and is performed with general anesthesia. Most blepharoplasty patients elect to have their procedures performed in our on-site surgery center. Our 5-star facility, the Clarkview Surgical Center, was designed with the safety, comfort, privacy, and convenience of our patients in mind. It features state-of-the-art technology and meets the most rigorous safety standards. We are proud to be one of the few outpatient surgical facilities to earn AAAHC accreditation, as well as certifications from Medicare and the state of Maryland. Because safety is our first concern, all surgical procedures are performed with board-certified anesthesiologists and registered nurses.

Recovery from Eyelid Surgery

Patients may experience some degree of bruising and swelling that progressively improves over 10 to 14 days. After the first day, you’ll be encouraged to get up and move around, although you will need to limit activity for the next 3 to 5 days following surgery. Most patients return to work within 7 to 10 days and resume exercise after 1 or 2 weeks. It is also important to protect your eyes from sun and wind following eyelid surgery.

A comprehensive approach to Facial Rejuvenation

At Belcara Health, our goal is to help you achieve a naturally youthful appearance that lasts for many years. In our experience, a strategic, customized approach helps patients achieve their goals most effectively. Combining other facial procedures with eyelid surgery can often achieve a more effective result:

What Does a Blepharoplasty Cost?

We understand that having a general range of procedure prices can be helpful, so we are happy to provide estimated price ranges for the plastic surgery procedures we perform.  However, it is important to note that these price ranges are general estimates only.

The best way to learn about plastic surgery pricing is to consult directly with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.  During your consultation, your surgeon will listen carefully to your concerns and goals and assess your medical history, lifestyle, and anatomy. Together, you and your surgeon will review all your treatment options and develop a personalized plan that meets all your needs. Only then are we able to provide an accurate price quote, which will include:

  • All visits before and after the procedure
  • Operating Room time and supplies
  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anesthesia fees
  • All medical devices, implants, and support materials

 Price Range for blepharoplasty procedures: $3,500 – $7,500
